This is the second book in the Nightgale series and in some ways I enjoyed it even more than the first. By the second book we already know the characters and their pasts, secrets, fears, family situations etc so this book could carry on at full speed.
We don't hear as much
from Helen this time, instead her spot is "replaced" (although she is
still there) with Night Nurse Violet Tanner; a woman with a secret past
ready to catch her out and catapult her and her son into danger.
with book one, book two's story is gripping and moves quickly. The way
the chapters switch POV with each main character really works here and
kept me interested, much like a TV series keeps you loading the next
episode even after your eyes are bugged out. You just have to know what happens next.
I'm looking forward to book three: "The Nightingale Nurses".
*I received an ebook from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion
SEX: There are some racy scenes and off screen sex. SPOILER: [
One character seduces another in her effort to "keep him". She
undresses in front of him and then the scene fades to black. Another
character has premarital sex and another character nearly dies from a
botched back street abortion ]
VIOLENCE: Domestic abuse (the violence is not shown to reader but the results are)
PROFANITY: B, D, H, J
MY RATING: PG-13
