    Well now, The Summer Children was a really happy surprise for me! I'm one of those huge fans of The Butterfly Garden who felt a bit let down by Roses of May, so I went into this book hoping for the best but with tempered expectations. I don't know if that tempering helped me have the r...

    This series remains one of my favourites, but The Summer Children now holds the title as my favourite entry. As before, we're following our team of agents - now including Sterling from Roses of May, yay! - and this time the focus is on Mercedes. Unlike the last books, we don't spend...

    This story once again returns us to Brandon Eddison, Victor Hanoverian, and Mercedes Ramirez. We also hear from our butterflies, Inara and Bliss. Priya Sravasti is still in contact and our favorite agent from Priya's case, Eliza Sterling, has moved over to Virginia to join our team too...

    Well. All I have to say about Dot Hutchison's Collector series is: nothing gold can stay. Dark, twisted, and gripping, I thought The Butterfly Garden was altogether pretty brilliant. But Hutchison's followup novel, Roses of May, provided a starling (and in my opinion, utterly grati...

    Dot Hutchison is an absolute auto buy auto read author for me. Her writing is addicting. It flows so well. It?s like candy, you just keep going and going until there?s nothing left to consume. I read all of this in the span of 5 hours and I haven?t done that in ages. Here?s...

    5 Stars ARC provided by Thomas & Mercer via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Dot Hutchison has done it again! I was enthralled from the first page of The Summer Childrenand could not put this book down! I read it in a day. The characters are vivid and compelling....

    I've been eagerly waiting for this - the third in The Collector series - to show up on Netgalley, and I read it within 24 hours of its appearance. My thoughts here are written immediately after finishing, and I will probably return to add to this review later. This one didn't grab me a...

    Reviews take into consideration the characters, plot, and the skill that both are told. Dot Hutchison excels with the development of in depth character personalities and fast moving story. I did read "The Butterfly Garden" the first in this Collector series. It was a telling that stays...

    Full review soon to come. For now, I can say that it was a great conclusion to an extremely well-executed trilogy. I didn't quite enjoy this book as much as the first, but I liked it better than the prequel. Since it's right in the middle of both prior books, I'm statistically speaki...

    There is a good plot in this book. While abuse is a thread running strong throughout the book, certain sections of the book have a much horrific version than the rest. Stomach turningly horrific. There is evil in this world and sometimes we choose to ignore it willfully. This is someth...

    Well now, The Summer Children was a really happy surprise for me! I'm one of those huge fans of The Butterfly Garden who felt a bit let down by Roses of May, so I went into this book hoping for the best but with tempered expectations. I don't know if that tempering helped me have the r...
