  • A compelling story

    A woman is found murdered in her home, her child screaming in its cot. She is found with a razor blade in her hand. Another woman and her son disappear separately. This woman’s car is found by a lake, empty, but an envelope with an address and razor blade are found in the car. The address in the envelope yields an old crime scene where a lot of blood is found, including in a small cot and more razor blades are found at the address. A small body is found buried by a tree at the top of a hill. How are all these events connected? Set in the Irish town of Ragmullin DI Lottie Parker and her team are run off their feet trying to solve all these cases and find the missing child alive. It is clear that a lot of the people involved are somehow connected and/or know something but nobody is talking. This is a very convoluted case indeed and I had no chance of unravelling it. There are so many secrets and so many red herrings and so many suspects it almost made my head spin, in a good way. The tension got very thick the further we got into the story and it was not a given who would live and who would die! I have read all the books in this series and along the way have come to know the characters very well. This can be read as a stand alone but you do miss a fair bit of the background. Lottie and DS Boyd’s romance is on the back burner again as he gets a letter that could blow up his life but that will be for the next book. Lottie herself is still struggling to juggle motherhood with her career but the three children are growing up and seem to be able to manage quite well. I should think the whole team will need a holiday after the conclusion of this awful case that has wrung them all out. Thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for the much appreciated arc which I reviewed voluntarily and honestly.

  • Little Bones

    Patricia Gibney doesn't disappoint. I've read all 10 books in the series. I like Lottie Parker. She's a strong woman who struggles to get the job done. We get to see what's going on inside her head, she makes mistakes, she's not perfect, but she has a good staff helping her. She keeps you guessing right to the end, a real page turner.

  • 4.25⭐ An engaging and well detailed mystery.

    Little Bones is the first police procedural I've read that is set in Ireland and also the first by author Patricia Gibney and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed my trip across the Irish Sea. As this was an engaging mystery that was extremely well detailed and had me thoroughly absorbed throughout. Furthermore, the plot kept me guessing and as a new reader the characters personal and professional relationships were easy to follow. Plus, main protagonist Lottie Parker intrigued me enough to want to read the books I've so far missed out on. Would happily recommend. **I was kindly provided with an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great addition to series!😊

    👩‍👦⌛👩‍👧Imperiled mothers and children; so many shady characters! This is a really good whodunit series set in Ireland with a strong female detective who's got a few wrinkles in her off-hours life. Lottie Parker is a widow, mother and grandmother, so a spate of murder and disappearances of mothers and a small child keeps her on the case in Little Bones with little rest or sleep. Interview after interview of family, employers and colleagues bring frustratingly little in the way of clues or even confirmation of whether the cases are linked. Added to that, some seemingly unrelated old skullduggery turns up and taxes the already overextended gardai and forensic investigative resources. Little Bones has plenty of twists and tight-lipped, shady characters, keeping the mystery going and the urgency of the chase tense. With a new wrinkle in almost every chapter, it kept my interest and left me guessing (no, I had no clue) right up until the intense action climax. This is the fourth novel I've read in this series and my enthusiasm for the series remains high. Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for sharing a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest opinion.

    Thanks for your feedback!
