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?

I don't see why this couldn't have been a stand alone and not part of a 'series' with The Butterfly Garden. Yes, the FBI agents are part of the story and you do get some input of what happened after the first book. However, it felt like it was in the background, a side story. For me, that almost ruins The Butterfly Garden and I loved that story. I had a few more issues with this one. Why are so many creepy men stalking/bothering 16 year old Priya? Why are multiple cops jerks to her and feel like they can openly comment about her dead sister? It just didn't seem realistic. I mean, come on, a cop is going to tell Priya that she is just as beautiful as her sister was? She's 16 and he knows her sister was brutally murdered! The other huge thing that made me want to stop reading is a spoiler... Overall, I didn't like this one as much as The Butterfly Garden. I enjoyed it more in the beginning. The characters are great. The story just fell apart towards the end and main character suffered from 'smart person does really stupid thing' syndrome.

All of Dot's books are just fantastic! I love this one and can't wait to listen to "Into the Water."

Disappointing follow up to The Butterfly Garden. Follows the least likable detective from the first book and a new female narrator. Very slow plot and anti-climactic ending. Hopefully the third book will be more exciting.
