“A dark and sexy thriller from a sensational new voice. Deanna Madden, aka Jessica Reilly, hasn’t touched another person in three years. She hasn’t left her apartment. She makes money from performing to webcams on a sex site, where her clients pay $6.99 a minute for her time. She’s doing alright. The dollars are piling up in the bank. She’s the number 3 model on cams.com. And she hasn’t killed anyone for years. But when Deanna sees on the news that a little girl called Annie has gone missing, the story rattles her carefully ordered world. It’s uncomfortably similar to the dark fantasy of one of her most disturbing online clients. She’s convinced he’s responsible for the girl’s abduction – but no one will listen to her. So, after three years, Deanna finally leaves the apartment. And this is what happens…” (Synopsis taken from Goodreads)

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.
The Girl in 6E is one of those books that completely pulls you in and doesn’t let you go until you’ve read the last page. I flew through this book really quickly because I just wanted to know what would happen next. The main character, Deanna, was great to read about. As a reader I was presented with a complex character but I didn’t judge her. I just wanted to know more about her as a person and her story. Some of the other characters in the book do require more development but this didn’t alter my enjoyment of the story in a negative way.
As the synopsis reveals, a young girl called Annie disappears and Deanna feels compelled to find her. I found that once Annie’s character/plot started to have more of an impact on the story that the overall plot became a bit rushed. A lot of the things that happen regarding that particular storyline felt too convenient. There is a small amount of romance in the book. The love interest, however, did feel a bit unbelievable as a character as did his ability to accept Deanna’s dark side.
Overall, I really did enjoy this book and I’m keen to discover what happens next. The Girl in 6E is a definite page-turner. If you’re looking for a well paced mystery and a quick and exciting read then this book could be the one for you.
