#Review The Girls In The Lake by Helen Phifer #BooksOnTour @bookouture @helenphifer1

I am super excited to be kicking off The Girls In The Lake Blog Tour which is out today

Peering over the side of the boat, the glare of early morning sun catches on something pale in the inky water. The boy’s curious fingertips break the surface, pulling up a tangle of long blonde hair from the reeds below…

The discovery of a young student floating face down in Lake Windermere, her naked skin almost translucent in the freezing water, looks like yet another tragic teen suicide. But the victim’s lack of clothes make Forensic Pathologist Beth Adams want to investigate further. Anything to distract her from the arrival of her abusive ex-boyfriend’s body on the mortuary table that morning.

With witnesses keeping tight-lipped and any clues washed away by the tides, it’s up to Beth to find the evidence her team needs. But then another girl is found in the lake, this time still clinging to life. She tells them she was at a party on a boat, and that she was pushed…

As more bodies surface, Beth finds tiny traces of boat paint present on each victim. It’s a critical lead that links these attacks back to a tragic accident involving a group of school children years ago.

Faced with a killer hungry for revenge, and with her own life spiralling out of control, it’s going to take every ounce of skill and determination for Beth to catch this monster before he takes another innocent life. But will Beth realise he’s been right beside her all along?

An absolutely unputdownable serial killer thriller that will have you sleeping with the lights on. Fans of Patricia Gibney, LJ Ross and Angela Marsons will have to hold on tight for this nail-biting rollercoaster ride!

My Thoughts

OMG this book! There is so many thing I want to say that I dont know where to start. After loving the first one so much I had high expectations for this one and I sure has hell wasn’t disappointed. Helen has totally nailed it and left me hanging with that ending!!! I so can’t wait for the third book.

With an OMG start and an OMG ending what more can I say this book is utterly brilliant. I read it in a matter of hours, I simply couldn’t put it down.

It is addictive, nail biting and action packed and totally kept me on the edge of my seat.

I have said this before and I will say it again I love the fact that Beth is a Forensic Pathologist making her a unique character. She is determined and will go the extra mile has show in this story. We also see an emotional side with the goings on in her personal life. Come on Josh sort it out!

This can be read has a standalone when though it is the second book in the series. But this is to good a series to miss which I cannot recommend enough. Giving it all the stars.
