In Bloom – C J Skuse

Stars: ****

This is a follow up of Sweetpea, with a chatty, female serial killer as the protagonist of the story.

The way the story is written differs from most other crime novels. Our main character talks to us in first person in a very blasé and colloquial way. This book felt really fresh because of this, with the second in the series full of the same dark humour.

In this book, we see her now ‘killing for two’ as she has to make some new decisions in her life. Can she keep on killing? Is it okay for her to kill, because of who she chooses to murder?

I really hope there will be another book following the life of Rhiannon, after the monumental decisions she has made at the end of this one…
