Description

The Girl From Paradise Hill Tess returns home to bury her father but what she finds buried in his attic makes her question everything she thought she knew about the mild-mannered trucker…

PARADISE HILL, WASHINGTON

The seemingly idyllic mountain town harbors a dark secret: four young girls have disappeared over a forty-year period. With no crime scenes, no leads and no suspects, the cases have gone cold.

Until today.

The remains of one missing girl are discovered in a burned-out cabin at a remote campsite, reopening the case and suggesting the worst may be true – a ruthless child killer is operating in Washington State.

TESS MCCLINTOCK

Crime reporter and amateur cyber-sleuth Tess is obsessed with the cold cases of missing girls in Washington State. As she works to settle her father's estate, she's shaken to her core when she uncovers evidence pointing to his involvement. 

FBI SPECIAL AGENT MICHAEL CARTER

On leave after solving a particularly heartbreaking case of child abduction and murder for the FBI's Violent Crimes Against Children Task Force, Michael is back in Paradise Hill to recover and visit with family. Despite doctor's orders to stay clear of police work, Michael's drawn back in when Tess asks for his help understanding the secrets found in her father's attic.

A RUTHLESS CHILD KILLER 

Having escaped justice for decades, he's bored and deliberately stirs the pot, revealing the body of one of the dead girls. Despite the fact he's hiding in plain sight, no one suspects that he's really a wolf and not the sheep he pretends to be. He sees Tess and Michael's involvement in the case as a challenge and views Tess as a temptation he can't resist.

AN EIGHTEEN-YEAR OLD COLD CASE

For Tess and Michael, the cases are personal: Tess's best friend in public school, Lisa Tate, was one of the missing girls from Paradise Hill. Michael was babysitting the night little Lisa vanished. The guilt they harbor over their role in her disappearance drives them both. 

Desperate for answers, Tess and Michael join forces to track a killer and uncover the secrets Tess finds in her father's attic. Will the answers bring Tess peace or shatter her?

THE GIRL FROM PARADISE HILL is book one in the McClintock-Carter Crime Thriller Trilogy.

Book Two: The Girl Who Cried Too Much and Book Three: The Only Girl Left Alive follow journalist Tess McClintock and FBI Special Agent Michael Carter as they try to solve old cold cases and stop a serial killer who has escaped justice for decades.

    An engaging read but far too many spelling mistakes throughout, and a very disappointing end. Felt a bit like a waste of time..
  • Good potential but disappointed

    This book could of been so much better. Great story line but instead of dragging it out over three books it could of been condensed in to one or even two books. Ending was a bit disappointing as it was very rushed.

    This book was enjoyable but there is no ending at all. The story just stops at a random point with none of the main questions answered. A waste of time
  • A good story badly written

    The idea behind this story was clever and engaging, a novel twist on the genre. But there was so much bad writing it was distracting. So much so that I’m not going to other with part two. There were lots of instances of repetition of facts that had been mentioned a few pages earlier, as though the write forgot she already wrote it or was worried the reader would not remember. There was even multiple cases of repetition in the same sentence, that just screamed lazy editing. It didn’t read as though anyone had read through this book and it could have been improved tenfold by a good editor cutting out the extraneous material. Pretty annoying in all.
