    Nikki Hunt is back and is investigating the case of two frozen bodies found along a desolate highway in Stillwater, Minnesota. The bodies belong to Kellan Rhodes and his mother Dana. Kellen had been reported missing and his mother Dana was suspected of kidnapping him.

The bodies belong to Kellan Rhodes and his mother Dana. Kellen had been reported missing and his mother Dana was suspected of kidnapping him. At first glance, it appears as if Dana killed her son and then herself, but the wounds suggest that Dana was murdered. If Dana is not the killer, then who is responsible for their deaths? Who would want to kill a mother and her child? While investigating, Dana and Kellan's murder, Nikki receives a call from Caitlin Newport, a local journalist who believes that another missing child may be linked in some way to Nikki's investigation. Caitlin is desperate for Nikki to investigate this case as well. Oh, what a tangled web we weave! Two investigations that may or may not be linked! What is the connection? One thing is clear, finding the killer will not be easy. During the investigation, Nikki learns more about Dana, her relationship with her sister, and her attempts to win back custody of her son. Green really knows how to make you feel for the victims. This was a great follow up to The Girls in the Snow and continues Nikki's storyline from when she learned the truth about her parent's murders. It was refreshing to see the character development in this book and if you have not read the first book in this promising new series, I highly recommend it. I also appreciated how Green had Nikki balancing her job as an FBI agent while spending time with her daughter. Not only do we see Nikki and her daughter, but we also see Nikki interacting with her ex-husband, her boyfriend and her coworkers and other investigators to solve the cases. We also see her be tough as nails as an agent and be more vulnerable in her private life. This book has some twists and turns and several revelations. This book had the right amount of tension and suspense. There are many layers to this story and with two cases to solve, Nikki is exhausted yet determined. I really enjoyed how the story unfolded as we learn some truths and the big reveal. Although the reveal might not give you whiplash because it does not come out of left field, it does have shock value and gives a nice aha moment. I found this to be a captivating book with a well-executed plot. Tense, suspenseful and captivating! I look forward to the next book in this series. Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All the thoughts and opinions are my own.

Luckily she is not badly injured, but as she tries to make her way back to the road she sees two pairs of feet and a pool of blood thereby discovering two semi frozen corpses - eeek! Acting Sheriff Miller from Washington County calls FBI agent Nikki Hunt to the scene as he thinks he knows who they are and Nikki has been on the search team over the weekend. The victims are confirmed as Dana Rhodes and her son Kellan. Kellan was reported missing on the Friday night. It is now suspected that Dana grabbed him after school on Friday and, after he died either accidentally or on purpose, killed herself by slashing her wrists. Dana was a recovering meth addict who had lost custody of her son three years ago to her much older sister Maggie and husband Joe Anderson. But Dana had been clean for a year, passing all her drug tests until the last one just before the latest custody hearing. She wanted her son back but Maggie was against it. Failing the drug test was an automatic disqualification for Dana. However, things are never as they seem and the autopsies showed that Dana was actually murdered and that Kellan had died on the Friday - two days before his mother. Nikki learns that Dana swore adamantly that she was still clean and that her sister had somehow arranged for the drug test to fail. Who believes a drug addict anyway? But Nikki is hearing disturbing things about the relationship between the two sisters, Maggie and Dana. How bad could it be? Meanwhile a reporter that has been bugging Nikki for an interview relating to a previous case, Caitlin Newport, asks Nikki to investigate the disappearance of another boy, 12 year old Zach, from a neighbouring county. There is absolutely no evidence of foul play but Caitlin persists. It turns out she is known to the boy and later she produces credible evidence that the two cases might be linked. Well we know that Nikki Hunt is a relentless investigator and that she leaves no stone unturned. What eventually crawls out from under those stones is very disturbing indeed. Jealousy and toxic hatred drive this rather sad story. Keep your children close! My thanks to Netgalley, Bookouture and Stacy Green for providing a copy for review. My opinions are my own.

    When the two bodies were discovered in the snow and ice, one with arms wrapped around the other, Special Agent Nikki Hunt was shocked and saddened.

Now in the arms of his mother, Dana, Nikki wondered if it was a murder suicide. But evidence would prove the two were murdered. Dana had been getting her life on track to regain custody of her son. Nikki wondered what had gone wrong – but she was determined to find out. The same day Kellan disappeared, another young boy vanished – did the disappearance of Zach Reeves have anything to do with Kellan? As Nikki’s team and other teams across the county set the logistics in motion, the investigation was anything but simple. The deeper they dug, the more horrors they uncovered. Who killed Kellan and his mother? And was Zach still alive? One Perfect Grave is the 2nd in the Nikki Hunt series by Stacy Green and it was riveting! Fast paced, clues, tips, twists – my suspicions changed back and forth. Nikki is a strong character whose past has a lot of bearing on who she is today – her determination to find answers no matter the cost stems from that. I’m already looking forward to #3 in the series – bring it on! Highly recommended. With thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my digital ARC to read in exchange for an honest review.

The books in the Nikki Hunt Series include: The Girls in The Snow (Book 1) One Perfect Grave (Book 2) This second instalment takes place a few weeks after the end of the first book. While this book can be read as a standalone, as the author does a great job in supplying background information, I would recommend you read the series in order to get a better appreciation of the growth of the characters. It is such a great series, so sit back and enjoy! FBI Special Agent and criminal profiler Nikki Hunt has been chosen to head up a new Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) that deals with crimes in the jurisdictions of Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. When a car skids off the road the driver discovers two dead bodies of a woman and child. The remains of two bodies are found in an open grave along a desolate highway in Stillwater, Minnesota, Special Agent Nikki Hunt knows exactly who they are. The bright blue jacket lying on the frozen earth belongs to Kellan Rhodes, the missing boy she’s desperately been trying to find for the last two days. The other body is his mother Dana, who had been Nikki’s lead suspect. An amber alert had announced that Kellan had been abducted by his biological mother, Dana Rhodes, who had lost custody of Kellan, three years ago because of drug use. Six-year-old Kellan had gone to live with his aunt and uncle, Maggie and Joe Anderson, who fought to adopt him. The wounds on Dana’s body suggest she murdered her son and took her own life, but Nikki finds evidence that suggests she was a victim too…boot prints at the scene that belong to someone else. Caitlin Newport, a local reporter, comes to Nikki to tell her about another twelve-year-old child that is reported missing, and claims the cases are linked: Zach Reeves was taken away from his own mother in a custody battle, just like Kellan was. But can Nikki trust Caitlin? One Perfect Grave is a fast-paced crime thriller with a strong protagonist and engaging characters. Lots of twists and turns with a shocking conclusion. Great series that will appeal to a wide audience. Highly recommended. Many thanks to the author, Bookouture and NetGalley, for my digital copy.

    One Perfect Grave is the second book in the police procedural series featuring Agent Nikki Hunt. Set in Stillwater, Minnesota, FBI Profiler/ Special Agent Nikki makes a very likeable agent. Nikki came back to Stillwater after twenty years of working away, and I first met her in book one, The Girls in the Snow.

Nikki came back to Stillwater after twenty years of working away, and I first met her in book one, The Girls in the Snow. In this instalment, Michelle is driving home one wintry, freezing night after spending the evening with her boyfriend when her car hits a patch of black ice and she spins off the road. As her vehicle nosedives into a snowdrift in a deep gully, she spots a young boy, partially frozen in the ice, and dials emergency services. Nikki has been given the case of missing youngster Kellan Rhodes. She is woken very early by deputy Ron Reynolds. Acting Sheriff Miller from Washington County is calling her to the crime scene to investigate as it's in an area she knows well and he believes she may know the identity of the victim. When she arrives there are two bodies, confirmed as Kellan and his mother, Dana. Nikki, her new boyfriend, Ryan and many of the townspeople have been searching for them for two days. Then another child is reported missing and Nikki feels that the cases are connected. This compelling and engaging story hotted up with alacrity. The characters were very well portrayed and protagonist Nikki has been created and developed wonderfully. Nikki is resourceful, intelligent and complex and there is a lot going on in her personal life. One Perfect Grave was an extremely compulsive read with plenty of action, mystery, crazy plot twists, and a family and community that were not as they appeared. Stacy Green's writing was a good fit for me and I believe she excels when it comes to character development. I was glued to the pages and I didn't want to put this book down as I was desperate to know the outcome of the story. As the tension snowballed in this edge-of-your-seat read, the story bounded towards the resolution, the suspense culminating in a surprising finale. Going forward, I’m very keen to read more in this exciting series. A very highly recommended crime-thriller. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

One of the victims was a young boy, and the other victim is his mother. Nikki has her suspicions, but she finds some evidence that dispels her original theory. Then another child is reported missing.

This time she is trying to discover why two bodies were found frozen in an open grave. One of the victims was a young boy, and the other victim is his mother. Nikki has her suspicions, but she finds some evidence that dispels her original theory. Then another child is reported missing. Nikki most definitely feels the cases are connected. When a reporter contacts Nikki and begs her to look deeper into the murders and to the disappearance of the other child, the pressure is immense. Child custody seems to be a factor as to both cases. As the mother of a young child, a child who spends quite a bit of time with Nikki's ex due to the level of Nikki's work, makes this even more sensitive to her. Meanwhile, Nikki is drawing closer to her new boyfriend, all while worrying about how his family would feel about their relationship. Because I had just read the first book in the series, The Girls in the Snow, just prior to reading this book, I had started to get to know Nikki. I love her personality, her work ethic, and how she feels about her daughter. I also love watching her develop a relationship, despite the challenges that would entail. Even so, this book, One Perfect Grave, could do well as a standalone. Stacy Green is an excellent writer, and excels when it comes to character development. In addition to that, the cases, although quite sensitive in nature, are handled well, and the story has enough twists and turns that kept me turning pages late into the night. In fact, I could not stop reading this book until I finished it, pretty much in one sitting. The story has excellent pacing and led to an exciting conclusion. I can't wait to see how Nikki handles her next case, as well as to where her relationship goes. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.

Now, Nikki must decide if she can trust Caitlin again, before time runs out to find the killer and bring Zach home alive… I loved the first book in this series and so when I saw this, I knew I had to read this! The plot was so exciting and fast paced that I just couldn’t put it down. Nikki Hunt’s investigation along with all her team members is excellent and meticulous. The perpetrator is obviously a sick individual who targets little children, I did have doubts quite early into the book as to who it could possibly be. And I was glad to have guessed it right. Agent Nikki Hunt’s work ethic, camaraderie with her colleagues as well as her ability to keep her emotions at check are some of the amazing qualities which definitely makes her one of my favorite FBI agents. I can’t wait for the next book in this series! Overall, an excellent fast paced, edge of the seat thriller! Highly Recommended! Thank You NetGalley and Bookouture for this ARC!

    This story takes place a few weeks after the previous book, but if you missed that, this is a good point to step in. The main facts of that book are shortly explained, which was good for me as well as it’s a while since I read that. When a young woman skids off the bridge on a patch of black ice, she discovers the bodies of Dana Rhodes and her 10-year-old son, Kellan. He disappeared from his uncle’s house 2 days earlier and it was assumed that his birth mother had taken him. Nobody could imagine This story takes place a few weeks after the previous book, but if you missed that, this is a good point to step in. The main facts of that book are shortly explained, which was good for me as well as it’s a while since I read that. When a young woman skids off the bridge on a patch of black ice, she discovers the bodies of Dana Rhodes and her 10-year-old son, Kellan. He disappeared from his uncle’s house 2 days earlier and it was assumed that his birth mother had taken him. Nobody could imagine that she would harm him though. It appears that the boy is dead for a couple of days but his mother’s death is more recent? Her wrists are slashed in a manner she could not have done self. Special Agent Nikki Hunt, who’s staying in town with her boyfriend, is asked to help with the case. The same day that Kellan disappeared, another boy that was also involved in a custody case did vanish from the neighbouring county. The local sheriff is imminent that he must have gone through the ice and drowned but a local journalist and the boy’s grandparents beg Nikki to help them. It’s a bit odd, but I read this book and ‘The Winter Girls’ in the same week. Both books are similar in their setting and characters, even the names Hunt and Hunter are almost identical. Both are female FBI agents who’re involved with a local man. But luckily that’s where the coincidences stop. The stories are completely different. Anyway, it was a perfect read for a snowy, cold week. Similar to the first book in the series, there are 2 different investigations that may well or not be connected. Nikki feels still guilty about her early testimony that put Rory’s brother in jail for a very long time, even though she got him out as well by discovering the real killer. Mark and his brother forgave her but there are still a lot of people that hold it against her. Nikki is trying to juggle her daughter, her ex-husband, and her new relationship but is a bit wary about informing her daughter Lacey and her ex. She’s also still insecure about her own and Rory’s feelings. It’s a delicate balance when both men are worried when she gives too much time or attention to the other; Dana’s story is really tragic and sad. I felt really sorry for her. She worked so hard to get off the drugs and be a good mother and then her own sister fights that in court to keep custody of Kellan. So, she’s a good suspect for Dana’s death but surely she would not kill the boy? This is a story of unconditional motherly love and perseverance. Where this love is a beautiful, positive sentiment, it can also lead to wrong and dangerous choices with unforeseeable consequences. This love is not only visible in the parents of the missing children but also in Nikki’s own life. I thank Netgalley and Bookouture for their free ARC and this is my honest, unbiased review of it.

It's a treacherous Sunday evening on the roads around Stillwater and Michelle is driving home from spending time with her boyfriend. The ice is coming down in sheets leaving black ice everywhere and making it a tricky task to see the lane ahead clearly. She reaches Valley Creek Bridge and passes it with ease. Only a couple miles now from home she unwittingly accelerates against a spot of black ice and ends up careening dangerously off the road before landing in a deep gully. She calls 911 and the dispatcher informs her they are sending both a sheriff's deputy and paramedics to her spot on old Stagecoach Road, but before she can finish the call Michelle passes out after discovering two dead bodies sitting in a lake of blood at the bottom of the old bridge. One a young boy, partially frozen in the ice. It isn't long before Acting Sheriff Miller from Washington County calls Nikki in to the crime scene to investigate as it's a neck of the woods she knows well and he believes he already knows the identities of the victims. They are soon confirmed as nine-year-old Kellan Rhodes and his mother, Dana, who Nikki, her new beau, Ryan, and many of the townspeople had been scouring the local area for over the weekend. Kellan was reported missing on Friday evening and because Dana, a recovering methamphetamine addict, had lost custody of him three years ago it is suspected that she effectively took him at the end of school. It is speculated that he could've died as the result of an accident or at his own mother’s hand before she slashed her wrists. Dana's older sister, Maggie, and her husband were eventually given custody of Kellan embroiling the whole family in a hostile and deeply strained relationship. But when another custody embittered child vanishes from a neighbouring county, can Nikki and co get to the bottom of happened? This is a compulsive and captivating read with plenty of action, mystery, crazy plot twists and a family and community that is not what it seems. The fact that it involved mass toxicity, betrayal and animosity was sad to see and it is clear the impact custody battles have on the parents, the child and the wider family unit. I enjoyed learning more about Nikki who is a complex personality with plenty going on in her personal life to keep you engaged. The way the multilayered plot unravels and the two crimes become intertwined is well thought out and kept me riveted throughout. It's a propulsive and absorbing addition to a gritty series that is swiftly becoming unmissable. Highly recommended.

    One Perfect Grave by Stacy Green is the second in the FBI Agent Nikki Hunt series. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Bookouture, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Bookouture, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.   Series Background:   (Warning – May contain spoilers from previous books) Nikki Hunt is an FBI Agent whose parents were murdered when she was young.  She helped put away Mark Todd for their murder, but 20 years later, discovered he was innocent, and fought for his release.  She is now dating Rory, Mark's younger brother.  Family dynamics are awkward.  She has a young daughter, and an ex-husband who still loves her.  Nikki heads the BAU unit based out of St. Paul Minnesota.  Her team consists of Crime Scene Analyst Courtney Hart and Agent Liam Wilson.   My Synopsis:   (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions) When the bodies of Dana Rhodes and her 9 year old son Kellan are found at the bottom of a ravine, Nikki has to re-think the case.  It was originally thought that Dana had kidnapped her son  because she couldn't get custody because  of a failed drug test.  But would she kill herself and her son?  And why, after being clean for so long, would she sabotage her chances of getting custody of Kellan?  Everyone, other than her sister, believes the drug test was wrong. When journalist Caitlin Newport tries to get Nikki to looking into another missing boy, Nikki isn't sure. Caitlin always has her own agenda, and Nikki almost lost her life when working with her in the past. As well, the Department looking after that case does not want Nikki's involvement.  But Caitlin is pushy. On  personal level, Nikki considers her relationship with Rory to be private, but her ex-husband is suspicious, and Rory wants things to progress further.  However, his family wants nothing to do with the woman who put their older son in jail for 20 years.  Nikki has her hands full.   My Opinions:    The second book in this series was just as good as the first.  I love Nikki and her team.  I'm even starting to like Caitlin.   I love the fact that Nikki drops everything when her daughter needs her. The plot was entertaining, and although I had guessed the perpetrator early on, the motive eluded me (my thoughts went to paternity).  I liked the twist with Caitlin, though I saw that one coming too.  The fact that I had guessed a number of the outcomes did not detract from the story.  The book was a fast and easy read, which kept me interested from start to finish. Oh, and I love the cover. Can't wait for the next one!

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Bookouture for an advance copy of One Perfect Grave, the second novel to feature Minnesota based FBI Agent Nikki Hunt. A car skids off the road and the driver discovers two dead bodies of a woman and child. They are quickly identified as Kellen Rhodes and his mother Dana. Nikki has been looking for Kellen for days and Dana had been her prime suspect. Initially it is suggested that it’s a murder-suicide after Dana lost custody of Kellen but Nikki’s not so sure, I would like to thank Netgalley and Bookouture for an advance copy of One Perfect Grave, the second novel to feature Minnesota based FBI Agent Nikki Hunt.

Nikki has been looking for Kellen for days and Dana had been her prime suspect. Initially it is suggested that it’s a murder-suicide after Dana lost custody of Kellen but Nikki’s not so sure, especially when another young boy goes missing. I thoroughly enjoyed One Perfect Grave which is an engrossing read with plenty going on. It gets complicated at times with so many characters having what I would call side motives. Their behaviour isn’t legal and uncovering their motives for this behaviour adds to the picture but doesn’t bring Nikki closer to identifying a perpetrator. Much of the novel is taken up by this and while it gets a little messy at times it is exciting and compulsive. It is fitting that the solution comes in a throw away remark. I like Nikki Hunt, who is a smart operator and is never afraid to get down and dirty - she is physically attacked twice in this novel. Does that make her careless or dedicated? Decide for yourself. She has a messy personal life as well with an ex-husband still carrying a torch, a child and a new boyfriend with links to her past. I would recommend reading this series in order as this novel makes many references to the events in the previous one, even explaining the outcome at one point. It would be hard to backtrack successfully. One Perfect Grave is a good read that I have no hesitation in recommending.

    “A gripping and heart-pounding crime thriller” All the other fictional detectives need to move aside a little and make space for another first class investigator to take her place amongst them. I have to say that I just couldn’t turn the pages fast enough, in my eagerness to get to the end of the book and discover who the murderer was, after I had been tripped up by enough red herrings to cause severe injury to my pride!

I have to say that I just couldn’t turn the pages fast enough, in my eagerness to get to the end of the book and discover who the murderer was, after I had been tripped up by enough red herrings to cause severe injury to my pride! This one had it all. It opened straight up into the action; the storyline never let up for one second; and the ending, whilst I didn’t get to accuse the right suspect, kept me on the edge of my seat. Oh! and just for good measure, although only by the skin of her teeth, Nikki manged not to get herself killed. She lives to fight another day – Book #3 please Stacy, anytime you’re ready! I am still in two minds about going back to read book #1, but only for the case itself, as Stacy did such a great job of filling in the backstory without making it too overpowering for any existing reader who is already following the series, that I really felt like I already knew Nikki personally and could tell what she was thinking and how she was feeling. It goes without saying that she has enough emotional baggage to more than fill the average family suitcase and she sure doesn’t like to make her private life easy for herself. However she never takes her eye off the ball when it comes to work, even if the lines become a little blurred around the edges sometimes! This compelling and multi-layered storyline is wonderfully textured, rich in atmosphere and constantly has the tension ratcheted up a notch at a time, as the well constructed and intense investigation draws to a climax. Particularly important to the team, as this investigation involves children and especially as Nikki is a mother herself, is their determination to achieve closure for the families with as much compassion, tact, diplomacy and thoughtful consideration as possible. Although this is made all the more difficult given the eventual and dramatic final turn of events, and the fact that other law enforcement teams in the area seem so hellbent on causing as much internal division and distrust as possible. When the chips are down Nikki and her small FBI criminal profiling team, manage to work alongside the local County Sheriff’s office, without any rancour or ill feeling. However, cross that County line into the next jurisdiction and you do so at your own peril, as Nikki is all too aware from previous personal experience, and some things simply never change! The gripping and often slightly disturbing, narrative and dialogue was intelligent, crisp and fluid, with not so much as a wasted word. However the whole investigation managed to retain a skilfully written, visually observational and descriptive awareness that was spot-on and detailed enough that I could almost picture myself shadowing the team as they went about their business. I would quite like to have a leader like Nikki Hunt, who handles her team well, who after asking for input and opinions from them, never then jumps in with her own personal thoughts first, in case it clouds their judgement and influences them too much, as she really values everyone’s opinions and relies on collaborative thinking and ideas to solve a case. Although she is also never afraid to override one of them if necessary, so long as she has good reason to do so, and is always ultimately willing to hold her hands up and shoulder the blame if mistakes are made on her watch. Author, Stacy Green, has done an amazing job of creating a completely diverse range of characters, who all elicited different responses from me. Some I could relate to and invest in all the way down the line, others I just loved to hate, and then there were those I could have cheerfully punched in the nose (or worse)! I guess my point is that they were all so well defined and developed, that I could get inside their heads and see what they were thinking. The synergy between them was raw and passionate, complex and emotional, powerful and vulnerable, but always genuine and believable.

    This is the second book in the Nikki Hunt series. Nikki is called to the crime scene with two victims:Kellan, a boy she was searching for the past few days, and his mother Dana.

To complicate matters, a reporter with whom Nikki has a complicated relationship, Caitlin, believes that another boy was taken on the same day as Kellan and that the two cases are somehow connected. I really enjoyed the first book in this series so I expected to at least enjoy the second one. But I ended up loving it. This was such a good book. I will say though that the mystery itself wasn't very complicated and I figured out the whodunit quite early on. But it didn't matter because I loved the journey so much. I pitied Dana so much, her life was a struggle and I just wanted to reach into the book and give her a hug. Nikki is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. She is smart and caring, but also has a cool had on her shoulders and is able to think clearly even in dire situations. The romance had some development and I want to see where it goes next. All in all I really loved this and I can't wait to get my hands on the next book. Thank you to Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

They were identified as Kellan Rhodes and his mom Dana. Kellen was earlier reported as missing and his mom Dana was prime suspected of kidnapping him. At first, it seemed like Dana killed her child and afterwards herself. However, the injuries says, story is something different here. It says, Dana was killed. If Dana isn’t the killer, who is answerable for their death? Who would want to murder a mother and her daughter? While investigating, Dana and Kellan’s murder mystery, Nikki gets a call from Caitlin Newport, a local journalist who thinks that another missing kid might be connected some way or another to Nikki’s investigation. Caitlin convinced Nikki to examine this case too. Goodness, what a tangled web we weave! Two investigations that might possibly be connected! What is the connection after all? One thing is clear, finding the killer won’t be simple. During the investigation, Nikki studies Dana, her relationship with her sister, and her efforts to win back guardianship of her child. Stacy Green truly know how to make you feel for victims. One Perfect Grave was an extraordinary development to The Girls in the Snow and proceeds with Nikki’s storyline from when she learn the reality about her parent’s killings. It was reviving to see the character improvement in this book and if you have not perused the first book in this Nikki Hunt series. I highly recommend it to you. I likewise appreciated how Stacy Green had Nikki adjusting her work as an FBI agent while spending time with her daughter. In addition to Nikki and her daughter, We likewise see Nikki cooperating with her ex-husband, her boyfriend and her colleagues and different investigators to solve the murder mystery. We likewise see her be tough as an agent and more defenceless in her private life. One Perfect Grave by Stacy Green has a few exciting twists and a few disclosures. This book had the perfect measure of suspense and tension. There are numerous layers to this story and with two cases to solve. Nikki is exhausted but still very determined. I truly delighted in how the story unfurled as we learn some truths and the large reveal. Although the reveal probably won’t give you whiplash since it doesn’t emerge from left field, it has shock value and gives a pleasant moment of surprise. I discovered this to be a captivating book with a well written story. Follow us on social media Spotify Google News Facebook Instagram Twitter

    One Perfect Grave is a suspenseful mystery that’s brilliantly developed to invest you in likeable characters and a sensitive case that’s full of potential suspects. I read the first book in the series, The Girls In The Snow, last month in anticipation for the release of this next one. But although I really liked it, I wasn’t completely invested. This second instalment definitely grabbed my full attention, though, and I’m already eager for more. You don’t need to have read the first book to enjoy t One Perfect Grave is a suspenseful mystery that’s brilliantly developed to invest you in likeable characters and a sensitive case that’s full of potential suspects. I read the first book in the series, The Girls In The Snow, last month in anticipation for the release of this next one. But although I really liked it, I wasn’t completely invested. This second instalment definitely grabbed my full attention, though, and I’m already eager for more. You don’t need to have read the first book to enjoy this one as Green does a brilliant job of summarising the events that took place. I would definitely recommend reading it still as it’s a big occasion in Nikki’s life, but you will get a good idea of what happened and what led Nikki back to her hometown. Either way, Green spends a lot of time getting you investing in the characters by allowing you get to know them both at work and at home. We get to see many sides to Nikki’s life which is what makes her so compelling, and it’s no wonder she’s becoming a character that so many people are excited to follow. But all of the supporting characters are developed just as well too. We even get to know Caitlin more in-depth this time, who wasn’t easy to get along with in the first book. But you’ll certainly see a different side to her now, and it’s these well-crafted relationships that will keep you so engaged. So far, both of these books have shocked me at the end with the revelation of the killer, with One Perfect Grave yet again taking me by complete surprise. There are many twists and turns and potential suspects to keep you guessing, as Green manages to hold off right until the very end to give anything away, bringing together two crimes in a well-paced and clever way. The underlying theme of missing and exploited children is a heartbreaking one but it’s comforting to know the lengths that some crime units go to to bring these children home. I think the killer’s life needed unravelling a little more at the end as a lot of what was said was just speculation so I wanted their actions to be laid bare, but the author’s note at the end gives it a touching conclusion. The only disappointing thing about this book is that a certain subplot from the first book isn’t picked up on. This elusive character only gets a brief mention, but I’m really hoping that the next book will give him the focus that fans of this series are no doubt craving. It’s a great ploy by Green as we’re going to keep coming back for more to see Nikki solve the case that’s been haunting her for five years now, but I would have liked for him to be mentioned again at the end–maybe a hint that we’re going to meet him sometime soon? Because I don’t imagine that he’s going to only be a background character for much longer, as our interest in him may not last another instalment if his inclusion is neglected again. So there are plenty of reasons to look forward to another Nikki Hunt book, especially since this second instalment is a vast improvement on a book that I really enjoyed already. And I have the feeling that they are only going to get better! If you’re looking for a fresh, new detective to follow or just for a captivating thriller with expert police procedural, Nikki Hunt is definitely a series that I would recommend.

TW: Pedophilia; Drug abuse; Gaslighting This is a sequel to “The Girls in the Snow”, which I haven’t read but now have every intention to! Some spoilers are included in this book, but I don’t have a problem with that. Special Agent Nikki Hunt has a troubled personal life and is working in a missing child case that comes to a sad conclusion when the child and his mother are found dead. It looks like a murder followed by suicide, but was it really? Meanwhile, another investigation gets caught in the middle, are they linked or just coincidences? Plot: ★★★★ It’s not a shocking innovative plot but classics are classics for a reason, we get a little bit of personal drama with a lot of investigation and suspicion. I definitely missed a little bit of character development and relationships by not reading the first book, but I liked to get to know Nikki Hunt and her tangled personal life. There are a few revelations and twists but it’s not a plot twist kind of ending. I found the story very well executed and with no lose ends, but maybe a little bit simple. Structure: ★★★★★ The pace is addictive, keeps you guessing a bunch of times without stalling too much. The adjacent plots are extremely well balanced. At 80% you pretty much know what happened but there are still some clarifications and great action scenes, so it doesn’t lose its pace. Characters: ★★★ Okay so maybe it’s a little unfair because I haven’t read the first of the series, but I feel like some characters were just thrown around at the story and it took me some time placing them when their names were mentioned. However, that did happen with characters that were previously featured and “new” characters; basically that was an issue for me. The main characters are well built and developed but the other roles are neglected. 4.0 ★ My expectations were high due to all the good reviews and I wasn’t let down! This works even if you haven’t read the first of the series and is a very good investigation thriller. I already can’t wait for the next book. Thank you NetGalley for this Advance Review Copy in exchange for my honest review!

    This was a great book. I feel like that needs to be said first because so many mystery books I have read lately have not held my attention like this one did. I’m not going to describe the plot, that is all laid out perfectly by the publisher. Firstly, One Perfect Grave is the second book in the Nikki Hunt series.

However, reading the first book is not a requirement to understand this one. Plot points are mentioned but there is still enough mystery that I plan on reading the first book in the series. What I really enjoyed about this book is that it really focused on the case. I enjoyed that it made reference to the previous book and relationships were developed between the two and throughout this book. These were mentioned, but not the main focus of the book. Each relationship played a part within the plot of this, or helped explain certain actions. Enough to humanize characters but not overwhelm the plot. Nearly every interaction or plot point was worth reading. In many novels you can skip a paragraph or two but I paid attention during this book because the details were important. Whether it was from a previous case, the current overlapping cases or the history, these points helped drive the plot of this book. Did I guess the culprit? Eventually. But it took me longer than most books to settle on one. Many twists, turns and possible suspects, each with a great motive and possibility. This book was fast paced but it was a perfect pace. You didn’t become lost because each revelation helps this come full circle. This was a great mystery book and I look forward to the rest of the series. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the advanced copy of the book to review. This review is my own opinion.

The mother was a known drug abuser, and did not have custody of her son. Instead, her sister, whom she hated, and her brother-in-law have raised her son. A lot of secrets are revealed, some shocking, others surprising. Cleverly written, well-plotted, and I’ve fallen in love with the quirky town and it’s people. I’m afraid though that once Stacy tells the story of every single person in this town half of them will end up in prison. I felt like it dragged on a bit too long after the beginning towards the middle, but luckily after that it really picked up and smoothly moved towards the last words. The book is both bewitching and charming, and the main characters are simply real and alluring. Stacy is an amazing author, and I can’t wait to read the third book in the series! I hope this series goes on forever.

At first glance one would assume that Dana killed her son and then took her own life but Nikki believes that is not what happened. Dana had lost custody of her son and wanted to get him back and there were also the foot prints that belonged to someone else. Who could have done this terrible thing? Now there was another child missing. Missing after his mother lost custody of him. Zach was gone and to a local journalist, Caitlin Newport, it looked as though the two cases were connected. Nikki and Caitlin have a past. One where they worked together in hopes of finding who killed Nikki’s parents. That time almost cost Nikki her life and she did not want that to happen again. The one thing she had to ask herself was, could she trust Caitlin again? Or would she lead her down the same path as before. A path that took too many wrong turns. This author has done a brilliant job at keeping this book suspenseful and keeping the reader on the edge of their seat. This is definitely one hell of a ride.... hold on.

The book has plenty of action but one thing that I kept thinking about was how the author really went through the minutiae of what it takes to solve crimes. This includes the countless interviews, follow ups, forensic data, and coordination with other law enforcement agencies. This wasn’t boring, in fact I liked this book even more than the first one. It was interesting to see how Nikki builds a case. Looking forward to more Nikki Hunt novels in the future.

    4 ⭐️ I was so excited to continue with this series after really loving the first one and it definitely did not disappoint! I loved to see all the character development, to learn more about Nikki’s personal life and getting to know her team a bit more. The mystery in this one was also great! Already looking forward to the next one (Lost Angels) which is coming out in August!

    This is a police procedural, and like in real police work, the pace isn't always very fast. But the last half actually has a very good pace and some action as well. Excellent storytelling and characters make this book very entertaining. This is a police procedural, and like in real police work, the pace isn't always very fast.
