No Pity In Death by Helen Starbuck

Welcome to the blog tour for Annie Collins Mystery Series hosted by iRead Book Tours!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is the second book in the Annie Collins mysteries, and I really enjoyed the continuation of Annie’s story. Annie had some rough situations in the last book, and she is still dealing with the aftermath as we start book 2.

This story focuses on the mystery of DNR patients being killed off at her hospital. I liked that there was still this medical mystery portion of the story, but we also go to invest in a romance plot for Annie. I liked that something that was a spark of romance from book one was delved into more in this story.

I would recommend starting at the beginning of this series, rather than starting in book 2, but I think that there is enough backstory provided that if you did pick this one up in the middle, you wouldn’t be lost. It does, however, explore some themes from book one that might not be quite as exciting for a reader without reading that first book.

I listened to the audio version of this book, and the narrator has done a fabulous job. Her voice is perfect for this story. She is easy to listen to and does a great job with the characters!

Overall, I really enjoyed this book! I loved the character development and the mystery. It was a great second book, and I’m looking forward to book 3!

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend No Pity In Death for readers that enjoy a mystery series with a flawed heroine lots of twists, and some romance!

The Mad Hatter’s Son by Helen Starbuck – Review of Book 1

Struggling to put her life back together after almost being murdered, OR nurse Annie Collins agrees to help homicide Detective Alex Frost investigate a troubling number of patient deaths in the ICU step down unit at her hospital. The deaths are not unexpected, but Annie and Frost wonder whether someone is helping patients die. Assistant district attorney Angel Cisneros, Annie’s close friend and neighbor, worries about her involvement with Frost’s investigation and about her well being after all she’s been through. His worry escalates after a person from her past contacts her. His feelings for her make dealing with the repercussions of both difficult. Will Angel go from girl-of-the-month to something serious with Annie? Dangerous enemies are one thing Annie and Angel have in common. Angel and another ADA are the targets of tire slashing, vandalism, and harassment that may or may not be related to a trial and its verdict. Is it juvenile payback for the verdict by an unhappy friend or relative of a defendant, or is it more deadly than that? As both Annie and Angel discover, paybacks are hell. Be sure to read the first book in this series, The Mad Hatter’s Son, and stay tuned for the third in the series due Fall of 2019.
