I can honestly say that if I see a novel with the name Lisa Harris on it, I cannot resist picking up a copy. So when given the opportunity to read and review her newest book, Missing, the second book in "The Nikki Boyd Files" series I jumped at the chance. I totally enjoyed Vendetta, the first book in the series (read my review here.) and Missing was just as good.
BLURB FROM BACK OF BOOK
Nikki Boyd usually isn't called in on homicides; her forte is missing persons. But when a case with two murdered and two missing pops up on a quiet suburban street, she's ready to start the investigation and find missing homeowners Mac and Lucy Hudson. When the first clues lead her to the boat of her friend Tyler Grant--and another dead body--Nikki must untangle what ties Tyler to the Hudsons. The clues pull her into a deadly maze of counterfeit drugs and a killer who will stop at nothing to silence anyone who threatens his business--including Nikki.
From the very first line to the last, Lisa Harris held me captive in her newest book, Missing. Her heroine, Nikki Boyd, continues her work with the Tennessee Missing Persons Task Force, but this novel pulls in several homicides as well. The hero in the novel is Tyler Grant, the widower of Nikki's best friend, and very early in the book, Tyler becomes a suspect due to the dead body found on his boat.
I truly love the character of Nikki Boyd. Ms. Harris has created a character that seems so very real that it is hard to believe she is only fictional. All of the other characters are well created as well, but Nikki stands out more than all of the others.
The plot was so fast paced and kept me guessing throughout. I would just start thinking I had it figured out only to have the story take a turn and I'd start trying to figure it out all over again. I love stories that make you think. The scary thing about the plot is the counterfeit drug story. It makes you wonder if something like that could really happen in today's world.
I can honestly say, if you are a fan of clean suspenseful fiction, you will love Missing. So please do yourself a favor and pick up a copy today.
On a 5-Star scale - 5 HUGE Stars!!!!!
I would like to thank the author, Lisa Harris, and Revell for my copy of Missing. I received my copy for free in order to read it and give my honest review.
Smiles & Blessings,
