The disappearing hitchhiker is one of the hoariest urban legends, and no one knows that better than Gabriel Walsh, a lawyer who grew up on folklore and myth. When author of books on the supernatural Patrick brings Gabriel a case of a hitchhiking woman in white who vanished on a country road after accepting a ride from a businessman, Gabriel knows the Cainsville elder is just trying to wheedle into his good graces. But Gabriel is a man in need of a mystery, one that will get him back into someone else’s good graces. His investigator, Olivia Taylor-Jones, has blown town supposedly on a simple vacation. But when she left there was a rift between them and…he misses her.
Gabriel is well aware the only thing Olivia loves more than a good mystery is a weird one, and this hitchhiker case more than fits the bill. As Gabriel digs into the story, he’s forced to face ghosts of his own and admit that the woman in white isn’t the only one who has lost her way.
With Lost Souls, New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong weaves an unmissable novella-length tale connected to her fan-favorite Cainsville series.
Goodreads rating: ✮✮✮✮ (4.27 stars)
My rating: ✮✮✮ (3 stars)
I’ve been a fan of Kelley Armstrong since I was lent the first Women of the Otherworld books, and I have been obsessed with her ever since. However, I dived into this book having no knowledge of the Cainsville series, as I hadnt got round to reading them yet.
Despite having no knowledge of the series, however, I thought this novella was fast-paced and has made me even more interested in reading the series. The characters had depth, and even though I didn’t quite know what the terminology meant, I was intrigued. I was also disappointed in how short the book was. I knew it was a Novella, but I was hoping for something longer.
I am interested in the back story, and I would recommend this novella for anyone interested in picking up the series.
