Flowers For The Dead by Barbara Copperthwaite / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @BCopperthwait



He sees her. The one. The sunglasses don’t fool anyone, she is clearly upset, her nose and lips swollen from crying. They are two lost souls and he knows his love can help her. After all, she is not the first girl he has followed home…

Adam is the perfect boyfriend. He pays attention, he buys flowers. He knows everything about Laura and looks after her every need. He cooks, he cleans – he even does the dishes without being asked.

But Laura has never met Adam. Still grieving after a devastating car crash that killed her family, she’s forgetful and struggling to pull her life together. She’d be horrified to know the depth of this unsettling fantasy in which she is the star. But there’s no denying the chill she feels every time she finds another elaborate bouquet on her doorstep, or wakes in the night sensing she is not alone.

Adam has been watching her every move, and now it’s time to act. Except, there’s one little detail he’s missed: Laura has been watching him too.

After everything she’s been through, Laura’s ready to fight back and stop being the victim in her own life story. But in Adam’s world, there are no happy endings…




I have read one book before by this author and I was a big fan. This one is another OMG book that I thoroughly enjoyed. It was just brilliant.

Children are influenced by so many people when they are growing up. The most important ones are the parents and they are often responsible for their offspring’s mental health. When something goes wrong that’s when the ‘fun’ starts. Well, what  some call fun, means a nightmare for others.

Sometimes you hate the killer. Sometimes you feel for them. This time my heart broke…

The author takes us to the past to fill us in on the background story of the killer and to explain why he does what he does. At the same time we are on the front row in the present witnessing every single action.

I loved it and can’t wait for a new book by this writer. 5 stars? Of course!!

Thank you, Barbara Copperthwaite and Bookouture


About the author

Barbara is the Amazon and USA Today bestselling author of psychological thrillers INVISIBLE, FLOWERS FOR THE DEAD, THE DARKEST LIES, and HER LAST SECRET.

More importantly, she loves cakes, wildlife photography and, last but definitely not least, her two dogs, Scamp and Buddy (who force her to throw tennis balls for them for hours).

Having spent over twenty years as a national newspaper and magazine journalist, Barbara has interviewed the real victims of crime – and also those who have carried those crimes out. She is fascinated by creating realistic, complex characters, and taking them apart before the readers’ eyes in order to discover just how much it takes to push a person over a line.

When not writing feverishly, she is often found hiding behind a camera, taking wildlife photographs.
