Carnival of Dead Girls
by Carissa Ann Lynch
Flockdale Files Book #3
Genre: Thriller
Publisher: Limitless Publishing

Nothing interesting happens in the podunk town of Lamison Point—until a freak show rolls through…


When a traveling carnival stops in the sleepy countryside, sixteen-year-old Josie Crowley is psyched to go with her new friend, Freya. But what started out as a fun-filled night of games, candied apples, and ferris wheel rides quickly spirals into a gut-wrenching encounter with one of the carnival attractions.


Once the excitement is over, Lamison is missing one of its residents…


When Freya is nowhere to be found, Josie suspects the carnival has something to do with her disappearance. Her goal to track down the elusive show leads to an alarming revelation—there is no record of it ever existing. And as she digs deeper, Josie is led to a mysterious town with a tainted past—Flocksdale.


Buried in Flocksdale’s sick, twisted history is where Josie may find the truth…


Creepy clowns, disfigured freaks, and a terrifying haunted house are the least of Josie’s problems…now she has to deal with a group of real-life monsters, otherwise known as the evil Garrett family and new, rising generation of hell-bound freaks.


If Josie is pulled into their world, she may become another member of a carnival of dead girls, where she goes in, and never comes out…

A Five Star Series
I usually don’t write full length reviews since I rarely get the time to read the book but as I read the series previously I thought I’d try my hand at writing one.
Ok, I’ll start by saying that the genre isn’t one I generally read and first person isn’t usually my cup of tea but the author really nailed it.
Lynch puts you in the front seat on an old rickety rollercoaster full of more twists and turns than a labyrinth.
I devoured book 1 and 2 in one day, happy that it was daylight and not right before bed and then waited (somewhat impatiently I might add) for book 3 which by then I’d learned not to trust anyone and questioned everyone’s motives and was still surprised.
The Flocksdale Files Series is dark and gripping. A real page turner.  A series you definitely don’t want to miss. I do advise reading them in order as some details carry on throughout the series.
Now that’s all been said, onto the Carnival of Dead Girls.
Josie is a teenage girl, looking to find her place in the world, her mum’s in prison and her father has remarried a woman she doesn’t get along with. She experiments with her look and tries to get approval from her only friend, Freya who isn’t exactly friendly or stable.
When Freya goes missing, despite her so-called friend being mean to her, Josie investigates her disappearance with leads her to a small, creepy town called Flocksdale.
Who can Josie trust? Will she find Freya before it’s too late? Will she get out alive?
Chilling, action packed and fear enducing. Questions are raised and gruesome answers are provided.
The ending was sad for me, yet also finished the series off wonderfully.
Bring on Cheerleading Can Be Murder! I’m game.

Besides my family, my greatest love in life is books. Reading them, writing them, holding them, smelling them…well, you get the idea. I’ve always loved to read, and some of my earliest childhood memories are me, tucked away in my room, lost in a good book. I received a five dollar allowance each week, and I always — always — spent it on books. My love affair with writing started early, but it mostly involved journaling and writing silly poems. Several years ago, I didn’t have a book to read so I decided on a whim to write my own story, something I’d like to read. It turned out to be harder than I thought, but from that point on I was hooked. My first and second books were released by Sarah Book Publishing: This Is Not About Love and Grayson’s Ridge. I’m a total genre-hopper. Basically, I like to write what I like to read: a little bit of everything! I reside in Floyds Knobs, Indiana with my husband, three children, and massive collection of books. I have a degree in psychology and worked as a counselor.
