but there are so many other suspects as well The chief detective on the case is Natalie, also a wife and mother yet is at the top of her game as far as her police work is concerned Natalie heads a great team of officers who are almost as driven as she is Another murder is committed during the hunt for the killer of the first victim and the team needs to find out if both crimes are the work of

book in the series, The Birthday, but this one could be read as a standalone novel The crime in this novel is completely separate from the crime in the first book, but there are continuing story arcs

perfectly as a standalone Written in an accessible and eminently readable style it s a fast paced, easy story to get through The two murders take place quite a way apart, and although you may think this would lead to a lull in the intensity, the time in between them is the part I actually enjoyed most This is because the secrets and blatant lies start to come to the fore and once they do everything just unravels and one by one we discover the deceit and duplicitous behaviour right alongside DI Ward and her team.It is mainly told from DI Ward s perspective, however, there are some chapters detailing the conversations between the unidentified killer and their therapist which really intrigued me and added further interest to the storyline Although there was not a lot of evidence for the investigators to go on, Wyer does a fantastic job of keeping you on the edge of your seat from the first to the last page DI Natalie Ward, like many women with both a career and a family, is juggling many different balls She s a very capable investigator who gets along with everyone due to her affable nature, but she has been dealt a bit of a bad hand when it comes down to luck This is captivating crime fiction with a distinct feeling of realism to it and plenty of thrills and spills to keep even the most discerning reader entertained.Many thanks to Bookouture for an ARC flag 21

investigation with DI Natalie and her team with Murray, Ian, Lucy, Mike at the helm Carol always has a strong main character, and Detective Natalie is just that But this time she is real to me, her problems at home with husband and kids weaved a string around my heart and made me like her a wee bit than the previous book As the lead detective, Natalie is awesome Carol, as usual, gives us a solid investigation without going into the macabre of death I like the way the author stays at the edge of the graphic details of the body I often wonder if Carol would dip down into gruesome minutiae but she never does She cleverly uses the reactions of others to tell us about the state of the body Clever writing One reaction says it all Police procedural with complete investigation, forensics, profiler, man hours put in by Natalie and her team make this a great wholesome read There is tension across the pages, each murder adds to the race, the dedication by the team at the cost of their personal life speeds up the reading, the nail biting finish along with a gripping last line left me with a book hangover I completed the book at precisely 2 40 am, and I couldn t stop thinking about

utterly gripping from the very first page With a multitude of red herrings, dead ends and lies and deceit to wade through, this is one insanely frustrating and complex investigation and I couldn t work it out at all I ended up suspecting pretty much every character I was introduced to.Once again, I really enjoyed the team dynamics but what really lit a fire in my belly was seeing Lucy taking centre stage, kicking ass and just being generally fierce Just like in the previous book, Carol Wyer manages to create a perfect balance between the team s personal lives and their jobs, giving the reader the opportunity to get to know them better But than anything, she always makes you almost sympathise with the killer and sometimes that s even unnerving than the actual murders they commit.Dark and disturbing, brilliantly paced and extremely compelling, Last Lullaby will have you flipping or swiping the pages faster as you go, keeping you on the edge of your seat throughout On top of that, we are left with a bit of a cliffhanger that has me rather impatiently awaiting the next instalment.I ve come to the conclusion that Carol Wyer can do no wrong in my eyes and I ll pick up pretty much anything she throws my way I can t wait for the next book in the Natalie Ward series Although I must admit, I do miss Robin flag 16 likesLike see review Oct 25, 2018 Robin Loves Reading rated it it

babysitter off he discovered her body.DI Natalie Ward is on a few days leave for much needed time with her family Her marriage may be in trouble so she really needs this time However, she is called to the gruesome murder scene along with her team When they arrive, many observations were made First and foremost, blessedly, the baby was unharmed Also, there was no evidence of a break in and between pictures on the bedroom wall was one word why.As always in murder investigations, those closest to the victim are under immediate suspicion Aside from Adam, Natalie speaks to others in Charlotte s life including the babysitter, as she apparently was the last to see her alive Also, two men were seen fleeing from the scene and the detectives work very hard to identify them Within a short period of time, quite a few facts are revealed about Charlotte s and Adam s marriage and their lives There was quite a bit of intrigue in this engaging story and I was caught up in the investigation This was especially so when two further things were mentioned in the book One, there was a mysterious individual in the story, but I will leave it at that Second, there was another mother murdered, with very similar circumstances Last Lullaby was ripe full of excellent character development, lots of twists and turns and a shocking conclusion It is the second book in the Natalie Ward series The first book was The Birthday, which was a fabulous read I daresay that this story is just as good, if not better Although it does well as a stand alone, I encourage readers to grab both of these stories, and everything else that Carol Wyer has penned She is extremely talented and writes compelling stories I very much look forward to continuing this series Reviewer s note This book is definitely worth five stars as it is extremely well written and has a very strong plot, but I did want to mention that there is a prevalence of strong language Many thanks to Carol Wyer and Bookouture for this ARC for

investigation puts pressure on the entire unit forcing them into long hours of work which puts a severe strain on Natalie s shaky marriage There are many suspects and no one seems to be telling the truth about their relationships with each other Motives abound Then another woman, Samantha, is stabbed in front of her child with the word, Who , painted in blood on the white fridge It looks like the police have a serial killer on their handsone who knew both women Then a third woman, along with her child, calls the station telling the detectives that she is fearful for her life NO SPOILERS.This was a book I couldn t put down as the case and the activity surrounding the investigation were so compelling so I read it in one sitting last night Lots of procedural details with interviews and seeking out information about all those involved Natalie and her fellow detectives are all over the city hunting down the suspects and sifting through the few clues and the many lies As a main character, Natalie is quite interesting and has a personality similar to most of the women described in novels of this genre plus she can t seem to keep her home life anywhere but on the back burner as she works ALL THE TIME Her issues with her husband notwithstanding, I wonder if her compulsion at her job is really normal for all detectives or just the female ones Sure I get that it s a major murder investigation, but these people rarely sleep, almost never eat anything but crisps and coffee or tea , and all of them must have relationship problems And don t get me started on how the women go from deep sleep to work in 15 minutes But, I digress I really did like the book and the plot was complicated enough to hook and reel me in The writing is top notch and I do hope that Natalie can be supportive of her own family as she moves up in the ranks at the police Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for this e book ARC to read and review I can t wait for the next in the series flag

myself actually taking an interest in her personal life with her husband and family The whole team working on this case in fact was enjoyable to read about The plot starts off incredibly well and contains for the most part a really strong mystery There s nothing over the top about this storyline, in fact it s quite basic in terms of here s a suspect let s look into him, and then repeat that with another suspect There s no theatrics or explosive scenes and I suppose that s why I got bored after a while This book is at least 20% longer than it needed to be There s a point in the story where it s blatantly obvious some of the suspects aren t going to be the killer and yet 15% later they are still in the frame When we meet one of the characters this is the one I chose as the killer and it turned out to be right But by the point of the reveal I was already starting to skim read because I felt like the story should have finished ages ago With so many exciting crime thrillers around it takes something special these days to hold my attention and unfortunately Last Lullaby failed to do that after about 60% into the story flag 6 likesLike see review Dec 06, 2018 Kat Dietrich

in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own.Series Background Warning May contain spoilers from previous books Natalie Ward is a strong female detective, but also a woman who is trying to juggle her job and her home life Her husband had a gambling problem and lost all their savings Then he lost his job, and he is now working from home He is feeling inadequate, and Natalie finds herself constantly having to massage his fragile ego Although she tries, she feels like she is neglecting her two children, even though they know that if she is on a murder investigation, it has to take precedence She is often torn.My Synopsis Charlotte Brannon, a prolific fashion blogger is brutally murdered, while her 6 month old little boy lay in his crib in the next room Charlotte s husband Adam is the prime suspect He had motive, means, and opportunity He also insists he is innocent His alibi is questionable, and his past is troubled.As the case evolves, Natalie finds that her investigation is being hindered by lies Everyone they question seems to be lying or omitting details that could help them solve this murder Even the baby sitter is hiding something Everyone has an alibi, but the team isn t sure if those can be trusted.When another woman is murdered in front of her young son, Natalie fears they may have a serial killer on their hands But there are connections between the two murdered women.Meanwhile, a psychiatrist is trying to interpret the dreams of a patient who seems to be enthralled with blood But are they dreams My Opinions I am really enjoying this series The writing is great, and Wyer is really building on the traits of her characters.The pace is fast, and therefore a very quick read The twists kept coming, so that I was sure I knew the perpetrator, and then I didn t.I admire Natalie, and her dedication to both her job and her family although I think she should give her husband a kick in the butt With this second book, we are seeing her team work closely, and we are learning about their lives This makes us crave the next bookat and the ending For a complete review of this book and others, please visit my blog flag 4 likesLike see review Dec

always looking forward to any new installments I was excited when I found out we were going to meet a new detective only a couple of months ago, and while I still prefer Detective Robyn Carter as a character, I have been looking forward to meet up with Detective Natalie Ward again Last Lullaby is without doubt a great sequel and a chance to learn about Natalie Ward and her team While I admit I m still not a fan of her, I liked how her team worked as a whole The writing is of course as strong as ever and part of the reason her detective thrillers work so well for me The same goes for the pace, plot and plot twists and the level of suspense The case they are investigating in Last Lullaby seems to be quite straightforward at first glance, but turns out to have so many layers I would never have guessed The plot twists are being executed brilliantly and the suspense is spot on, both only adding to the overall reading experience There are a lot of wrong turns here and I like how we get to have a glimpse inside the head of the killer without the identity being revealed Definitely a very strong case and a very strong sequel I will be looking forward to the next book.When Adam finds the battered body of her wife Charlotte Brannon in their bedroom, detective Natalie Ward and her team are called in to investigate Not only is her body badly beaten, but the killer has left a message on the wall the word why written in her blood As Natalie and her team begin digging into their lives, they discover both have been hiding a lot of secrets It s up to them to discover if they are related to the crime, and who is behind the death of the young mother.There is no doubt that Last Lullaby is a strong sequel and another excellent detective thriller by Carol Wyer I always enjoy her way of writing it s engaging and really makes you fly through the pages The case in this sequel is another fascinating one, especially since it s almost like a Russian doll with all those hidden layers slowly being discovered I love it when a story manages to surprise me and keeps me guessing about the identity of the killer until the final reveal And even though Natalie Ward still isn t a favorite of mine, I m still looking forward seeing of especially her team as a whole hide spoiler P.S Find of my reviews here. flag 3 likesLike see review Jan 11, 2019 Pat rated it liked it Last Lullaby sees
