Gone Without a Trace
It's been more than two years since homicide detective Livy Reynolds's cousin disappeared from Logan Point. Unlike most people in her hometown, Livy has never believed that Robyn left voluntarily. When Dallas private investigator Alex Jennings contacts Livy concerning a missing senator's daughter who was last seen in Logan Point, she notices eerie similarities between the two disappearances. But with self-doubt plaguing her and an almost instant dislike of Jennings, Livy is finding this investigation an uphill battle. With her future in law enforcement on the line, can she find a way to work with a man who is her polar opposite?
My thoughts: I don't believe I have read any of Patricia Bradley's mysteries before. I was missing out! I love that this mystery had so much going on, with there being a continuing mystery of what happened to Livy's cousin, Robyn, and how that ties into the new case of another missing waitress in the area. Readers will keep guessing about what is really going on until the last chapter!
I like that this story is more than just a great mystery; there is plenty of back story and character development going on, which I appreciate. I also really appreciated that the author communicated that both of the lead characters are attractive without making it just another book about the superficial. She focuses more on personality traits draw these two together, rather than just going on about how much they like the others looks.
Now, I need to go back and read the first two books in the series! While it probably would of helped to read them first, this book does work well as a stand alone book. And, I feel like only a few things were given away about the previous two stories, so I can go back and read them.
I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
