Where do you come from? uestions most of us have no problem answering But what happens when you can’t answer and everything you thought you knew about yourself is totally wrong? I saw The Lullaby Girls offered on NetGalley and was immediately highly intriguedI decided to increase my Mojo for acuiring it for review by reading the first Angie Pallorino book The Drowning Girls and the earlier romantic suspense books by Loreth Anne White Two takeaways from this my Mojo attempts worked and as much as I enjoyed binge reading the earlier romantic suspense White has really stepped up her game with the Angie Pallorino seriesThe Lullaby Girls directly follows The Drowning Girls You can read it without reading The Drowning Girls because White nicely catches you up but why would you want to?Angie Pallorino is a detective skating on a thin ice She has taken down a serial killer with what her superiors termed overkill and her career is in the balance Really overkill? With a serial killer? Dead is dead While Angie is on suspension she decides to pursue the Angel Cradle child case from 1986 In the first chapter Angie interviews a nurse who was there the night a toddler was shoved cut and bleeding into the cradle amidst a gunfight on the street The cradle outside a hospital emergency room was designated as a safe haven for abandoned babies White writes of the abandonment and the subseuent effect the toddler had on the hospital with such grace and sensitivity that I strongly advise having a box of Kleenex within reachPallorino has lost who she is; no longer really Angie Pallorino having been inserted into a dead baby’s life no longer a police detective no longer the tough woman visiting sex clubs for release She fights to regain an identity a career and to keep the man who loves herJames Maddock her lover and former partner is following an international sex trafficking case that came out of the investigation of a serial killer in The Drowned Girl a case that by all rights should by Angie’s case Angie fights against her resentment and her tendency toward self destructionThe story is intricate each piece slotting together until Angie’s case and Maddock’s case intersect The pace is measured; the tension slowing building to mid book to when White lets loose and you can forget the words ‘measured’ and ‘slowly’ as all hell breaks outMaddock continues to comfort us with his Herculean efforts to maintain his relationship with Angie while staying true to the reuirements of his careerAngie continues to worry to impress and to make us want to shake her and most of all to care about herThis is an outstanding series White’s details descriptions and dialogue come together to paint a dark twisted world that resides just under the surface of our worldToday with great sadness I will say Tom Petty wrote a song about Angie Pallorino “I Won’t Back Down”This is who she is and I imagine who she will stay in subseuent booksThank you to NetGally for an ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review

Detective Angie Pallorino took down a serial killer permanently and according to her superiors with excessive force Benched on a desk assignment for twelve months Angie struggles to maintain her sense of identity if she’s not a detective who is she? Then a decades old cold case washes ashore pulling her into an investigation she rec 45 starsLet me just say Loreth Anne White’s level of storytelling is phenomenal I don’t know how she does it but each and every time I finish one of her books I find myself in awe of her writing prowess Not only does she put her skills to use here with a complex and intricate investigation—it’s plain to see she's done a ton of research—but she also manages to inject just the right amount of romance The suspense and the love story counterbalance each other perfectly If you haven’t read The Drowned Girls yet—which is a must by the way—you should probably stop here I wouldn't want to spoil anythingDetective Angie Pallorino's second go round picks up about two weeks post Baptist shooting She’s been relieved of her duties pending an investigation into her rage induced misconduct As she anxiously awaits her fate—potentially losing her identity that's wrapped up in solving cases for the special victims crime unit or even worse facing criminal charges—she delves into who she is and why she was abandoned in a hospital cradle at the age of four Recently in times of stress she’s been haunted by flashbacks of a little girl in a pink dress and a mysterious woman singing a lullaby; but what does it all mean? Now is her best chance to find out The yang to Angie’s impulsive and often reckless yin is James Maddocks—the man that made me swoon as he toted around his 3 legged sidekick Jack O What I adored most though was his self awareness and caring nature The very fact that he could table his propensity to be the rescuer for the sake of Angie's demanding need to take charge and handle things herself said so much about his character Maddocks’ patience and unwavering support was everything If you can't tell I'm completely smitten with the manThe various storylines intersect in an interesting way—the level of detail Loreth Anne White pulls off is nothing short of remarkable There was a part of me that hoped Angie would be rational and do the safe thing for once—like avoid letting the resentment surrounding Maddocks' involvement in the Baptist follow up from creeping in or not putting herself in a compromising position with her personal investigation—but come on it’s Angie we’re talking about here She’s smart and driven but she can be a little reckless and rash Good thing Maddocks has a knack for being there when she needs him most “Be there for me okay? I’m here for you” Woo hoo Let the countdown begin for book 3 Not only am I dying to see where Maddocks and Angie end up but I know there’s to yous Holgersen wink I’ve gotta say that baby sling you wore for Jack O has me convinced yous is one of the good ones despite being hella secretive “Keep thinking about it” suee A HUGE thank you to Montlake Romance and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for an honest review
