Without a Trace
Book 4

In this book, we meet Leah's best friend who is also a librarian. Town bad boy, Patrick Rivers, returns after his step-father dies and requests he returns to settle his estate. Patrick was accused of rape ten years ago, and the accuser and witness is still part of Loomis. Meanwhile, somebody is after Shelby.

I really enjoyed watching Patrick and Shelby get together. I enjoyed the bad boy on a motorcycle turn into a big teddy bear and jump to Shelby's protection. The story sur
I read book 3 in this series out of turn, not knowing that it belonged in a series; so, I was privy to "spoilers" when I began to read the first two books. Fortunately, there was plenty to hold my interest, anyway. Those books did have their own stand-alone plots as well as the elements that are woven into the series as a whole. Now, I am where I should be reading in the series and I'm happy not to know what's going to happen as the plot unfolds.

Considering my dislike of unresolved endings, I am

I really liked the fast pace story, though the ending left me going...."WHAT?!" a quick read with a good characters. I didn't realize it was part of series (this one is number 4). i have read a couple others in the series but now i am rereading in order.
Ok so I had no idea this was part of a series. Now I want to read the rest of the books. This is a VERY quick read, but it was interesting enough at the end that I wanted to know more.
Part of the "Without a Trace" story line, centering around Shelby Mason and Patrick Rivers, a man who left town under a cloud of suspicion during college.
Good suspense. I enjoyed the story and didn't put the book down till I finished it. Clean Christian, easy to read book!
