Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Intriguing Action Packed #CrimeThriller – Three Widows by Patricia Gibney

My Review:

What an action packed crime thriller - 
Complete with family dramas and a serial killer!
With DI Lottie Parker leading the case
With lots of personal dramas of her own to face.

A young widow disappears out of sight
Leaving her two children in the middle of the night.
Where did she go, who took her and why?
Then her body is found. Why did she have to die?

A brutal killer is somewhere near
Members of a widows group need to fear.
When another member isn't to be found
Is she another victim buried in the ground?

A support group seems to hold the key
To helping to solve this crime mystery.
But they're keeping secrets, not giving clues -
Why? What do they have to lose?

With problems at her home and for Boyd, too,
As well as catching the killer to do,
A work life balance is hard to achieve and so
Something somewhere will have to go.

A gripping, gruesome story full of twists and more
To keep you guessing as the clues you explore.
A crime thriller with detectives who have many flaws
And a plot to keep you reading, not wanting to pause.

Book Description:

She kissed her daughter, turned out the light and entered her own room. Too late to run, she stood frozen as a figure stepped out from behind the door and a hand covered her mouth. Fear was a bomb in her chest ready to explode. Her children. They’d already lost their daddy; they couldn’t lose her too.

When young widow Éilis Lawlor disappears in the middle of the night, with her two little children asleep in their beds, it is a chilling case for Detective Lottie Parker. Since her husband’s tragic death, Éilis is all her children have, and when Lottie sees Éilis’s house keys and phone still lying on the kitchen counter, she is terrified for the vulnerable mother’s safety.

Then Éilis’s broken body is found by a nearby lake, wrapped in an unfamiliar yellow dress, her mouth sealed with duct tape – and Lottie’s worst fears are confirmed. Someone wanted this beautiful widow dead.

Desperate to find the person behind this brutal crime, Lottie discovers that Éilis was a member of a support group for widows. And when Jennifer, a close friend of Éilis’s from the group, is found on a rubbish heap, wrapped in a yellow dress, Lottie vows to get justice.

Lottie dives into Jennifer’s past, and learns that she had lived a reclusive life since her husband died. She hadn’t been seen at work for months and had sheltered inside her immaculate home, only emerging for meetings with the group. But when Lottie questions the other women about Jennifer’s isolation, they claim to know nothing.

Lottie is certain that the remaining widows are hiding something. Can she uncover the truth before another innocent life is lost?

An absolutely gripping and totally addictive thriller that will keep you racing through the pages all night long. Fans of Robert Dugoni, Rachel Caine and Karin Slaughter will devour Three Widows in one sitting!
