As another c...more
Eva Rae is not believable at all as a former FBI agent. She follows no protocols and frequently shows up where she has no bu ...more
This book was poorly written, with no likeable characters. Eva, for supposedly being an experienced former FBI agent, and Matt, supposedly a somewhat experienced police officer were neither very bright. And Eva is a terrible mother besides. Don't waste your time on it.
I thoroughly enjoyed the writing style and the fast paced nature of this story, but it was honestly just all over the place. So many characters with so little actual character development was so confusing. I’m an avid thriller/crime/mystery reader and I’m sad to say this was a busy. Slow down a bit, let us get to know the characters in the story. Kidnapping after kidnapping and murder after murder, and then it turns out to be her dad?! I couldn’t even keep straight who was be ...more
This is an easy read and moved at a fast clip. I felt the writing was good, but the plot not so much. Several sort of sub plots attached to the main plot and characters contribute to the fast paced action. However some of the story line is just not believable and details are not really dealt with well. Our heroine is former FBI, yet pulls stuff no trained officer would do.
Local force asks for her "help" on a case, but no mention of her appointment as the"posse" or consultant. Then she pi ...more
Eva Ray is the worst mother ever, a terrible FBI agent, every man is gaslighting and has nothing to do with their kids at all (hi, missing your child for 2 months and not noticing) and American cops shoot at running mothers holding kids and the mother goes to jail, not the cop.
This book is terribly written, unbelievable, and if a true portrait of what families are like that side of the pond, horrific.
If you've read the synopsis, you know there are children coming up missing and retired FBI agent steps in to try to help local law enforcement find the killer.
I have to say, with kids going missing, you would think the mothers in this story would be vigilant with watching their children. That's not the case. Sophie, who is the first missing child has been being molested. Her mom Julie knows about it, but continues to allow it and not press charges on the molester simply because she wa ...more
Firstly this book was very simply written, which in itself isn't bad. It can be pretty liberating not to think too hard when reading - just immerse yourself into the plot and start enjoying the story and the rollercoaster ride it sends you ...more

This is the first book in the Eva Rae Thomas mystery series by Willow Rose.
I am glad I started this series with book one since the story moves forward in time from book to book and this particular series makes more sense when you read it in order.
Eva Rae is a compelling main character. She is reeling from her husband who has left her for a younger woman and in charge of three young children. She gave up her FBI job in order to take care of her kids but as a popular profiler, her skills ar ...more
The only problem I had was the villain's. like Dawn's situation, her abuser was a bit bazaar but ok, I went on, but when it came to catching the killer, a bit more bazaar. Didn't quite get it.
Still I liked the way it flowed just don't trust anyone over 60 in Florida.
