Lost Child by D.S. Butler

There isn’t much that I didn’t enjoy with this book. Butler does a nice job of pacing, character development, and backstory. She kept me guessing, and it was nice to not be able to predict the ending. This was one of my favorite reads of 2017, and I look forward to more of her books.

If you normally stay away from books about children, this one is safe to read.

My Sister’s Bones, by Nuala Ellwood

I enjoyed this book, but I felt like it came up short in a few areas. It seemed as if Ellwood tried to make it a psychological thriller as well as a novel on the effects of PTSD. I’m not saying that can’t be done, but I don’t think either were fully accomplished. The ending actually held a nice twist, so it wasn’t exactly expected. I gave it 3.5 stars and rounded up to 4.
