My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Girl Trap is the third book in The Madeline Dawkins Series by Cynthia Hamilton. Madeline Dawkins is an event planner and private investigator in Southern California. Madeline and her partner Mike Delaney must work on two cases that seem fairly straightforward at first. While Madeline investigates an estranged heiress in San Luis Obispo, Mike is on his way to Los Angeles to look for his cousin’s missing girlfriend and her sister. They are both about to uncover a terrifying world where the criminals will stop at nothing to keep what they have. Cynthia Hamilton writes yet another thrilling mystery in this series. The author does a wonderful job portraying two different mysteries at the same time. There are difficult topics discussed in this book, such as sex trafficking and mental illness, but the author does so in a tasteful way. I have thoroughly enjoyed this novel and look forward to the last story in the series.

When two separate investigations seemed to be linked can Mike and Madeline get to the cause and help those who are lost in the wave of destruction.

We are back with Madeline and as usual she is busy with both businesses but when some asks her to open up a 12 year old case she jumps at the chance, but what lies between the investigation is worst than she could have ever imagined.

While Madeline is looking into the 12 year old boarding school case, Mike decides to investigate the missing persons of two people close to his cousin but when delving into the case he uncovers that the two cases may not be that far apart from each and that the two of them are going to get more than they bargained for when secrets start to become uncovered.

This story delves into the world of human trafficking and it leaves you wrestling with the couple to find the answers to the questions of what has happened to these people. I love the relationship between the main characters and there roles have developed through the two books and now the third. Although this flows quite nicely as a standalone book as Cynthia gives you a brief outline for the history of the previous stories I would recommend you to have read these books before hand, not just for the history but they are great stories too.

This story opens up Madeline to yet more heartache and please has this woman not gone through enough but she keeps sucking it up and carrying in which is one her best character traits. I enjoyed the twists and turns of the story and thought that it had just the right amount of suspense to keep you wanting to read on to get to the end. I was not disappointed and can’t wait to read the final conclusion of this great series. Thank you for great stories and brilliant characters.

Girl Trap
A Madeline Dawkins Series
Book 3
By Cynthia Hamilton
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
Another great mystery with plenty of suspense.

Madeline and Mike are at it again. Madeline is searching for a missing young lady, who has been missing for 12 years. She knows something is amiss as she has not touched any of her money. Just not right. Mike on the other hand is searching for his cousin’s missing girlfriend and her sister. Both investigations come on the same day, 3 ladies missing and a small trail takes off. Will all 3 ladies be unharmed? Killed? Runaways?

Cynthia Hamilton has done it again. Her book is loaded with suspense and crime. I love her characters and the story that is wrapped around them. This story never stops, it is smooth, terrifying, tense, and builds a roller coaster. At different points of this book I had fought many emotions. Now I am looking forward to book 4. Great story Cynthia Hamilton!

This book has exceeded my expectations, as well as surprised and delighted me. I love the character development and the way the relationships have evolved. The story is engaging and I was swept away and kept guessing until the end. I really love Cynthia’s writing style and love every book I’ve ever read by her. I seriously can’t get enough. In Girl Trap we read of human sex trafficking and mental illness, and we’re reminded of those sobering, complex issues in our real world. A very good read. It keeps you on your toes and wanting to keep reading to find out what happens.

Girl Trap by Cynthia Hamilton a four-star read that will trap you between the pages. This is number three in the Madeline Dawkins series and they can be read as stand-alone, but I have read them and loved them as a series, as they do each focus on a different story, but I have loved the build of the characters. Madeline and Mike are working together but focusing on different cases and what will happen in those will keep you hooked, but what will happen? Will they race against time and manage to solve the mysteries in time? Or will history come a knocking and knock something loose. I enjoyed this one, not as much as the first two, but I am glad I read it, as it does have some good drama and suspense and has left me awaiting number four.

Girl Trap is the third book in the Madeline Dawkins series by Cynthia Hamilton. WOW- Cynthia Hamilton certainly puts Madeline and Mike through their paces (and the wringer) in this book and has once again produced a clever and engrossing mystery for us to enjoy. Cynthia Hamilton and the Madeline Dawkins series have quickly become my go-to reads as I can always count on her to deliver an exciting story. The Madeline Dawkins books would make a fantastic television series, and in fact, they remind me a lot of the old Moonlighting series with Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis- but with more danger, excitement, and a more modern ‘feel’.
This story takes place three months after the ending of the previous book. Madeline and Mike take on two missing person cases that turn out to be anything but simple. They split the cases and begin their investigation, being drawn out of Santa Barbara in the process. For Madeline, a simple inquiry in an old missing persons case quickly turns deadly. Things are definitely not as they seem. Mike’s missing persons case quickly turns into a very dangerous sex/human trafficking investigation.
With missing women, suspicious circumstances, a spate of murders, two investigations, challenges, riddles, danger, sinister adversaries, and plenty of action- this story really took off. I found it to be a little more intense than the previous two, with more emotion and depth than I had expected. I was on the edge of my seat, with bated breath for parts of the book, while in other parts my heart ached for what the character/s were going through. Ms. Hamilton certainly didn’t hold back, putting her characters (and me) through the wringer. Poor Madeline can’t seem to catch a break, and I was left wondering how much more she can take. But she is one tough, and resilient cookie- who always finds her way through these difficult situations. She’s classy, sexy, intelligent, determined, and skilful- a perfect character for this series.
This is another cleverly crafted story in the Madeline Dawkins series. I have already read book four as I could not wait to find out what Maddie and Mike would get up to next- especially after the way this book ended! So, bring on Book #5!!! I cannot wait!!!
Wonderfully gripping reading!!!!

Thank you, Cynthia Hamilton!
