"Pursued" by Lisa Harris

About this book:

  “Nikki Boyd's flight into Nashville was routine—up until the crash landing at the airport.
  When the dust settles, Nikki discovers that the woman who had been seated next to her on the plane is missing—and no one will admit she was ever there. When she learns that Erika Hamilton had been flying to Nashville with an air marshal as a key witness in an upcoming grand jury trial, Nikki wonders if her disappearance from the crash site means she’s running from trouble—or straight into it. Before Nikki can even see her family, she and her team are pulled into a missing persons case where the motives are as unclear as the suspects.”

{OHS girls can add up to a full star for interest in law enforcement &/or murder mysteries.}
Wow. What a crazy read. This was a highly anticipated read for me after the ending of the last book. I've waited nearly a year to get my hands on this one. And oh my goodness, this did not disappoint for my suspense-lovin' heart. Oh. This was just what I was expecting and more.
Nikki is back and just as awesome as ever. I loved all the twists and turns of this third book. Shockingly my heart wasn't racing as much as I thought it would be, but I did get completely involved into the plot and was quite literally pouting when it was over.
I also have to take a moment and just swoon over how this cover looks with the previous two books cover. And let's not get me started on the spines. #AllTheHeartEyes
Now that I know the news about the fourth book in the series about Nikki's sister. I’m going to say it's going to be intense, I'm calling it now.

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
*I received this book for free from the Publisher (Revell) for this honest review.
