With Red Hands is the second book in 'violet' series from Stephen Woodworth. This one has Natalie, and her now 6 year old daughter Callie, coping on their own without Dan (Callie's father). Natalie gets called by a friend to help with a case and from that point on a lot goes wrong. A serial killer start inhabiting the bodies of other violets and murdering more people.
Woodworth did a great job of showing the loss that Natalie is still feeling from losing Dan. It makes me feel sad for her and for Callie. I really liked Dan in the first book so I was still a little sad that he was no longer really a character. I don't remember much being said about her mom in the previous book, yet it was a major part of the plot in this one. I'm glad she finally accepts her Dad, and Dan's parents and lets Callie get to know them.
There's still a mystery in the book, even though it's more of a "how is she going to get out of it" rather than a "who did it".
I enjoyed this book more than the first one so I'm anxiously waiting to read the third in the series!!
Also - as a side note - I think you need to read the first book in the series before you read this one because it won't make too much sense.
