Book Review for Seven Girls Gone by Allison Brennan

 Seven Girls Gone by Allison Brennan

400 pages, ebook

Publication April 25, 2023

Genre:  Mystery, Thriller


Taken from Goodreads:
  For three years, women have been disappearing—and eventually turning up dead in the small bayou town of St. Augustine, Louisiana. Police detective Beau Hebert is the only one who seems to care, but with every witness quickly silenced and a corrupt police department set on keeping the cases unsolved, Beau’s investigation stalls at every turn.

With nobody else to trust, Beau calls in a favor from his friend on the FBI’s Mobile Response Team. While LAPD detective Kara Quinn works undercover to dig into the women’s murders and team leader Matt Costa officially investigates the in-custody death of a witness, Beau might finally have a chance at solving the case.

But in a town where everyone knows everyone, talking gets you killed and secrets stay buried, it’s going to take the entire team working around the clock to unravel the truth. Especially when they discover that the deep-seated corruption and the deadly drug-trafficking ring at the center of it all extends far beyond the small-town borders.


My Thoughts:  Anytime I am looking for a good thriller mystery I check to see if Allison Brennan has anything that I have not read before.  When I saw that Seven Girls Gone was available I jumped at the chance to read it.  Once again, I was not disappointed.   Seven Girls Gone is phenomenal.

 The setting of Louisiana was perfect.   I liked the different locations that seemed so realistic to what I would expect to find if I ever visit.   The people with their southern charm but also their sense of loyalty to their friends and town were perfect.  Mimi, is the perfect southern grandmother and I loved so much how she embraced everyone who walked through her door.  

 Seven Girls Gone is a great book.  The storyline is full of twists and turns.
