The Girls Across the Bay is the first novel in the Knox and Sheppard series by Emerald O’ Brien. This is my first novel by this author.
I really enjoyed this mystery novel involving two girls that are in foster care and are separated but meet again as adults because of their careers. It made me curious how much the two had changed as the years passed and how much the past affected their lives. The author does an amazing job of weaving the past and present giving the reader just enough information without spoiling too much and still leaving some questions to be answered.
I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this novel or not. Sure it had some flaws such as some things didn’t feel all that realistic but it didn’t take away from the story just because some things were described or in depth.
I loved the characters as well as the twists and turns. I don’t want to give away too much.
This a series I look forward to continuing.
