    3.5 starsNot my favorite, but still a good addition to the series!Her Silent Cry is a police procedural about a child abducted in broad daylight. With no witnesses and no suspects, the child’s parents come under fire. While they seem innocent, deep dark secrets from their past could put their child in imminent danger.

This is the 6th book in the Detective Josie Quinn series--it can be read as a standalone. This was a little different than the other books in the series in that the mystery wasn’t linked to Josie’s personal and professional life. The mystery takes center stage, pushing Josie’s personal life to the side. Outside of one potentially major personal development, Josie's personal life is almost drama free!The Josie Quinn books always push the line of believability, but this one was probably the most realistic. However, there are still a few questionable moments! Josie's ability to solve the case with such ease didn't seem realistic, but I am not going to gripe on this element too much!The case is interesting, but I didn’t care much about it. I wanted more of Josie, Noah, Gretchen and other regulars who show up in this series. Overall, this is a good, fast-paced, and satisfying read. I am hoping the next book puts Josie and her team back in the spotlight. I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Josie Quinn immediately begins looking for her, but there are no signs of the little girl anywhere. Minutes count when children go missing and once Lucy's backpack is found with a note inside - a note form the kidnapper - "answer your phone, or your sweet little darling will die…"More manpower is called in and the series regulars I have come to love (Noah, Gretchen, Luke, Misty, Trinity) are also on the case. Once again, Regan continues to show character development with her characters in this series. While most books in this series can be read as standalone novels, I believe this book best serves as a bridge to what is yet to come as Regan sets the stage for more character development and relationship development in the next book.With most of her books, Lucy's kidnapping is not the only mystery. There were many questions in this book, and I was looking for many answers. Regan is a master at linking the main plot and subplots in the end while building the tension and suspense. Any parents who has, even temporarily had their child go missing form their view, knows the gut-wrenching fear and anxiety, and swell of relief when you see your child again. What happens when you turn your back for one second, turn back around, and can’t find him/her? What happens when seconds turn into minutes, then hours, then days? Regan did a fabulous job of showing the effects a child's kidnapping has on each parent and their marriage. Another solid hit by Regan who has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I'm highly anticipating the next book in the series. I found this to be a fast and satisfying read that kept me wondering what would happen next. What would the italic sections reveal and who was behind it all!This is a highly addictive series and I can't get my hands and eyes on these books fast enough.Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All the thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I just love, love our main character here Josie and Lisa Regan has given me another reason to love her more. With each story, Josie develops a little more and we see more into her and her heart. In this installment, we see another side to Josie and it's not to be missed. Josie is on the race to find the kidnapper of a missing girl. Just how Lucy goes missing is chilling and unsettling but not in a graphic way. It's a real eye-opening and had me rethinking a few things when I am out and about.

I was never sure which was worse.no matter how badly he hurt her, she always found her way back to our room eventually. She's lower herself into our creaking bed, hissing her breaths through gritted teeth, and reachfor me. I learned to be very careful when I moved under the covers. Sometimes even the slightest pressure would make her gasp with pain. As gently as I could, I would curl my back into her stomach and wait for the trembling fingers skittering over my scalp to eventually fall into a slow soothng rhythm.I had so many questions, but I didn't ask them. I didn't want the man to hear me, to remember I was there too. When the ragged edges of her breath smoothed out, she'd let out a soft sigh that meant she had reached a point where her pain was bearable.'It's okay,' she'd say. 'It will be okay.'She was always a bad liar.ABOUT THIS BOOK: Round and round she goes, blonde pigtails flying, her high-pitched giggle catching on the wind. But as the ride slows to a stop, her seat is suddenly empty. Little Lucy is gone…When seven-year-old Lucy Ross is snatched from the carousel in Denton city park, Detective Josie Quinn joins the frantic search.

Does Josie have what it takes to crack this case? She has no choice if she’s going to bring Lucy home alive…MY THOUGHTS: 5 super-novas!!!!!If you are planning on starting this book, don't plan on doing anything else....it is one of those 'just one more chapter' books. The sort where ten chapters later you are still telling yourself that you will read just one more chapter before you go cook dinner....and end up ordering in. I read this in one sitting, couldn't put it down.I didn't even stop reading long enough to highlight anything, or select possible passages for my excerpt...that has never happened before!Breathtaking, heartpounding tension, this has to be the best book in the series yet, and the earlier books have been excellent.Don't waste time reading my review...just read this book!#HerSilentCry #NetGalleyTHE AUTHOR:Lisa Regan is a suspense novelist.

While at the park with young Harrison Josie has a front row seat when little Lucy disappears into thin air after a ride on the carousel. The kidnapper has left several messages implying that this is personal and Josie is convinced that the parents are keeping secrets. As the body count rises the tension increases, will Josie solve the crime in time? This book had a little bit of a different feel to it. The rest of the books in the series have a personal connection to either Josie or one of the other members of her team. Both Gretchen and Noah are in the story, but neither of them play a very significant role. So while I was interested in the story I missed the personal touch. I think one of my favorite parts of this series is Josie and how much her character has developed over the course of the series, there was a little of that but not as much as I would’ve liked. Having said that the mystery was very well done. The kidnapper/killer was quite disturbed, diabolical, and cunning. I was completely invested and liked how all the pieces came together. Cannot wait to see what’s next for Josie, Gretchen, Noah, Trinity, and Luke.*** many thanks to Bookouture for my copy of this book ***

Once again this was a fast read for me, a quick paced police procedural that is in no way predictable.Josie is at the local park on a day off when 7 year old Lucy Ross disappears from the carousel ride - under the noses of her parents and many other witnesses. Did she wander off or did somebody take her? Josie immediately starts a search to find her. After hours of searching she locates Lucy's backpack with a note to her parents "Answer your phone or your sweet darling will die" The next day the parents receive a call from what they think is Lucy's nanny only to find it is the kidnapper - and the nanny is dead. Now the people close to the family are in danger and the parents need to confront their past to find their daughter.Thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for my advanced copy of this book to read.

But it boils down to one family member who may have secrets ... but do these secrets reveal a kidnapper?This was a fast paced, well written story. Starting with a bang, the suspense doesn't let up until the very last page. The characters are all finely drawn, the reader can feel the emotional upheaval coming in waves from the pages.Although 6th in the series, this reads well as a stand alone. As usual, I highly recommend starting at the beginning so as to not miss those nuggets that make this a standout series.Many thanks to the author / Bookouture / Netgalley for the digital copy of this crime fiction.

Gripping, intense, emotional, heartrending – a psychological thriller with bite! Ms Regan writes this series with ease – I’m really looking forward to #7.

Although they are all in this book, the focus is on the case at hand. So, those who have not read the previous titles should have no problem finding themselves quit engaged in this story. Her Silent Cry was a one-sitting read that kept my interest from the very beginning, and the ending definitely made me catch my breath!

All opinions are my own.  Series Background:   (Warning – May contain spoilers from previous books)Once Acting Chief of Police, Josie Quinn is now doing what she is best suited for. She’s back to being a detective and happy. She is learning to love her new-found family, but it is keeping her busy. So is dating Detective Noah Fraley.My Synopsis:   (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions)Seven-year old Lucy Ross disappears from the park carousel while her mother Amy rides the horse right in front of her.  Her father, on his cell phone while waiting for them, sees nothing.   Detective Josie Quinn, who is also at the park with Misty's 3-year old son, sees nothing either.  However, she quickly gets the police involved to search for this young child.  With cell phone pictures and videos from others in the playground turning up nothing, how could this child just disappear?  Did she wander away on her own, or was she taken? But how?When the family gets a call from their nanny, the voice on the other end proves to be that of the kidnapper.  The nanny is found dead.  And so it goes,  the kidnapper is playing a game, and Amy seems to be the ultimate target.  What is it about Amy that has angered this man so much that he wants to hurt her so bad by taking everything she loves?   What is she hiding?  More will pay the price before they even have a chance of finding Lucy. My Opinions:  Josie is a strong and likable female character, and I like how she defended her ideas when her boss questioned them.  The characters are getting depth. I am glad that the mess with Luke is in the past, which as far as I am concerned should not have been in the last book at all, and then I wouldn't have been forced to read about it again....as far as I am concerned it was out of character for Josie. The plot was interesting and held my attention from beginning to end.  Although fairly evident, it was interesting how Amy's back-story was told without it being stated as to what those chapters were.  There was a lot of action, and it was a fast read.This series continues to deliver, and I am looking forward to more of Josie!For a more complete review of this book and others, please visit my blog: http://katlovesbooksblog.wordpress.com/

However, it seems that perhaps that Lucy's mother is not telling the truth. Is she somehow involved in her daughters disappearance? It is up to Detective Josie Quinn and the FBI to find the child and bring her home alive.A great story, with enough twists and turns to keep a reader on their toes. It was my first introduction to the Josie Quinn series and I will certainly be reading books 1-5.Many thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an unbiased review.I gave the Book 4.5 Stars

Thank you! *** (view spoiler)[I've been a fan of this series ever since I read the first book about eighteen months ago. With each new meeting with Detective Josie Quinn, my love for this series is only reconfirmed all over again and each book brings the promise of yet another intense and suspenseful ride. Her Silent Cry is no exception to the rule, and already the sixth successful installment of this detective series. Want to know why?First of all, the simple fact of being able to meet up with some of your favorite characters again is always a fantastic feeling. Josie Quinn and her team managed to win over my heart from the start, and with each new story it feels as if you are meeting up again with old friends. You can see their characters develop over time, the events of the different books leaving its mark on their characters as well as the dynamics between them. While it's true you can technically read Her Silent Cry as a stand-alone with only minor loss of background information, you will miss out on references to the past and might not fully get the dynamics between the different characters. And with the first five books all being thrilling and intense rides, there's no excuse not to catch up with the past before diving into the newest Detective Josie Quinn!In Her Silent Cry you will find new developments relating to the personal life of Josie Quinn, and that part of the storyline definitely left me wanting for more! Josie, Noah, Gretchen and even Misty and Trinity play a role throughout the story, although the main focus is on the new case that started developing right under Josie's nose. It's a missing child this time around, and a case that turns out to be a lot more sinister and complicated than you might think when little Lucy first goes missing... The little chapters with nameless characters give you a hint, but you'll find yourself wondering how everything actually connects as you keep turning those pages and things are getting more and more critical. A fast pace is combined with a suspenseful and twisted plot filled with secrets and turns and together they will make the intensity level go through the roof. Josie Quinn and her team are finding themselves in a race against the clock, desperately trying to find Lucy alive and stop more people from getting hurt... But things are not that simple as certain people seem to be hiding crucial information that could potentially help them get Lucy back. As always, you might wonder about the credibility of certain aspects of the plot, but I myself was too busy flying through the pages and enjoying myself to really stand still by that. If you are a fan of intense and thrilling detective thrillers that pack a punch, you should definitely schedule yourself a meeting with Detective Josie Quinn soon! (hide spoiler)] P.S.

I love that she looks at things outside the box. I love that she keeps at it, never giving up. This story involved the disappearance of a seven yr old. Which is every parents nightmare. The plot was twisted and so intricate as well as intriguing. The way this author weaves her story never ceases to blow my mind. And honestly as of yet I have not read any book I haven’t devoured and loved. Her talent amazes me. Even at book 6, you are still riveted with the characters as they grow and evolve. Another epically great book by a talented woman! MUST READ!

I read this book in one sitting, hooked from the first page and spent most of this read sat on the edge of my seat. In places I was shocked but kept on reading. A crime thriller par excellence and I did not want this book to end. An easy five stars and so Highly Recommended. Hell no this is a MUST READ and can't wait to read the next in this gripping and very addictive series. I would like to thank the author, Bookouture and Netgalley for the ARC in return for giving an honest review.

    What a great series this is. After having read the previous part, you might think this can’t get any better, but hey guess again. The author shakes this out of her sleeve as if it’s as simple as learning the ABC. It’s so great when a book can have you utterly mesmerized and leaves you gobsmacked after the final revelations.The story also contains a big amount of emotions.

    I don’t know where to start with this review! I love this series, I really do! I just had a hard time reading this book. Not because I didn’t like it, I really did, just the storyline of a missing child was hard to read. It makes me never want to let mini-me out of my sight ever again. It’s every parent’s nightmare!This is a tough case for Quinn and her team, at least she has the FBI to help this time. A young child goes missing, how the hell did she just disappear. Even looking back over video I don’t know where to start with this review! I love this series, I really do! I just had a hard time reading this book. Not because I didn’t like it, I really did, just the storyline of a missing child was hard to read. It makes me never want to let mini-me out of my sight ever again. It’s every parent’s nightmare!This is a tough case for Quinn and her team, at least she has the FBI to help this time. A young child goes missing, how the hell did she just disappear. Even looking back over video footage and pictures taken by parents at the park, it’s just not clear. Then the rucksack is found in the middle of the carousel where Lucy was abducted with a note to answer the phone.With each phone call received, a body turns up. The tension ramps up, the secrets uncovered are horrifying and frightening. You feel the tension and the stress the parents are living, every moment and feeling they live, I lived. You also have chapters from unknown characters thrown in between, and it is devastating to see how these chapters link into the story and how the past really can shape a person if they let it. The whole nature vs nurture is strong here as you see an argument for both all through the actions of people who call themselves parents.Whilst you have the team trying to solve this crime, something isn’t quite right with Quinn and you begin to wonder if some of the actions from the previous book have started to catch up with her. Both Noah and Quinn are still carrying the weight of what happened in the previous book and it adds a sense of realism to the story as they have not just moved on quickly.It is easy to read these as standalone books but I wouldn’t. I would read the series in order, (although I still need to read book 1 and 2) because you see the change and growth in the team. Although things are mentioned it does not hamper any of the enjoyment or the reading.Regan’s writing always keeps me engaged and I had to devour her book. It took me a couple of evenings, and I was on edge the whole time reading. The suspense was ramped to the fullest and I really could not see how this would end. I mean would there be a happy ending?I love that you have a team that everyone pulls their weight and have a place. I mean I couldn’t possibly have a favourite as they all add to the team, they all have had a focus on each of the books and hopefully, Mettner might next time. However, I do have a huge soft spot for Noah, just saying.I am already excited to see what happens next, and I really hope Quinn gets her vacation man she needs it!!

When at a local park, Lucy gets off the carousel and vanishes. Soon the FBI is called in to help with the search but they have no leads and things are very bleak. Then, they hear a message from the abductor. There's another message as well -- a body. Then another. It seems the kidnapper has an agenda but Josie can't wrangle any information from Amy about who might have taken her child. Although there is a half-hearted ransom demand, the kidnapping doesn't seem to be about the money. It turns out that Amy has some huge secrets. NO SPOILERS.Why you should read it: This is a great series that has really grown on me as I've come to know Josie, her boyfriend, Lieutenant Noah Fraley, the other police officers under her command, and her family and friends. All of their collective history makes each book like a family reunion as you get updates and new information about them. But the focus is also on this complicated child abduction case. There are some interesting twists and turns as the narrative plays out and the procedural details of the investigation are described. Some very tense moments and lots of drama surround this missing child scenario. The writing is excellent and the pacing is perfect to keep your tension high. I have read all of the installments, in order, and I'm definitely looking forward to the next one! Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for this e-book ARC to read and review.

    "Her Silent Cry" is a combination police procedural and thriller with a twisty plot. Police Detective Josie Quinn is at the park when seven-year-old Lucy Ross goes missing from the carousel ride. Lucy's mother doesn't seem to be telling the whole truth which makes the difficult case even harder. Josie brings her team and the FBI onto the case to find Lucy before it's too late.

This book is the sixth in the Detective Josie Quinn series. Even though it's the first book I've read by this author, I feel I learned enough about the main characters to enjoy the story. All of the main characters seem to have complicated, tragic backstories, so I'm sure there are some details I missed but it didn't lessen my enjoyment of this book. Most of the story is told from Josie's point of view, except for some occasional first person passages from the point of view of an unidentified person. Instead of helping to build suspense, I thought the passages just made the story harder to follow. Even with these "interruptions" to the main plot, there was plenty of tension in the story to keep my interest. It's not an easy read because of some of the things happening in the book, but it is fast-paced. Once I started reading it, I wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen next.More secrets are revealed in each chapter and the plot takes several twists before the whole truth comes out. Some of Lucy's mother's actions didn't make sense, but like Josie I tried not to judge. I enjoyed the book and would definitely read new book in the series. I think those who have been following the series will really like it, as well as fan of Christina Dodd or Rick Mofina.I received this book from NetGalley through the courtesy of Bookouture. The book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

Many questions arise as the story unfolds and the race to save Lucy is paramount for the police force and the FBI team that comes to help. This is not an easy book to read. Lucy was taken and whether or not she would survive was an unknown till the end. Lucy’s mother had secrets that impacted the situation – I really felt sorry for Amy. Josie, from what I picked up, also had a backstory that included being kidnapped and raised by someone other than her own family but missed that book and her meeting up with her family after considerable years. Many were murdered by Lucy’s kidnapper in his attempt to torture Lucy’s mother. It was convoluted and all became clear by the end. I felt sorry for the kidnapper in some ways but in others wish he could have been a better person in spite of his past. This book was in many ways a straightforward police procedural with a bit of romance on the side and much teamwork by the police. * Did I enjoy this book? Yes...eventually...had trouble getting into it and am not sure if that is because I had not read previous books or if perhaps I was not in the mood for this type of book today...not lighthearted and I might have preferred something easy-reading instead. * Would I read more by this author/in this series? I believe I might. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

It’s a race against time for Josie and her team to put together the pieces and find Lucy.This is book #6 in the Detective Josie Quinn series. Whilst it can be read as a standalone story, for better understanding of the characters and their back stories, I would recommend reading the other books in the series.I love this series and have followed it through right from book one. Josie is a great character as I have read the other books I know what has happened to her over the last few years. She hasn’t though let any of her tragic past affect how she does her job and is a dedicated police officer. Spending time with her friend’s son in the park, she ends up right in the middle of the disappearance of Lucy Ross and whilst it’s shocking that it all happens right under their noses, Josie remains professional to help Lucy’s parents. I have to admit though that I have in previous books seen a more tender side to Josie, whereas in this book she does seem a bit more “cold hearted” towards Lucy’s parents. I would like to think that this was due to her remaining professional rather than a change in her character!!Her team also return with her in this book, but they don’t play as big a part as they have done in previous books in the series. I do like Gretchen’s character, so was disappointed that we didn’t see as much of her, but I did enjoy the story focussing on Josie’s character more. The story was gripping and it didn’t take many pages for me to become hooked into it. It was, at times, a difficult read due to the nature of a child abduction, but it was written sensitively and the storyline had me turning the pages furiously to find out what happened to little Lucy. Whilst I had my suspicions of different people, none of them turned out to be right and it was great when everything was revealed as I genuinely hadn’t guessed!This was a suspense filled story with lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing until the end. This series continues to get better and better despite being six books and I’m excited as to what this author can come up with for the next book in Josie’s story! Would definitely recommend not just this book, but the whole series!

She immediately sets in motion an investigation into Lucy's disappearance. The reader gets sucked into the drama. This is not just another kidnapping story. It is a tale of surprises, twists and turns. When the FBI joins Josie's team, the search team is greatly enhanced. They soon discover that Amy is not quite what she seems. She has secrets – many secrets. People who know Amy and Lucy are being murdered. What is this kidnapper's motive? What does he (or she), want? While Amy insists that she doesn't know any more people who could be in danger, she is wrong. The surprises keep coming. I was literally glued to the pages of this book. This is the story of a painstaking and step-by-step investigation into Lucy's kidnapping. The FBI and the Denton City Police are very competent and professional. I enjoyed getting reacquainted with these people once again. I liked Josie and her boyfriend Noah's relationship. We learn much about Josie's personal life and her relationship with her sister. Very good stuff! The story is both well written and plotted. I kept trying to think of something else the police could have done to find Lucy, but Ms. Regan has all the bases covered. I believe this may well be the best novel that Ms. Regan has penned yet. I want to thank NetGalley and Bookouture for forwarding to me a copy of this engaging and entrancing book for me to read, enjoy and review.

Lucy ran away from Amy on the carousel so no one can tell if she’s run away or been taken until Josie finds Lucy’s backpack and a sinister note.I thoroughly enjoyed Her Silent Cry which is a tense read with plenty of twists and turns. The novel is told from Josie’s point of view as she tries to make sense of the information she has available and get ahead of the game the kidnapper is obviously playing. There are also chapters told from the point of view of an abused child throughout the novel which leave the reader guessing about who, where, why etc. and their relevance to the hunt for Lucy. Personally I felt they were a waste of space, adding little to the narrative and not much enlightenment when the resolution and explanations came, which, while having a good twist or two, did not strike me as anywhere near realistic.Having said all that I really enjoyed the journey of reading the novel. The twists come thick and fast, the perpetrator has a clever plan and the tension and urgency of the hunt all push the novel forward at a fast rate leaving the reader little time to breath and unwilling to put it down.I like Josie Quinn who is a smart, dedicated detective with a well balanced life. It wasn’t always that way for her so she has added empathy when dealing with victims. In this novel the FBI come to help and unlike in many novels there isa harmonious relationship between the two teams although it pushes credibility to see Josie constantly outthink the child abduction specialists. I also like that Ms Regan always pushes Josie’s life forward so there are new developments which can be regarded as either good or bad - even Josie hasn’t made up her mind.Her Silent Cry is a good read which I have no hesitation in recommending.
