Hello and welcome to our stop on the Because You’re Mine blog tour!
Thank you very much to Emma @ Damppebbles and Luna Miller for providing a copy of the book to [K]
The reviews below are 100% honest and all of her own views.
Gunvor Ström, a Swedish surgeon who had to retire because her hands weren’t steady enough to perform operations, accepts a position as a private detective and enters a new and surprisingly dangerous career.
In Because You’re Mine, she accepts her second assignment. Is it always for the best to look for a missing person? Gunvor is not entirely sure as she believes there are those who don´t want to be found. Despite this, she takes on a case. A wife needs help to find her husband, Per Cedergren. A simple case at first glance. Gunvor is convinced that he has sneaked off on an adventure with a mistress and soon will return voluntarily.
Gunvor’s good friend Aidan also makes his debut as a private detective when he helps a new acquaintance look for her missing friend.
When Gunvor and Aidan take the help of their young friends, Elin and David, the two parallel cases meander closer each other. But how do they relate? And what do the disappearances have in common with the murders that at first glance appear to be hate crimes.
Soon they find themselves in the eye of the storm, not knowing where the danger lurks.
Because You’re Mine is the second book in the series of private detective Gunvor Ström.
When we first meet Gunvor Ström her last case has finished and she is wondering what to do with herself, accept another case or have some time to herself. Upon visiting the office, a new case captures her attention, despite having reservations about the nature of the task at hand. A missing person? Surely he has just taken a break from his current life and will be back soon?
Gunvor a Swedish surgeon who retired early, turned private investigator, is a strong female lead with a clever mind, teamed with her younger friends they create a formidable investigative force. I loved the interaction between all the characters and the insights we were allowed at times to their thoughts.
I enjoyed reading the story which is set in Sweden and found I could imagine the locations easily. I found this an absorbing read, as this was the first book I have read by Luna, I will shortly be picking up book 1 in the series so I can follow the team into an other investigation whilst I await further books in this series.
