This was a good story with a couple of twists and surprises. I had a little trouble with the main character a few times. She seemed a bit shallow and selfish. There was action and mystery, which made it a good read.

Thanks to the author for a digital ARC.

Wherever Eva Rae goes, there’s always an intriguing mystery. This one time, it’s even more difficult than usual. There’s no way to stop reading until the end. Don’t miss out once it’s released.

Willow Rose is a master at giving us heart pounding thrillers. Eva Rae is back with an edge of your seat case that her boyfriend, Matt, doesn't want her to take because she is pregnant. This is a well written story with twists that you won't see coming. The ending is very unexpected. I would highly recommend this book. I received it as an ARC and this is my honest review. ...more

This is such a twisted tale, every time you think you know, there is another twist, another hidden strand and more secrets and lies. This book is spine chilling and nightmare inducing but one you cannot put down, I read this in one sitting, disturbed but equally hooked, I read it on Kindle Unlimited.

Willow Rose shows once again she can spin a good yarn with some basis of factual occurances. Her Eva Rae series shows promise to be one of her best series ever. Incorporating factual occurrences with her own twists and turns will keep you guessing until the end!

Nancy has been missing for 5 years and she's presumed dead. But when she's pulled from the water by a fisherman and she's still alive, Eve Rae gets called in to investigate.

She's pulled into a web of lies, deception, and intrigue. This is another great read in the Eva Rae series. You do not need to have read the previous books to enjoy this book.

The author writes a great story. The reader is pulled in from the first few pages. I'm glad that I had the time to complete the book in one seating.

Eva Ray and Matt have had a difficult time blending their families, and with a baby on the way things certainly don't seem to be getting any easier. At least Detective Eva Ray Thomas has agreed to slow down her work schedule and prepare for another trip through motherhood. Who did author, Willow Rose, think would buy into that idea?

This book takes the form of a story told to investigators by a woman who had been missing for 5 years and suddenly appears, floating in Sykes Creek, unconscious, severely injured, nearly dead. Although she is identified as Nancy Henry, she maintains she doesn’t know who she is, what happened that made her disappear or where she’s been for the last five years, but she remembers most of her previous life.

With no contact during the period, her family finally had her declared dead and moved on; her

Willow Rose Books (Eva Rae Thomas) Reviewed

I chose four stars because, although I really liked the book, I still become a little frustrated at the fact that Eva Rae talks about her dedication to her
kids but doesn't usually show at in her actions. I think would know that the needs of the he children are more important. She's a smart woman and she would begin to address this again. I will be disappointed if she doesn't stay with the commitment she has, in the end of the book, for family. If she a

Setting Is a secluded exclusive part of the Merritt Island, one couple is fighting again. The yelling one could hear, then a shot was heard ,a neighbor feeling it was none of her concern.
Eva Ray is forty two and pregnant feeling lousy this time, and Matt had no idea what was ahead for them with an infant. Chief calls, they have a case and even though she is retired from the FBI, needs both.

Eva Rae Thomas former FBI profiler, is drawn into the case of a woman that disappeared five years previously, and has suddenly reappeared. Nancy Henry claims to have no memory of where she's been but Eva Rae doesn't believe her, and when the local police walk away from the case she continues to investigate.
All of these characters are well written, compelling, realistic and fascinating. However, I love Eva Rae, she is single-minded, relentless, and tenacious in her determination to find out the t

Nancy Henry had it all. Then she went missing. Now five years later she is pulled out of Sykes Creek. Doesn't know who she is or where she's been. Doesn't know what happened to her. Her husband thought she was dead and he had her pronounced legally dead. He is married to someone else.
Eva Rae has seen a very scared look in Nancy's eyes. She wonders if Nancy really has lost her memory or is she pretending she lost it to save herself?

I thoroughly enjoy this series by Willow Rose. Actually, all of her series but this is the one, of many, that keeps you guessing right up until the end and sometimes beyond, without the cliffhanger that most people I know hate. Where has Nancy been for the last 5 years? Why aren't her children happy to see her? Obviously something big happened 5 years ago. Was it so bad that her family can't be put back together again? Meanwhile, Matt & Eva Rae just can't seem to get it together, love and all. M ...more

If you’ve read other books in this series, you know that Eva Rae Thomas has a laser focus on each case, even at the expense of her family and boyfriend. Now, picture her bulldog investigative process fueled by pregnancy hormones — WOW! This case begins when a missing woman, presumed dead for 5 years, is found floating in a lake, injured but alive. Her husband and children are living happily in her home with a new wife/mom. Wife #1 doesn’t remember where she’s been, but it seems torture was invol ...more

"“We’ll be back later, and then we’ll talk,” I said as I reached the door. Matt was holding it open for me. Just as I said the words, Nancy lifted her head and glared at me. The look in her eyes made me“I almost drop the notepad in my hand. There was such great fear in them; it made me lose my breath." - Eva Rae

Mysteries within mysteries is the best description of this book. Things seem to be straightforward and then things veer into a different direction. The characters are all dealing with different personal issues that converge in a way you don't see coming. One of the best of this series so far.

Eva Rae has been asked to help untangle the mystery of a missing woman who reappears after five years. But nothing is as it seems. Can Eva Rae figure this one out or has she finally met her match?

It's about time Matt said his peace but you couldn't pay me enough to be in his shoes😂😅😵😡 do you think he will ever win? I don't think he has a snowball s chance in h----l!!

Nancy Henry is pulled out of the river by a fisherman and his son. She has been missing for 5 years. Nancy tells police that her husband, Charles, kidnapped her and held her captive. Eva Rae Thomas , former FBI is asked to add her expertise with this case. Nancy, at first, tells the police she cannot remember what has happened. This is another page turner from Willow Rose. There are twists and turns and a lot more to the story.

Eva Rae is on a new case. She’s pregnant and not sure she’s up to the challenge. Matt almost disappointed me in the story. This is a very entertaining mystery. It kept my interest from the beginning to end. There a lot of twists and turns, with the biggest twist at the end. This is an awesome series. I received a complimentary pre-release copy from the author and this is my honest review
