Publication Day|The Lost Girls|Helen Pryke plus #bookreview

I am so pleased to share with you all this new release. The happiest of publication days to Helen Pryke, Author. From the author of The Innocenti Saga, comes a new novel and a new genre. The Lost Girls is a suspense boarding on pyschological. I was fortunate enough to beta read this and i can tell you it is fantastic. I love an author who is diverse and doesnt stick to one genre, and it shows great skill to be able to write in a genre in which they aren’t familiar.

Four years ago, two teenage girls were abducted. Four years ago, a ten-year-old boy was murdered. Both cases are still unsolved. Desperate to find their sisters, Michael and Chloe beg investigative journalist Maggie Dupont to help them. What starts as a simple investigation soon turns into a frantic race against time as they realise that the kidnapper took the girls to replace his sisters. The sisters who died sixteen years earlier. Forced to face traumatic events from the past, Maggie finds herself in the middle of a nightmare that’s about to get worse…

My Review *****/5 stars I was very excited to read this and i wasn’t disappointed. The synopsis was enough for me to instantly want to read it. For an author who has never written in this genre before, the writing is exceptional. A well rounded and balanced story. The character development is smooth and the dialogue between characters is effortless. Gritty, tense and lives up to the genre, mixed with a touch of psychological thriller. A thoroughly enjoyable book that will make you nervous, have you biting your nails and will shock you. A book not to be missed.
