    One thought on “The Stolen Girls”

    1. This is the highly anticipated follow-up to Patricia Gibney's outstanding debut, The Missing Ones.I highly recommend starting with the first in the series, as you’ll be introduced to all the players in Detective Inspector Lottie Parker's life. Both personally and professionally. We pick up the story a few months following the end of book one (No spoilers here!). In this second installment, Lottie's work and family life are equally divided and the lines get crossed or at least blurred in that r [...]

    2. The Stolen Girls is a deeply disturbing police procedural that focuses on sex trafficking, organ harvesting, and self-harm. This is book two in the Lottie Parker series, and it does not disappoint .Detective Lottie Parker is a mess. Her three children are trying to recover from the events that occurred four months prior (in book one), and her partner Boyd is also falling apart. To say their lives are in shambles is an understatement.When the body of a young pregnant woman is found buried on a ro [...]

    3. This is the second book in the Detective Lottie Parker Series. I loved this one more than the first book. This action packed, nerve wrecking tale had me furiously turning pages late into the night to see what happened next. Beautifully written, fast paced, and thrilling. This is a police procedural with a lot of twists thrown in. I didn't know who the killer was until the end and the last twist involving one of the main characters was a beautifully happy moment to read. This is another masterpie [...]

    4. 4.5 starsWow, Ms. Patricia Gibney has written a great follow up to her debut novel, The Missing Ones. The Stolen Girls, #2 in the Detective Lottie Parker series, packs a wallop. DI Lottie Parker is back to work with the Irish garda (police) after a several month leave of absence following her harrowing adventures chronicled in The Missing Ones. A single mom of three, Lottie is seemingly operating with minimal sleep and piles of outside distractions, mainly having to do with her highly stressed t [...]

    5. This is the second mystery in the Lottie Parker series. Lottie has just returned to work after four months off following the trauma from the end of book one. She’s still trying to balance work, widowhood and a household with three teenagers. I'm not sure who's suffering the most here, Lottie or her kids. This time around, Lottie seems to be at odds with everyone. What really rings true is how little we often know what our teenagers are up to. On her first day back, she's handed a murder invest [...]

    6. I've been really looking forward to reading this follow up to Patricia Gibney's successful debut The Missing Ones and I have not been disappointed with this cracker of a story. DI Lottie Parker is back at work following the events that nearly killed her son and shook her whole family in her previous novel. Her three kids are still struggling to get back to normal and teenage Chloe in particular is not coping but Lottie is too tied up in work to give them the attention they need. The bodies of tw [...]

    7. Thanks to NetGalley for an uncorrected digital galley in exchange for an honest review.Yes, I am handing out another 5 star to Patricia Gibney who is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors for police procedurals. Earlier this year, I read her debut novel "The Missing Ones " and was dying to get my hands on book two. Thank goodness I didn't have to wait a whole year!The Stolen Girls, takes place four months after the events of the aforementioned book one and Lottie and her team have the task [...]

    8. THE STOLEN GIRLS by Patricia Gibney is the second book in the Detective Lottie Parker Series. I was anxious to continue on with the series, as I loved her debut novel, “The Missing Ones”. These books continue to get better and better. I loved this one more than the first book.I recommend reading the books in order in the series, as the novels pick-up where the last one finishes off. In this second novel, Lottie walks a fine line between work and family life. Detective Lottie Parker, our prot [...]

    9. Wow The Stolen Girls was a powerful disturbing read for me it involved sex trafficking organ harvesting & self harm at some stages in this book I was in tears as the subject matter was pulling at my heart strings I did get through it & am happy with myself that I finished it not that I wasn'te story starts off when a woman & a child end up at Lottie Parkers house wanting help but Lottie turns them away she is having problems with her children coping with events four months prior ( in [...]

    10. We're back for the second outing with Lottie Parker. Just like the first one, this deals with a sensitive topic, also. It starts off with a horrific and graphic scene and it doesn't let up. I felt like I was on a roller coaster with this novel and it didn't stop to let me breathe till the book was finished. Seriously, this left me winded. I suppose that has a lot to do with Lottie. There wasn't a moment where she wasn't on the move. This murder begins four months after the first book and all the [...]

    11. So the second in the Detective Lottie Parker series. I really liked the first instalment and I'm glad to report I enjoyed this one just as much, if not more. A pregnant girl is found in the ground by a labourer doing roadworks. Soon another womans body is found, again by the same man, in the same circumstances. Meanwhile Lottie Parker has a female caller and small child to her house. Foreign with very little English, she is pleading with Lottie to help her find her missing friend and leaves her [...]

    12. Detective Inspector Lottie Parker is returning to work after a leave of absence following the tragedies of her last novel. Like everything in Parker's life, it starts off with a bang. A young immigrant woman shows up at her front door with her young son and a letter in Albanian, a dead body of a young girl missing a kidney is discovered and her children are angry that she's returning to work and worse of all, she she can't find her keys. Thing move at a rapid pace. More murdered young women with [...]

    13. This is Patricia Gibney’s second book and Book two in the Lottie Parker Series. The first chapter of The Stolen Girls kicks you right in the guts it’s a very hard read as an opening chapter.The story alternates between current day and Kosovo during the war. In Kosovo a young orphaned boy is found wandering and is taken by soldiers to the Chicken Farm. One of these soldiers is so kind to him but there are others he is unsure of.In present day Ireland Lottie Parker and her team are dealing wit [...]

    14. There is a lot to be said for good old-fashioned mystery. The stuff that makes you think, The many twists we did not see coming and hands-on detective work. In recent years crime/thrillers seem to be swaying away from them pillars to over the top plots, dominated by excessive drama and endings that leave you scratching your head as to what you just read.While Patricia Gibney debut novel The Missing Ones did not reinvent the crime/thriller wheel, what it did do was give us what we fans of the gen [...]

    15. I would like to thank Netgalley and Bookouture for an advance copy of The Stolen Girls, the second novel set in the fictional Irish town of Ragmullin to feature DI Lottie Parker.After a few months off to help her children recover from the events of the first novel, The Missing Ones, Lottie comes back to work and has to dive straight back into another murder, that of a young woman found in some roadworks. As the bodies pile up the case widens into something much more.The Stolen Girls is an extrem [...]

    16. Nothing could have prepared me for The Stolen Girls. I knew the book was the second in a series, but I felt adventurous enough to jump in anyway and go against my own rule about reading books in order. I am both happy and devastated I took that decision!The opening sets the tone. I was strangely fascinated and repulsed by the story I was being told. A land far away, a few years ago, and yet I could feel everything as if it were happening in front of my eyes. This is the first step of a harrowing [...]

    17. Quickly becoming a fave seriesFirst the negative. The narrator is SLOW, but on 1.25 works great. Also, I'm not sure how tired I am with cases (not just in this series but in others) involving the lead's family/friend/lover but I'm close to being over it. Why can't a lead just have family/friends/lovers that just exist and not be haunted by the plot line.That said I really like Lottie Parker and her gang. It's filled with suspense, complicated relationships, police procedural, and action - I say [...]

    18. This was a 3.5 read for me and unfortunately I couldn't bump it up to 4. I wanted to like this second in the series by Gibney as I liked the first in the series. I must confess I am attracted to the series because the setting is Ireland and the author is female. However in this novel, the only clues that this was an Irish setting was the frequent use of the word "fecking" by everyone especially Lottie Parker's commanding officer, and the term Garda/Gardai. There was almost no sense of place whic [...]

    19. All of my reviews can be found on novelgossipI was totally blown away by Gibney’s debut, The Missing Ones and really excited that it was the start of a new series featuring Lottie Parker. I’ve been dying to read this book since I finished the first and I’m so glad to be able to tell you that book two is just as amazing as the first one!There is a lot going on here, plenty of cases running simultaneously and tons to keep Lottie on her toes. First, the body of a young pregnant girl is found [...]

    20. Hoo boy, can Patricia Gibney spin a tale! A few months ago, I was raving about The Missing Ones and it looks like I’ll be doing the same again.The Stolen Girls is the second book in the Lottie Parker series and I’m already telling you now that no, you shouldn’t read this as a stand-alone. Lottie and her family are struggling with the devastating consequences of the case in the previous book and if you don’t know what happened there, you’re missing out on quite a bit.A young woman and h [...]

    21. I wavered between 3.5 and 4 stars, but went with 4 because Ms. Gibney is very good at writing. I enjoyed meeting up with Lottie and the gang again, although, we didn't see much of anyone but Boyd. I was happy to get some more of his story.The opening is very raw and heartbreaking, so be prepared! Once again, we find Lottie struggling with family, work and life, and not always with good results. I appreciate her flaws, but at the same time, would like to see some more stability with her - this is [...]

    22. Coming right off of Book One in the Lottie Parker series (The Missing Girls), we go right back into Lottie's life a few months later. Book Two has Lottie getting back to work, but before she can even get out of her house, a young woman and her son are on her doorstep, seeking help. Leaving a mysterious letter they need to translate, she heads into work and is immediately distracted with a murdered young pregnant woman. Lottie tends to push the line when it comes to what she should be doing while [...]

    23. It is DI Lottie Parker's first day back at work after after a traumatic ordeal and things are not going well. Already late to work, she finds a young woman and her child on her doorstep. The stranger does not have much English and hands Lottie a letter before disappearing as quickly as she appeared. Not long after her work day begins, the station is awash with activity as the body of a pregnant girl is found by a road maintenance worker. Before long, another body is discovered, and a local teena [...]

    24. All of my reviews can be found at: jacob-reviews-books.c The Stolen Girls is the second book in the hugely popular, Lottie Parker series. I loved Patricia Gibney’s first book, The Missing Ones and I couldn’t wait to get started on the second and it didn’t disappoint. The Lottie Parker series is becoming a top favourite of mine.In The Stolen Girls, Lottie deals with some dark themes: human trafficking, organ farming, rape and self-harm. It is darker than her previous book and when the body [...]

    25. Brilliant! Patricia Gibney has done it again! This author delivers every time, with every story! This action packed, nerve wracking tale had me furiously turning pages late into the night to see what happened next. Beautifully written, fast paced, thrilling, this is another masterpiece from a fabulous author!

    26. Finished reading: July 3rd 2017"Sometimes what's in front of our eyes is so close, we can't see the full picture."*** A copy of this book was kindly provided to me by Netgalley and Bookouture in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ***(view spoiler)[I have been a Lottie Parker fan ever since I finished The Missing Ones and likewise I have been looking forward to read more about her next adventure. Now I've read The Stolen Girls there is no doubt left: Lottie Parker has that special somethi [...]

    27. Loved it. The Stolen Girls is the second book in the Detective Lottie Parker series and while I recommend reading the first book in the series The Missing Ones this book could be read as a standalone novel. Events in book one impact the lives of DI Parker, her family and her coworkers but are not essential to appreciate this well written complex thriller. It’s Parker’s first day back on the job after a four month absence and she and Boyd are lead investigators on a dead girl found at a road [...]

    28. This second book featuring Detective Lottie Parker is set a few months after the events of the first. Ideally you should read these in order as it adds so much more to the depth of the characters- & Patricia Gibney really knows how to create real,flawed but likeable characters.This time the story starts in Kosovo where a young boy witnesses the rape & murder of his sisters. When fleeing from the scene he is picked up by some Irish Peacekeepers and taken to the 'chicken farm'. here he is [...]

    29. This is the second book in the series and my first book by Patricia Gibney. I was in awe of the number of twists this book has. Patricia has outdone herself from her previous book (just read the book blurb of her previous book). She has brought in issues like sex trafficking and organ harvesting and weaved them in her story sensitively.This is the first time I am reading about Detective Lottie Parker and her life in this book seems to be in a bit of mess (a hangover from the previous book), she [...]

    30. 4.5/5​The Stolen Girls (Detective Lottie Parker #2)​I have started book 2 pretty much as soon as I finished book 1 as I was lucky enough to grab an early copy of this book via Netgalley. So big thanks to Bookouture for allowing me the chance to read this.​Well, right back into the thick of things is Lottie Parker. After having some time off work following the events of her previous case. (Book 1, so I won't put any spoilers)​Lottie now has work to do, and her first case is ready for her. [...]
