Little Girl Vanish by Denise Grover Swank | Review

Harper Adams #1 | Little Girl Vanish | Denise Grover Swank | DGS | Pub: June 20, 2023 | Pages: 385

I absolutely devoured and adored the Carly Moore series by Denise Grover Swank so I had to read this new Harper Adams series without a doubt! I had heard it would feature Skeeter Malcolm and I was excited, but it actually took me a while to figure out James Malcolm was Skeeter. 

I was pretty happy though to learn more about James Malcom (a.k.a Skeeter), and I really loved Harper Adams as well, so I’m very interested in reading the rest of the series. I can see loads of character development for Harper as she was/is currently an unstable character, but you can’t help rooting for her. Pair that with the (perhaps) romantic tension with James and you hit a home run in my book! 

It wasn’t a mind-blowing mystery or anything, but it was well-written, with great characters and a great premise! I’m looking forward to Book #2!

Thank you to BooksGoSocial for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.

A new mystery series by Denise Grover Swank, author of the USA Today, New York Times, and Wall Street Journal bestselling Rose Gardner Series.

James "Skeeter" Malcolm's story isn't finished yet.

Disgraced, ex-detective Harper Adams is perfectly content wallowing at rock bottom. She’s lost her job, house, and reputation, and it only gets worse when she’s forced to move back home to Jackson Creek, Arkansas, the one place she swore she’d never return.

But everything changes when she gets chilling news. A childhood friend’s daughter is missing…and it’s eerily reminiscent of Harper’s sister’s kidnapping and murder two decades ago.

Not her business.

Except with the police fumbling the case at every turn, Harper realizes she might be the only one who can save the girl.

And she might need the help of a former crime boss to do it.
