    This book is a one star from me. There is just sooo much wrong with it imo. The writing is shallow. No one talks the way they do in this dialogue. For example, the first dead child, Sophie, is called "the child" by her father. Eva Rae calls her own son "the boy". Her middle child says "they quarrel" and since they're American, it just doesn't sound right. It's so unnatural. Eva Rae is not believable at all as a former FBI agent.

She follows no protocols and frequently shows up where she has no business being. She jumps to conclusions (assaulting the man she believed hurt her friend.) That's not being a good protagonist. She's also literally one of the worst moms I've ever read about and yet every time there's a scene with her own mom she only complains about her being cold. I'd take cold over fucking clueless and annoying any day. Also, why on earth does she allow her 12 year old to speak to her the way she does? So disrespectful. I found myself on her ex husband's side. I'd be fed up with her as a partner too. The love interest is shallow. Her female friends are shallow. There are so many plot threads that don't really go anywhere. Don't waste your time.

    FABULOUS murder/mystery book! My first time with this author and I am really impressed. There are so many little subplots in this book, but it is a great series start up. An ex-FBI profiler whose husband walks out on her and her three children for a younger (of course) woman, gives up her job, moves back to be close to her parents, dealing with her kids acting out, her cold mother and a serial killer on the loose in the town she grew up in.

And, yet, the author does a spectacular job of keeping everything straight and working in the story while the lead character tries to, on the sly, figure out who the killer of these children is. Of course, the clock is ticking all the time. And, I never once saw that ending coming. As they say, you never really know a person. It is a great book and I can't wait for the next one to come out.

    This was a super quick and enjoyable read. I enjoyed all of the different elements the author entertwined within this story. It definitely made it a more complex book to read. The topics of family was a big part of this book and I definitely enjoyed reading about those aspects. As far as the main plot goes, I did find it to be very predictable, so the level of anticipation and mystery did lack a little for me but despite that, I still thoroughly enjoyed this book.

I did also like the cute, all be very predictable, romance thrown in there between an old flame. Overall, I think this book is good for anyone looking to jump into the crime genre. Although it isn’t to most well done, jaw dropping, shocking crime story, it was still very enjoyable.

She has three children and the Dad didn't work and stayed home with them and did everything for them. The kids are pretty brutal as their Mom tried to adjust to being a full time Mom. Back to The missing girl scout. The girl turns up in a sleeping bag dismembered and the search begins. Another little girl is kidnapped, and two boys. I loved the little girl Maddie who was so brave. Eva Rae also returns to her high school sweetheart, Matt and I think they will end up together. Her former husband is a total douche canoe!!

    The only good thing is it was free 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 couldn't finish this. I got only about 40% into it then I had to stop. This woman is the worst mother in the annals of fiction. She's also the worst FBI agent ever. I don't know what was in store for her in the rest of the book but if it was bad, she deserved it. Also, the writing style was terrible, as was the editing.

    Maybe I'm not being fair because I didn't finish this book, but I could find not much to like about it after the first couple chapters. I really thought in the beginning of the book that it was going to be a good read, but the more I read, the more I really disliked the main character. First of all, she is not even middle aged yet but has reached such a high pinnacle in her law enforcement career that she is revered, an author and one able to step back from the lofty career in the FBI.

First of all, she is not even middle aged yet but has reached such a high pinnacle in her law enforcement career that she is revered, an author and one able to step back from the lofty career in the FBI. I'm sorry, that doesn't happen in a scant ten or fifteen years. She is a woman who apparently had children, left those children to her husband to raise and then when he walks out on her, she begins to rely on her older daughters to become the mother to her younger child. Then, what mother would leave their obviously hyperactive child alone in a van while she goes into a crime scene, where she has absolutely no business being; talk about contaminating a crime scene. Maybe I've missed the whole premise of this book, but I could find nothing to like about a scatter-brained, irresponsible woman and the murder and kidnapping of children.

    Just OK 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 Just OK This is an easy read and moved at a fast clip.

Another time she is upset about a guy beating a woman and she runs right over to his house and breaks his nose, again with no true investigation. In the end it is Okay , lack of details bugs me and the ending is really unbelievable.

    This first book of the series was dramatic as Eva Rae, a retired FBI agent, became involved in a case of a murdered child. Throughout the story, flashbacks were given concerning Eva Rae's childhood as well as the killer's which made the story easier to understand. It seemed Eva's adult life was in turmoil due to her recent separation and trying to keep up with her kids schedules. There were also content and secrets revealed that made the title come to life.

    Eva Rae returns to her hometown as an ex-FBI profiler. She has promised her children she is done with police work, but when one child is found dead and another is kidnapped she can't help but get involved. Matt Miller, the local law enforcement asked for her help. He is also an ex-flame of hers. The more they investigate, the more dangerous it becomes, especially for those Eva hold near and dear. Can they stop this person before it is too late? You will need to read the book to find out.

    This book has such good reviews, but I was disappointed. Everything happened so quickly; no real character development. Just a little too simple, rushing to get to the end result. No more books by Willow Rose for me.

    I could only read about the first two chapters. I stopped reading after the male cop "Bit his lip", yeah, if I had to read about someone biting their lip or their heart racing and tears welling one more damn time.....I just couldn't do it. Very juvenile to me and not so great writing.

    I really don't like leaving one star reviews. Means I didn't like a book I thought would be excellent because of all the fabulous ratings. Anyway, huge big sigh. I was looking forward to getting my teeth stuck in a good thriller/murder/suspense mystery today. ☹ 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 on. In fact, I love KISS. (Keep It Stupid Simple). In this case, I fail to understand all the 5 star reviews. There are mix-ups in past and present tense and this book needs further editing. Perhaps I'm too picky...? It was a choppy ride, rather than a smooth one. I didn't like Eva at all. She went jogging in the middle of the night after a bad dream, leaving the children at home by themselves. As you do... After she woke, she drove for coffee - with her youngest boy in the car - because she couldn't leave him at home as the other kids were asleep. Seriously? Ever heard of a kitchen and instant coffee? Then, there was the sobbing from the hero (a seasoned cop) and the touching of an obvious crime scene. Sorry, I couldn't continue after that. I do stress:- this is my opinion and you may love this book, so don't let my review put you off. I do have a couple more of this author's books on my kindle, so I will give them a go.

    Women’s fiction with a good mystery. Not a police procedural. A serial child kidnapper-murder mystery is interwoven with women’s fiction featuring a storyline about dealing with “life issues.” Eva Rae Thomas, an ex-FBI profiler, struggles with emotional issues and family problems after her stay-at-home husband leaves her and their three children.

Not a police procedural. A serial child kidnapper-murder mystery is interwoven with women’s fiction featuring a storyline about dealing with “life issues.” Eva Rae Thomas, an ex-FBI profiler, struggles with emotional issues and family problems after her stay-at-home husband leaves her and their three children. She moves to her hometown of Boca Raton to be a single mother and to learn how to raise 14 yo Olivia, 12 yo Christine, and 6 yo Alex. Her parents (especially her mother who’s always been cold towards Eva) re-enter her life, as do childhood friends with their own problems. Eva also noses into a child kidnapping-murder case that her once-boyfriend—now a police detective—is investigating. Eva is an ex-FBI agent, so some of her actions were atypical. It was unlikely that she’d convince a detective to pursue a suspect, when she only had very circumstantial evidence. She moved from DC to Boca for her kids, so she would stop working long hours for her kids. But she submerges herself in the murder and doesn’t concentrate on parenting. She forgets after-school and/or sports events that are important to her children. I found it hard to believe Eva didn’t have a smartphone calendar or a paper agenda/planner. How’d she survive as an FBI agent? This author often conceals information about her culprits, but in this book, she drops a huge clue to killer’s identity. As in many recent serial killer books, cliched flashbacks to the murderer’s horrible childhood are overdone. The killer has POV sections, but I missed learning about the inciting incident and about state of mind. This is a readable book, so I will seek out more of this new series. However, I hope the author gets a copy editor to trim wordiness and to advise about word choices during POV shifts. It’s probably just OCD-me, but I had to reread sentences at times, because I was mentally editing. I am in the minority of reviewers, so do take my review with a teaspoon of salt. Or three. This 3 star read for me might be a 5 star for you.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was very good, lots of mystery and suspense. 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.
