Portrait of Vengeance
This post contains affiliate links.
An unsolved case. A tempest of memories. The future’s at stake—and time is running out...
Gwen Marcey has done a good job of keeping the pain of her past boxed up. But as she investigates the case of a missing child in Lapwai, Idaho, details keep surfacing that are eerily similar to her childhood traumas. She doesn’t believe in coincidences. So what’s going on here?
No one knows more about the impact of the past than the Nez Perce people of Lapwai. Gwen finds herself an unwelcome visitor to some, making her investigation even more difficult. The questions keep piling up, but answers are slow in coming—and the clock is ticking for a missing little girl. Meanwhile, her ex-husband back home is threatening to take sole custody of their daughter.
As Gwen’s past and present collide, she’s in a desperate race for the truth. Because only truth will ensure she still has a future.
My thoughts: While I didn't read the first book in this series, I have since read the rest of the books in it. I felt like this one had a little different feel to it, since in it we learn a bit more about Gwen and her past (which I don't remember much of it coming up in the other books). Even though this book has a different feel to it, I thought that the story was well written and had a lot going on. Not only is Gwen trying to figure out the current mystery of the missing child, she is also struggling with the feeling that the case is linked to her past in some way. This is a series that needs to be read in order, since the Gwen develops along the way as a character. I highly recommend picking up this series!
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
