My Review of What Milo Saw by Virginia MacGregor

Welcome to my Review of the incredible What Milo Saw by Virginia MacGregor

What They Say:

A BIG story about a small boy who sees the world a little differently
Milo curled his thumb and forefinger together to make a small hole and held his fingers up to Al's eyes. 'Look through here. That's what I see. Kind of, only worse.'
'Wow, that must be amazing.'
Milo shrugged. 'Not really.'
'I mean, it makes you focus, doesn't it? I bet you see all kinds of stuff that other people miss.'

What I Say:

I really wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book. I had heard nothing but praise for it but just really had no idea...

Milo is an incredible little boy. He's 9 years old and he sees things differently to us. This makes him just completely astonishing to me! He's so clever! He's intuitive, gutsy, kind, caring, honest and sensitive. He cares so much for his Gran (and his little pet pig Hamlet) that he's willing to lose everything to take care of her.

When things start to fall apart for the Moon family, Milo knows he has to make it right. But, bless him, he doesn't quite go about it the right way. He gets a helping hand and meets some great friends along the way. Trippi and Clouds are awesome people and I love how they interact with little Milo.

I didn't expect tears when I began reading this but I can assure you, there were tears! Such a heartfelt, warm, funny, sweet and tender book! I have been (and will continue to) recommending this to anyone who will listen! A huge 10/10

What Milo Saw is out now in Paperback.

Thanks to Netgalley for giving me and e-copy in exchange for my honest review.

Blog Tour Stop with Review - The Silent Children by Carol Wyer

What They Say:
The boy studied the bruise turning yellow at the base of his neck. With quick fingers his mother tightened his tie, and pulled his collar high above it. Her eyes alone said, We will not speak of this...

Years later, a man is found shot dead in a local park. On his phone is a draft text: I can’t keep this secret any longer. The recipient is unnamed.

Detective Robyn Carter knows this secret is the key to the case, but his friends and family don’t offer any clues, and all her team have to go on is a size-ten footprint. 

Then a nurse is found in a pool of blood at the bottom of her staircase, and a seemingly insignificant detail in her friend’s statement makes Robyn wonder: are the two bodies connected, and has the killer only just begun?

When another body confirms Robyn’s worst fears, she realises she’s in a race against time to stop the killer before they strike again. But just as she thinks she’s closing in, …

Blog Tour Stop with Review - The Missing Girls by Carol Wyer

Welcome to my stop on the Blog blitz for the fabulous third Instalment in the DI Robyn Carter series!

What They Say:

One girl found dead. Another girl gone... Long shadows danced on the tin walls. Inside the trunk lay Carrie Miller, wrapped in plastic, arms folded across her ribcage, lips sealed tight forever... When a girl’s body is found at a Midlands storage unit, it is too decomposed for Detective Robyn Carter to read the signs left by the killer. No one knows the woman in blue who rented the unit; her hire van can’t be traced. But as the leads run dry another body is uncovered. This time the killer’s distinctive mark is plain to see, and matching scratches on the first victim’s skeleton make Robyn suspect she’s searching for a serial-killer.  As Robyn closes in on the killer’s shocking hunting ground, another girl goes missing, and this time it’s someone close to her own heart.  Robyn can’t lose another loved one. Can she find the sickest individual she has ever faced, before it’…
