Readers are going crazy for Last Lullaby: ‘Absolutely freaking amazing. Having read The Birthday, I couldn't wait to get stuck into this … Once again Carol has pulled out all the punches and brings us yet another nail-biting read which grabbed me from the very first chapter. I simply couldn't put it down. This story has plenty of OMG moments and you keep you guessing until the end. I have to say... Boy I wasn't expecting that… The author takes us on a rollercoaster ride that will keep you up all night. I flipping love everything about it. And I love the fact that I have found myself a new series to read. I cannot recommend it enough giving it all the stars.’ Chelle’s Book Reviews, 5 stars ‘Ohhhh my you did it again Carol Wyer and wrote another brilliant book!!! Well I just love this author she is one clever writer and just makes it so damn impossible to put a book down and it makes me very grumpy when I have to!! The book has it all, thrilling plot, twists aplenty and a whole heap of interesting (some not so nice!!) characters and it’s a wonderful follow up to book 1 of the DI Natalie Ward series which I predict is going to be a sure fire hit and I just hope book 3 won’t be too long in coming. I didn't guess who did it and that for me makes it a 5 star read so what more can I say than if you want a fabulous which will keep you guessing then you have it here... I loved it.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars ‘Wow… This book has tension oozing from the pages, and suspects at every turn… Truly a superbly written book, I can't wait to read more of this series …Carol Wyer is one of those authors now for me, that I feel there is just no need to read the blurb about the book, if it has her name on the cover, then I want to read it. Amazing characters, some you'll love, some you'll hate. But certainly a book you can dive right into and won't want to put it down until you have finished. Praise for Carol Wyer. I can't wait for the next one.’ ILoveReadinguk, 5 stars ‘The twists and turns swing your mind all over the place and I was almost tripping over myself in order to get to the end. I don't think I realised quite how much I had been holding my breath, good thing I remembered to breathe or there would have been another death for Natalie to deal with! As we got to the end and all became revealed I was satisfied with how it panned out. Just as I was getting used to that feeling of loss and preparing myself to say goodbye to the characters and I was slowly reading the last bits savouring the ending thinking about getting myself a cup of tea to mull over all that had taken place and WHAM .... Carol how could you leave it hanging like that!!!!?? To sum it up... get Last Lullaby now, just as I think Carol can't possibly produce any more she staggers me again. With each book she is edging slowly nearer to the dark side and I love it! Definitely a contender for book of the year... it's going to be hard to beat this!’ Ali – The Dragon Slayer, 5 stars ‘Tense, fast paced and totally engrossing, this is a book that will exasperate you, thrill you, chill you and truly test your detecting skills as you strive to pinpoint whodunnit. I loved Last Lullaby. I have to say that this series is shaping up to be one heck of a killer read and I am relieved to hear that book three is well on its way as I cannot wait to read more.’ Jen Med’s Book Reviews ‘Another winner for Ms. Wyer!! I started Last Lullaby yesterday around noon & finished it last night. There was no way I could put it down! Last Lullaby was ripe full of excellent character development, lots of twists and turns and a shocking conclusion …I very much look forward to continuing this series.’ Fish Ducky Blog, 5 stars. ‘Wow wow wow!!! What a book!...I got pulled into the story right from page one. The story of Charlotte Brannon being brutally murdered whilst her baby son was in the next room was particularly chilling and started the story off with a bang! I was literally on the edge of my seat by the end of the first few chapters and found myself transfixed at the pace that it moved at …It was a fast paced book with so many twists and turns it made me dizzy! I honestly found myself holding my breath at the end of every chapter! The ending was superb and I really don’t think I will be able to contain myself until Book 3!! Absolutely bloody brilliant……that is all I can say! More please!!’ Stardust Book Reviews ‘Last Lullaby was ripe full of excellent character development, lots of twists and turns and a shocking conclusion. It is the second book in the Natalie Ward series. The first book was The Birthday, which was a fabulous read. I daresay that this story is just as good, if not better. Although it does well as a stand-alone, I encourage readers to grab both of these stories, and everything else that Carol Wyer has penned. She is extremely talented and writes compelling stories. I very much look forward to continuing this series.’ Robin Loves Reading ‘I am a big Carol Wyer fan, and this book was awesome… Suspenseful and very well written. I loved everything about it, I can’t wait for book 3!!!’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars ‘Wow. This book was a real eye-opener. The character Natalie is one of the most comprehensive and well-designed characters that I have seen. It will come as no surprise I am a big fan of this author’s work. She writes with such passion and her characters always seem so real. Her story was wonderful.’Seans Book Reviews
