Detective Angie Pallorino took down a serial killer permanently and, according to her superiors, with excessive force. Benched on a desk assignment for twelve months, Angie struggles to maintain her sense of identity—if she’s not a detective, who is she? Then a decades-old cold case washes ashore, pulling her into an investigation she recognizes as deeply personal.

Angie’s lover and partner, James Maddocks, sees it, too. But spearheading an ongoing probe into a sex-trafficking ring and keeping Angie’s increasing obsession with her case in check is taking its toll. However, as startling connections between the parallel investigations emerge, Maddocks realizes he has more than Angie’s emotional state to worry about.

Driven and desperate to solve her case, Angie goes rogue, risking her relationship, career, and very life in pursuit of answers. She’ll learn that some truths are too painful to bear, and some sacrifices include collateral damage.

But Angie Pallorino won’t let it go. She can’t. It’s not in her blood.

The Lullaby Girl by Loreth Anne White is a novel that delves much more deeply into the past of Angie Pallorino, the heroine of book 1, The Drowned Girls.

There are a lot of series books you can get away with reading out of order, but I don’t feel this series is one of them. Do yourself a favor and read The Drowned Girls – the 5-star book 1 in the Angie Pallorino series. It’s hard to discuss The Lullaby Girl without giving away The Drowned Girls, but I will try.

After a rough take-down of a serial killer, the MVPD has assigned Angie to their social media desk for a year. A position that Angie none too pleased about. But this situation allots Angie the time to research her past.

In the meantime, a foot in a shoe has washed up on the shore of the river. A little purple shoe, with a child’s foot in it. And when the police show up to Angie’s desk with information that the foot relates to her past, she becomes more frantic with her research.

The Lullaby Girl is a 4.5-star book for me. I rarely give reviews with half stars; however, I enjoyed The Drowned Girls a little more, but The Lullaby Girl is excellent too.

Loreth Anne White is a writer who goes very in depth with her stories. There is nothing shallow here, which is what I love about her books. The Lullaby Girl was no exception.
