The Winter Girls – ARC Book Review

The Winter Girls: A totally gripping crime thriller (Agent Tori Hunter Book 2) by [Roger Stelljes]

Gazing out the cabin window at the raging blizzard, fear suddenly floods through her as she feels a stranger’s hand clamp across her mouth. No one can hear her stifled screams as she is dragged from the couch by the fire out into the snow.

When seventeen-year-old Savannah Devenish vanishes from her family’s remote vacation cabin in Minnesota, FBI Agent Tori Hunter races along treacherous icy roads to be first on the scene. Savannah’s parents are frantic with worry for their beautiful, carefree girl. Haunted by memories of her own missing sister, Tori vows to do whatever it takes to reunite this family.

When the police uncover that Savannah’s father Jacob was having an affair, they suspect his involvement, but Tori is convinced his despair is genuine. Her close relationship with the chief detective means the team won’t listen, so Tori strikes off alone, persuading Savannah’s distraught best friends to share their secrets. It seems this ‘good girl’ was sneaking out to parties to meet up with a mysterious man…

Then another teenager is snatched from the street, snowy footprints and a discarded hot chocolate cup the last trace of her. The girls are the same age, strikingly pale and blonde. Is a twisted collector stealing them away? And what chance is there that they are being kept alive?

With a deadly snowstorm closing in, Tori battles the elements—and her own team—as she follows the trail to an abandoned cabin by a frozen lake. In the basement are bedrooms filled with clothes for teenage girls. Tori was too late to save her own missing sister twenty years ago, but can she find these girls before they disappear forever?

An utterly addictive and twisty crime thriller that will have your eyes glued to the pages and your heart in your mouth. Fans of Kendra Elliot, Robert Dugoni and Tess Gerritsen won’t be able to put this down.

After reading the first book of the Agent Tori Hunter series and was impressed by the book that I couldn’t wait to read the second book of the series. And finally I did!!!

The story begins with seventeen-year old Savannah Devenish being kidnapped from the cabin and witnessing her own mother being shot to death. Agent Tori Hunter, who no longer works in the FBI but is a professor at the University and is working with Braddock who is also her lover. Together, they discover a sex trafficking that is happening around Minnesota.

I must say, just like the first book, this book was so intense!!!! It was as if I was going on a roller coaster ride with both Hunter and Braddock and felt like in a part of the game. The writing was good, lots of unexpected twists and turns and quiet a fast paced thriller! I felt like I was in a cat and mouse chase game with Hunter and Braddock as they try to track down Savannah’s abductor. Not only, I felt as if I am in some kind of action packed thriller, waiting to know what is going to happen next!!!

Truly enjoyed reading the second book and this book is unputdownable, that will make you go on a roller coaster ride, fast paced thriller with twists and turns. Worth five stars!!

Many thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for providing me ARC. The review is based on my most honest opinion.
