The Chosen Ones by Carol Wyer BlogBlitz #Review

I am super excited to share my review for The Chosen Ones  (Detective Robyn Carter Book 5) on blog blitz today

The Book

On a hot summer’s morning, a young father is found murdered in a cornfield, outside the quiet town of Colton. Tied to a post, arms spread wide; Detective Robyn Carter is reminded of the crucifixion, and she knows she’s looking for a killer with a twisted sense of right and wrong.

The victim’s girlfriend is devastated, unable to fathom how she will tell her sick little boy. Still reeling from her own loss, Robyn vows she will find the killer – no matter what.

But then a local doctor – a popular woman with a young family of her own – is found dead outside her surgery. There are similarities between her and the first body and Robyn must take another look at the picture-postcard town, where no one has any enemies.

Can Robyn untangle the hidden web of secrets, lies, and smouldering grudges, at the heart of this close-knit community, before another life is lost?

An absolutely unputdownable thriller that will keep you reading into the night. If you love Angela Marsons, James Patterson or Tess Gerritsen, The Chosen Ones will have you hooked.

My Thoughts

You know you are onto a winning book when it starts off with an OMFG prologue well I am happy to report that The Chosen Ones is just that….Yes the whole book is winner. I flipping loved it.

I have to say that I cannot believe that this is the fifth Robyn Carter book that I have read since January 2017 and the quality of the author’s writing is has good, if not better than the first one that I read in the series. I don’t know about you but when I follow a series I am always a little nervous has to whether the latest book is has good as the last one. But the author has totally nailed it and needs to give herself a pat on the back. You guys are going to love it.

I love the fact that this series is set local to me so knowing the setting makes it more exciting and gets me thinking what if this actually happened,the author makes it all seem so very real.

The Chosen ones is one hell of a nail biting story that is full of tension and suspense. I read this in one sitting talk about a page turner, I found myself racing to end to unravel the story. 

This can be read has a standalone but is to good a series not to miss and you will get more of an idea of background information with the characters .Robyn is a character you cannot help but like. 

But there is nothing not to like about this book when we follow Robyn on the hunt for a gruesome killer. Carol certainly knows how to tease the reader and keeps you guessing until the end. Building the layers up of an whodunit story.

I cannot recommend this enough giving it all the freaking stars!
