Eighteen years ago, Laney Thompson's eight year old sister went missing. After an extensive FBI investigation with no clue but a large amount of Gracie's blood, the case went cold. But as she was on playground duty one day, Laney found her sister's backpack - just the way her sister had it all those years ago. She runs hysterically, first to her eight year old daughter, then to the principle, her boss,

I liked her writing and the storyline, it was well done. One thing did disturb me though. At one point the heroine says she forgives God. I realize people often blame God for things that go wrong in their life. But when you come to an understanding of what's really going on, I wouldn't think you would say you forgive God, instead, I would hope you would come to the understanding that you need to ask forgiveness for blaming God when He's not the one to blame.

This was a new to me author. And I really enjoyed this book! While parts of the plot were slightly predictable many things surprised me! I really liked the characters, Laney and Noah were great and Laney's daughter Briana was adorable!

Overall, this was a really nice suspense story, and while it didn't quite make my favorites shelf, Calculated Revenge was a story that definitely kept me flipping pages!
I recommend it! :-)

Laney Thompson is a special education teacher in Cottonwood Grove Minnesota. She finds a backpack on the playground during recess. It belonged to her sister, Grace, who was abducted eighteen years ago. Laney blames herself for not watching her autistic sister.
Noah Ryder, the school principal, used to be a private investigator. He has always been attracted to Laney, but is afraid to love again because his fiancée was killed in a FBI investigation and he blames himself for her death.

Great suspense.
I really loved this book. It had a great pace, and only told the reader what they needed to know in order to keep moving, but not so much that you guessed that was about to happen until it was already well under way! Great characters and lovable lead characters <3 Can't wait to read more from Ms. Nelson!
Laney Thompson's autistic sister was abducted and killed when she was eight. It is now 18 years later and the killer is back taunting Laney and threatening her daughter. School principal Noah Ryder who happens to be a former PI ends up helping Laney find who is threatening her and who killed her sister.
This love inspired book was very relaxing. Laney and Noah had faith in themselves and each other to get through their so-called guilt of doings in their past. They trusted each other and that is why their mystery was solved.
really good book, great summer read!!
