Um… wow! Where to start... where to start. Okay… let’s start with the 10 great things you know you can always count on in a Detective Josie Quinn novel: (and, yes, I’m going to try this without spoiling anything)
1. Lisa Regan’s writing is superb
2. Your heart will race, jump, sink and cry more than once while reading
3. Noah is mouthwatering… and very sweet (you have to love him for the way he loves Josie)
4. Gretchen is cool
5. Working in the same town you grew up in has its advantages and disadvantages
6. Josie can function on little to no sleep
7. Josie is a badass and so is her grandma
8. Josie finds all the danger
9. Josie saves the day and gets the bad guy every.damn.time.
10. You will want to turn back to page one and start again once you’re finished
I think this one might be my favorite. I always say this when I finish one of these books, but I think it might be more true this time. Save Her Soul is so raw and so emotional. At one point, I had to stop reading because I couldn’t see the words through my tears. Josie is like an old friend to me now, everything that affects her, affects me—and damn—did it affect me this time. I’m torn between wanting Josie to start therapy and not wanting her to start therapy. If she solves all of her emotional problems, what will Lisa have to write about? But at the same time, I want to see her work through all those problems. Thankfully, there are more books to come!
Save her Soul is absolutely superb. Knowing that Lisa Regan wrote this during a pandemic makes me love it more. It couldn’t have been easy, especially with the emotions involved. I feel like Lisa really poured her heart into this book, and it shows. In this one, we see Josie as an insecure young woman, but we also see the growth and wisdom of an old soul. Watching her fight to overcome her past, forgive a bully who tortured her in high school, and show some good solid empathy and compassion for that same bully was awe-inspiring. Seeing her grip so tightly to the few remarkable and beautiful people who supported her in her youth, and then feeling the letdown or the loss of them when new things come to light…ugh! And I can’t share it because I’ll spoil the book for you. Just know, it’s THAT GOOD. Everything about this book is so freaking good.
Save Her Soul is an awe-inspiring, extraordinary read that will make you feel angry one minute and heartbroken the next. It has all the feels AND all the action you could possibly want in a summer read!
