    Scary story about human trafficking and the toll on the children because of the despicable evil of the society. The story starts very simply as Victoria was trying to look into a single missing child. The story soon blows up as Victoria carries an in-depth analysis of the sex trafficking around the place. However, the story had a quick end and it almost seemed like the bad people got it easy, by the end of it. But overall, the story was powerful and though it was fiction, it seemed almost real.

    I preferred this one to the first in this series and the ending was perfect. Although it made me sniffy, it was spot on. There were fewer errors in this one, too. I'm really liking her stories and her characters. Though I'm torn as to which man Victoria needs to have in her life.....I think Ned would shade it for me over Dante as Ned's the real animal lover so wins out because of that for me. It will be interesting to see which side she comes down on in the end. Another lovely cover as well on t I preferred this one to the first in this series and the ending was perfect.

Scary what goes on. Yes, this is fiction but it is happening a lot out there and here as well. The parents of the girl kidnapped in this story were both horrible pieces of work, though I really liked young Sofia !! A few times fullstops were missed off, she wrote stationary and not stationery and once she put the apostrophe in the wrong place in Manning's which was annoying as she got it right every other time. She added a needless one in to-do's as well. However, this is a great improvement so an easy 5* and I look forward to the next instalment, if only to see what occurs with the new additions in Victoria's life !!

    Once again Ms. Ruff pulled me directly into the story. I didn't want to put the book down! The main focus of this book is sex trafficking young Eastern European girls, a serious, and important topic. I've heard of real stories similar to what happened with the girls, and like it did with the news, my heart broke for the characters in the book.

It's a huge Once again Ms. Ruff pulled me directly into the story. I didn't want to put the book down! The main focus of this book is sex trafficking young Eastern European girls, a serious, and important topic. I've heard of real stories similar to what happened with the girls, and like it did with the news, my heart broke for the characters in the book. It is something we don't pay enough attention to, how often do you think of sex trafficking when you don't see those fliers in the bathrooms? It's a huge business, using not only girls brought in from other countries, but also girls (and boys) from the United States. There should be more awareness, instead of being reminded by a great story. Agent Victoria Heslin is called in to consult on a missing person's case in Charlotte by her boss, Larry Murphy. Though missing less than 24 hours, a friend of his wife's asked for help in finding her daughter. Without meeting the family in question, we already know from the conversation between Larry and Victoria that the family is affluent and privileged, giving them access to early help from the FBI. However, the family is uncooperative, and almost hostile towards Victoria, even though they requested the FBI's assistance. This is theme one, and makes more sense throughout the book, though how it ties in is a huge suprise. In the course of her investigation, she comes across a large sex trafficking ring, theme two and the parallel main theme that runs the course along with the kidnapping. Again are the minor, "just reminding you", in the back of your mind, themes of Victoria's background and romance. As I thought it did from the first book, the slow moving, in the background romance adds to Victoria's character development. Unlike with her work, in the realm of romantic relationships she's uncertain, uncomfortable AND giddy with her feelings, and confused at times. So we continue to see her softer side develop in this book, and how it blends with her work persona. The candidness familiar in her position as a female agent is still apparent in her personal life, which can make for some awkward moments, but relatable. Her protective side is out in full force even before the sex trafficking ring is unveiled, giving a nod to her mother's kidnapping. The mention of both themes points to their continued development in further books. While Ned was a focus (sort of) in the first part of the book, Rivera took over in the second half. Ms. Ruff let us sit with some of Ned's behaviors, while putting the attention on the agent's progression. His feelings for Victoria are fleshed out and presented to the readers in a more open fashion. This is not the only way we see growth in the character. Throughout we are given repeated flashes of his bravery, his rage and disgust for the sex traffickers, and his empathy, fear, and concern for the girls caught in the ring. To be honest, Ned felt like a secondary character in light of Rivera's presence. I did feel that some of the tertiary characters were a little flat, for as often as they were used. There was very little backstory for any of them (which doesn't normally matter, as they aren't very involved in the story). For the secondary characters, we were given a slightly better understanding of, but some I couldn't decide if they were secondary or tertiary. It led to story lines that were left dangling. I am very much anticipating the next book! This series has definitely been added to my favorites! I was given an ARC of this book. All opinions are my own.

    I haven't read the first book in the Victoria Heslin series as it clearly stated this could read as standalone, and this is correct. I didn't feel like I missed out on anything overly important and this is very much a book in it's own right, definitely not a sequel. The story itself is rather hard-hitting. Graphic and violent in parts dealing with underage sex trafficking and kidnapping. The story moves along at a good pace and the villains are portrayed well.

There was one section where Ruff has attempted to humanise the ringleader, and that didn't wash with me and felt pretty out of place in the book. Ending was a little rushed but overall satisfactory. Audio was done well. Dillard has a nice, melodic voice to listen to. Usually her type of voice wouldn't go with this type of book but I think it worked. There are a lot of female protagonists in this book and she was very good at being to differentiate between them all. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request via Audioboom and have voluntarily left this review.

    When rich girls start to turn up dead, there are plenty of theories as to why. The parents are suspicious, everyone is suspicious.

Every time I thought I figured it out, there were twists that threw me for a loop. Characters are solid, and even the bad guys had enough character development that it was easy to understand their motives. Though this book deals with some heavy topics such as sex trafficking and corruption, it’s still an immersive read. Narration is good, especially with the accents. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Each book is a stand alone book but as FBI agent Victoria Heslin is such a strong capable character I think you will enjoy both books and I hope there is a lot more to come in this series. The story is split between characters so you know what is going on and despite knowing who the baddy is there is still a free twist in store.

With Victoria not sure who to trust, when they just miss finding the girls, she goes rouge and enlists help from sometimes partner Dante Rivera Can the pair find the girl in time or will it be another dead body with a brand on her back? I really like the narrator and think her voice helps to make this such a great book.

    I read this book as soon as it became available to me on August 4th! Jenifer Ruff has taken another monumental step forward in her thriller 'Pretty Little Girls', in terms of technical and creative storytelling. Her writing in Book 2 of this V Heslin set is grittier and more descriptive than it's ever been, and I couldn't put it down for long without wondering how Ruff was going to connect all the dots. The story she's created is also vibrant and expertly set with twists and more twists. The bes I read this book as soon as it became available to me on August 4th!

The story she's created is also vibrant and expertly set with twists and more twists. The best part about Book 2, in my opinion, is the continued maturation of her secondary characters and their connections to Agent Heslin. I like Heslin. She attracts most of the attention, especially with her animal-protection and philanthropic efforts, but it's the effect she has on the secondary characters around her, both male and female, that make her a character worth following. I look forward to reading more of Ruff's work and seeing more of her stories and characters take flight. Her level of sophistication as a storyteller is growing with every book she publishes.

    I read Book #1 in this series recently and really enjoyed it. When the 2nd book became available I jumped right in. I’m really glad I did. The subject matter (no spoilers) is uncomfortable and yet very timely. It was written well, without becoming gruesome. There were lots of twists and turns which are what make for a good mystery. The characters were skillfully crafted adding to both the suspense and fondness for the central characters. Lovers of a good mystery will not be disappointed!

    Yay- Agent Heslin is back! I love this character. She is tough but kind at the same time. I would want Agent Heslin in my corner. This book kept me guessing and biting my nails all the way through. What a peek inside the stomach -turning world of sex trafficking. The descriptions of this blight on society felt so real. I highly recommend this book and Jenifer Ruff’s first Victoria Heslin book -The Numbers Killer. I can’t wait for the next book.

    Short Take: Good things happen, people do their jobs and bad things have an end. :) A crime thriller, less macabre than the others I have read, but a page turner nevertheless. Agent Victoria Heslin and Agent Dante Rivera make a good team. The story is about a rich girl kidnapped out of a mall and a small blessing that helped her find her way back home. With enough adrenaline to push you to turn pages, the story is narrated with the right mix of empathy and grit to make it touch your heart.

    Great story about girls trafficked This started as a story about Emma a 14 year old girl from a wealthy home who is kidnapped to be trafficked. But the girl's voice we hear most is another girl, Sophia from Ukraine who has been a sex slave when Emma is brought in as the new girl. This is a story that happens right here in the USA. "Drugs are sold and gone. Girls can be sold over and over."

    I really like Victoria Heslin as a character and Stephanie Dillard voices her and the other characters with an excellent performance. The story is quite suspenseful and manages to obscure contrivances with enough realism to make it believable. This is a great series so far.

    "A salutary tale" All too real, I'm afraid, but the more times the horror of sex trafficking is exposed then the greater chance that something will get done about it. One message that rings loud and clear, every parent should protect their children from making the gullible mistakes many of these girls did. I like the Victoria character, but she was surrounded by male characters that were made of cardboard. I'm not sure you can sustain a series without a strong foil to the female sleuth.

    Although this deals with the serious topic of child sex trafficking, it keeps a level head throughout and treats the subject matter appropriately. It plays out mostly as expected but is still an interesting read. I originally only started reading this as it was free on Kindle, and I would read a page or two here or there, but after getting a bit into it, it was hard to put down which I guess is the mark of success for a book like this.

    This was a tough book to read. Human trafficking, rape, kidnapping - all the hot topics of the disgusting monsters that are hidden in plain sight. This book, although a work of fiction, hits on some very real and present dangers. Although the material is gut-wrenching, Ruff did an amazing job at laying out the scenes, the character building, and the overwhelming feeling of truth of the situation.

The writing is superbly done with a magnificent plot and story line that keeps you gripped to the last word. Characters are wonderfully fleshed out and realistic and make you want to read about them.

This is precisely what happened upon reading Jenifer Ruff’s latest psychological thriller, Pretty Little Girls. Agent Victoria Heslin and Agent Dante Rivera team up again to help find a missing privileged school girl in Charlotte, NC. The book delves head long into the unfathomable world of human trafficking providing a realistic view into those that run the rings, those that seek, finance and use the victims, and the frightened, young captives themselves. Ruff has the uncanny ability to see things through the eyes of a teenager, a middle aged cop, and a young FBI agent and then bring the characters to life.  They are skillfully portrayed to the point you can visualize them and hear their voices. You feel the fear, hopelessness and need for survival of the girls exploited and the anxiety and adrenaline of those on the elusive trail to rescue them. Human Trafficking is regularly in the news and I commend Ruff for her ability to expose the reality of this heinous crime by providing details based in truth, in a fictional setting from the perspective of her characters.  I received an ARC from the author and chose to post my honest thoughts.

    Pretty Little Girls was a great read by Jenifer Ruff. A prep school girl from an affluent family goes missing, which leads to many hidden secrets. Victoria is a FBI agent who is asked to assist the local police in investigating the disappearance. No matter how hard she tries, the girls resist her help. She uncovers a sec trafficking operation and Victori asks Dante, another agent, to help with the case. I really enjoyed reading this book and can’t wait to read more by Jenifer Ruff.

    Surviving A very enticing story about the rescue of young victims of sex trafficking. The horrors these young boys and girls suffer are unbelievable. This FBI agent gives her best to save these victims and hopefully catch the people responsible. I think stories like this help us to become more aware that this is very real and happening in our areas.

    Intriguing hard truths My first Jenifer Ruff book. I was pleased with the story progression but don’t know if I like Victoria Heslin yet. This is an incredible truth about trafficking... but most people don’t know it is going on. I hope more people become aware of the sobering amount of suffering going on. Overall, a very good story!

    Great page turner! This is my second Ruff book and I liked it every bit as the first. The first one had med student psychopath Brooke as the lead character, and this one had FBI agent Victoria as the lead. Both very different of course but both stories were hard to put down! One more chapter, one more chapter.....

She was actually seeking help and then let the help she sought out do their jobs...how refreshing! The characters seemed well thought out, although one kind of went over the top. Although this was a Victoria Heslin novel, a lot of characters got time in the spotlight, including the baddies. I rated this one 5 stars because I liked the characters (even the bad ones), I liked the story, even though it's about a sad situation and I liked how Victoria figured things out then got out of the way. Any disappointments? No, but one question/suggestion: will Garcia ever get his own novel?
