Cover Reveal – ‘Vanishing Girls’ by Lisa Regan

I am absolutely thrilled to be taking part in the cover reveal for ‘Vanishing Girls’ by Lisa Regan which is being published as an eBook by Bookouture on the 17th January 2018.  I fell in love with this cover the moment I saw it and I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that I think it’s stunning.

Here’s what ‘Vanishing Girls’ is about.

 

Book Blurb

She was close enough to see that the girl had written a word on the wall in bright, warm red blood. Not a word, actually. A name…

Everyone in the small American town of Denton is searching for Isabelle Coleman, a missing seventeen-year-old girl. All they’ve found so far is her phone and another girl they didn’t even know was missing.

Mute and completely unresponsive to the world around her, it’s clear this mysterious girl has been damaged beyond repair. All Detective Josie Quinn can get from her is a name: Ramona.

Currently suspended from the force for misconduct, Josie takes matters into her own hands as the name leads her to evidence linking the two girls. She knows the race is on to find Isabelle alive, and she fears there may be others…  

The trail leads Josie to another victim, a girl who escaped but whose case was labelled a hoax by authorities. To catch this monster, Josie must confront her own nightmares and follow her instinct to the darkest of places. But can she make it out alive?

Fans of Angela Marsons, Helen Fields and Robert Dugoni will be utterly gripped and sleeping with the lights on once they discover the first in this unputdownable new crime thriller series.

Blog Tour – ‘No Bodies’ by Robert Crouch

‘No Bodies’ is the second book in the Kent Fisher series. It was published yesterday the 19th October 2017 in paperback and as an eBook. I am delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for Robert Crouch’s new book. I would like to thank both Caroline Vincent who has done a great job of organising this tour and Robert Crouch for my review copy of ‘No Bodies’.

Having recently solved a murder Kent Fisher has become something of a hero. So when Colonel Witherington seeks his help in finding his missing wife Kent isn’t too sure that he wants to get involved, especially as the police believe that she ran off with Colin Miller, a rather dubious caterer. Kent has also got problems of his own and it doesn’t look like things are about to get any easier for him.

When enquiries reveal that another woman has gone missing, Kent picks up a trail that went cold more than a year ago. However, he is struggling to find a connection between the two women and a third missing wife makes things even more confusing. Surely they can’t all of run away?

There could be a killer on the loose in Downland, but with no motive, connection or bodies, Kent may never uncover the truth.

I really enjoyed ‘No Accident’, so I couldn’t wait to read ‘No Bodies’. I love Robert Crouch’s style of writing and the humour. I was so looking forward to catching up with Kent Fisher and his beloved dog, Columbo.

Following on from the first book in the series Kent’s career is in jeopardy and he is awaiting the outcome. As well as working as an environmental health officer he also runs an animal sanctuary. With no salary coming in he wouldn’t be able to keep it open. You wouldn’t think that things could possibly get any worse for Kent would you, but they do. When a young girl ends up in hospital with an E. coli infection, fingers point at Kent. He could lose just about everything.

Although Kent didn’t really want to get involved in the search for the Colonel’s missing wife, he soon became intrigued and started investigating with the help of his colleague, Gemma. A few leads led to a shocking discovery for Kent and one that was a little too close to home. I personally thought that this was quite a complicated case. The author did a good job of keeping me guessing as to who the murderer was.

I loved reading about Colonel Witherington’s house and I almost felt as if I was being given a guided tour. It sounded very nice, though the stuffed animals put me off a bit. I also liked the various references to freezers throughout the story.

‘No Bodies’ is an exciting and fast-paced read with a number of twists and turns. I really hope there are more books in this series to come. Robert Crouch is fast becoming a favourite author.

I give this book 5 out of 5.
