She looked like she’d drifted off to sleep, curled up in her white dress, blonde hair floating in the breeze. They called it the Angel Murder.
Eighteen-year-old Angelica Brock is found dead at a local beauty spot, dressed in a pure white nightgown, her white-blonde hair arranged around her. For years her death is a mystery, her killer the one who got away for a whole generation of police.
For DS Gaby Darin, it’s not just any cold case – the victim is intimately linked to someone close to her, and emotions are high. But just as the team finds a breakthrough clue on Angelica’s nightdress, another case crashes into the station. Could they be linked? After all this time, can Gaby finally discover what really happened to Angelica?
This gripping and emotional thriller will have you flying through the pages and on the edge of your seat. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, LJ Ross and D. S. Butler.
I love this series and Fallen Angel, the third instalment, is another fantastic addition to it. I will also say that it is my favourite one to date and is another one that had me in its clutches from start to finish! I love it when an author does this to a reader and Jenny O’Brien has certainly perfected this.
Jenny O’Brien has created another thrilling and intriguing tale that has been masterfully plotted and executed. Fraught with so much tension and suspense with twists and turns aplenty to keep you on your toes, Fallen Angel really is a heart pounding and gripping read that will just consume you.
With each book, Gaby keeps getting better and better. I really enjoy her character and she is the perfect lead for the series. A woman of strength, she has been beautifully created as someone you can completely resonate with. The recurring characters also add value to the series and compliment Gaby well.
Once again Jenny O’Brien had me glued to the pages with her prose, which is always just so engaging. She has a real gift for being able to immediately hook you into the story, making for it to be almost impossible to put down. This was most definitely the case with Fallen Angel and is one that I read in one sitting!
Fallen Angel is a compelling read and whist can be read as a standalone, I do encourage you to read the other two in the series first, as they are also fantastic reads. Thank you for another amazing book Jenny O’Brien and I can’t wait to see what you have in store for Gaby and co next.
Thank you to Jenny O’Brien, HQ Digital and NetGalley for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Fallen Angel, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play and Barnes & Noble if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK, but will post to Waterstones & Foyles.
Let’s Get to Know Jenny O’Brien
I took up writing about fifteen years ago when I first came up with a plot for a book, and I haven’t stopped since. When I’m not writing, I’m ferrying around 3 teenagers or working as a nurse. I’m also an all-year-round sea swimmer. I write what I love to read, which is romance and thrillers. My children’s books will hopefully be of some use, particularly Boy Brainy which is perma-free and written to raise self-esteem.
