Gypsy Cradle (The Gypsy Medium Series, #2) by Andrea Drew

Gypsy Cradle by Andrea Drew **** 5 Stars!****
Reviewed by Author Holly Newhouse for Eternal Book Reviews

Book Description: 

Eleven months after saving herself from an obsessed killer, Gypsy Shields is enjoying her normal life again—or what passes for normal for a psychic. Abruptly, her new found peace is disturbed by a strange vision. An eerie little girl named Isabella appears before a rocking cradle with disturbing news. Connor, Gypsy’s boyfriend, is a Sentinel meant to protect her and other psychics. But can he protect his own niece when she’s put in danger by someone she trusts?

Connor’s family has too many painful secrets, and Gypsy’s already meddled with them too much. Now they won’t heed her warnings. Trying to rescue them regardless will strain Gypsy’s relationship with every one of them—including Connor himself. Even if, with Isabella’s help, she can save an innocent woman’s life, she may lose the love of her own.

Note: This book can be read as either a standalone story, or ideally as book 2 in the Gypsy Series. Connor and Gypsy finally get it on romantically and of course Gypsy drops the f bomb every now and then, because that's how she rolls...

Book Review:
            Oh where to start? This book had me hooked from the first paragraph just as Gypsy Hunted did. This was a fantastic book! I can't give it enough praise and am absolutely in love with Author Andrea Drew's amazing ability as a writer and in how she crafts her stories, giving you just a bit of information and clues at a time to keep you wanting to read more and then at the end yelling into space that you weren't finished with the story yet, that you want more, so much more from this magnificent storyteller!! I had to force myself to read this book in sections or else I would have been up all day and night reading it in one setting, already knowing what to expect from Author Drew from her first book Gypsy Hunted which was also exquisitely done. But, this book would not let me rest in peace at night! Nope, it's amazing and very realistic and complex characters haunted my dreams even as the book called me back to its pages for ever more of the story. Needless to say, after one night of haunted dreams, I had to heed its mesmerizing call and read the rest of it in one sitting!
            The storyline is well thought out and brilliantly executed as well as being fast paced and highly engaging. The plot, characters, scenes, settings, and dialogue were majestic in their creation and complexity. The way clues are given slowly throughout the storyline and the complexity of everything just amazes me at how Author Andrea Drew was able to keep everything straight in her head while completing the hard work of an author which is not as easy as some think it is. A tremendous amount of work, heart and soul went into another fantastic creation of Drew's books. 

The character development as I said was complex and realistic and yet left just enough to the readers imagination with their descriptions allowing the reader to really visualize what he or she is reading in a way that makes a profound impact upon them. This is going to be another best seller for sure! I would absolutely love to see Gypsy Hunted and Gypsy Cradle both made into movies as they would be the best I have ever seen and believe me, I have already seen the movies playing out in my mind as I read both books. 

Author Andrea Drew has a tremendous gift when it comes to writing realistic and majestic stories that are not only full of suspense, intrigue, mystery and thrill the senses but take the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride that leaves them gripping the edge of their seat and wanting so very much more at the same time. 

If you have not read this book, make sure you read it today. I promise you it will be one of the best reads of your year or even your lifetime!

I highly recommend this book to all readers, not to just those in the thriller/mystery/suspense genres.
