Former FBI-profiler, Eva Rae Thomas is caught off guard by a murderous plan that sends her on a pulse-pounding race against time in this romantic thriller by Willow Rose.
It is a typical Tuesday morning. Scott Benton gets up, kisses his girlfriend Sarah goodbye, and goes to work.
But when he returns home from work later in the afternoon, his girlfriend of two years is gone.
And just like that, Scott’s life is turned upside down.
The police are after him, thinking he hurt her. His friends and family have turned their backs on him, thinking the same. Meanwhile, there is one thing Scott can’t stop thinking about.
Two months ago, Sarah told him that he should go looking for her if she ever turned up missing.
Former FBI-profiler Eva Rae Thomas has enough on her plate as it is: a newborn baby, an upcoming marriage, and a house not big enough to fit them all.
On top of it, she takes in a young girl who is in serious trouble, only adding to the strain on her family life.
When Scott Benton shows up and tells her she’s his only hope in finding his girlfriend, Eva Rae is inclined to say no, but she can’t get herself to do it.
Scott and Eva Rae used to date for a brief period in high school, and Eva Rae isn’t the type of person who can just stop caring about someone.
Especially when they have nowhere else to turn.
As the investigation deepens, Eva Rae Thomas finds out what it is from her past that Sarah was so afraid of, and she’ll need all of her profiling skills in the race against time to find the girl before it is too late.
This is the eighth book in the Eva Rae Thomas mystery series by Willow Rose.
The books by Willow Rose are always very complex. And this book is no different. Eva Rae is haunted in this book by her old boyfriend who is implicated in the disappearance of his girlfriend Sarah. This puts further stress on her relationship with Matt. She has a new baby and then ends up having to take care of the baby of one of her daughter’s friends. This is the perfect recipe to blow up her relationship permanently. But knowing how Eva Rae is, she struggles on trying to uncover the truth at the expense of herself and her family.
The secondary storyline is about a therapist who is seeing a couple who are on the verge of breaking up. But this therapist, Lynn finds herself attracted to Jeffrey, the husband. There is a bit of deception going on in the storyline with regards to this plotline and when you get to the end you will truly realize what was really going on that connects this couple to the current plotline. There is always a parallel story running alongside the main story and I try and figure out how it applies to the now timeline and am always surprised by what Willow Rose manages to pull out of her hat and shock us every time.
Such a good story and a great storyteller. Very impressed with this author’s work.
If you love a good mystery, definitely check this one out. Great new must read book great series too!
