It was just another day for Lara & her daughter Ava except everything will change for them both. Lara thought that Ava had caught the school bus but when she gets to the school with the cupcakes she finds out that Ava isn’t there. The police are called and Det Ellie Reeves & Special Agent Derrick Fox are on the case. How did Ava just disappear? Did her father take her away with him on holiday? As things aren’t going well between Lara & Jasper but would have done this to hurt her? Kaylee is so happy to get someone else to play with and she knows that Ava is sad now but things will get better as she was also sad in the beginning. She just hopes that she doesn’t get sick like Becky as she doesn’t like being alone. While the police are following up on leads they come to realise that Ava could have been stolen to sell on the black market and they have no choice but to go undercover to find out the truth. But they don’t find Ava so who has her? Will they be able to find her before it is too late? Little do they realise that there are more than one little girl missing and that their families have never given up looking for their missing girls. Will they be able to provide the police with info that could help find the girls? A great reading full of twists & turns. Nothing is as it seems. I was lucky enough to receive a copy via Netgalley & the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
Yet another great book in this amazing series. I loved all the different narratives! It wasn’t as violent as the previous books, but it certainly was just as thrilling. I loved everything about it. Rita Herron is definitely a great writer, and I will be reading more of her books in the future.
Stolen Angels – Rita Herron Crooked Creek Detective Ellie Reeves is hopeful for a quiet holiday season as she and FBI Special Agent Derrick Fox head to attend the town Christmas pageant. Fresh off some stressful cases, along with some painful revelations in her personal life, she’s hoping for the time to sort things out, and bridge the divide she’s created with her parents after learning she was adopted and rescuing her birth mother from imprisonment. But, it feels like the quiet before a storm, and Ellie is inexplicably on edge. Five-year-old Ava Truman can’t contain her excitement for the school party that’s planned for today. With cupcakes in the oven along with a raging migraine, her mother Lara watches her only daughter race to catch the school bus, waves as the bus goes by and heads for a short nap, before delivering the cupcakes to school. Upon her arrival to Ava’s classroom, she learns that Ava never arrived to school, nor was she seen at the bus stop that morning. As Ellie and her team assemble to begin gathering information, Ellie learns that the family is going through a divorce and that Lara’s husband wants partial custody, frequently accusing Lara of not caring for her daughter. Could this be a custodial kidnapping? Shortly thereafter, items of young Ava are found nearby, including her backpack, and a stuffed bunny that she never allowed out of her sight. As the investigation deepens, Lara’s husband surfaces and denies knowledge of Ava’s disappearance, but some digging into his new girlfriend’s life has detectives on high alert. A records search for similar cases draws some strange parallels, and the discovery of another missing child who vanished a year ago to the day of Ava’s disappearance, whom has never been found. Another great read in the Ellie Reeves series, and another book that you shouldn’t start unless you’ve got some time set aside, because it will be THAT hard to put down. Great as a standalone or in series order – if you love a suspenseful who-dun-it, add Rita Herron & Detective Ellie Reeves to your “must read” list!
