When a young girl is found dead on the beach, encircled in shells and clutching an ugly doll it bears a lot of similarities to a previous, unsolved case. But are the two connected and can Jessie Flynn advise objectively on such a heart-breaking case?

I must admit that I had never read any of the other books in the Jessie Flynn series but this was certainly a good introduction and has inspired me to read more! Jessie seems to be a very interesting and complex character who I’m sure makes a good foundation for the rest of the series. This book holds some great characters in general; from the moody DI Marilyn to the deeply disturbed Laura. I wasn’t sure if any of them except Jessie’s boyfriend Callan had been introduced previously but I enjoyed finding out more about their backstories and personalities.

The story itself is nicely paced with enough red herrings and plot twists to keep you engaged throughout and a final conclusion that only really gets revealed right towards the end – it really does keep you guessing right until the last moment.

I felt that the blurb gave away a little too much about Laura than I would have liked – it made me really suspicious of her from the first time we meet her. If nothing in the blurb had mentioned about the link between her and the girls then I think one of the very early twists would have hit a harder than it actually did.

Overall Two Little Girls is a great installment in the Jessie Flynn series and one that you do not really need to have previous knowledge of the series to enjoy. It’s a well-paced thriller with some great characters that keeps you guessing. Thank you to NetGalley and HarperCollins for the chance to read the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
