The Chosen Ones by Carol Wyer @carolewyer #BlogTour @bookouture #Review

Thank you for stopping by I'm thrilled to be sharing my review for the brilliant The Chosen Ones by Carol Wyer. First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...

The Chosen Ones: A completely gripping murder mystery thriller with unputdownable suspense (Detective Robyn Carter Book 5)

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.

Well where do I start with my review other than to say that I simply loved this book there was the usual banter between Robyn and her team and an investigation that had twists galore. The pacing of the story was solid with revelations timed to answer some questions but also pose some more which made me so invested in figuring everything out!

This entire series of books has been brilliant and The Chosen Ones is another example of this especially the character of Robyn Carter. I have to say that she is one of my favourite characters in any series. I love her determination and strength especially when it comes to solving her cases. After finishing The Silent Children I had been itching to pick up the next book. I have to suggest reading them in order as some of the characters background could be confusing but it is such a great series that it would be well worth starting with book one.

The grisly murders definitely added a tense and gritty edge to the story and I was instantly intrigued as to who was committing the murders and of course asking myself why. I always find it interesting to see the investigation play out and Robyn and her team are almost like family now as they work so well together especially in this case to solve the pretty creepy and unusual deaths. I enjoy the fact that Carol Wyer has created a well rounded character in Robyn as she does have a personal story to tell but it is always balanced out with the crimes that are being investigated. In this story we delve even more into Robyn's past and I was so intrigued to discover more. Sorry to sound vague but I would hate to give anything away.

Carol Wyer has created some truly brilliant characters and always gives her readers a story filled with surprises, shocks and thrills!

A big five stars from me!
