Publisher's Summary

Four months after the explosion at the Garden, a place where young women known as the Butterflies were kept captive, FBI agents Brandon Eddison, Victor Hanoverian, and Mercedes Ramirez are still entrenched in the aftermath, helping survivors in the process of adjusting to life on the outside. With winter coming to an end, the Butterflies have longer, warmer days of healing ahead. But for the agents, the impending thaw means one gruesome thing: a chilling guarantee that somewhere in the country, another young woman will turn up dead in a church with her throat slit and her body surrounded by flowers.

Priya Sravasti's sister fell victim to the killer years ago. Now she and her mother move every few months, hoping for a new beginning. But when she ends up in the madman's crosshairs, the hunt takes on new urgency. Only with Priya's help can the killer be found - but will her desperate hope for closure compel her to put her very life on the line?

    Ex book worm with lack of time, talking books are the way forward for me. Have a penchant for horror, crime, thrillers & young adult books.

    "Not quite as compelling at the first book"

    I liked that some of the characters were slightly familiar from the Butterfly Garden but I didn't feel this had quite the same grip on me.

    I wanted to hear more from the Butterflies as it felt like they had very minor pointless parts in this book. Priya was a good character but I didn't feel engaged enough with her story.

    It was good but I had higher expectations I guess, as I was so gripped by the first book

    "good but not as good as the butterfly garden"

    the narrators do a good job (except when the guy is doing Priyas mum. he murders that accent)

    the butterfly garden was really imaginative but this was kind of just an average, pretty predictable, murder mystery.

    the author also has some really odd ideas of what you should do if you find out someone has binged on oreos. Probably avoid following this example

    "Not what I had expected"

    I really had high hopes for this book because I absolutely loved The Butterfly Garden! I was pretty disappointed to see how short it fell to the first book. Most of it was repetitive and boring. I think if the POV had been from the killer instead it would have made the whole book so much better. Will Damron did a fantastic job! His voice for the killer gave me chills! Siiri's narration on the other hand sounded robotic and stunted. There were some parts of the book that were heartbreaking, but she read them completely emotionless. I couldn't get into her sections. That made it hard to rate the performance. I would easily give Will Damron 5 stars, but I would give Siiri 1 star.

    "Boring"

    Words can't describe how disappointing this book is. The butterfly garden was amazing. This one not at all.

    "Very predictable story line. Was a disappointment"

    after the first book. The female narrator is distracting trying to change her voices. Disappointment.

    "The Roses of May 😴"
    If you could sum up The Roses of May in three words, what would they be?

    DISAPPOINTING, CONFUSION, REPETITIVE


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    NO


    What does Siiri Scott and Will Damron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    UNFORTUNATELY, NO AND I THINK THAT'S BECAUSE OF THE STORY NOT THEM


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    SKIP THE SEQUEL...😬


    Any additional comments?

    AS WITH ANY EXCELLENT BOOK, MOVIE, ETC. WE ALWAYS EXPECT TOO MUCH OUT OF THE SEQUEL . AT LEAST I DID! SINCE THIS IS A TRILOGY, LETS HOPE SHE TAKES HER TIME AND "KICKS A-- WITH THE THIRD. I LOVED BUTTERFLY!!!! 😬. 😀😀😀😀😀😀😀

    "Book 2 did not disappoint"

    The second book in the series was a story all its own. Wasn't sure if it would be a continuation of the Butterfly Garden. Without ruining the story, it had some of the characters from the first book and peeks at the aftermath from book 1, but it is not the central theme.

    This is a must for anyone who enjoyed the Butterfly Garden. Edison, Vick and Ramirez! In this book we get to know Edison so much more. I'm anxiously awaiting the next in the series

    "Enjoyable, a good follow up to Butterfly Garden"
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book, though I read many reviews claiming it did not live up to The Butterfly Garden, I disagree. The characters are as intense, dynamic, and strong-willed as the previous book. The situation is very different from The Butterfly Garden, but I found myself as emotionally attached to the main characters as I was with The Butterfly Garden. I feel it really was a great way to do a sequel without doing something overly similar to The Butterfly Garden.
