And finally I get around to telling you about the book that the lovely people at MIRA sent me to review. The Lies We Tell is the second main book in the Undertaker’s Daughter series. It COULD be read on its own as a standalone story as you do get a reprise of a lot of the salient points as the book moves along but it is much more satisfying to read them in order.
Rowan is now acutely aware that she is the main target for Julian Addington the serial killer. She knows that he is just watching and waiting for his chance to get close to her again. Under close scrutiny from both the FBI and local law enforcement Rowan hates knowing that she is putting other people’s lives at risk while Addington is fixated on her.
Working closely with the local police chief Billy Brannigan a recent double homicide leads to an even more grisly discovery. Could there really be a second serial killer at work in the small town of Winchester?
In many ways I found this to be the more satisfying of the Undertaker books so far. Webb spends less time rehashing the stories of the dead Mom and the drowned sister and Rowan gets more time spent delving into new clues and working through the new information that she is discovering about her family. And of course it wouldn’t be a Webb suspense thriller without a cliffhanger ending!
