The Angel Creek Girls: A totally addictive crime thriller packed full of suspense (Detective Kay Sharp Book 3) Kindle Edition
9 HOURS AGO: In a sleepy mountain town, widow Cheryl Coleman stares anxiously out of her kitchen window while a storm rages outside. When the knock comes, she glances back at her daughters before opening the door with trembling hands…
NOW: Detective Kay Sharp vows to get to the bottom of a heartbreaking murder that has rocked Mount Chester. A single mother has been brutally killed in front of her three daughters. The youngest, three-year-old Erin, is lying inches from the body, her pigtails loose, her face tear-stained. Eight-year-old Heather is discovered hiding under her bed. Sixteen-year-old Julie is nowhere to be found.
The first twenty-four hours are critical in child abductions, and the girls are the key to saving their missing sister. But Heather is in shock, unable to communicate, and all tiny Erin can say is “A monster came”. When Kay finds three suitcases lined up in the hallway, it’s clear that the family were about to run away. But why? And who were they trying to escape?
Thanks to her own past, Kay knows all about traumatic childhoods shrouded in tragedy, and she works around the clock to get justice for the orphaned girls. Turning the town upside down, she uncovers the shocking truth about their peaceful community: it’s home to a serial killer who preys on helpless girls. Faced with the most twisted case of her career, can she catch the monster before another innocent life is lost?
Think you know the meaning of gripping? Think again! Leslie Wolfe takes gripping to a whole new level. Fans of Lisa Regan, Robert Dugoni and Kendra Elliot will be addicted to this twist-filled page-turner.

Leslie Wolfe seems to write so quickly! I read the first book in this series in February (this year) and already I’ve just read the third - I don’t know what happened to number 2. Anyway, the book starts with a rather confronting scene where a widowed mother is killed trying to protect her eldest daughter, 16 year old Julie, from being taken. The two younger girls - 8 year old Heather and 4 year old Erin are hiding upstairs but hear all of this being played out in the kitchen downstairs.
Early the next morning a neighbour calls it in. Detectives Kay Sharp and Elliot Young catch the case. It is very confronting, little Erin is sitting in her mother’s blood cradling her. The neighbours that they interview seem a little off, the old woman seemed to think it was all pre-ordained and the call of the spirit of the earth to some such. But when somewhat distant relatives finally show up to claim the two young daughters of Cheryl they, too, seem a little off! The detectives are even wondering if some sort of cult is involved but Kay, who is a former FBI profiler, can’t quite pin down a firm profile for this perp.
As the days pass suspicion grows that this is all somehow tied up with one particular family - the Montgomerys. And the window for finding Julie alive closes inexorably. This was a tautly plotted story with some interesting twists, nothing terribly original but it was an engaging read nonetheless. Kay was a wonderful advocate for the two traumatised younger children and managed to coax a little light on what transpired from Heather. We also got a few chapters from the POV of the abductor who appeared to be quite delusional. Overall I enjoyed it and will be looking for the next book soon. I do wonder though why authors feel the need to always include the ubiquitous love interest. I guess we’re aiming for romantic suspense although the story would have worked just as well without the romance, or the hope thereof. Thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for and advance copy of the book which I have reviewed voluntarily and honestly.
Kay is a detective, trying to solve the baffling case of Cheryl Coleman's death and the abduction of her daughter Julie. She is trying to tease the story out of the two younger children, who are, naturally enough, completely traumatised by what has happened at their home. So many twists and turns, my heart was in my mouth more than once.
This was a really solid book and I thoroughly enjoyed it (although some of the characters gave me the creeps - job done, author!). Kay was a thorough professional; brave, hard-working and smart, but she was also compassionate and I think it was the combination of these things which endeared her to me. The bond she has with her work partner, Elliott, was also very sweet and I thought he was a lovely fella as well.
The whole story worked, as chilling as the premise of this book was.
Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
4.5 stars from me.
Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture.
