Book Review: The Stolen Girls by Patricia Gibney

May 29, 2019 Book review 4 ★★★★½

The Stolen Girls by Patricia Gibney is book 2 of the brilliant Lottie Parker series. One thing you have to know is that I’m in LOVE with this series. I’ve been reading them back to back in audiobook format, and I’m quite possible obsessed. One night I even found myself thinking what would Lottie Parker do! So if you are looking for a dark, disturbing and very addictive series to add to your reading life, then I highly recommend this series.

FYI I do recommend reading them in order.

The young woman standing on Lottie’s step was a stranger. She was clutching the hand of a young boy. ‘Help me,’ she said to Lottie. ‘Please help me.’
One Monday morning, the body of a young pregnant woman is found. The same day, a mother and her son visit the house of Detective Lottie Parker, begging for help to find a lost friend.
Could this be the same girl? 
When another victim is discovered by the same man, with the murder bearing all the same hallmarks as the first, Lottie needs to work fast to discover how else the two were linked. Then two more girls go missing.
Detective Lottie Parker is a woman on the edge, haunted by her tragic past and struggling to keep her family together through difficult times. Can she fight her own demons and catch the killer before he claims another victim?

5 thoughts On The Stolen Girls by Patricia Gibney

  • Detective Kirby was a creep in this one. He needs to work very very hard to redeem himself in my eyes.
  • Lottie and Boyd are my ultimate will they/won’t they couple. I’m dying for them to get their act together. But I’m a sucker for the tension between them too.
  • I love Lottie but she’s a nightmare of a boss and won’t be winning mother of the year anytime soon. I don’t care, her flaws make her more human and her heart is always in the right place.
  • The mystery is very complex. I had to read the ending twice to get all the characters and main players straight. Then I drew a family tree to visually see it all too.
  • This series is the BOMB! I read them out of order, and I’m on book 5 now, and feeling a bit sad that I’ve only one full book left to read. Thankfully book 7 is on the way later this year.

Who should read The Stolen Girls by Patricia Gibney

I’d HIGHLY recommend this series to you, (and urge you to run and get your hands on it asap), if you love Irish settings, dark topics, complex mysteries, and a page turner that you won’t want to put down. Fans of authors such as Liz Nugent, Shalini Boland and Jo Spain should also enjoy.

About Patricia Gibney

Patricia is the million-copy bestselling author of the DI Lottie Parker series. She yearned to be a writer after reading Enid Blyton and Carolyn Keene and even wanted to be Nancy Drew when she grew up. She has now grown up (she thinks) but the closest she’s come to Nancy Drew is writing crime! In 2009, after her husband died, she retired from her job and started writing seriously. Fascinated by people and their quirky characteristics, she always carries a notebook to scribble down observations. Patricia also loves to paint in watercolour and lives in the Irish midlands with her children.
