Publisher's Summary

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?

    "Not what I had expected"

    I really had high hopes for this book because I absolutely loved The Butterfly Garden! I was pretty disappointed to see how short it fell to the first book. Most of it was repetitive and boring. I think if the POV had been from the killer instead it would have made the whole book so much better. Will Damron did a fantastic job! His voice for the killer gave me chills! Siiri's narration on the other hand sounded robotic and stunted. There were some parts of the book that were heartbreaking, but she read them completely emotionless. I couldn't get into her sections. That made it hard to rate the performance. I would easily give Will Damron 5 stars, but I would give Siiri 1 star.

    "Boring"

    Words can't describe how disappointing this book is. The butterfly garden was amazing. This one not at all.

    "Very predictable story line. Was a disappointment"

    after the first book. The female narrator is distracting trying to change her voices. Disappointment.

    I truly enjoyed this book as much as the Butterfly Garden. Great characters, interesting plot, a few twists, pretty dark. Great!

    "The Roses of May 😴"
    If you could sum up The Roses of May in three words, what would they be?

    DISAPPOINTING, CONFUSION, REPETITIVE


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    NO


    What does Siiri Scott and Will Damron bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    UNFORTUNATELY, NO AND I THINK THAT'S BECAUSE OF THE STORY NOT THEM


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    SKIP THE SEQUEL...😬


    Any additional comments?

    AS WITH ANY EXCELLENT BOOK, MOVIE, ETC. WE ALWAYS EXPECT TOO MUCH OUT OF THE SEQUEL . AT LEAST I DID! SINCE THIS IS A TRILOGY, LETS HOPE SHE TAKES HER TIME AND "KICKS A-- WITH THE THIRD. I LOVED BUTTERFLY!!!! 😬. 😀😀😀😀😀😀😀

    "Good Read, But The Butterfly Garden Is Tough to Follow"

    The Butterfly Garden was so incredibly good that it would have been a unique event if the second book in the series was as riveting. Don’t get me wrong- still a great book and definitely has goosebumps moments. It answers some questions I had after The Butterfly Garden, as well. Give it a read, just know that it drags from time to time. Great performance!

    "Compulsions"

    "Not quite as compelling at the first book"

    I liked that some of the characters were slightly familiar from the Butterfly Garden but I didn't feel this had quite the same grip on me.

    I wanted to hear more from the Butterflies as it felt like they had very minor pointless parts in this book. Priya was a good character but I didn't feel engaged enough with her story.

    It was good but I had higher expectations I guess, as I was so gripped by the first book

    Story
    "good but not as good as the butterfly garden"

    the narrators do a good job (except when the guy is doing Priyas mum. he murders that accent)

    the butterfly garden was really imaginative but this was kind of just an average, pretty predictable, murder mystery.

    the author also has some really odd ideas of what you should do if you find out someone has binged on oreos. Probably avoid following this example

    Story
    "Loved it"

    Loved this book. I especially liked the way the story from the first book carried over, with the trials of the 'butterflies after they escaped the 'garden'. Then the 2 stories almost combined with the FBI agents and the other characters becoming involved in each others lives.
