When twelve-year-old Sophie Williams went on a Girl Scout summer camp, she never returned home.
Three months later, her body is found inside her sleeping bag in the most frequented area of Cocoa Beach, and the town is outraged.
The girl isn't just any child. She's the town's most beloved surf idol, and it was believed that she could be the next Kelly Slater.
As another child, the son of a well-known senator is kidnapped, and the parents receive a disturbing video, FBI profiler Eva Rae Thomas — who has just returned to her hometown, divorced and out of a job — plunges into the investigation, breaking her promise to her children not to do police work again.
Local law enforcement, with her old flame Matt Miller in charge, are the ones who ask for her help in a case so unsettling that only she can solve it. But the deeper they dig, the deadlier it becomes for Matt and Eva Rae. Soon, everyone she holds dear is in grave danger as this case hits a little too close to home.
DON’T LIE TO ME is the first book in the Eva Rae Thomas Mystery Series and can be read as a standalone.
This is the first book in the Eva Rae Thomas mystery series by Willow Rose.
I am glad I started this series with book one since the story moves forward in time from book to book and this particular series makes more sense when you read it in order.
Eva Rae is a compelling main character. She is reeling from her husband who has left her for a younger woman and in charge of three young children. She gave up her FBI job in order to take care of her kids but as a popular profiler, her skills are in demand. The only problem is that her skills as a mom are lower than average.
She comes across a woman running in front of her car and is drawn into an investigation about an abducted girl, a popular surfer, alongside her old friend Matt Miller.
This book is excellent in so many ways! I looks so unassuming but definitely worth the read. PICK THIS ONE UP FOR SURE!
