    EXCERPT: Once upon a time, there was a little girl who was scared of the dark. Which was silly, even she knew that. There was nothing in the dark to hurt you that wasn't also in the light. You just couldn't see it coming. ABOUT THIS BOOK: This FBI agent has come to expect almos...

    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 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...

    So much did I love the first two books in this series The Butterfly Garden and The Roses of May that I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. And I thoroughly enjoyed it as well, although for a somewhat different reason. It doesn't have the emotionally charged, edge-of-your-seat th...

    I loved this final book in the trilogy! The Butterfly Garden had my attention from the first page and so I was invested in the characters already. And even though this novel deals with horrific instances of child abuse and murder, if you can stomach that you are in for a real treat of ...

    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...

    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...

    3.5 hard to read stars Can there be a harder job than having to be and FBI agent whose unit is in charge of crimes against children, especially involving sexual crimes. This must be an absolutely heart breaking task and I am pretty sure the burn out rate must be high. We wonder how ...

    The Summer Children is the final arc of Dot Hutchison's The Collector Trilogy, tying up odds and ends for police team Ramirez and Eddison (I love calling police officers by their last name, sorry Law and Order: SVU has forever changed me). The Summer Children dives more into the li...

    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...

    4 - 4.5 stars Dot Hutchinson has fully redeemed herself in the final book of the Collector Series, The Summer Children. I was fully captivated by The Butterfly Garden (review can be here: www.goodreads.com/review/show/1650757015) and I couldn?t get enough. So when Roses of May cam...

    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...

    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...

    So much did I love the first two books in this series The Butterfly Garden and The Roses of May that I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. And I thoroughly enjoyed it as well, although for a somewhat different reason. It doesn't have the emotionally charged, edge-of-your-seat th...

    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...

    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...

    Honestly I'm sad that this is over. The best FBI agents, the gut wrenching suspense, the horrors the laughs and the tears (yes I cried) all come down to Agent Ramirez I knew I shouldn't rush threw this one that my favorite trio would be coming to an end but I couldn't do it I had to se...

    Wow, I did not expect The Summer Children to be such a fabulous conclusion to The Collector Series trilogy! Dot Hutchison is an extremely talented author and she does a phenomenal job writing chilling, horror-filled thrillers that leave you on the edge of your seat. This book was most ...

    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...

    4 stars! ?Those who turn to violence don't usually have solutions to offer. Or they tried, and lost, and think this is their only way forward.? The Summer Children is the third (and final) book in the Collector trilogy. The three books even though they are part of a trilogy...

    Honestly I'm sad that this is over. The best FBI agents, the gut wrenching suspense, the horrors the laughs and the tears (yes I cried) all come down to Agent Ramirez I knew I shouldn't rush threw this one that my favorite trio would be coming to an end but I couldn't do it I had to se...

    Wow, I did not expect The Summer Children to be such a fabulous conclusion to The Collector Series trilogy! Dot Hutchison is an extremely talented author and she does a phenomenal job writing chilling, horror-filled thrillers that leave you on the edge of your seat. This book was most ...

    I have received a netgalley arc (in return for an honest review) of every book in the Collector Series by Dot Hutchison and each one was brilliant, captivating and beautiful. Each one disturbing, funny, uncomfortable and passionate. The Summer Children was no different. I laughe...

    4.5 stars. A seriously great read. I read the three books in this series in order and I recommend that though I don't think it's strictly necessary. If you want to jump right in with this book, you'll be just fine. In some ways, I think this is the best book of the trilogy, but the ...
