I am super excited today that it is my first blog tour of 2017 and I am kicking off Little Girl Lost by Carol Wyer which is out today. I have a good feeling about this book and you can grab your copy on the link below.
LITTLE GIRL LOST by Carol Wyer
(Detective Robyn Carter crime thriller series Book 1)
Out on January 19th:
A perfect family hiding disturbing secrets. A killer who wants the truth to be told.
A teacher is found dead, close to the school where he works.
A millionaire is murdered at a local reservoir.
For Detective Robyn Carter, there’s no obvious link between the victims. Apart from one thing. The bodies both have the same grisly trophy beside them - a bloodstained toy rabbit.
As Robyn starts to delve into the lives of the two dead men, her investigations lead her to Abigail, perfect wife and mother to beautiful little Izzy. What was Abigail’s connection to the victims? And why is she receiving threatening messages from an anonymous number?
But as Robyn starts to inch closer to finding the killer, Izzy is abducted.
Unless Robyn gets to the twisted individual in time, a little girl will die …
Gripping, fast paced and nailbitingly tense, this serial killer thriller will chill you to the bone. Discover Carol Wyer’s new series – at a special launch price.
Little Girl lost is Carol Wyer first crime thriller introducing a new detective. I am familiar with the author's writing having read Life Swap which is a comedy. But I seriously cannot not believe this is Carol's debut crime novel. She certainly knows how to entertain her readers but wowers this story is absolutely flipping brilliant.....I was totally blown away! talk about grabbing you round the throat and not letting you go until the very last page! And it's been awhile since I've said that about a book.
The Prologue starts off introducing the reader to Alice totally setting the scene for what's to come. That was it for me I was hooked…..Boy do I love a good Prologue!
DI Robyn Carter is back at work after the loss of her husband and finds herself on a missing persons case. First of all a teacher goes missing under suspicious circumstances and an actor is murdered at a local reservoir there’s no obvious link between the cases. But as DI Robyn Carter starts to delve deeper, her investigations lead her to Abigail, perfect wife and mother to beautiful little Izzy. But how is Abigail connected to the victims? And why is she receiving threatening messages from an anonymous number?
With a story line alternating to chapters written from the Killer's point of view building up one creepy nail biting story.I actually read most of it with my jaw hanging off the floor. The tension in it is unbelievable. And kept me guessing until the end.
Carol certainly is a dark horse and my only question is why has it taken so long for her to come over to the dark side! This is certainly going to be one hell of a series and I am sure there is plenty more to know about Robyn. Which I am looking forward to. Massive high five Carol.
This story ticked all the boxes for me. This a must read which I highly recommend it giving it a well deserved 5 stars.
