Round and round she goes, blonde pigtails flying, her high-pitched giggle catching on the wind. But as the ride slows to a stop, her seat is suddenly empty. Little Lucy is gone…
When seven-year-old Lucy Ross is snatched from the carousel in Denton city park, Detective Josie Quinn joins the frantic search. She’s the one who finds Lucy’s sparkly butterfly backpack abandoned by the ticket booth, a note with a devastating message stuffed inside: answer your phone, or your sweet little darling will die…
The next day, Lucy’s parents are filled with hope when they pick up a call which they think is from their babysitter – but instead it’s a chilling male voice on the line. Josie races to the babysitter’s small apartment only to find her lifeless body in a tangle of sheets on her bed.
Josie is faced with the most high-stakes case of her career as each new phone call from someone connected to the family ends with the shocking discovery of another body. This twisted killer wants revenge, and he won’t stop until the Ross family are in pieces…
Something is telling Josie that Lucy’s parents aren’t giving her the whole truth, but digging deeper into their lives will force her to confront a life-changing secret of her own. Does Josie have what it takes to crack this case? She has no choice if she’s going to bring Lucy home alive…

OMG, what a great book this was. This was my first book by Lisa Regan and it definitely did not disappoint. This is book 6 of the Josie Quinn series but you are able to read it as a stand alone novel. Even though this is part of a series the author does a great job familiarizing the reader with parts of the back story and does not take away from the main story of the book. What is does make me want to do is read the whole series.
This book was about a missing child. She was taken right in front of her parents eyes. Where did she go? Were the parents to blame since they were both right there? Why were they so distracted that then didn’t notice their daughter was taken? These questions and many more are answered throughout the book.
I can’t say enough good things about this book. This author had me going on an emotional roller coaster throughout the whole book. I didn’t know what to expect as each chapter progressed. There were so many twists and turns. You didn’t know who to believe or what was coming next. There were so many lies and secrets you couldn’t keep up with all of them. The past always catches up with you no matter how much you try to run from it. The ending definitely through me for a loop. I would’ve never guessed it in a million years. Who did it was such a shocking twist. All of this made me fall in love with this author and I just can’t get enough of her books.
Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
