'OMG what can I say? This is the first book I have read by Carol Wyer and I find it very hard to believe that this is her first thriller. I was totally hooked from the first page and the suspense kept delivering all the way through the book right to the last page with several red herrings to keep the reader guessing. This is a very special book that has all the makings of a bestseller and I eagerly await the next in the series.' All Things Books

Little Girl Lost
A very easy read with twists and turns.
5* because it’s well written
Normally I would knock a star or two off if a load of unnecessary writing gimmicks are used but in this case I can’t.
It did annoy me at times when it felt like I was reading more than one book at the same time. It jumped about between different characters and different eras.Parts are written in the first person, in the present tense and in a different font to most of the book which is third person, past tense. It annoyed me that almost all of the present tense sections were set in the past, some parts decades earlier. Why was this done? It seemed absurd.
The plot was quite good even though much of it was guessable and we knew for certain what was happening long before the police did. I felt that certain things that happened, particularly towards the end, were simply rehashes of other books I have read. There were no real surprises or twists, nothing I haven’t come across before.
I’m now questioning why I have given 5*... but I did enjoy it! See what you think, give it a try!
Little Girl Lost
