About the Book:
Her mother lied about her identity and her husband wasn’t who she thought he was—can Bailey even trust herself anymore?

Running for her life in the wake of her mother’s murder, Bailey Fleming escapes to the only place she can think of—a remote, dilapidated cabin in Lavender Tides. Intending to finally get to the truth behind the lies of her past, Bailey only finds more questions when bodies are discovered near her cabin hideout along with traces of a dangerous human trafficking ring. In an unlikely partnership with FBI agent Lance Phoenix, Bailey races to understand the mystery surrounding her life and circumstances before the murderer tracks her down.

Meanwhile, Lance is determined to rescue his sister, Ava, who was abducted after running away from home as a teenager. An unexpected lead brings him to the remote cabin, and he wonders if Bailey—with her suspicious past and strange connections to his sister’s case—is really who she claims to be and if she can somehow lead him to Ava.  

My Rating & Thoughts:    🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟    (5 stars)

Releases January 22nd!

Best of the series! I was hooked from the moment I met Bailey and she ends up on the run. She has just found out her marriage was fake and then her mother is murdered. Bailey arrives in Lavender Tides where she hopes to be safe, but things are not as they seem. Someone is after Bailey, bodies are found, ties to a human trafficking ring are revealed, and she finds out that her mother has lied to her for years.

Through his current investigation of searching for his missing sister, FBI agent Lance meets Bailey. He realizes there might a tie in between what is happening to Bailey and his missing sister. The two spend a lot of time together over the course of the investigation and feelings begin to develop. There are so many secrets abounding, can these two piece all the pieces together and stop the evil that is happening before more girls get taken? Will Lance be able to protect Bailey?

There is plenty of action, suspense and romance that kept me engaged and turning pages quickly. I had to know who King was and if Lance would find his sister. I felt for Bailey, finding out that her whole life has been a lie. But she held on to her faith and treated others with genuine care even though her life was in danger. Her determination to press on was admirable.
While the main storyline is a unique to this book, there is a storyline that continues from the previous two books. There are little bits of recap inserted in this book that help you know what has previously happened but I would highly recommend reading the series in order to fully appreciate the character relationships. I fully enjoyed this book and did not want to put it down. Highly recommend!
