Sugar and Spice takes place in modern day England where a madman is abducting children and sending parents across the country into a frenzy and panic. Local detectives scramble to glue together the clues while a young mother of one of the victims takes matters into her own hands by launching her own investigation. The kidnapper's identity is kept a secret until the very end of the book, prompting readers to turn page after page. The author keeps up the suspense by shining a light on several potential suspects but without giving away too much information.
It's clear Ms. Desforges did her research of her local law enforcement and crime/punishment. The book comes across as well plotted and well thought out. It's written in the omniscient POV, taking the reader into the heads of several characters. The vibrantly descriptive scenes gives the reader a clear picture of each scene but without being too overwhelming.
If you're looking for a good mystery with plenty of twists and turns then Sugar and Spice is one you want to pick up.
