Blog Tour – ‘Little Girl Lost’ by Carol Wyer
‘Little Girl Lost’ was published by Bookouture on the 19th January. It is the first book in the DI Robyn Carter series. I am thrilled to be taking part in this blog tour for which I am reviewing the book. I received my copy from NetGalley.
Abigail appears to have the perfect life. She has it all; a doting husband and an adorable baby daughter. But is everything as it seems? Someone knows about her past and they won’t rest until the truth is told.
When baby Izzy is kidnapped from a car park, Detective Robyn Carter takes on the case. Her instincts tell her that there is a connection between Izzy’s abduction and two murders she is currently investigating. There is a serial killer at large and Robyn needs to find him or her before it’s too late.
Carol Wyer has written several humorous books and has now turned to crime. It seems she has found her dark side and I have to say I’m actually really impressed. I just loved Carol’s style of writing. There were so many twists and turns and some real shockers too. As I got more into the story I found myself getting totally hooked.
It took me a while to work out how all the characters were connected. Abigail was getting threatening messages and I spent ages trying to work out who was responsible for them and the murders. I ended up suspecting just about everyone at one point.
I really admired Robyn Carter. She had had a really tough time of things and needed to get back into a proper routine. I bet she never thought she would be taking on such a grisly case. Time was running out fast but Robyn was sure to be able to solve it. She had PC Mitz Patel and another officer helping her. I liked Mitz and thought he was rather sweet.
‘Little Girl Lost’ is a must read for fans of crime. I am really looking forward to DI Robyn Carter’s next case.
I give this book 5 out of 5.

Thank you so much for this superb review. I was anxious when I changed genre and you and others have helped, supported and calmed those pesky inner voices that said I should stick to comedy. X
And thank you for being part of the LITTLE GIRL LOST tour!
