About the Book:
First, computer specialist Laney Ryan's accused of kidnapping her neighbor's daughter—and now someone's trying to kill her. The police don't believe Laney's story…except for Detective Mark James, whose instincts say Laney isn't guilty. Together, Mark and Laney must figure out who really abducted the teen and uncover why they're framing Laney. But when their search for the truth turns deadly, Mark realizes his feelings for Laney aren't strictly professional and that he'll stop at nothing to keep her safe. With a dangerous suspect swiftly closing in, can they find the missing girl and clear Laney's name…before their possible future together is fatally cut short?
My Rating & Thoughts: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 (4 stars)
This was action packed right from the beginning with the police invading Laney's home. The action never stops either, just when Laney thinks she is safe something else happens threatening her life. Detective Mark James has been assigned to the case, but struggles with the question is Laney really guilty or is she being set up to appear guilty. Mark is torn between doing his job or following his gut feeling about Laney. I knew that Laney was innocent, but looking at the case through Mark's eye I could understand how he was feeling. Each chapter ended with enough of a cliff-hanger that made you want to read the next one to find out what was going to happen. There were enough clues throughout the story to allow the reader to figure out who the bad guys were, but it was not obvious either. I enjoyed the ending, knowing the bad guys were caught and the good people were happy. Disclaimer: I received this book free from the Ms. Barritt but the opinions expressed here are completely my own.
