4.5 stars If you enjoy mysteries and trying to figure out the answer as you read, ALL THE LOVELY CHILDREN is going to be the book you curl up with this weekend. Split into two generational stories of 1959 and 1982, CHILDREN is the story of Charly Bloom, who at the age of 12 solved the serial kidnappings/murders of several young girls. Charly is a strong female protangonist - nobody's fool, but by no means perfect. She's a refreshing change from the boring serialized females we've been stuck with for so long. This is author Andrew Nance's third book, but is his first entry into the adult forum. I am very happy that it was offered to me for review. The writing/editing was smooth and clean. I am happy to recommend this book and hope to review future books from Mr. Nance in then future. I hope you read and enjoy ALL THE LOVELY CHILDREN also.

Kept my interest from beginning to end. Didn't see the ending coming.

I thought All The Lovely Children by Andrew Nance was going to be ugly and the Prologue hooked me, creating fear and suspense from the opening words, proving me right. Charly was heading home to Temperance. You know, one of those small towns where everyone knows everyone’s business, except for the killer running AMOK. History is repeating itself. Charly knew all the ins and outs of catching a killer, since she had begun detecting at a very young age. Think Nancy Drew. She had killed the Snatcher, so Kit, an old friend and now the sheriff of Temperance, asked for her help in catching the Copycat Killer. Young or grown, she has the same rebellious, do it myself attitude that gets her in one dangerous situation after another. I love her, no matter how impulsive and reckless she can be. I can picture her, climbing out the window late at night, biking to her friends house, scaring the crap out of him so he falls to the ground, laughing all the way down the road… The suspense builds in the past and the present as the book goes from 1959 to 1982 and back again. Children are missing…murdered…what can be worse that that? I can picture a grown up Charly, sitting on the couch with the 44 Ruger balanced on her knee, pointing the gun at… LOVE it! I know the writing is excellent when images pop into my mind while reading a book. Oh man. I didn’t think Andrew Nance would take me here, but I’m stunned, shocked, sad and sickened. I am only at 80%, so I feel he has more surprises in store for me and I am eager to get to it. We also have a little of the supernatural making an appearance. She sees the dead. It plays more of a cameo role, leaving the story seeming all too real. I had thought of the final twist, but Andrew caused me to disregard it, leading me to believe I was walking down the wrong path…then, POW, in my face. Well, Andrew. You kept me on pins and needles from beginning to end. The writing was super and I do love a little romance with my danger and suspense. The characters were fantastic and I must say, that villain, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. Nothing beats a mind blowing villain. I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of All The Lovely Children by Andrew Nance.
