What is this book about?
When librarian Laura Griffith’s sixteen-year-old sister disappears on a frigid February day, leaving only a brief note behind, Laura resolves to do whatever it takes to track down the runaway teen. That includes recruiting ATF agent turned private investigator James Devlin to help. But the deeper he digs, the more he begins to suspect that something sinister is at work in the girl’s disappearance. And the closer he gets to uncovering the truth, the clearer it becomes that the situation isn’t just dangerous–it’s deadly.
A deeply troubled and evil villain made this story very suspenseful. Even though there was romance, it felt a little forced for me. I enjoyed the methodical way that Dev went about locating Laura’s sister.
I had a lot of trouble connecting with Laura and I’m not sure why. I skimmed much of her interaction with Dev. The viewpoints from the villain and the teen were more intriguing to me.
The villain was just creepy. I didn’t like that, but good overcoming evil was much sweeter because of it.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
It was a page turner because I had to find out how the villain would be defeated.
What I didn’t like about this book:
I didn’t connect with Laura and skimmed much of her parts.
Would I recommend this book to others? Maybe. It was definitely suspenseful. Even though I didn’t care for Laura, others might feel different. This is the second book of the series. I can be read as a standalone even though characters from the first book show up.
