Find My Child – Madison Harper book 1
You thought your little girl was safe at summer camp. You were wrong.
She drags her eyes open, realizing she’s starting to fade. Did she imagine the voices, or were they real? She tries calling out—“Daddy?”—using all her remaining strength. But she’s too late and her little voice just isn’t loud enough…
When Detective Madison Harper arrives at a remote summer camp in Shadow Falls, northern California, her heart breaks for Jenny, the sweet little girl last seen splashing in the lake with her friends before she vanished. Peering into the silent cabins filled with rows of neatly made beds, Madison knows this idyllic place is hiding a terrible secret.
The girl’s parents are distraught, and the local police have no leads—they desperately need Madison’s help. She’ll do whatever it takes to crack this case, because it’s the only way back to the son she lost to the care system years ago when she was framed for a crime she didn’t commit.
But with the camp staff keeping tight-lipped and her new partner on the edge of a breakdown, Madison can’t find any truth to her instinct that there is more to Jenny’s perfect parents than meets the eye. Until she discovers a disturbing family portrait Jenny drew at the local library. Was this angelic girl more troubled than anybody knew? Was she in danger from those she trusted most?
One thing is certain, if Madison doesn’t find the answers soon, the lives of more innocent children will be at risk…
Why (have I chosen to read it)?
I have been following Wendy Dranfield on Twitter for years – often searching out her posts to check out her latest photos. Not, I’m sorry to say, because of her books but because of her photos of Teddy. Teddy is her beautiful cat who I am a great fan of. Having adored Teddy for so long, I thought it was time that I actually read one of Wendy’s books, and Find My Child, being the first of a new series, seemed a good place to start. Loving it so far!

While (I am reading it)
The snow has, at last, arrived. We had about an inch a while ago, and the weather has been so cold that it has stayed, but this week we’ve had about 3 feet, with more forecast. It makes everything very beautiful – except for our drive which it makes hard work to clear.
If you would like to tell me What you are reading, Why you are reading that book, and what you’re doing While you’re reading it, then let me know via the Guest Blog Page on EmmabBooks.com and maybe I’ll blog about it.
All the best, Emma
