Last goodbye – Arlene Hunt

You’re young. You’re in love. You’re in terrible danger…

‘The woman’s body lay on the bed, hair fanned out in a golden halo, blue eyes open. On the table stood an unmistakable sign: a bouquet of bright yellow roses…’

On a freezing January morning, a young couple is found dead in their cottage in the quiet Dublin suburbs. When Detective Eli Quinn arrives at the scene his stomach drops. It’s the second double homicide in as many months where the killer has left a bunch of yellow roses.

Tucked between the thorns is a little card, with an image of a broken heart. There’s no doubt the killer is trying to send a message, but what do the flowers mean? And can Eli figure out the killer’s motive, before they strike again?


My review

I have never read any of this author’s writings before, but once I started this one, I knew I should have.
I am sure I already missed out on good stories, but no more. I am going to follow her closely (in a figurative way of course. I don’t want to be a stalker lol).
From the first sentence I was hooked. There was nothing that I did not like and it really was an eye-opener once again : money and power make the world go round and those who have them can do whatever they like and get away with it.
An unputdownable thriller filled with emotions. Loved it and looking forward to read the next book in the series. 5 stars.

Thank you, Arlene Hunt, Bookouture and Netgalley for making my day with this book.


About the author

Arlene spent her childhood with ‘my nose buried in a book’.  She was a fierce debate-captain in school and her love of language was bound to lead her to writing. Alongside being an author, she writes, edits and reviews briefs for radio.

Arlene is married with one daughter and lives with a crotchety one-eyed cat named Binkley and a German Shepherd named Archer, who is not at all crotchety.
