Review of Little Girl Lost by Janet Gover - Five **


When a little girl goes missing, an entire town comes together to find her ... 
When Tia Walsh rides into the small town of Coorah Creek on a Harley-Davidson, Sergeant Max Delaney senses that everything about her spells trouble. But Tia's trouble is not all of her own making, and the dangerous past she tried to leave behind is hot on her heels. 

Sarah Travers has returned home after three years of college to find that her parents have been keeping a devastating secret. Her childhood crush, Pete Rankin, is facing his own struggle with a harsh reality that will take him away from the girl and the life that he loves. 

Tia, Max, Sarah and Pete are all trying to find their future, but when a little girl goes missing in the harsh outback, nothing else matters except finding her safe ...


I truly wish Coorah Creek was real! There are probably outback towns that are similar, but maybe not inhabited by the world's nicest people!

I was so excited when I got this ARC and couldn't wait to get started. A day later and I'm done :( And feel bereft. I so loved my time with Tia, Max, Sarah and Dan. 

A child goes missing and potential romances are put on hold in order to organise a search. Janet conveys the vastness and emptiness of the outback beautifully. She contrasts light and dark so well - both in time and in people. 

By the time you finish this book, you will start brushing off the red dust - everything becomes so real when you're immersed in the happenings of the Creek. And I'm always so sad to leave there. 

You don't have to have read the others in the series - this works very well indeed as a standalone, but I would recommend you do read the rest as you are missing out big time!

Thanks to Choc Lit & NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
