Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture Audio for an advanced audio copy.
The Girl in the Pink Shoes is a mystery surrounding a disappearance of a young girl named Kailey. The protagonist Lucy is a private investigator that is looking into the case and trying to find out what happened to Kailey.
Lucy is not your normal PI. She used to work for child protective services but left when she saw how the system fails. She became a PI and a vigilante. As a vigilante, she was going after sexual predators who found a way to beat the system. She has good intentions but Lucy is a murderer. The book does get you to like her even though she is capable of vile acts, that’s what good writing can do.
The story kept me interested. I needed to know what happened to Kailey. You will dive into a very dark world to find out the truth.
My biggest complaint about the story was that some of the plot twists were thrown at you just to be a twist and they did not even matter. It’s something strange that I have not seen done often. I don’t think that tactic to get more twists works but thankfully the overall story is strong enough to carry you past that.
This was my first book by Stacy Green but I don’t think it will be my last. This mystery is worth your time.
Final score 4/5
