SO GOOD!! Ends on such a cliff hanger! I'm dying to read #6 in this series but I haven't read the others so I'm going back and starting at #1. Such a good series! I love the Louisiana bayou ambiance. It just fits perfectly!
This is the 5th book in the 'Without A Trace Series." Clint has been taking care of his young niece since (Sarah) her mother left and seems to have vanished without a trace.

Mandy, is new in town and needs a fresh start to life. She is able to convince Clint to hire her as a Nanny. Although, Clint senses she is hiding a secret, he cannot help but be drawn to her.

This was a good read, it kept me wanting more. I look forward to reading the 6th part (Her Last Chance) to see what's in store for Sar

Mandy shows up in Loomis trying to escape an abusive relationship. She finds Clint and becomes Sarah's nanny to help out. Clint nominates her for the Mother of the Year contest, of which many serious events have happened.
(my least favorite book in the series, who would let a complete stranger take care of a child? not a very realistic storyline)

the 5th book in the Without A Trace series.

Clint has been taking care of his niece, Sarah, since his sister Leah disappeared 4 months ago.

Mandy needs a job so she can move on again before her ex- boyfriend finds her.

Mandy convinces Clint to hire her as Sarah's nanny.

Great read, can't wait to finish the last book in this series to see how it all comes together.

This was THE BEST love Inspired Suspence I think I have ever read! A great plot beautifully writen and to be honest I was looking over my shoulder the whole time i was reading I jumped at every little sound, because it was so real... so amazing! If I could give it ten stars I would!
I thought this was a good book! Nice to see and town embrace someone that needed them, even if they didn't realize just how much they were needed. the world would be such a better place if all towns were as welcoming.
