Shelves: mystery, romance
This was hard to read... I have to wonder if writing this barely took an effort. The characters weren't very developed, the romance was instant (which of course is okay as this is a love inspired book) and the killer is over the top evil. The girl was completely perfect (she was no longer chunky, but had perfect beautiful curves, long red hair, long lashes, and so on) the guy was perfectly imperfect (a bad guy look, with a hooded gaze, leather jacket, powerful muscles and abs) and yeah, they are ...more

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.

Considering my dislike of unresolved endings, I am

Shelby Mason is Leah's best friend. Leah has been missing for over 3 months only days after her husbands murder.

Patrick Rivers who looked like the bad boy people thought he was has returned to Loomis after the death of his step dad. The will said he needed to come home to go through everything himself if he wanted the money. He did want the money to buy his own business.

Shelby was no longer the overweight girl Patrick remembered from 10 years before but a beautiful woman. Patrick just wanted to

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.
