NELSON, JILL ELIZABETH
It’s been eighteen years since Laney Thompson’s sister was abducted and killed, but the pain Laney feels has never faded. And now the murderer is back, taunting Laney with mementos of her sister and threatening Laney’s young daughter. School principal Noah Ryder is her best hope for protecting her daughter—if she can convince the former investigator to take the case. As the threats accelerate, a string of clues leads Laney to uncover old secrets. Unless Noah steps in with his expertise, how can she piece together the puzzle before her child—like her sister—is lost to a killer’s revenge?
NELSON'S DISTINCTIVE VOICE KEEPS THIS LOVE INSPIRED SUSPENSE BOOK FRESH. THE MYSTERY IS SOUND AND KEPT ME GUESSING RIGHT TO THE END -- I WAS HALF RIGHT LOL. THE CONNECTION BETWEEN LANEY AND NOAH IS IMMEDIATE AND THE ROMANTIC DEVELOPMENT DOESN'T TAKE A BACK SEAT TO THE SUSPENSEFUL PLOT. RATHER, THEY MIRROR EACH OTHER AND GROW TO EQUALLY PAGE-TURNING CONCLUSIONS. I THINK NELSON MANAGED TO PACK A LOT INTO THIS SHORTER WORD COUNT LINE AND CALCULATED REVENGE LEFT ME A HAPPY AND SATISFIED READER.
