Josie flinches as she takes in the faded blue sports jacket wrapped around the girl they just pulled from the water. Josie knew someone who’d once owned that jacket. He had died in her arms five years ago.
Heavy rain pours on the small town of Denton causing the riverbanks to break and the body of a young girl to float quietly to the surface. With no crime scene to examine, the odds are against Detective Josie Quinn and her team. Mercifully, the victim’s body is perfectly preserved, right down to the baseball patch on the jacket she was wearing. Josie can’t hide her devastation—her dead ex-husband, Ray, owned one just like it.
Following the trail back to her high school, Josie identifies the girl as Beverly Urban, a troubled student rumored to have been dating Ray before she left town for good. It looks like a tragic accident until the autopsy reveals a bullet in her head and the heart-breaking secret she was keeping.
Josie visits the salon where Beverly’s mother used to work, believing she was at the heart of a terrible scandal around the time her daughter’s life was taken. With the Denton wives remaining tight-lipped, Josie’s only hope is a secret meet-up with a terrified woman willing to talk. But she is murdered moments before giving Josie crucial information. It’s clear that someone is prepared to keep on killing to stop the truth from getting out.
Digging deep into memories of her own past with Ray is the only advantage Josie has on this twisted killer… but at what cost?
Another jaw-dropping crime thriller from an Amazon, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author that will have you absolutely gripped from page one. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine.
I have to be completely honest right off the bat and admit that this is the first book in the Josie Quinn series I have read! I can hear the fans screaming at me “seriously!” and “how could you not have read any before?” And I really don’t have a better answer other than Lisa had only come through on my radar since stating my book blog in 2019.
So why jump on board now you may ask? The answer, I have read so many great things about these books and what a fantastic author Lisa is, that I decided to just bite the bullet and go for it. You would think that someone that is starting book 9 in such an established series would have absolutely no hope in following along right? Wrong! I had no trouble at all. Phew!
Lisa has put together a thrilling plot that sees the body of a young girl float to the surface from under a house where the riverbank has broken due to heavy rains. When reading this, I couldn’t help but refer it to my all time favourite show, Twin Peaks and its hook “She’s Dead, Wrapped in Plastic” although in this case “Wrapped in a Tarp! The plot thickens when the girl is pulled from the water and is wearing a jacket like the one Josie’s dead husband, Ray, owned…
What I have taken from this story is that Lisa puts Josie through the wringer a lot and really puts her resolve to the test! She is such a formidable character and I completely resonated her. She is one bad you know what and I look forward to going back to the previous books when I can and get to know her more. It wasn’t hard for me to see that she is a strong protagonist and is the perfect lead in the series.
I loved Lisa’s writing and how she was able to hook me in to the story instantly. There was no time to settle in and get comfortable as it moved at high speed, barely slowing down until the final page. I enjoyed the twists and turns and the curve balls thrown in that kept me off the track until Lisa was good and ready to reveal all, which is done perfectly.
Save Her Soul is a fast paced gripping crime thriller, that will have you on the edge of your seat furiously flicking through the pages. For a series to be at its 9th book means that Lisa is still on a winner here and although I have a bit to catch up on, she most certainly has a new fan in me. It was an absolute pleasure to read and review Save Her Soul which I highly recommend.
