Daisy in Chains by Sharon Bolton

6DA848D6-0E2E-4A4E-AE03-3F852EA03F9DRight after I finished Dead Woman Walking I wanted more from Sharon Bolton. Luckily she has written a bunch of books, though most of them are in a series. I didn’t want to jump into a series, so I bought myself a copy of “Daisy in Chains,” despite the fact that I have something like 1,000 ebooks on my Kindle and probably another 1,000 or so physical books just waiting for me to read them (in fact the next 3 books I plan on reading come from the library).

This book is more of a character study than anything else, and it does include a few shocking twists (though I did guess one of the twists).

There are murders, blue hair, gypsies, and a creepy amusement park visit during a winter’s night. What’s not to like?

Once again Bolton deploys short chapters that keep you guessing. I didn’t want to put this book down, and I gobbled it up from start to finish. I was even tempted to just jump right into Bolton’s series… but then my book debt guilt kicked in so I decided to read the books I had picked up from the library. I will be reading more Bolton soon!

Who should read it: If you like thrillers and serial killers this book is for you!
