I Dare You Twice (Kate Blakemore Book 2) by Murray Bailey


Hello Readers,

Thank you Murray Bailey for Sending me I Dare You Twice for free in exchange for an honest review
Spoilers

Having read I Dare You, I was so hooked that I immediately read the sequel which picks up 3 years later. Kate has developed into something of a PI, helping people who have been let down by the police. Fourteen days ago, teenager Jemila Dacks disappeared from a locked room, and the local police are stumped and Kate is brought in to try and locate the missing girl. Kate and her boyfriend are working two different missing person cases. Kate is investigating a missing girl in Canada while Scott is looking for his twin in the Middle East. I found I wanted to skip the side story based in Syria. However, I stuck with it and found it to be realistic and helped me appreciate what Kate’s partner was doing and why. But the past comes back to haunt them and Kate's life is in danger.

Kate leaves Canada and travels home to the UK before following the clues to Paris. There’s a lot going on and there are puzzles along the way to keep you guessing right 'til the very end. I loved the code that took Kate into the catacombs of Paris and felt I was with her face to face with creepy skulls and bones. I personally don’t have a problem with the story jumping to different locations and characters as I feel this helps keep the pace up.

Overall it was a good follow up with many layers to keep me thinking. I reviewed the previous book and think people who haven't read the first book before reading this one could struggle unlike the Ash Carter series (yes, I read the second book first). This was a fun read that generally keeps you guessing about who can be trusted and who can't. Kate has developed nicely as a character and is drawn into two investigations. It's fresh and a page turner and did keep me guessing.
