Two Girls Down by Louisa Luna
Author: Louisa Luna
Release Date: January 9, 2018
When sisters go missing from a store parking lot in a rural Pennsylvanian town, Alice Vega is called in to find them. The bounty hunter has had a lot of success in finding missing kids. She doesn't get a warm welcome by the local police, so she asks for help from a local private investigator who was once part of the local police force. Max Caplan just wants to live his life and avoid things from his past, but Alice is hard to turn away.
Teaming up, the pair starts unraveling a series of secrets and lies that plague the town. With the clock ticking, potential suspects vanishing, and a mother who is desperate to find her daughters, it's anyone's guess as to what happened to these girls.
Two Girls Down was very strong from the start. I was drawn to all the characters. Alice is tough and does things her way. She's got a touch of a rebel nature, but that made me like her more. Max is a single dad who just wants to live his life. I liked his daughter, too.
Eventually, the mystery behind their disappearance started to unravel. I wish it hadn't taken that turn. While the book had been unique up until that point, it turned into a book I've read in the headlines and in fictional offerings time and time again.
