Twisted fairytale murders

One thing I have to say about Caroline Mitchell is she knows how to write a cracking prologue. Just like Love you to Death, Sleep Tight kicks off with a very chilling start to set the scene! And the story does not get to thaw out as Ruby’s investigative skills are truly tested in this twisted tale.

Once again, Ruby’s life is turned upside down both personally and professionally as she hunts an evil, sick killer – her colleagues are gunning for her childhood sweetheart Nathan. Ruby’s actions are under scrutiny and her loyalties are tested and questioned. Could this be the case that could destroy her?!

Personally I don’t have a fear of doctors (I know some do) and to me, The Doctor is a time travelling earth saving Gallifreyan (preferably one who wears Converse high tops and shouts Allons-y with Rose Tyler in tow, if you catch my drift). But The Doctor Caroline Mitchell has created couldn’t be further from that friendly image. He’s a scalpel wielding cold hearted killer out to terrorise the streets of London. He’s a sinister being not to be messed with. But Ruby Preston must step up to the plate and take him on. Will she catch him before the clock runs out and he completes his dastardly plan? You’ll have to read this chilling crime thriller to find out.

Needless to say, I loved this second instalment of the Ruby Preston series. I’ve read all of Caroline Mitchell’s fictional stories and I haven’t read one thing I didn’t like. I thought Love You To Death was chilling; Caroline Mitchell has exceeded herself with Sleep Tight. The use of the fairy tale re-enactments as the Grimm Brothers originally wrote them is very twisted – loved it! If you enjoyed reading Love You To Death, you are so in for a treat with this follow-up. Its so dark and twisted, it’ll grab you by the throat and not let you go until the fast paced tale is done!

A massive thank you to Bookouture for my advanced reader copy of this twisted crime thriller. When’s book 3 out?? #NoPressureCaroline
