    An interesting start to the series

    Missing teenagers and a race against the clock are DI Edina Ogbourne’s welcome party to her transferral to Canterbury – but can she stop the villain before it’s too late? I am a bit unsure how to feel about this new police procedural series with main character DI Edina Ogbourne. On one hand it’s refreshing to have a police novel that doesn’t centre around a jaded, grizzled, older male detective with commitment issues who only has time and love for his job. On the other hand Ed is a little… well… impulsive and promiscuous. She makes some very stupid decisions with the men that she sleeps with which make her a little difficult to take seriously as a female central character in authority. That aside, I enjoyed the plot of The Taken Girls, it changed perspective between villain, victim and the police well and was nicely paced. There were a few moments, especially earlier in the book where a flash-back was suddenly used but not with a good enough sign post that it was in fact a flash back which jarred a little. I did also think that the other police in Ed’s team were a little two dimensional and a bit weird. We started out the book with them supposedly hating her as her transfer to the unit meant they lost one of their own who had to move out to make way for her. As this is the start of a series, I expected the fight to regain respect and control of her team may take more than one book but it barely took more than a few chapters which was a little disappointing. They also felt a little unprofessional at times – a male cop repeatedly asking to sort through a hard drive of naked photos of underage women and getting disappointed when told no seemed strange to me. Overall I’m not really sure how to take The Taken Girl’s central character of Ed but I enjoyed the start of this series and I look forward to seeing where the next books will take us. Thank you to NetGalley and Avon Books UK for a copy of the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    The Taken Girls

    This book was a treat to read from beginning to end. It was very difficult to put it down. I found it hard to believe that this was the first work of fiction the author had written. I hope there will be many more!
