Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh’s Morgan Dane series continues as the fearless attorney and her partner, investigator Lance Kruger, take on a disturbing disappearance…
Young mother Chelsea Clark leaves the house for a girls’ night out…and vanishes. Her family knows she would never voluntarily leave her two small children. Her desperate husband—also the prime suspect—hires Morgan to find his wife and prove his innocence.
As a single mother, Morgan sympathizes with Chelsea’s family and is determined to find her. She teams up with private investigator Lance Kruger. But the deeper they dig, the deadlier their investigation gets. When Morgan is stalked by a violent predator, everything—and everyone—she holds dear is in grave danger.
Now, Morgan must track down a deranged criminal to protect her own family…but she won’t need to leave home to find him. She’s his next target.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is book 2 in the Morgan Dane series.
A woman disappears leaving her husband and 2 children. Tim asks Sharpe Investigations for help as the Sheriff is too fixated on him.
This book lacked the grit and adrenaline pumping suspense that I like in a thriller but it is still a good read and plenty of intrigue to keep you turning the pages.
I like how Morgan and Lance’s characters develop throughout the book and we learn more about them and what makes them tick.
This is a romantic suspense and does focus quite a lot on the relationship between Morgan and Lance and contains erotica which I, personally, don’t think brought much to the story. There are also parts that didn’t seem to work for me.
Overall a very good read.
