It's all come down to this...
Daisy Little has lived in agoraphobic terror for over eight years. Trapped within a prison of her own making, she watches time pass through her bedroom window. Daisy knows she'll never be a part of the world...until the day she becomes the sole witness of a terrible crime that may finally tear the Search and Rescue brotherhood apart for good.
Daisy is an agoraphobic who since seeing her mum shot just can't leave her home. Luckily she has a firm friend in Chris, the deputy that was the first to arrive on that tragic day. As time has passed though things have changed and now Daisy wants Chris to see her as more than just a friend. However, her inability to go outside and just live a normal life keeps getting in her way. Oh, she doesn't feel sorry for herself but it's fun watching the neighbours and all their antics. Daisy wishes the empty house across the street would sell so she'd have even more on the doorstep entertainment! Be careful what you wish for though as Daisy sees what looks like a dead body being sneaked out the empty house and the mystery man puts it in what looks like a squad car!
I've really enjoyed the Search and Rescue series with its colourful characters and a mystery that just kept growing. This book featured all the couples we've previously loved as the ever effervescent Lou gets called by Chris to try and make sense of what Daisy thinks she saw. What follows is an introduction for Daisy to a life she had only dreamed of and friendships are formed along with theories that no one had considered before.
Now what's really clever is the way Ms Ruggle develops each character and has shown their personalities and quirks along the way. In this book it's a claustrophobic atmosphere as we suffer alongside Daisy but there's still time to remind us just why each book has been so addictive. These characters are interesting to read about and the macho posturing in this instalment was just so much fun! I get that the ladies playing some kind of super sleuth might seem odd to some, but trust me this is a well written and imaginative series. Now if only I could pry George away from Ellie, but alas no as these romances whilst slow burning feel real and Ms Ruggle I salute you for such an entertaining series.
I was gifted a copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
