The Girl in the Ground by Stacy Green / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @stacygreen26


Nikki Hunt #4

She was beautiful: shiny blond hair, crystal blue eyes and the widest smile Nikki had ever seen. She thought back to what she had seen in the ground, the dirt that caked the white bones. All that remained of her now was the silver locket that was still around her neck…When construction workers unearth a girl’s skeleton in Stillwater, Minnesota, Special Agent Nikki Hunt is called to the scene by her boyfriend Rory. Nikki knows instantly that the girl was murdered, but she is shocked when Rory immediately recognizes her. The victim was his childhood sweetheart, Becky, and he was the last person to see her before she went missing twenty-four years ago.With the love of her life now a potential suspect, Nikki is forced to take a step back from the case. But then her colleague Liam finds lies in Rory’s statement – it appears that Becky may have been carrying Rory’s child when she was killed. Despite this, Nikki still thinks he could be innocent, and knows she must find the real killer herself if Rory stands any chance of walking free.When Nikki finds a potential link to two pregnant girls who were found murdered years before it’s clear that this is the most twisted killer that she has ever faced. And then another girl goes missing from Stillwater. Can Nikki unearth the truth and protect the man she loves? And will she find the missing girl in time to save her life?




It’s nice to be reunited with Agent Hunt again.

She already has been through a lot in this series, but time and again she stands back up and does her utmost to bring justice to the victims of vicious crimes.

Crimes seem to follow her and her loved ones around and this time too it’s close to home. That’s why she has to concentrate on another case. As the clues start to fit together, she is forced to get involved, coming face to face to the killer.

Will she be able to keep her cool long enough to try and get some more information from them? Will she manage to help some of the victims?

I really thought I had figured it all out this time. But OMG, will I never learn? LOL. Of course I did not get it right.

Thank god there is Nikki and her team to make all the wrongs right again and to free the world from some serious deranged people.

Another great story in this series.  There is suspense, but also a lot of things that will make your heart bleed. 5 stars.

Thank you, Stacy Green and Bookouture
