The young woman standing on Lottie’s step was a stranger. She was clutching the hand of a young boy. ‘Help me,’ she said to Lottie. ‘Please help me.’
One Monday morning, the body of a young pregnant woman is found. The same day, a mother and her son visit the house of Detective Lottie Parker, begging for help to find a lost friend.
Could this be the same girl?
When a second victim is discovered by the same man, with the murder bearing all the same hallmarks as the first, Lottie needs to work fast to discover how else the two were linked. Then two more girls go missing.
Detective Lottie Parker is a woman on the edge, haunted by her tragic past and struggling to keep her family together through difficult times. Can she fight her own demons and catch the killer before he claims another victim?
I liked the book, the case was very interesting and here too we see how all wars are destructive, not only physically but also morally. Of course, not all soldiers are bad, but there are those who do not respect morality. Not only certain peoples, but everyone has these episodes. And given the times we’re living in, I wonder how many Rhea and Mimoza or Andrei are in Ukraine right now.
So you may probably have seen that I haven’t been posting new book reviews. I think I burned out. I’m still reading but completed only half of my challenges because reading only for challenges isn’t funny anymore. I still keep track of the books I read, I still keep track of the challenge those books are part of but I’m not updating everything (and maybe I had too many things to update). If I don’t write reviews I can’t updates my categories here so that’s why you won’t see any difference and writing review in two languages is so tiring. Moreover next year I will have my own business to look after so less time to read and even less time to write reviews that make sense (I still write mini reviews on my Notion book diary but I don’t have to check the Italian when I write there or the spelling).
So I’m thinking on posting only what I read to have a continuation without maxi review, because I like this website, what I’ve done in 10+ years of it being online even though it was basically a graphic site back then.
Will I be part of challenges in 2023? I don’t know. The Goodreads one, yes. But I don’t know about the others. I haven’t even posted the links to the reviews I did on the wrap up pages of any challenges so forfaiting any possible giveaway. So we will see that I can do next year.

This week question:
Which time of day do you prefer to read: morning, afternoon, or evening? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)
No preferred time but I tend to not read in the morning unless I’m on vacation and I’m tired of sunbathing.
All my book reviews are and will be 100% honest. I don’t get paid to write them and I don’t get “gifts” to write a good review so what I write is what I think. If I love a book, I’m going to say that, if I don’t like a book, I will write why I don’t. My critics aren’t an attack to the author, they are just how I feel about a subject or a style.
