Brilliant, captivating, hard hitting, devastating. One of the most thought provoking books I have read in a long time.
This is the type of book you read and believe in, you get to know the characters as if they have lived next door to you all your life, you feel their pain and sorrow and their elation.
I read it in a day, couldnt put it down. Kept me guessing all the way to the end, brilliantly written, despite almost making you feel wary for reading about such a taboo subject.
I recommend this to anyone!

From the very beginning, I was appalled, disgusted, and hooked! And, it only got better from there. I read the whole thing as if on a rollercoaster of emotion. At times I found myself yelling out loud at the characters, other times hugging myself in sadness.

Great work, very well researched, and emotionally charged.

A very touchy subject but still compelling reading. I read this book in three consecutive evenings which is an indication of how good it was (I would normally have spread it over a few more). The main characters were well defined and very plausible. The tension built up well throughout the book to a very fast paced climax.
An awful lot of work has obviously gone in to researching the subject of child sex abuse and the in depth insights in to the seedy and depraved mind and world of the paedophile may not be to everyones taste but the book is well planned and thought out so the way the story unfolds and captivates the reader detracts from the heinous acts which are taking place.
The book was very well paced and kept me guessing to the very end.
I look forward to reading the next offering by this author.

Possibly the best book I have read in a long time! The story line was gripping, I couldn’t wait to turn the page to find out what was happening next. Written with such detail that you will find yourself totally immersed and engrossed. The subject matter of the book is a disturbing one but the way the story is written it is more about the killer and the race to capture him than the details of the kill, so read the book it will have you hooked. I know I was.

I look forward to the next book this amazing new author has to offer. So much so that I have since bought I kindle!

Sugar and Spice takes place in modern day England where a madman is abducting children and sending parents across the country into a frenzy and panic. Local detectives scramble to glue together the clues while a young mother of one of the victims takes matters into her own hands by launching her own investigation. The kidnapper’s identity is kept a secret until the very end of the book, prompting readers to turn page after page. The author keeps up the suspense by shining a light on several potential suspects but without giving away too much information.

It’s clear Ms. Desforges did her research of her local law enforcement and crime/punishment. The book comes across as well plotted and well thought out. It’s written in the omniscient POV, taking the reader into the heads of several characters. The vibrantly descriptive scenes gives the reader a clear picture of each scene but without being too overwhelming.

If you’re looking for a good mystery with plenty of twists and turns then Sugar and Spice is one you want to pick up.
