Rose lives with her grandmother after her mother and stepfather disappeared 5 years before.

This episode of the story is spent in Newcastle where her stepbrother Joshua grew up.
Joshua (at university in London) and his friend Skeggsie (Joshua’s best friend in London and a techie) is helping Rose and Joshua with the search for their parents who went out for dinner one night and never came back.

Previous episodes have led them to know that their parents are alive and involved in something to do with

This book certainly had a lot of plot development in the mystery. We finally start getting some solid, concrete answers as to what actually happened to Josh and Rose’s parents. There of course are some other mysteries involved as well, and we find out how a lot of them are connected. I’m not quite sure what the final book will offer, as this one seemed to be pretty conclusive. But I do feel like there still needs to be some wrapping up, at the very least. But I hope that’s not all there is in th ...more

In this book, the pair wind up in Newcastle where Skeggsie and Josh grew up. Only upon returning for Christmas, everything falls apart as Josh's uncle winds up in hospital after a bad fall.

Only things become much more serious and sombre as old bullies show up and cause trouble as well as a surprising twist with some officers whom know their parents and whereabouts to do with how and why they disappeared...

This was a serious and emotional book as a tragic death which will shock occurs. There's se

After not enjoying the second book in this series, I gave up on it. However, yesterday I thought that I might as well give this book a shot. I had started reading it before, getting about a quarter of the way through it, but did find it very boring. Once I had started reading it again I could not put it down. It was full of suspense and very dramatic. This seemed to have a better plot than the first two in the series and actually I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm glad that some of the main questions ...more

I absolutely adore the Murder Notebooks series! Butterfly Grave by Anne Cassidy is the third book in this series and just as we were able to explore more about Rose and her past in the previous book, in Butterfly Grave not only do we get some very crucial information regarding Rose's mum and Joshua's dad and the things they have been involved in, but we also learn a bit more about Joshua and Skeggsie's life prior to the start of the series. I found it all very interesting and I thought Butterfly ...more

This is the third book in The Murder Notebooks YA crime series, and I was looking forward to reading it.

Rose and Joshua are close, they've got a special bond. It's not just that their parents were a couple and at one time they lived together as a family. Their bond stems from loss. Rose's mother and Joshua's father disappeared five years ago. After reconnecting, the teens are determined to find out what happened to their parents and don't believe claims that they are dead. To conduct their own i
*2 1/2 stars*

The Murder Notebooks has been a series I have enjoyed reading, and has been one that has constantly left me guessing over what was going to happen next. When Butterfly Grave came up for review I didn't hesitate in saying yes to a copy, I wanted to know what Rose, Joshua and Skeggsie were going to do next and if they would get any closer to finding out the truth.

I will be honest in saying Butterfly Grave took me forever to read, partly because of what was going on in my personal life

2.5 stars.
Don't get me wrong, it wasn't terrible and the plot is alright, but I just had so many problems with it.
The thing that stood out to me the most was editing that seemed non-existent. There were commas and question marks where there shouldn't be and for some reason I found the excessive use of exclamation marks almost childish and almost thought they took away from the story.
Speaking of...I didn't feel like there was a climax to the book, even after a certain death. This may be due to th

Those series just gets better as it progresses. The fact that this book is set in Whitley Bay when Joshua goes home to look after his Uncle after an accident, was a bonus for me as I connected with this part of the story more being so familiar with the setting. The clues of the multiple mystery threads all come together so well, especially after what happens with Skeggsie and Rose finding out who the mystery woman is who is watching them. The Butterfly Murder and it's significance with Joshua's ...more

Joshua's uncle has had a 'accident' after 'falling' off of a cliff edge. There is a murder that affects Rose and Joshua greatly. There mum and dad get in touch with them after 5 years and explain why they left them. Joshua's uncle is involved in the butterfly murder.

My favourite character is Rose because of her mixed up feelings about Joshua and how she keeps it hidden from him (most of the time). I liked the cover as it looked very mysterious especially with the person stood on top of the cliff
Ok. So now we know what's going on with their parents. KINDA. I guess the final book will be them reuniting and everything finally coming out and being explained??

I still can't believe they killed Skeggsie! I was totally starting to like him! Plus, I totes think he was gay and was maybe starting to have a relationship with Eddie. That's why 1) he was always picked on as a child and 2) why he's so protective over Joshua. HE'S SECRETLY IN LOVE WITH HIM!

Anyways, a pretty solid read. I'm excited to

I had been waiting so long to read this book and let me tell you...IT. DID. NOT. DISAPPOINT!
Cassidy has done it again!!! This series just seems to get better and better as it goes on!! I couldn't believe some of the events and twists in this book! Sooo exciting!
And I am loving Joshua and Rose at the moment!!!! Ooh! My jaw was dropping! <3 finally!! Hehe
Butterfly Grave is definitely worth the read and has left me hungry for the final instalment!!! Aaaah! :D
A very good book that allows our imaginations to delve deeper into the truth about Rose and Josh's parents. Equally as good as the first book 'Dead Time' and better than the second 'Killing Rachel', Cassidy once again sends us into emotional turmoil over the death of one of the three main characters and the period of mourning the other two main characters go through. Overall a great third book and can't wait to read the last in the series. ...more

Overall, I thought this book was pretty good. While I have to admit that this series isn't exactly my favourite series in the thriller/mystery genre, however I do always enjoy how this book series has been written so far and the plots and turns are fleshed out well. So yeah, it was definitely a fun and quick read.

* Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a review copy of this book!

The third book in this series...I loved every moment. Sometimes you find that some books in a series are better than others, but with this particular book and this particular series, the books are all evenly matched under the 'amazing' category. A gripping read where every corner takes a different turn...A MUST READ for anyone over 13.

All I want to say is, because I don't want to spoil any of it, is "I want to cry so bad". Anne Cassidy you did it again. Both destroying and making my day with this wonderful book that had me gripped with every page. These stories inspire me to write and to always watch my back! ...more
