My review of Little Girl Lost by Carol Wyer
2017 has been a feast of 5-star books for me and Carol Wyer is at the top of my list. It was minutes between ending Little Girl Lost and beginning the next in the series, Secrets of the Dead.
Carol Wyer weaves a tale of hurt, pain, secrets, and changed identities. Abigail is the center of a whirlwind of activity. Missing people, dead people, and Abigail is being threatened. Creepy voiced phone calls, voices in her house, emails, texts… all that disappear as quickly as they appear. Her husband Jackson thinks she’s lost her mind.
DI Robyn Carter has a painful past as well, and while she grieves the loss of her boyfriend Davies, she works for her cousin Ross’s PI firm. Upon returning to the force, she still enlists the help of Ross… mostly to carry off the things she’d get herself in trouble for. LOL Ross is totally lovable, and is an enjoyable asset to the story.
Little Girl Lost does contain some pedophelia. Carol Wyer allows you to understand the gravity of what is going on without a whole lot of graphics.
I read Little Girl Lost quickly, I couldn’t put it down. Every time I thought I knew what was going on, it turned out to be totally wrong. TWISTY!!
I read a few reviews which stated that the book is slow, graphic and too long. I don’t agree with that at all. First, graphic doesn’t bother me, I know it’s fake. I stated above that it wasn’t too graphic and I still agree. This is a long book, yes, but engaging and well paced.
5-stars and two thumbs up. If you are into twisty crime thrillers, Carol Wyer is one to have on your watch list!
