Gone Daddy Gone – Cheryl Bradshaw

Gone Daddy Gone – Cheryl Bradshaw


I was fortunate to receive this novel as an Advance Reader Copy, in exchange for an objective review.

College student Shelby McCoy is walking along a snowy park path, when she senses someone is behind her. She makes a panicked attempt to call her father, who doesn’t answer the phone, before an arm wraps around her neck and she is shot in the back and left to die. Beneath her body, a playing card, the ‘ten of hearts’, is found.

Private Investigator Sloane Monroe is with Shelby’s father, Police Chief Cade McCoy, when he receives word that his daughter has been killed. In the midst of attempting a marriage proposal to Sloane, he drops what he’s doing and the couple heads to Utah, to learn what they can of the investigation. Shortly thereafter, Cade, too, is shot, and a ‘jack of hearts’ card is left at the scene.

As Cade fights for his life, Sloane and Utah law enforcement attempt to solve the killings, but clues dry up, and potential suspects are alibied. Then a third attempt takes place, and Sloane begins to suspect, it may not be Cade for whom the shooter is revenging a wrong, but Sloane herself. But whom? And why?

Detectives review Sloane’s old case files, looking for answers, when yet another person goes missing, this one also near and dear to Sloane’s heart. But will she find the answers in time??

The book captures your interest in the first few paragraphs and will keep you engrossed until the very last page! I read this cover to cover in one sitting as it was just too good to put down! I have read all the Sloane Monroe novels, and I eagerly await more! Great, easy read!!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
