Title:Little Girls Sleeping
Series:Detective Katie Scott Series
Author: Jennifer Chase
He looked down at the little girl, sleeping peacefully, her arms wrapped around a teddy bear. He knew he was the only one who could save her. He could let her sleep forever.
An eight-year-old girl, Chelsea Compton, is missing in Pine Valley, California and for Detective Katie Scott it’s a cruel reminder of the friend who disappeared from summer camp twenty years ago. Unable to shake the memories, Katie vows she won’t rest until she discovers what happened to Chelsea.
But as Katie starts to investigate, the case reveals itself to be much bigger and more shocking than she feared. Hidden deep in the forest she unearths a makeshift cemetery: a row of graves, each with a brightly coloured teddy bear.
Katie links the graves to a stack of missing-persons cases involving young girls—finding a pattern no one else has managed to see. Someone in Pine Valley has been taking the town’s daughters for years, and Katie is the only one who can stop them.
And then another little girl goes missing, snatched from the park near her home.
Katie’s still haunted by the friend she failed to protect, and she’ll do anything to stop the killer striking again—but can she find the little girl before it’s too late

This is a first in a series that main character Kaite and her dog Cisco are home for good after doing tours in Afghanistan. I should also note that the main character suffers from suffering from anxiety and PTSD , so if you think that might be a trigger warning for some of you then you might want to pass this series by but if you think you can handle it then you have to check it out. Because if your looking for a story that doesn't let go , and the right from the start the characters (at least some of them) become your favorite, as well as the pace is fast and the more you read the more you want to see what happens next then this might just be for you,plus the main character Kaite comes off as a strong yet vulnerable female character who isn't going to let her PTSD overcome her and stop her from what she wants to do, so with that said said I want to thank NetGalley for letting me read and review it.
