Easy one of my all time favorite authors. I don't think i've ever read a book by Anna Smith that I haven't seriously enjoyed. 
A gripping fast paced read, full of turns and excitement. This book really will keep you on the edge of your seat. I couldn't put this down once i'd started it, but then as I got to the end, i really didn't want it to finish. 

With her usual high standard of writing Anna Smith intoduces us to Billie Carlson. I can see this is going to be a series of books to rival her others. The Rosie Gilmore series is still my all time favourite. 

An easy 5 star read. fast paced and fresh. you will not be disappointed.

Billie is an ex cop and now a private Investigator. She rakes on a job for Jackie while baby has been kidnapped by Ruthless villains. It unravels that not only are they kidnappers they're also involved in porn, drugs and snuff films and they think Jackie has something of theirs. Billie gets into all sorts of trouble trying to get Jackie's baby back and has to draft in help from equally naughty villains. This book has plenty of action and was a great read!

Firstly thank you to Net Halley for granting me this book in exchange of an honest review.  New author to me and although I enjoyed the style of writing after a few chapters gave up mainly because it was so far fetched in the fact that the main character was an ex cop but had so many contacts in the force that enabled her to gain inside information .  Not for me I’m afraid

I really enjoy works by this author and I am delighted to meet a new character. Billie is an ex police officer and now a private investigator. She is smart, tough and full of determination. I loved the characterisation and the Glasgow setting, with a plot filled with drama and tension. The plot was believable and moved at a fast pace centred around the Glasgow criminal fraternity. It's a 5* solid read and I would highly recommend it. Thanks to Net Galley for my ARC.

Billie Carlson #1

Billie Carlson left the police force under a cloud. Once a promising young officer, she now works as a private investigator, rooting out insurance scams and spying on cheating spouses. One morning a distraught young woman comes into her office saying that her baby had been stolen, Her story seems unbelievable, yet something about her makes Billie want to help - Billie knows what it's like to lose someone too. But to get to the bottom of this case, Billie must rattle some dangerous cages and rely on some ols police friends for inside help.

This story is set in Glasgow. Even though her story sounds unbelievable, private investigator Billie Carlson takes on her case and some dangerous people along the way. This is a well written and thought out novel. It's one rollercoaster read I didn't want to put down. Billie is determined to get the woman's baby back and she will stop at nothing to achieve this. It's not always easy to read, but it's realistic. The story is full of action and lots of believable characters. I can't wait to read more books in this new series.

I would like to thank #NetGalley #QuercusBooks and the author #AnnaSmith for my ARC of #UntilIFindYou in exchange for an honest review.

Ex-police officer Billie Carlson is now a private investigator based in Glasgow.  A distraught woman calls at her office asking for help in finding her missing child daughter who was taken from the back seat of her car after she was involved in an accident.  Billie feels an instant rapport with her as she too lost a child, her son Lucas, who was taken by her ex-husband.  If she’s to help the woman Billie will need assistance from old police colleagues as well as those criminals she helped put behind bars. 

‘Until I Find You’ is an exciting, dramatic and nail-biting thriller that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading.  I love the character of Billie who’s feisty, hard-working, and who will go to any length to get a just conclusion for her clients.  This is an exceptionally well-written and involving thriller that’s had me gripped from the first page to the last, and if this is the first in a new series featuring Billie Carlson I’ll be eagerly awaiting the next one.  

My thanks to Quercus Books and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read this thriller in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Honestly, if Anna Smith wrote a dictionary, she’d make it thrilling!! To date, I’ve read each and every one of her books and I’ve loved them all. 
I’m hoping this new book is the start of a new series, because I’m bursting to know what’s in store next for Billie Carson. 
This is what’s known as a page turner, once I started it was all I could think of.

The title seemed familiar, but as it appeared as a new book, I didn’t bother to check what I had read over the past few months when two books a week have been the norm. However, after a few pages, the story became familiar, too familiar, and a check did reveal that the pages had been turned before, with a review done.
This is what I wrote.
Having taken to the exploits of Rosie Gilmour some time ago, this latest offering from Anna Smith introduced me to a new female who walked the dark and grim streets of Glasgow and adding yet another ‘must follow’ character to the list.
A fast moving story, as city life often is, Anna Smith is up there with the best of Scottish crime fiction writers.
Recommend reading.
