Publisher's Summary

Miss Polly had a dolly. A beautiful daughter that she called her Baby Doll. Every day she dressed her in dresses and brushed her hair before they went outside to show off to the neighbors. On the playground one day her Baby Doll talked to a boy, and for one unforgivable second, Miss Polly let herself be distracted by a woman telling her how adorable she thought her daughter was. When Miss Polly finally turned to look for her Baby Doll, she was gone.

Many years later Emma Frost hears about the disappearance of the little girl and learns that she is not the only one to have gone missing from Fanoe Island back in the nineties. As she digs deeper into the story, she soon finds herself entangled in a web of strange and very disturbing events. Miss Polly had a Dolly is a spine-chilling Scandinavian mystery novel from the Internationally Bestselling author Willow Rose. It is the second novel in her bestselling Emma Frost-series and is followed by Run, run as fast as you can.

The narrator was awful.

I don't think I would read another book that had this narrator. she only had two different sentence inflexions...grinding on the nerves.

audible version

The narrator sounded like she was reading to a group of second graders. Story was good, though.

This one really had me shivering!!

Willow Rose is definitely the Queen of Scream! This book will make you shiver and shake. The twists and turns are incredible. The narrator did a marvelous job with this one--it really shook me up!

Very unusual

I thought this would be more like a detective novel. It was more like a satire. Few of the main characters did not seem like they accepted things that were going on were real. Like Sofia and her father.

Miss Polly had a Dolly

This is the second book in the series and I really enjoyed the story, getting to know more about Emma Frost and her family too. The book has many twists and turns. The narration is good.

This won't be everybody's cup of tea.

First, a caveat: this book isn't for everybody. There is a heavy dose of human trafficking and child abuse. Graphic child abuse. You have been warned. Now, on the story and what I liked. I enjoyed Victor's arc, and how his undiagnosed condition might be (and quite certainly is) a paranormal ability. I liked how convoluted and complex the plot was. I liked how all the threads come together at the end. What I didn't like was the probably non-intentional association between been transgender and been a sadistic, out-of-his-head killer. And the fact that said killer remember me a lot to the one on 'The Silence of the Lambs' Sarah Feenah does a competent job with the narration.
