Without a Trace is a good mystery that featured search-and-rescue dogs, which is a neat thing I haven't seen much in fiction. I was disappointed that there was heavy emphasis on affairs, which is why I can't give this book five stars. A solid mystery with interesting characters. No expletives that I noticed, which was nice.

Actually, as the book progressed the religion/Christianity stuff got a bit pushy for me. I have my beliefs, don't really enjoy bible study in my fiction reading.

Great read! I loved the characters, and loved the interaction between then. The story of how Bree searches for her son was touching and I cried at the end.
You'll love it! Can't wait to read the next one.
Then came the ending. Things were tied up nicely, a little too nicely. Everyone (except the bad guy) was happy, the problems were solved, and new bonds were created. So it l ...more
