The Summer Children (The Collector #3) Reviews
“Those who turn to violence don't usually have solutions to offer. Or they tried, and lost, and think this is their only way forward.”
The Summer Children is the third (and final) book in the Collector trilogy. The three books even though they are part of a trilogy can easily be read as standalones, they mention previous characters but not enough for the reader to get lost. This one features Agent Ramirez who works at CAC (Crimes against Children), she returns home one night to find a yo ...more
The Summer Children is the third installment in The Collector series. You definitely should read the prior 2 books before reading this one.
I loved the storyline in this book. A guardian angel is "saving" children from their abuse at home and dropping them off at FBI agent Mercedes Ramirez's home where they are told they will be safe. The problem with the book was that there was too much personal drama in it. Do co-workers really have that many sleepovers together? And what is with all the spani ...more
Well now, The Summer Children was a really happy surprise for me! I'm one of those huge fans of The Butterfly Garden who felt a bit let down by Roses of May, so I went into this book hoping for the best but with tempered expectations. I don't know if that tempering helped me have the right perspective for this one or not, but the end result is that I really enjoyed this book!
To be clear, if you're hoping for more of the creepiness that was The Butterfly Garden, you're not going to find it here a ...more
GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME!!!!
I loved this final book in the trilogy! The Butterfly Garden had my attention from the first page and so I was invested in the characters already. And even though this novel deals with horrific instances of child abuse and murder, if you can stomach that you are in for a real treat of a novel! We see the FBI agents, Mercedes, Eddison, Sterling, and Vic as humans with compassion as well as all the flaws that come with life's challenges--especially dealing with the kinds of crimes they do. And so ...more
This story once again returns us to Brandon Eddison, Victor Hanoverian, and Mercedes Ramirez. We also hear from our butterflies, Inara and Bliss. Priya Sravasti is still in contact and our favorite agent from Priya's case, Eliza Sterling, has moved over to Virginia to join our team too. We also get to meet a few new agents, including a friend of Mercedes that she was in training with and I'm hoping to see more of her in future books. As you can see, there are a lot of strong women included in th ...more

Dot Hutchison has done it again! I was enthralled from the first page of The Summer Childrenand could not put this book down! I read it in a day. The characters are vivid and compelling. The plot kept me guessing, kept me turning the pages long into the night. The writing is beautiful, haunting, and heartbreaking.
The story is set three years after the events of The Roses of May and focuses on a new serial k ...more
Butterfly garden was awesome.Roses of May disappointing.Summer children had a few really exciting parts,but I got bored.I just had no connection with any of the characters who were entirely uninteresting.A massive difference to the characters in the Butterfly Garden.There were so many 'incidents' that it got a bit repetitive.
