Detective Casey White it’s not only trying to find the murderer of a teenage girl but she also is desperate to find the girls eight-year-old sister Shawna. No doubt notifying a family when they lose a child is devastating, Casey’s job was that much harder when they realize that Shawna is missing. At the scene of the crime, a lighthouse near a beach, items are located that show that Shawna was likely kept at the location where the body was found. Casey can’t help but ponder as to why Shawna is missing. Furthermore, if Shawna is still alive, will they get to her in time?
As the search intensifies Casey discovers that the girls attended a funfair in the village. Talking to as many people as possible, turning over every clue, alerts Casey that something similar has happened before and that rests in cold cases that go back years. Casey uses her skills and rugged determination to connect past events to what is going on now with sincere hopes of finding Shawna alive.
Although the suspect pool is quite large, solving this case proves to be quite challenging because the members of the community appear to be keeping secrets, and this undoubtedly makes Casey’s job that much harder. This is a remarkable series that I have been thoroughly enjoying. Although The Lighthouse Girls is the sixth book in a riveting series, it is a series that is written quite well to the point it can very easily be read as a standalone. However, for the sake of continuity and understanding a bit more about the dynamic between Casey and her team, reading the books in order might be very enjoyable. Don’t miss this thrilling book, one that will keep you turning pages late into the night.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
