The novel is set a few months after the conclusion of The Butterfly Garden, but in common the two novels have the FBI agents that deal with the investigations.
Here the focus is on a serial killer that each spring kills a girl in a church and covers her body with flowers, different each time. Priya’s sister was one of the victims, and Priya has not recovered from this loss, moreover some hints brings her and the FBI in thinking that the killer is interested in her.
The novel interchanges feedback from the killer with the present time: on one side Priya and on the other the three agents dealing also with the girls who survived the Garden.
I liked the previous novel of the series, and for this reason I had expectations from this one, but I think The Roses of May is not thrilling enough for the kind of book this is.
Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
