Pretty Little Things Reviews
Missing children or teens seem to be popular in psychological thrillers, but each one I have read so far, including this, brings something unique within its premise. I found it difficult to put down as I read the last 20% which revealed a totally unexpected ending.
With thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for this ARC in exchange for an open and honest review..
I enjoyed reading T.M.E Walsh's three books in the DCI Claire Winters series, So I was excited when I heard the author was due to release a new book featuring DI Madeleine Wood.
Pretty Little Fears is not for the squeamish. There was a killer at work targeting teenage girls in the small villages around Milton Keynes. Four girls were missing until they were found by kids in a disused holiday village ...more
This book started off good. It started off really good. Girls disappear. Bodies are found. Obviously there is a serial killer at work. Parallel to this story is the story of Charlotte dealing with the aftermath of a horrific car accident. Then the two stories seem to merge. But then, somewhere at about 75% of the way through, the wheels fall off the wagon and the wagon (analogy for the story) falls off the side of a cliff into the abyss of roll your eyes unbelievable. And while I realize that th ...more
i thought i knew who the killer was. and that would have made my rating about 3 stars.
and yet - astonishingly - the real identity of the killer was even worse.
i'm not going to mince words:
and i don't mean that in a jokey "omg fuck this book it was so good". no. genuinely, fuck this book to the deepest depths of hades.
i'm not surprised, but saddened that this was published. we do NOT need anymore fucking demonisation of mental illness in the world. is "mental health awareness" ...more
4.5 stars for a really brilliant thriller..It seemed that this was going to be pretty straightforward but oh no it wasn’t at all ..what an ending!! I was totally shocked and oh how I love that. Many many thanks to T.M.E, Walsh for writing a book with a truly gobsmacking twist I loved it.
WOW! This was one fast past page turner, seriously this book needs to get out there to the masses and be read, thoroughly enjoyable story line, lots of detail and gore ( sorry i am twisted and loved that!) shocking actually in parts toward the end and quite sad to0.
Great characters and superbly written, i for one will definitely be reading more books from this author.
I think most of us that read a lot, especially the psychological style thrillers etc, you i suppose become immune to a lot of twis ...more
Seriously, it’s a wicked plot. The solution comes completely out of left field, it’s a bit like being slapped unexpectedly up the side of the head with a really fat wet kipper, and then just standing there completely dumbstruck. *Bows down to the author*
It’s fair to say that things haven’t been the same for Charlotte since she was involved in a nearly fatal accident a few months ago. Her face is scarred, which makes her feel insecure, and her memory is as reliable as a leaky tap. The di ...more
I have been itching to read T.M.E Walsh’s DCI Claire Winters series for a while now and after finishing Pretty Little Things I have bumped them right to the top of my TBR pile. Seriously, why haven’t I got round to reading them sooner? Pretty Little Things is one heck of a psychological thriller, T.ME. Walsh writes so well and she kept me flicking the pages.
At the beginning of the novel, we delve straight into the mind of a serial killer. This was a seriously creepy opening that set the tone of ...more
