If you have yet to experience a Loreth Anne White novel I’m here to tell you you’re missing out She’s proven time and again to this reader she’s not an author that skimps on the details In fact it’s pretty apparent especially with this storyline she put a ton of research and thought into the psyche of her characters the inner workings of the investigation and the underlying religious aspects; while still managing to strike a nice balance between the suspense and romance The one caveat I feel I should mention—this isn’t one I would recommend for the timid ueasy or faint hearted The sex violence gore and depravity is graphic and often grotesue—to the point it gets under your skin and may start to chip away at your sunny outlook You’ll be living and breathing every dark aspect of this complex investigation A sex crimes investigator for the last six years Angie Pallorino is looking to get out To make a move to the homicide unit and leave behind the sordid things she's witnessed and the recent loss of her partner She’s pretty much a badass—fierce fearless and smart—but that’s not to say she doesn’t have a boatload of issues I’m convinced at this point there aren’t many detectives that don’t harbor some type of addiction at least in the fictional world of policing and Angie is no exception Her drug of choice—anonymous sex The situation in which she meets her temporary partner James Maddocks had to be my favorite part of the entire story I've mentioned I’m a total romance junkie right; talk about an unexpected twist of fate On second thought maybe it was the phone call the next morning or the nickname she came up with for him after failing to learn his name that got to me For some reason that nickname made me laugh every time it popped up in her head and even though she chose to keep it to herself I'm convinced Maddocks would have appreciated it Maddocks and Angie are partnered up on a joint task force to take down a serial killer One they believe has escalated from rape to female circumcision and murder There are a host of issues at play here—the fact that Maddocks has been asked to report back on Angie's conduct the hallucinations and flashbacks that render Angie helpless at the most inopportune times and underscoring it all the unwavering chemistry between the two detectivesWhile the meat of this gritty story is the suspense surrounding the case there’s also a healthy side of romance that provides the balance There’s no denying Angie and Maddocks have a crazy intense connection the uestion becomes— is trying to make a relationship work worth the risk Honestly lets be real for a minute though who could resist falling for Maddocks—a gorgeous and genuinely nice guy that happens to be a fixer of sorts rescuer of Jack O and then there’s that nickname again; can’t forget about thatThe setup of the story grabbed me held on for dear life and pretty much demanded I do nothing else but solve this case right alongside Maddocks and Angie They weren’t the only interesting characters in this bunch though Kjel Holgerson Angie’s replacement partner in sex crimes always seemed to have something up his sleeve and hopefully we find out just what it is in The Lullaby Girl along with the answers to all of the other nagging uestion I have Thank you to Montlake Romance and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for an honest review
