One of a kind...
22 March 2018
I am a huge fan of the Lottie Parker series by Patricia Gibney and ‘No Safe Place’ didn’t disappoint. This instalment is a little different from the other books in the series as the case plays a larger role than it has in past. So actually if you haven’t read previous books it Won’t matter!
Yes technically this is Book four in the series and it begins with a young woman’s body found in an open grave. Lottie is back at work after recovering from a knife wound as her boss had just gone out on medical leave she is in charge, but the powers that be don’t trust Lottie to run things in his absence and have brought in someone she can’t stand!
Lottie really is a fantastic character. I love following along with her complicated home life as she attempts to hold down her job and her trio of teenagers. I like that she’s a strong character, she isn’t perfect and she doesn’t miraculously solve every case easily and move on. She lives each of them and you get a true sense of just what solving crime means to her. Her relationship with Boyd has always been intriguing and tottered on the edge of will they won’t they and that is explored further here.
Overall, ‘No Safe Place’ is another great addition to the Lottie Parker series. I especially loved learning more about Boyd. The ending leaves room for some interesting possibilities... I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Lottie... she’s one of a kind!
