AN APPALLING ACT OF VIOLENCE AND AN UNSOLVED DOUBLE MURDER.
SMALL-TOWN INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER, SHELBY DAY, IS DETERMINED TO HUNT A KILLER.
As her search draws closer to uncovering the twisted truth, she begins receiving ominous warnings to stay quiet and drop the story. The young journalist is in danger. Her cameraman and best friend, a person with his own secret past, says he wants to protect her. But Shelby is headstrong and dodging anything that could lead to love. She can’t allow anyone to distract her as she fights for the two women who deserve justice.
She never expects along the way she’ll have to stop and save herself.
Ticktock… If Shelby doesn’t solve the crime soon, she’ll become the killer’s next victim.
“Lost Girl is a compulsive thrill-ride that reads as if it’s been pulled straight from the headlines. Kammier’s journalism background brings undeniable authenticity to a novel that has it all– a love story, a murder mystery, and a real-life introduction into the distinctive world of television news.”
-CAROLINE MITCHELL, New York Times best-selling author

Shelby Day is the driving force of the entire story. From the beginning and throughout the book, the reader unravels the complexity of her character. She comes from a wealthy family but she drops everything and moves to a small town where nobody knows her. She's an investigative journalist and the town's two murders are her lucky break, her chance to take her career to the next level. She suffers from PTSD but nontheless, she pushes herself in order to find out who the killer is. The clock is now ticking for her, because the killer is free and Shelby's life is in danger.
Her loyal friend Jack, is always there for her and with a killer on the loose, he wants to protect and keep her safe, but Shelby is independent and strong minded. As a result, she pushes him away, physically and mentally. She believes that any feelings and emotions come in the way of her research for the truth.
