Having loved Hollies first book, Baby Doll I couldn’t resist the opportunity to read her new novel.
The backdrop of continual ‘murder’ whilst going about you everyday life creates a brilliant atmosphere for the Texan setting of Kristy Tuckers story. Her fairy-tale prince turning into a monster creates a desperate environment – picking up the humiliation of the situation, the desire for it to not be true, but also allowing Kristy to use her knowledge of the system to her advantage.
I spent a large part of the book optimistically thinking I hope her Pops makes it through the book, and the baby killer really is innocent and is freed along with the hope she’d secretly take martial arts lessons. Looking back I’m glad Hollie didn’t grant all of my wishes!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
