Elena Reviews: Vanishing Girls {Detective Josie Quinn #1} By Lisa Regan

{Detective Josie Quinn #1}

Author: Lisa Regan

Publication Date: January 17th, 2018

Genres: Mystery, Thriller, Crime
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.

Hello guys and welcome to the first part of February's most anticipated book releases! There are so many wonderful books coming out during next month so, three posts are needed in order to fit as many of them as possible! Make sure to let me know in the comments which books you're most excited for because I've probably missed some!

I'm feeling extremely overwhelmed while putting these posts together, by the way! There are just so many books coming out, not only during February but, throughout the whole year that, I'm just torn over which ones to actually read and which ones to leave behind. Reading all of them is realistically impossible but, a person can definitely dream about reading every single book that comes out, right? Hopefully, I'll be able to get through at least some of these!

Elena Reviews: Clutch By C.M. West

Title: Clutch

Author: C.M. West

Publication Date: November 2017

Genres: New Adult, Romance
Clutch – verb: to grasp and hold tightly; to seize; snatch.

Flighty. Stupid. That’s what my sisters think of me. 

I’m tired of being misunderstood.

With a suitcase in hand and the ocean as my beacon, I’m charting my own path. 

Yet, barely a day on the road, I almost crash and burn.

Running into Silas Palmer, a sexy-as-sin rock star, changes my life. 

Silas makes me feel … Exceptional. Aimless. 

He’s always known his course.

And even now, when he’s abandoning fame and fortune, he knows what he wants.


But life is never that simple.
