"Missing" by Lisa Harris

About this book:

  “Nikki Boyd isn't usually called in on homicides; her forte is missing persons. But when a case with two murdered and two missing pops up on a quiet suburban street, she's ready to start the investigation and find missing homeowners Mac and Lucy Hudson. When the first clues lead her to the boat of her friend Tyler Grant--and another dead body--Nikki must untangle what ties Tyler to the Hudsons. The clues pull her into a deadly maze of counterfeit drugs and a killer who will stop at nothing to silence anyone who threatens his business--including Nikki.”

My personal Rating-
{Add ½ star for girls who have read the previous book in the series and/or enjoy murder mysteries.}
Intense suspense is what Lisa Harris does best & this novel shows her talent well. I was already excited to read the sequel to “Vendetta”, but by the first paragraph I was completely locked in. (The first paragraph is so beautiful written, y’all!) This book was wonderfully suspenseful and I oh-so enjoyed it. Now, don’t get me wrong, I would have liked a bit more Spiritual Content and that last chapter was a bit rushed (but I can see it being realistic), and since the plot was about homicides there was a lot of deaths (six by page sixty-two!), I still really enjoyed this book and am eagerly waiting for Spring of 2017 for the next Nikki Boyd file!

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
