Christopher Harns is a lonely boy who's never fitted in, he's always been the black sheep of the family. Until one day Christopher finds a suitcase in the family attic when secrets start to get exposed. Everything changes. Finally, Christopher has a chance at happiness, what will he do to keep hold of it?

I found this book hard to get on with, I found it to be a really slow starter and it didn't seem to pick up. I couldn't  get into the story. I can't quite put my finger on what it is that made this book so unappealing for me, It just didn't keep me wanting to read on, it didn't hold my interest and unfortunately, I was unable to finish the book. For this reason, I am unable to give this book a full review. 

Thank You to NetGalley and the publishers for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Darby McCormick is back in the third book of the series. When a mother and son are violently attacked, Darby and her team are called in to investigate.The further Darby digs, the more secrets come to the surface, with a dead man's fingerprints appearing at the crime scene, can Darby figure out the puzzle before it's too late? 

I am really enjoying this series, I love following Darby and her team. This series has quickly become one of my favourite series this year. I find myself unable to put the book down once I start it. I find the plot of each book to be really interesting, a new murder mystery in each book, but with smaller more personal stories for each character continuing from each book, linking them all together. I find myself getting really involved with the characters and also getting lost in the story which to me is the sign of a great read and an excellent book. As a reader you want to be sucked into the world of the book you are reading and transported there, you want to feel like your part of the story and for me, this series does just that. 

I am really enjoying these books so much I have literally just spent my last £3.99 on the next book.
