Two Little Souls by B.R. Spangler

Very excited for another novel in the Detective Casey White series but B.R. Spangler!  I've really been enjoying this series and caught up on all the in between ones, so I was less than patiently waiting for Two Little Souls to release.

About Two Little Souls:

Two children clutch each other tight, huddled together on a tiny raft and shivering in the ocean wind. Fear fills their matching hazel eyes. Slowly, little Tommy whispers: “We saw them kill Mommy and Daddy.”

Detective Casey White’s heart shatters when she finds Tabitha and Tommy Roth, just three and six years old, drifting alone on a raft off the coast of the Outer Banks. The children witnessed the murder of their own parents before escaping on a life raft. As Casey clutches them tight she promises to fight for justice.

Combing the coastline Casey finds an abandoned yacht, the broken bodies of a man and woman on board. Ransacking the boat for clues, when Casey sees Sara Roth’s police ID badge her blood runs cold. The children’s mother was a detective from another state. But who would want to tear apart this beautiful family?

Casey soon learns that Sara was tracking down a dangerous murderer who dressed their victims up like dolls. As Sara closed in on the killer, was she silenced forever?

When the body of a young woman perfectly arranged like a doll is found on a nearby beach—her lips and fingernails painted crimson, her hair perfectly combed—Casey is certain that whoever murdered the Roths is now stalking the Outer Banks.

With local women terrified and the whole community desperate for answers, Casey is on the trail of the most twisted killer of her career. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more danger little Tommy and Tabitha are in…

My Thoughts:

Two Little Souls picks up right where the cliffhanger in The Resting Place left off.

Casey and Jericho have found two young children abandoned on a yacht with the bodies of their parents on board.  The children are terrified, but unharmed, and Casey realizes that their mother was a police officer in New York on the hunt for a serial killer.  Not only that, a body matching that case has been found in the Outer Banks, sending Casey and Jericho on the hunt for a single killer, all while worrying about the mental health of the two young children.

Once again, Spangler has crafted a page turning mystery, leaving the reader wondering if Casey can unravel the killer's mysteries before losing more victims to him.  The costumed bodies add an extra creepy element to this mystery (in a good way of course, I love a semi-scary mystery) and once again, the story leaves off knowing there is going to be more to Casey and Jericho's story.  I can't wait for the next one.
