BLOG TOUR - Lost Little Angels


She wakes suddenly, realizing with a panic that her darling baby daughter should have woken long before now. Racing to the pink-colored nursery, she lets out a deep cry as she opens the door. The crib is empty. Her little girl has vanished.

It’s after midnight when
 Detective Eve Bennet receives a distraught phone call from an unknown number. The voice at the other end begs her not to hang up—a baby has gone missing. But what the caller says next makes Eve’s heart race. “She isn’t the first. There are many, many more.”

Rushing to the missing girl’s home, Eve finds the house empty, and when she knocks on their neighbors’ doors, not a single person answers. Whoever reported the missing baby doesn’t want to be found…

Secrets are held tight in the small town of Hilldale and as an outsider, Eve knows that the only way to uncover the truth is to persuade someone to talk. She finally has a breakthrough when a young wife goes against her husband’s wishes and tells Eve it’s not just babies being taken—mothers are disappearing too.

The woman leaves Eve a hand drawn map leading her to an isolated trailer park. What she finds there shocks her to her core. But she hardly has time to think before she notices a lone figure watching her every move. She’s not alone.

Can Eve save herself in time to finally unmask the truth before more innocent children disappear forever?

Fans of Melinda Leigh, Kendra Elliot and Lisa Regan won’t be able to put down this utterly gripping crime thriller from a USA Today bestselling author.

Detective Eve Bennet’s newest case is that of a missing baby. But, it is far more than that. This case really hits close to home for Eve, bringing her back in contact with a fundamentalist group that has ties with her disturbing past. As unpleasant as it is, Eve must deal with her evil stepbrother Aaron, and she definitely meets with roadblocks as she delves deeper into the case of the missing baby. 

Eve’s mother had escaped the polygamist group when she was a child and now she and her team have to delve deeply if they are to find out what happened to the missing baby. Getting people to talk is not easy. But Eve soldiers on. Although reminded of the dangers she faced in a previous investigation, including the involvement of her own family members, Eve never gives up. 

With tension set high right from the very start, this second book in the Eve Bennet story is just as good as the first, Only Girl Alive. Now I am more than eager to see what Eve will face next, and what will happen with her stepbrother Aaron. 

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


Holly Roberts began writing to alleviate stress in her day job, that of a homicide and sex crimes detective. Romance was her go to genre because she required a happy ending. She also touched on cozy mysteries and added six books to her forty book romance repertoire. Now that she’s retired and her mind at peace, she decided to delve into crime thrillers using her background and thirst for research to write the Eve Bennet series.

Holly has two movie/television options under her belt for her amazing life story. Part of the reason is Holly became a police officer at age 45 and led two high profile cases, one involving a serial killer. Now she enjoys the excitement of writing about crime while sitting at home with her two dogs, laptop, and a cup of hot tea close by.
