Review: Hushabye

Hushabye Hushabye by Celina Grace
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Got this free, as the 2nd book was on an Alarm (ReaderIQ) and then I checked this was also free (as expected).
Reasonably fast read, page-turner.
Strongly recommended but not really 4 stars, not enough twists and although it is set in the UK, at times you do not feel it, except for some expressions. The case is simpler and could have been a lot darker for me, so this one is more like a 3.5 rounded up to 4. Little romance, no sex.
An author to watch for, I will certainly read more of her (and having the 2nd book I will do it now!).

Just having read Eeny Meeny before these two books, a comparison: all 3 take place in the UK, but Eeny Meeny (a debut I think) is longer, a little darker, and you get more of a feeling you are in the UK. Structure of all 3 books is quite similar, with a female MC hiding a dark past. So while all 3 books are very good, the 1 star difference towards Eeny Meeny is warranted for me. And looking at my already bought TBR-ebook-pile, want buy the next books in this and the M.J. Arlidge-series. But will try to clean up and look to DNF a few books, I began 2014 and 2015 (or this year 2016).
