Lisa Harris is a name to watch in romantic suspense. This series has been full of suspense, danger and interesting plot twists. The story drew me in immediately and kept me turning pages late into the night. I love the way the romance is building up slowly over the series, feeling so natural under the circumstances. There was a great cast of supporting characters and I love the author’s writing voice. I thought she did an excellent job with the investigative side of the story.
Plot: Nikki Boyd usually investigates missing persons, but when bodies turn up and the homeowners are missing, she and her partner Jack are called in for the case. When the investigation leads to her friend Tyler’s boat, Nikki has to put aside her personal life. Soon it becomes clear that no one is safe with the killer on the loose. It’s up to Nikki to solve the case before her friend is killed.
Characters: Nikki Boyd is a detective specializing in missing persons case, driven by the fact her own sister’s case is still unsolved. After serving in the military, Tyler is still trying to put his life back together after his wife’s death. Nikki’s a great friend to Tyler and his son, Liam and the connection between them was a great part of the story.
Recommendation: I’d highly recommend this series to fans of Lynnette Eason, Dee Henderson or Irene Hannon’s romantic suspense. Missing is the second book in the Nikki Boyd Files, and it can stand alone, but I’d recommend reading Vendetta first, as it’s a great introduction to the characters and their relationship. While the mystery is this story is fully resolved, there are some story threads that will be continued in the following book(s).
Rating: 5/5 stars
