Fireproof is the tenth installment in the Maggie O’Dell series. It tells the story of a series of arsons that Maggie is tasked to profile and runs concurrently alongside the beginning of a case of a serial killer, killing people at rest stops along the highway.
If you’ve read the series before you’ll be glad to know that all our favourite characters are back. Agent Tully is joined with Maggie once again, to profile the arsonist and determine if he is causing the body count that seems out of place in the buildings being set fire to.
This story starts a bit like The Red Dahlia – the second book in La Plante’s Anna Travis series – whereby the lead detective on a case dies/becomes incapacitated by ill health, and so a new detective has to take their place. This happens to be a woman called Jane Tennison, in this case, and she has to jump straight into a well liked, older, respected male colleague’s place – against the wishes of his loyal subordinates.
First of all, thank you to Raven Books for sending me this beautiful hardback copy of The Flower Girls to read and review. It was so wonderfully packaged when I received it, I almost didn’t want to open it. But I was so glad I did, this was a FANTASTIC read!
Every so often we like to do a book swap. Kate likes YA mainly and Becca enjoys thrillers. It’s good to try something different, so we came up with a book swap where we each give each other one of our reads and see what the other thinks.
This month we did ‘The Single Girl’s To Do List’ by Lindsey Kelk (being Kate’s chic lit choice) and ‘Pretty Girls’ by Karin Slaughter (being Becca’s thriller choice). Here’s what we each thought of our respective swaps!Read More »
One of my all time favourite books, is Above Suspicion by Lynda La Plante. I read it such a long time ago and I absolutely loved it as soon as I started it. The Red Dahlia is the second book in the Anna Travis series, and I’ve wanted to read it for ages.
This year, Kate and I tried out the Icelandic tradition of Jokabokaflod – where we exchanged books on Christmas eve to be read throughout the day/night. Now, while I didn’t get much reading done on Christmas eve, I have made up for it since and this was just such a fantastic read. I’m super thankful that I got it from Kate, so thank you 🙂Read More »
