I am not sure how to explain how I feel about this book. I loved the butterfly garden and I read it in one sitting just like I did this one. Initially, I didn't get into the book as quickly as I did the first book. I find it easier to get into books when they are told in the...what I think is called the first person narrative. This book alternates more than the first one did. However, the story is good. It actually is quite thought provoking. It brings up many interesting points: how the media often persecutes and harasses victims of crimes, how the delays in the justice system can delay healing, and the difficulties faced in people trying to start a new life after a tragedy (both for victims and the families of the victims). I thought it was a different story yet a masterful next installments all in one.

I loved that the author added the story of Priya and the way it wraps everything up yet leaves room for more.

I have been extremely excited for this book and have waited patiently for its release. Even though it took me almost a year to read it after its release. I thoroughly loved the first book and enjoyed the second book. This book is no different. I love how this book takes place in someone else’s point of view. This book takes place in Mercedes Ramirez’s point of view as she encounters a series of crimes that hit too close to home. I felt like this book detailed the crimes differently from the last two books. The scenes that describe the horrors that some of these children faced without outright stating it felt more impactful and gut wrenching than I remember. The details are mostly focused on two separate victims, slowly piecing things together until you cry out in despair. I loved how they pointed out the small ways that hint at the type of abuse a child has faced. It pulled me in and made me feel as if I was there investigating with them. I also loved how we see the effect these cases have on Mercedes, as well as how it relates to her past. It made me feel as though I understand her a bit better after this book. I know this shorter than most the reviews I put together but I am not sure if anything really needs to be said. I enjoyed the story and once again enjoyed the writing style and will continue to read anything new from this author even if it is not linked to this series.… (més)

The Butterfly Garden tells the horrific tale of the Gardener and his kidnap victims. He collects butterflies, but not just any kind of butterfly; they must be young, beautiful and female.Bizarre is the best way to put this story I felt like i was reading a script for a fantastic episode of criminal minds. Maya's retelling of her time in captivity is descriptive and horrifying but it is so well written you have to keep reading .

Holy...cow. This story is INTENSE. the writing was amazing. The characters are unique and you can get attached to the women of the story. But man, is it a gut punch. Recommend, but not for the light hearted.
