This book is the reason I need an extra shot of espresso in my coffee this morning. I may have stayed up until 2:00 a.m. last night (or technically this morning) reading the last 13% of the book. I thought, 13% left I can finish that in thirty minutes…um, I grossly underestimated how much time it takes me to read 13% - it was more like 1.5 hours or something like that: I obviously lost track of time. Plus the ending was where most of the action was and I could not go to sleep half way through it.

Two Girls Down by Louisa Luna tells the story of the Brandt sisters, ages 10 and 8 whom are abducted from a parking lot while their single mother, Jamie, ran into a store to quickly pick something up. The understaffed local police are working the case, but the family hires the services of a successful private investigator, Alex Vega, in hopes she will find the girls quickly. Vega struggles getting the police to cooperate/work with her so she enlists the services of a retired police officer, Max Caplan, whose own relationship with the police department is less than stellar.

As time is ticking the likelihood of finding the girls and finding them alive is narrower and narrower. It is a wild ride and moves rather quickly. You will also enjoy the chemistry between Vega and Cap, although it is not a love story to boot, the focus is on finding the Brandt girls and doing that quickly.

If you enjoy thriller/suspense books as much as I do, Two Girls Down is a worthwhile read. It may not have been 100% perfect, but I clearly needed to know what happened and those types of books regardless of how you feel about the ending deserve 4 stars, in my opinion.
