Nobody’s Child by Victoria Jenkins @vicwritescrime @bookouture #BookReview #BlogTour

Happy Saturday all! Thrilled to be part of the blog tour for the third book in this wonderful crime series… many thanks to Noelle for my invitation and to Victoria Jenkins for this intriguing story🕵🏻‍♀️🕵🏻‍♀️


Nobody’s Child by Victoria Jenkins is an unputdownable crime thriller that will have you hooked (Detectives King and Lane Book 3)


An absolutely gripping mystery thriller with a jaw-dropping twist. This book will hook you from page one and keep you reading ‘just one more chapter’ late into the night. 

On a damp October day, a body is found in an abandoned hospital, too burnt to be identified, but Detective Alex King knows that every victim is someone’s daughter or son.

Pushing aside her own troubles, Alex puts everything into finding the killer, but when someone else is found dead, she begins to suspect that the body in the hospital was just the first of many.

Just as Alex uncovers a heartbreaking link between the victims, she finds her own safety under threat. Is this a figure from her past hell-bent on revenge, or could the murderer be even nearer than she thinks?

Alex is running out of time. Can she catch the killer before they take another life, or will they get to her first?

A completely unputdownable detective thriller that will keep you up all night. Readers of Robert Bryndza, Karin Slaughter and Angela Marsons will love this.

My Thoughts

4 Tense Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Another fabulous police procedural series with a couple strong female detectives… this is the third book in the series and I would recommend starting with book one, just so you get all the wonderful character development…. in this series you get two detectives for the price of one… Alex King and Chloe Lane…. this book focused on Alex more than Chloe and I have to admit I find Chloe a little more relatable… really do like the friendship between these women, although it was put to the test in this book….

A burned up body found in an abandoned hospital… The discovery of several more bodies… a hate crime… and somebody is after Alex herself…. this book was tense from prologue to the end…. A couple reveals that definitely caught me offguard…. this book will absolutely appeal to all you crime thriller lovers, it was filled with a lot of twists and turns…

Strongly recommend to fans of police procedurals with strong female detectives…

The Next Girl

Arriving To Thrill You Today – April 2, 2018

The Next Girl by Carla Kovach

4 Bold Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟


She thought he’d come to save her. She was wrong. 

Deborah Jenkins pulls her coat around her as she sets out on her short walk home in the pouring rain. But she never makes it home that night. And she is never seen again …

Four years later, an abandoned baby girl is found wrapped in dirty rags on a doorstep. An anonymous phone call urges the police to run a DNA test on the baby. But nobody is prepared for the results.

The newborn belongs to Deborah. She’s still alive.

If you love Lisa Gardner, Patricia Gibney and Robert Bryndza, you’ll love this jaw-dropping new crime thriller from Carla Kovach. The Next Girl will keep you guessing until the very last page.


Well, this was absolutely a wonderful start to this new series…. I might need to rethink my entire I don’t necessarily always like police procedural thing… because the last few I have really enjoyed…. maybe I like them better when they take place in the UK? so I should modify it to I don’t always necessarily enjoy police procedural stories unless they take place in the UK….

This series focuses on Gina Hart a detective somewhere in the UK…. i’m sure the exact setting of this book was mentioned, however it is not coming to mind and it doesn’t even matter because the plot and the characters were so fabulous…. I usually focus a lot on the characters and I did like Gina and I’m really looking forward to see her character grow throughout the series… however I have to give it to this amazing plot it kept me enthralled….

What would you do if your wife the mother of your children went missing without a trace? What if it was your daughter who went missing? How would you handle the day today, how would you move on? And what would you do when a baby who was abandoned at the library turned out to be a DNA match to your missing wife/Daughter? Debra has been missing for over four years and now little baby Isabel has turned up… her mother is Debra, but where is Debra? Not only did we get the point of view of Gina, but we also got the point of view of Luke Debra‘s husband and Deborah herself….. oh and I mustn’t forget the point of view of Debra‘s kidnapper and he was as creepy and delusional as you would expect….

Really enjoyed how the story unraveled…. you know the kidnapper was somebody who had some connection to Debra’s life, but who was it? Love all the different points of views… couldn’t even imagine how Luke would deal with the situation especially because he had just begun dating somebody else…. and I have to admit I always enjoy being in the mind of the antagonist… Love the thought process of the crazy person especially how they justify their actions…..

Strongly recommend to fans of crime fiction, police procedurals, and a book with a very strong plotline…..
