BLOG TOUR - Hush Little Girl


DESCRIPTION:

Dressed in pajamas covered with stars, the little girl’s body is perfectly still, her arms folded neatly over her chest. The wildflowers decorating her hair scatter across the grass in the sharp breeze. Her lips are parted slightly, as if to whisper goodnight for the very last time…

When twelve-year-old Holly Mitchell’s fragile little body is found on the steps of a mountainside church in the small town of Denton, a doll made from pine cones clasped tightly to her chest, Detective Josie Quinn rushes to attend the scene. She knows this little girl’s angelic face, her mother had offered Josie help when she’d needed it most.

Searching the girl’s house, Josie is devastated to find that Holly’s mother is dead too, and her little sister is missing. But why has this family home been stripped of all sharp objects? Re-tracing her steps, Josie finally finds a secret hiding place with Holly’s sister inside, terrified, but alive. Moments later, another doll made of twigs turns up.

Certain the killer is close by, Josie holds the little girl tight and tries to coax answers from her, but it’s clear the pile of burnt photographs and letters found in the greenhouse is her only lead. No one is safe until Josie can figure out the dangerous secret that has escaped this remote family home.

Just when Josie is finally closing in on the killer, the unthinkable happens, a tragedy that shakes her to her very core. And on the windshield of her car: a third wooden doll. Could stopping this twisted monster from taking more innocent lives come at the ultimate price for Josie?

An absolutely gripping rollercoaster ride of a crime thriller from an Amazon, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine.

Detective Josie Quinn and her fiancé Noah barely got to the church in time for their long-awaited wedding. In fact, an accident on the way almost completely derailed them. Frenzied as can be, they are finally getting ready to stand before everyone and make their vows. However, a commotion outside is taking place, cause Josie to be greatly distracted. Before long, Josie and Noah's fellow police officers begin to gather outside. Josie just has to know what is going on.

They soon discover that the body of a twelve-year-old girl has been found right there at the church. Neither Josie nor Noah feel they can simply go about their wedding as planned. In fact, they both rush to the scene, despite being fully dressed for their wedding. In fact, Josie's fellow officers tell them to go on and get married. But, how can they after the discovery of the body of the little girl?

Thus begins an intense investigation that Josie must be a part of. She recognized the child from a previous investigation. Josie and the others rush to her home, only to find further tragedy, made even more concerning when at first they discover that Emily, the sister of the child found dead, is missing. Time is definitely of the essence. When Josie indeed finds Emily, finding the killer is ever more critical.

What a quandary! With more than one possible suspect, Josie, Noah and the others race against time trying the keep Emily safe, all while finding secrets, lies and danger at every turn. This compelling read by Lisa Regan is taut with tension that never once lets up. 

This series is definitely going strong, and this book, Hush Little Girl, is wonderfully executed, and goes from danger to excitement to drama and back again without missing a beat. The characterization is excellent, the drama compelling and the conclusion heart-wrenching, leaving me more than eager to see what else is in store for Josie, Noah and the rest of the team.

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review.  This is my honest opinion.
