Red Ribbons by Louise Phillips

Two girls are discovered buried in shallow graves. Both are laid out in a particular way, with their hair plaited with red ribbons tied in them. Dr Kate Pearson is a profiler who is struggling to find the balance between family and work. Together with DI O'Connor they try and predict the killer's next move.

Red Ribbons is a debut novel from an Irish writer, Louise Phillips and it is set in Dublin.  Even though I read this last year I really enjoyed this book immensely & it's a long time since I did enjoy a book as much as I did with Red Ribbons. It was a real page turner & you couldn't wait to find out what was on the following pages. I also got a chance to meet Louise Phillips at an authors evening that we had in a friends house last year, I'm also looking forward to attending her third book launch next week.

As I am from Dublin, alot of the locations that were written into the book where very poignant for me. As I was reading the book I could visualize myself standing in all of the scenes, from the Garda Station to the side of the road in the Dublin Mountains, that was the first time a book has ever taken an effect like that on me, an excellent read & I would highly recommend it. If you love the likes of Criminal Minds, CSI & Profiler you will love this book.  I can't wait to get started on The Doll's House next.

This book is available on Kindle & available from all good bookstores.

GREAT NEWS!!! You can now order the KINDLE version of LAST KISS in the U.S via Amazon with RED RIBBONS and THE DOLL'S HOUSE also been available shortly too.
