A mind blowing thriller

My Review

Omg what a book! I knew author Anni Taylor was fantastic. With Lullaby Man she blew my mind away, and I still have butterflies in my stomach at the twists in the story. The reveals oh my freak!! They twisted my insides, and no part of me was left unaffected. I couldn’t take a single deep breath while writing this review. The book kept me in throes of excitement.

Though this was the book 2 in Kate Wakeland series, this book could be read as a standalone. Kate’s daughter Abby came to her with the secrets of her childhood when she was fourteen years old about a Lullaby Man. Kate had to investigate and get to the truth. Believe me, a rotten apple in a bushel.

My second book by this talented author, I already gushed about her in book 1, One Last Child. Check my review here. And I was right, I read this book with bated breath. I was addicted to the story and couldn’t move from my couch until I got to the last page.

The investigation was thorough and detailed, and I could see the strength in Kate reflecting in every chapter. Her brilliant partnership with Detective Franco made me glad she had support in her corner. The writing made smooth inroads into darker alleys of society, with some jaw-dropping twists, and the last few chapters had me gripping my kindle so hard, that I was sure there would be permanent fingerprints on it.

Anni Taylor is one fantastic author whose first book made me excited, the second twisted, eagerly awaiting the third. It is simply one heck of a thriller!! A must read!! Just a warning – once you start, you can’t stop!!

Book Blurb

A decade ago, The Lullaby Man preyed upon young girls in Tallman’s Valley. He stole into their lives, whispered in their ears, spoke of love…

But only the girls themselves ever knew about him.

Abby Wakeland was fourteen then. Now twenty-four, she’s found the courage to tell her mother–Senior Detective Kate Wakeland–about what happened.

What she reveals will lead Kate down dark, twisting tunnels of discoveries that will blow this small town apart.

I downloaded a digital copy of the book from an online retail site, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

  1. HA! I also raced to NG and put in a request. and no, didn’t read the first book. i love when the protagonist is older, more mature, greater wisdom, settled, blah, blah, blah. well, none of that describes me. i’m past that. hey, your site changed again? no problem with comments now–maybe that was only on my cell phone?

    • This was something different. Hope you like it. This has dark elements Gin, but the author just touches on it. Nothing graphic
      And I am so thankful to you. Your one comment triggered me to read up and unclutter my blog. I had to read up quite a bit to do that.. Thank you sooooo much.
      Glad that comment box is visible.
      Now I just wish this block editor is easier takes me a long time to get it done. On the phone they don’t have the reusable blocks so I have to keep switching it is a pain, I tell ya
