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?… (mais)

Really enjoyed this. Great, well thought out and imperfect characters. A couple of red herrings which had me questioning my theories, and nicely wrapped up.

Possible spoilers re characters.

Personally, I would have preferred that the previous novel's characters were excluded from this novel and the focus was solely on Priya and her story. I couldn't put aside the thought that agent's wouldn't become friends with, and constantly check in on, victims of crime's regardless of how well they knew them in the week's following rescue. This is more of a preference than a criticism, as if you enjoyed the previous characters, you'll be happy to see them again and check in on them! Really great story! ( )

I try to express only my most honest opinion in a spoiler-free way. Unfortunately, there is still always a risk of slight spoilers despite my best efforts. If you feel something in my review is a spoiler please let me know. Thank you.

Not as good as the first. I honestly figured it wouldn't be and almost didn't continue the series. At least this book hasn't slaughtered it for me though. It was just kind of eventless. Nothing much really happened and even the big reveal and such was quick, boring, and predictable. I honestly don't know if I'll continue the series or not. ( )

Priya Sravasti's sister Chavi was murdered by a serial killer five years ago. Every year, a different girl is found dead in a church, surrounded by flowers. Priya and her mom, Deshani, have moved several times since Chavi was killed, but it seems the killer has found her.
The three FBI agents handling the Butterfly Garden case, Vic, Eddison, and Ramirez, are also haunted by the case of the dead girls surrounded by flowers. The victims intertwine. The agents are desperately trying to keep Priya safe.
This book is not quite as gruesome or dark as The Butterfly Garden, but it is still suspenseful, while giving hope. Priya is a brave young woman. This book highlights her struggle to rediscover herself and become the person she was going to be before her sister's brutal murder. ( )

Note: This book was provided by NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

Right off the bat I'm going to give my trigger warnings for this book, although it isn't necessarily a comprehensive list. I will not be discussing these triggers in my review. Content warning for The Roses of May for: eating disorders, stalking, and sexual assault.

I was STOKED when I saw this on NetGalley. I had just read The Butterfly Garden a month or two beforehand and couldn't believe my luck in stumbling across an ARC of the sequel. I gave The Butterfly Garden five stars and was really looking forward to what Dot Hutchinson was up to next.

Let me just start off by saying that even though I hyped this book up in my mind, it completely lived up to it. I didn't even read the plot summary because I was so sure that Dot would pull out another wonderful work. It was kind of nice to go in cold and without much in the way of expectations as far as plot goes, but I will briefly cover the story.

The Roses of May is definitely a sequel to The Butterfly Garden. I think I've seen a few folks say it could work as a standalone piece, but I really disagree. I mean, it's certainly possible to read it without any context, but I just don't think it'll hold up as well. A lot of the characters carry over and their stories are so closely tied that I don't think it would do the story justice not to have that background.

The Roses of May focuses on a young woman named Priya whose story is largely unrelated to The Butterfly Garden, save for the fact that the same group of FBI agents had worked a case close to her. Dot Hutchinson uses this connection to weave Priya's story in with that of the Butterflies'. This book follows Priya's life five years after the murder of her older sister. Naturally, the killer returns and the agents are on the case. It sounds a little cheesy, but it's really well done in my opinion.

Dot Hutchinson's writing is fantastic, per usual. I remembered being struck by her writing in The Butterfly Garden and was glad to experience it again so soon! The story was immersive, the characters were wonderful, and it was almost impossible for me to put down. It was also wonderful to read a book with women of color as the main characters! There are also two notable lgbt women, which I was super excited about! There are so many complex women in Dot Hutchinson's books, I love it. It was also great to see a really nice mom-daughter relationship, which I feel like we don't see enough of.

Overall, The Roses of May was a fantastic read that I would highly recommend to anyone interested, but would probably be best for lovers of thriller and crime. I can see why it wouldn't work for some people, but I loved it! ( )

This book was still really good, just not as good as the first one. I liked how this one focused on the characters more. It was cool to get to know the FBI agents. I obviously like Inara and Bliss (although I have trouble remembering her from the first book), but I like Priya and her mom a lot too. ( )
