Book Review - Say You're Sorry (Joseph O'Loughlin #6) by by Michael Robotham

Say You're Sorry (Joseph O'Loughlin #6)

Say You're Sorry (Joseph O'Loughlin #6) by by Michael Robotham

From Goodreads:


When pretty and popular teenagers Piper Hadley and Tash McBain disappear one Sunday morning, the investigation captivates a nation but the girls are never found.

Three years later, during the worst blizzard in a century, a husband and wife are brutally killed in the farmhouse where Tash McBain once lived. A suspect is in custody, a troubled young man who can hear voices and claims that he saw a girl that night being chased by a snowman.

Convinced that Piper or Tash might still be alive, clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin and ex-cop Vincent Ruiz, persuade the police to re-open the investigation. But they are racing against time to save the girls from someone with an evil, calculating and twisted mind...


Even though this is Book #6 in the series, I haven't read anything by this author before, and I didn't feel like I missed out on not reading #1-5 first. I think I found this book from other bloggers. I used to track better where I "discovered" the book, but that had become too much work... so sorry for not giving credit where credit was due!

The story alternated between clinical psychologist Joe O'Loughlin and Piper. I liked it - I liked Joe as a main lead - he's observant and analytical (my type!) and I liked how the story was told. 

I was able to guess the bad guy though (well either this person, or this other person lol) but I think when you read a lot of genre, you just couldn't help yourself but guess who dunnit. 

3.5 Stars.

Note - The book was borrowed from the library.

  1. I enjoy the trying to guess who dunnit too and am not upset when I do.

    What do you use to save want to read books? I use LibraryThing and I find it most useful, I put where I saw the book there.

    1. I usually use Goodreads to do a 'want to read' - I think there's a way to leave a comment there, but usually I am too lazy since that's an extra step, so I just click "want to read" instead of having to open up another window... I used to keep a spreadsheet on the books I want to read, and where I hear that from, so that when I write my review I can refer back to that... but again, too lazy to do that now...

      I am usually not too upset if I don't get it right, in fact, I usually like it if I am wrong, just so I could be surprised! But the author totally have the power to control how much s/he wants us to know :)
