No comments

I would like to thank NetGalley, and Thomas& Mercer for an ARC of “The Roses of May” by Dot Hutchison for my honest review.
The genres of this novel are Mystery and Thriller, and General Fiction (Adult). This is the second book following “The Butterfly Garden” by Dot Hutchison.
This takes place approximately four months after the explosion of the Garden where young girls known as “Butterflies” were captive. Some have survived and have to heal.
The characters are described as complicated and complex. Three of the FBI agents from the first book are in this book, Brandon, Eddison, Victor Hanoverian and Mercedes Ramirez.
In “The Roses of May”, the author describes Priya, the sister of a victim that had been killed five years before. Priya is suspicious of her surroundings, and tries to be tough. She has conflicted feelings, and at times is depressed and angry at what happened to her sister. Priya and her mother move several times in order to be safe. Priya’s mother is described as dominant, and protective of her daughter. Priya and her mother have been in touch with the three FBI agents.
Someone has been stalking Priya and is leaving a variety of flowers that are significant on Priya’s doorstep.
Who is the stalker? Who has killed Priya’s sister and other people? What is their motivation?
I found this a tense. suspenseful, action packed thriller with twists and turns. I would recommend this book as an intriguing mystery and thriller.
