Excitement and a Book Review (Little Girl Lost)

Before I get to the book review, I have to share that MG and I officially closed on our house yesterday afternoon!!!!
Although we won't move for another month (which is a blessing right now!), it's really exciting to actually own our first home together, as husband and wife! Woohooo!!!

Ok, now back to business....

This is another book that I read on our honeymoon and I whizzed through it. We're talking, I started and finished it within 24 hours.
The book was called Little Girl Lost by Brian McGilloway (another one that was $.99 on Amazon for the Kindle)
{via}
Here's the Amazon.com summary:

Midwinter. A child is found wandering through the snowy woods, her hands covered in someone else's blood. And she cannot—or will not—speak, not even to share her name.
Who is this little girl lost? The only adult she seems to trust is the young officer who found her, Detective Lucy Black. Before long, Lucy manages to connect her case to that of a missing teenager, the kidnapped daughter of a local real estate tycoon. As the investigation twists and turns, Lucy is forced to question not only a range of dangerous suspects, but also everything she thought she knew about her own past.

I picked this one because the other 3 books I had on my Kindle were love stories and since I'd just finished Must Love Otters, I wanted something a little different. I was really intrigued by the "mystery" component to the book and underlying story which got me hooked instantly. During the course of the book, several different stories and events unfold into a really engrossing story. It's really interesting to see how it all pieces together and connects in the end. Apparently this book is part of a series (Lucy Black Thrillers), and I have a feeling I'll be checking out some of the other ones after reading this book.

I really recommend this one. I read it super quick and was into it the entire time that I was reading it. And, for 99 cents, what's there to lose?

Don't forget to check out my Book Reviews tab at the top of the page for more recommendations (or warnings!) 

Happy May!!!
