Girl Trap (A Madeline Dawkins Mystery Book 3) by Cynthia Hamilton – Review by Emma Morreale

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cynthia Hamilton really knows how to grab me from just a synopsis. How could I possibly say no to two separate, seemingly straight forward cases of missing persons? I tore through this book to get to the part where Madeline reaches the Catholic school because how could that not be filled with mystery and delicious intrigue. With the topic of sex trafficking, Ms. Hamilton was not afraid to sugar coat some details and I really respect her for it. It will make some people uncomfortable to read but if it makes even one person get involved in fighting it, every bit of discomfort is worth it compared to what it could prevent.
This is absolutely the most intense of this series. I hope it keeps up because it makes for amazing reading but it also gets you in the frame of mind to follow Madeline and Mike’s lead and do something about it.

Girl Trap (A Madeline Dawkins Mystery Book 3) by Cynthia Hamilton

Girl Trap is the third book in the Madeline Dawkins Mystery Series. I found myself lost in the pages while sitting on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what happens next. I do suggest reading the first two books in this series if you haven’t already as it will give you a better enjoyment of this series. Mike and Madeline are at it again. These two are amazing characters that I love reading about. These two believe that they are each on a missing person case but they soon find out that ,that may not be the case. What will happen with their cases? Can these two find who is missing? Find out what happens next in this absolute must read. I can’t wait to read more from this Author.

Girl Trap is the third book in Cynthia Hamilton’s Madeline Dawkins’ series and I absolutely loved the opening! You need to read the books in order to fully understand who Madeline is and how she has become the woman she is now!
In this story Madeline and her partner Mike are working on two cases at the same time. They solve both of them but it takes its toll and the writer leaves us at the edge of our seat at the end of the story, impatiently waiting for what is coming next! The story takes place just over one and half day and we are on such a crazy rollercoaster of human trafficking and mental illness and at times it feels so real that you forget that you are reading a book! Some would say that they want to escape the reality when picking up a book but the way Cynthia Hamilton tackles the darker side of our society, you forgive her and voluntarily join the journey!

Madeline Dawkins adventures….are never dull! And Girl Trap…wow! Probably my favorite so far. Some serious subjects covered in this story. Book three is a must read! But only after reading books 1 and 2!

Hamilton dives into a touchy subject, one that the real world is unbelievably discovering as well. Several girls have gone missing. Not all of the cases are the same, however there is more to it than meets the eye. Madeline and Mike have to use their MDPI skills during this story. They will have to go at it alone, as well, since this time there are so many situations arising and in different cities. Hamilton again has given us a story like no other. The adventure that Mike and Maddie take to solve their mysteries keeps you turning the pages.

I can recommend this story to the readers that like a little mystery mixed with a little action to keep you on your toes.

5-Stars

Girl Trap is an exciting and fun read. The author immediately pulled me in from page one with Madeline’s flash back. It was gripping. I could not put this book down after that. This is the second book I have read by this author and it is the third book of its series. It can be read as a standalone. I really enjoyed how easy the storyline was to follow as well as all the action and suspense. The author had excellent character development for all main characters and supporting characters. I highly recommend this novel and will definitely be reading more from her in the future.

GIRL TRAP is the third installment in the “Madeline Dawkins Mystery” series. I think this is a series that should be read in order. There are vital details from the previous stories that are mentioned within the first few paragraphs.

GIRL TRAP is two stories woven into one book. The author writes very detailed scenes and I often found myself reading only the first sentence in each paragraph. There are twists and turns and some obvious directions and results.

I would have rated this a 3.5 star but the last two pages intrigued me enough that I will continue with the series.

by Cynthia Hamilton

Another wonderful, suspenseful read by this talented author. As soon as I started reading this story I couldn’t put it down, I found myself turning pages quickly to find out what was going to happen next. I really liked the fact that both Mike and Madeline had their own case to work on this time but I also feel torn because I think they are better together. I have really become invested in these two characters and love reading about mysteries they solve and the trouble they find themselves in along the way. I highly recommend this book.

Girl Trap by Cynthia Hamilton is the third book in the Madeline Dawkins series. Madeline and her partner Mike are working two different cases. Are they somehow related?
I have enjoyed this series and think it improves with every book as the characters grow and evolve. I really like the changes Madeline has had since the first book. I recommend reading these in order because there are elements that carry over from book to book. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Girl Trap (A Madeline Dawkins Mystery Book 3) by Cynthia Hamilton. This is the 3rd installment of the Madeline Dawkins series and it doesn’t disappoint. Madeline a party planner and private investigator thinks things are rocking along same as ever when she gets 2 inquiries on the same day for a fairly normal missing persons case. But there is nothing normal about either of these cases. Two beautiful sisters are missing from Minnesota, one is an estranged heiress who has never touched her 8 figure fortune. More than enough reason for someone to kidnap her. When Mike Delaney, Madeline’s love interest and business partner heads to LA to search for his cousin’s missing girlfriend he finds out this case is a lot more than what it seems. Its downright dangerous. Will Mike and Madeline make it out of this case alive and with the 2 missing women or will the case finally be their last? I love these books and this one was no exception!

Girl Trap (Madeline Dawkins #3) by Cynthia Hamilton was a gripping suspenseful read that kept me reading.

The third book in this series, I was excited to get my hands on it. Now this is a continuation series, so I highly suggest reading the other two books or you will not be able to get the full impact of this story.

Going into this book I think I might have set the bar a little too high, as I very much enjoyed the other two books, but I found this one was a little off. Right away I got that feeling, there was a little back tracking with the character development, and well, at this point in the of story the MC should be solidified, and we should be seeing the results. It wasn’t like that for the whole book, as the second half was pretty great, it just felt like there was two stories in one. I also found that there was some filler, and over explaining that made the flow dull and a little, meh.

Outside of this, this book still had the same suspenseful feelings as the other two. The main detail was on point, and pulls you in. The overall plot is pulling, gripping and has you second guessing some details, making it fun and engaging. This book has a lot of potential, and I think it just needs some polish, and a little more direction, to make it pop like the other two. I will warn you this books does end on a sort of cliff hanger, so I am excited that there’s going to be another book.

So with all that said, this wasn’t a bad read and I did quite enjoy it. It was just lacking a little, and frankly I think it was more a bridge to get to that forth book. So to end, this books gets my recommendation and my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

-E.A. Walsh
