Vanishing Girls by Lisa Regan #BlogTour

I am super excited to be kicking off Vanishing Girls by Lisa Regan today with a 4 star review on publication day

The Book
The little girl curled into a tiny ball as the chamber grew colder around her.
“Please,” she whispered, rocking back and forth. “I want to go home.”

When Isabelle Coleman, a blonde, beautiful young girl goes missing, everyone from the small town of Denton joins the search. They can find no trace of the town’s darling, but Detective Josie Quinn finds another girl they didn’t even know was missing. 

Mute and unresponsive, it’s clear this mysterious girl has been damaged beyond repair. All Josie can get from her is the name of a third girl and a flash of a neon tongue piercing that matches Isabelle’s.

The race is on to find Isabelle alive, and Josie fears there may be other girls in terrible danger. When the trail leads her to a cold case labelled a hoax by authorities, Josie begins to wonder is there anyone left she can trust? 

Someone in this close-knit town is committing unspeakable crimes. Can Josie catch the killer before another victim loses their life?

Utterly gripping crime for readers who adored Angela Marsons, Helen Fields and Robert Dugoni. You will be sleeping with the lights on once you discover the first in this unputdownable new crime thriller series. 

My thoughts

Vanishing Girls is the first book in the Detective Josie Quinn series and this is in fact the first book that I have read by this author and certainly wont be my last. Vanishing Girls is a brilliant start to a new series which I couldn’t put down and devoured it in one day.

The book starts off with one chilling prologue that left me wanting more. Set in a small town of Denton Pennsylvania, a young girl  Isabelle Coleman goes missing But then Detective Josie Quinn finds an unresponsive damaged girl that they didn’t know had gone missing. Fearing that other girls are in danger It is a race against time to catch the killer and find Isabelle alive. 

Josie is one hell of a strong feisty character who is stubborn and very independent which I love. There is plenty of character build up and really do get to her. She hasn’t had the best of luck  with her personal life and her job. Josie is actually suspended from work but that doesn’t stop her getting involved in this case. Has the story unfolds we learn that she is a very determined woman and wont give up. I love everything about her

This story will have you on the edge of your seat willing Josie along it is full of twists and turns . Without giving to much away the last 25% really did it for me when it all picked up speed and became very gritty with one hell of an OMG moment.

This is a must read for Karin Slaughter fans and cannot wait to read what is in store next I highly recommend it giving it 4 well deserved stars.
