About this ebook

The girl’s prom dress, the color of champagne, shimmers in the dying light. A corsage of wilting pink sweetheart roses decorates her wrist. She is perfectly still, lying on the ground like a delicate china doll, trapped forever in a sleep from which she will never wake…


When a call comes in about a young girl found dead at a high school prom—her life drained away from a fatal stab wound—Detective Josie Quinn drops everything to attend the scene. Taking in the girl’s neatly braided hair, Josie feels a flicker of recognition. But no one comes forward to identify this innocent child, murdered on what should have been the happiest night of her life.  


Trawling missing persons files, Josie realizes where she has seen the girl before. Gemma Farmer disappeared a few months ago, shattering her family. But why would her body appear now, on her sixteenth birthday? Josie’s only clue is the five neat little cuts on Gemma’s pale arm. Days later, another missing girl shows up, tucked neatly into her bed on the morning of her birthday, her favourite teddy beside her, her skin as cold as ice—and the autopsy reveals scars on her arm matching Gemma’s.


Her head spinning, Josie fears the marks are a serial killer’s twisted way of counting his victims. But where are the other girls he’s killed, and how many more could follow? The case takes a terrifying turn when a local teen goes missing just days before she turns sixteen.


Clock ticking, Josie turns the town upside down in search of answers. But when her own chief comes forward with a missing piece in this devastating puzzle spanning decades, will it be enough to get inside the mind of the most unexpected and elusive killer she has ever encountered, or will another precious life be taken?


An absolutely heart-stopping and totally unputdownable crime thriller from an Amazon, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author. You will be up all night biting your nails and turning pages! Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine.

My Review: Loved, loved, and more loved!!!!! As you can see I really loved this book. This author sure knows how to write a sick twisted murder book but in such a good way. I couldn’t put it down for the life of me. I raced through each chapter wanting more and more until I came to that shocking ending. I want to start off by saying that I really love the way that all these detectives come together to solve a crime. Each one of them brings something unique to the table to get the job done. They have a chemistry not often found in real life and it really shows as this series progresses. I also want to say that to get the maximum benefit out of this series I would start from the very first book. I have read this series out of order and have had no problems following the story or the characters but I do regret not reading from the beginning. By skipping around I feel like I’ve missed something as I’ve grown to love each and every one of these characters and want to know everything I can about them. This story was not for the faint hearted. The author vividly described the crime and their scenes and I definitely felt like I was right their with these detectives. I love the way Lisa Regan writes and how it feels I’m watching a movie but its all in my mind. This is what makes a book and what makes it great. On to that shocking ending. I was on pins and needles throughout this whole book. I never knew what was coming next and each chapter kept me guessing. I was clueless up until the very end. I do have to say that my favorite shock came on the very last page. I never saw that one coming and would love to know what happens with all that. I hope that gets addressed in the next book. In fact, I can’t wait for the next book in this series. Hopefully, I won’t be waiting that long. While I wait I will definitely be reading more books in this series as I haven’t finished all of them just yet. In conclusion, the plot, the characters and all the twists in this book made this book an enjoyable read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

BLOG TOUR REVIEW Review for 'Watch Her Disappear' by Lisa Regan. Read and reviewed via NetGalley for Lisa Regan, Bookouture publishers and Bookouture anonymous Publication date 12th April 2022. This is the third book I have read by this author. It is the fourteenth book in the 'Detective Josie Quinn' series. It can be read as a standalone. I have previously read 'Her Deadly Touch' which is the twelfth book in the series and 'The Drowning Girls' which is the thirteenth book in this series and I would highly recommend them both. I was originally drawn to this book by its beautiful cover and intriguing sounding synopsis and title. I am a huge fan of Lisa and if this is half as good as 'Her Deadly Touch' and 'The Drowning Girls' it is guaranteed to be a page turner. The synopsis stated that this book is 'Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine'. I am a huge fan of Angela Marsons so am looking forward to seeing if this lives up to this statement. I must
