Publisher's Summary

Wanted: A picturesque new town, a fresh start, and a much-needed escape from the constant reminder that the world is still full of bad guys. 

For FBI agent Olivia Knight, that perfect place is Belle Grove, a charming small town in Northern Virginia, a place hidden by lush greenery and away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. This quaint town checked all of Olivia’s boxes, and it seemed to be the perfect place to give her the simple, quiet home life that she desperately craved. 

A home life away from the bureau, away from the sounds of sirens. And most importantly, away from the grim nature of her job. So, what sort of place does Olivia call home? Well, in a cozy cabin, nestled in the woods.

FBI agent Olivia Knight sat on her comfy chair, reading her favorite novel, escaping into a world that no longer exists. But in the dead of night, the darkness that she escaped from found its way right to her doorstep….

When Olivia finds a young girl that is malnourished and disheveled outside her home, she is thrown into a disturbing and puzzling case. In order to catch the culprit and find the missing children in her new hometown, Olivia must dive deep into the twisted mind of a deranged serial kidnapper and crack an almost impossible case. With no leads in sight, Olivia must rely on more than just her wit.

With the help of Brock, her new partner—a guy that, although competent, is the exact opposite of her in every way—she must act fast to catch the person terrorizing the once serene town. 

In Belle Grove, the truth is elusive, and the mysteries here have a way of remaining hidden. As more children go missing and the stakes to find the culprit grow higher than ever, Olivia Knight is about to find out what it really means to be the new girl in town.

good pace

reads somewhat like a harlequin romance, really not my thing, although my wife picked it and will probably enjoy it more

Love this author. I’m glad I found them.

I’m always hesitant when I try new authors. But in this case I was very satisfied with my choice. The storyline was very good, the narration was good and I’ve already downloaded the second book.

Kidnapping

I did like this book. Though I guess who the bad guy was early on. I’m not sure on the narrator though. I don’t like don’t like her 100% and feel she doesn’t match the main character’s voice as it should be. Other than that it was a good story.

Thrilling

I enjoyed listening to the first book in the Olivia Knight series. The authors kept you engaged throughout the book although I did peg the culprit before the reveal. It was simply written and easy to follow. Now on to the second book.

Painful

I feel like this book was written by a person who has done zero research into police work. It's not only unbelievable, but ridiculously so.
The main characters are supposed to be seasoned detectives ..or fbi agents, and yet the way they work, the way communicate makes them sound like teenagers playing detectives .

WORST BOOK I EVER FINISHED

Did I miss the book description. Was this a story for middle schoolers. Weak and obvious plot line. The protagonist sounded like a teenage girl pleading a case for a better grade from her teacher. This was due to both the anxiety filled narration and the trite dialogue. The ending was obvious with only a slight jog from the direct line from the opening paragraphs . I am afraid this author is not for me.

Cleaning behind the fridge would be better entertainment

This book is, perhaps, the worst book I’ve had the displeasure of listening to.
The narrator punctuates each sentence by shouting.
The storyline is so far fetched it’s unbearable. The characters are overly emotional and would be hard pressed having a career in feeding goldfish, let alone the FBI.
It is so hard to listen to. Absolutely cringeworthy.
I can only assume the publisher had a partial lobotomy prior to agreeing to publish it.
