It’s Christmas time and instead of planning a wonderful Christmas party for the local kids, Mac is trying to find a lost boy!
Lost Voices is book 3 in the Storm Voices series and I picked this one because it was set during Christmas. If you haven’t read this series before Mackenzie was struck by lightening and ever since that she can sometimes hear voices. This time the voice was of what appeared to be a loving mother but the truth was that it was something more sinister.
The book starts off sweet enough, Mac is at her local club meeting discussing their plans for a Christmas party for their community’s children. This year they wanted to do something special and different, so they went outside to the playground to get the lay of the land. That was when Mac heard a voice in her head of a mother telling her child that she loved him. Which if you have read this series, that is NOT the kind of voices she normally hears, but maybe there is a first for everything? Right? Right?! Well, no, not right because it turns out that a little boy has gone missing and she is the key to helping police find him.
As usual Williams does a fantastic job spinning a story that will keep you guessing. I had an idea who the kidnapper was but not right away. I love that about her books! It takes time for you to figure out the mystery. I loved seeing Mac slowly come into her abilities. In book one she was given the ability to hear voices, but usually one voice not two like in this book. Having her hear two voices added an additional layer of drama to the book. It really was a great way to let you know that the boy was okay and that the kidnapper was slowly losing it.
Overall, I really enjoyed the book! I thought it was fun to see a tropical Christmas (jet skiing elves anyone) and Mac’s spirit of giving. It seemed like Christmas took a tiny bit of a back seat in this book so I was very happy to get to read about the kids enjoying the Christmas celebration. While to book was more cozy mystery and less Christmas mystery, I really enjoyed it. It was a quick read and the ending really just blew me away! I did not think that we would get to meet that final character but I was so happy we did!
