Told from first person perspective (Kaitlyn) GIRL MISSING follows two pathways as LAPD Detective Kaitlyn Carr gets a frantic call from her mother that Kaitlyn’s thirteen year old sister Violet is missing. Although Big Bear Lake is out of Kaitlyn’s jurisdiction, our heroine begins an investigation of her own that pushes the buttons of some well connected people. Meanwhile, back in LA, Kaitlyn is called to investigate the murder of a young girl found hanging from a neighborhood tree but the investigation goes nowhere fast until a visit to the family home reveals some disturbing news about the recently deceased. GIRL MISSING is a fast paced, character driven and tragic story of mental illness, the power of social media, family, secrets, lies and loss. The premise is dramatic, sensitive and intense; the characters are energetic and emotional. We are introduced to FBI Agent Luke Galvinson, and the return of Kaitlyn’s now ex Thomas Abrams-there is a story regarding Thomas that has yet to be revealed. Www.thereadingcafe.com

    One down, two to go. Kaitlyn is a detective for the LAPD. She has just started work on the apparent hanging of a girl from a tree, when she finds out that her sister is missing. She returns home to help her mother cope with the crisis. She also continues to work on the case of the young girl who was hung. If I tell you anymore it will spoil the plot.

I liked the characters in this story. I liked how deftly the author handled the shift between the murder of the first girl, and the ongoing problems associated with the disappearance of her sister. This story also appears to be well researched. The first 95% of this book flows well, then suddenly at the end, WHAT HAPPENED? Sentences repeated themselves, and the story became choppy. That is the reason I gave this book 4 stars out of five stars. I will look forward to next months installment.

    It was predictable. I hated all of the references to societies most recent trends and apps. Everything from Instagram DMs to Etsy to TikTok. It was a lot. Having said that, I read it in a day, it was enjoyable from the standpoint of easy, mindless reading and for the heck of it you wanted to know what happened. Not because you felt invested.

    This is the 1st book in the Kaitlyn Carr series. I’m really enjoying the double mystery. I like the characters and the plot is very intriguing.

    Brilliant book This is my first book by this author and certainly won't be my last. Right from the beginning I was drawn into the book and just wanted to read on till I had finished. Only then to get that feeling when you enjoy reading a book so much that when you have finished you just want more. I certainly will be reading the rest in the series.

    The story was good, but not much excitement or substance. Character development was lacking and it was hard to really care. It was a surprise when the book ended with a cliffhanger, it seems to just be a way for the author to get you to buy the next book. If it was a better book I might read the next but I really don't care. The story was good, but not much excitement or substance. Character development was lacking and it was hard to really care.
