GIVEAWAY

HARRIS, LISA
MISSING

Nikki Boyd Enters the Deadly World of Counterfeit Drugs to Find a Missing Woman

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.

Christy Award-winning and bestselling author Lisa Harris puts readers right into the action in this fast-paced thriller that will have them turning pages long into the night.

My Review:

Suspend breathing for the duration of this read. You'll need an oxygen mask to make it through. Page-turning suspense delivered in television crime drama format. This series reminds me of Without a Trace. If you remember that show you have a good idea of what to expect when you open the pages of this book. A tight-knit team with occasional humorous banter to break the tension. The inner workings of  a time-sensitive missing persons case. And so many clues and suspects to sort through! Harris takes us along on Nikki's investigation and it's a mesmerizing journey.

But this isn't all business -- her romance with a long time friend is heating up. (If you read Vendetta, you'll remember Tyler. Sigh.) But taking that uncertain leap from friendship to romance is terrifying and Harris captures Nikki's inner turmoil as she wrestles with a myriad of emotions. Tyler and Nikki share a special bond and the tenderness and longing between them is so fragile and sweet and utterly swoonworthy. But complicated. The kind of romantical angst sure to stir a reader's sensitive emotions.

And there is also a secondary suspense thread that carries through each book in the series as she continues to search for her sister who went missing a decade earlier. So, yes, this is book two in The Nikki Boyd Files series but the author does a great job of catching readers up to speed so you could read it as a standalone. But Vendetta is really, really, really good so I recommend reading it too!

Intense. Nail-biting. A real page-turner that is sure to enthrall the discerning romantic suspense aficionado.

  12. I really like slow burn romances and when the romance is spread over a few books, it keeps me reading a series. I like suspense as long as there's a hint of romance (and light on serial killers! :-) ) tlhcoupon(at)hotmail(dot)com
