Genre: Romantic Suspense

About the Book:

When two Jane Does are killed on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia, detective and behavioral specialist Avery North discovers they share something in common--a tattoo of a magnolia on their shoulders. Suspecting a serial killer, Avery joins forces with medical examiner Jackson Bryant to solve the crimes and prevent another murder. But it doesn't take long for them to realize that there is much more to the case than meets the eye. As they venture deep into a sinister world of human trafficking, Avery and Jackson are taken to the very edge of their abilities--and their hearts.


My Rating & Thoughts:    

I was intrigued from the moment the book started. The case had me wondering what was happening and I wanted to see where the relationship of the two main characters was going to go. As we got further into the case and I discovered more of what was going on I felt fear for the girls in this situation and hoped the police would be able to stop those responsible. I liked watching the interaction of Avery and Jackson develop and was rooting for this relationship. I feel like they balanced each other well and due to their professions were able to understand the pressures each other dealt with. There was one particular scene that made me an emotional mess. I enjoyed the faith discussions between characters, lots of discussions about the God and evil happening in the world. "Even though life is tough - sometimes dark and horrible - that doesn't change who God is. He is still in control." At times I did find it hard to believe that Avery was a seasoned detective with the way she reacted to some situations. The main case does wrap up in this book, but there is another case going on that is not resolved and I need to continue the series to get some answers.
