Roses of May (The Collector #2) Reviews
The Roses of May is the 2nd book in “The Collector Series” trilogy by Dot Hutchison but it is not a direct sequel to The Butterfly Garden. Instead, it’s a story about a completely different serial killer whose been killing one girl every spring for over a decade and leaving each of them covered in a different flower. It also has a brand new main character, Priya Sravasti, whose sister was one of the killer’s victims 5 years ago.
The Roses of May isn’t a story with the same horror, depravity, and ...more
I'm marking this one as a DNF. The Butterfly Garden was a four star read for me. Something different albeit the ending didn't quite hit the spot. However, I'm a fair way into this one and it just isn't engaging with me at all. The scenes jump around all over the place and the detail is convoluted with too much unnecessary detail that doesn't really drive the storyline on. If I'm intermittently in the 'mind wandering zone and having to reread pages because I can't remember what I have read then i ...more

Wow... Dot Hutchison has done it again!!! Her imagination is scary, creepy and absolutely brilliant!

Hanoverian, Eddison, and Ramirez, “The Quantico 3”, are ...more

I read The Butterfly Garden in 2016 and it was truly a captivating thriller. When I saw that the second book was out, I requested it from NetGalley right away. The problem was that I was too late getting to it and ended up having to purchase the book. I didn’t mind because I expected that I would love this one as much as the first.
The story follows Priya, a girl who lost her sister Chavi four years ago after she was murdered. Priya and ...more
Oh boy. Where to start. I knew I shouldn’t have complained about the dang ending in the previous book. Deep breath. So last year I stumbled upon a novel titled The Butterfly Garden on NetGalley and decided it looked equal parts disturbing and beautiful, and it was both of those things and so much more. I have raved about that book for well over a year now, and if the ending hadn’t thrown in a few unnecessary details in attempting a shocking twist, it would have been my favorite read of the entir ...more
