4.5 Star Review:
This is book four of the series and it had me hooked from the beginning. The story was intriguing and it even had a bit of romance thrown in. The characters in the story were very descriptive, so it felt like you really knew them after a while. I fully enjoyed the book and would recommend it to romantic suspense readers.
When a teenager mysteriously disappears in Hawick Falls, New Hampshire, Lisa Raynes fears her kidnapper, who recently escaped from prison, is hunting girls again. She also believes he’s targeted her for his next victim when she receives a threatening message. To add to her problems, her ex-boyfriend Travis Bodell, nephew of her captor, shows up in town. Five years ago, he promised to love Lisa forever, but he left her to start a new life. Trusting him was a mistake she will never repeat.
Bad boy Travis Bodell has a history of run-ins with the law. The police suspect he came back to aid his uncle, not to warn Lisa she’s in danger. With the investigation going nowhere, Travis focuses on Lisa who identifies with the missing teen and wants to find her. To keep Lisa safe, he offers to help her search. She refuses until loving memories of their past surface, and she finally accepts his proposal. Working together arouses strong feelings of attraction that neither will admit.
As time runs out for the kidnap victim, disturbing threats against Midnight Girl, Lisa’s online name, grow. She realizes the only way to stay alive is to open her heart and put her faith in Travis, but can she let go of her doubts and lingering hurt? Can the couple join forces and win against a cunning criminal fueled by hate?
“Let’s go.” He dug out a four-inch black flashlight from his pocket and turned it on. He threaded his fingers through hers.
The simple action felt intimate and personal, but she didn’t have time to react. He was leading her forward. Sticks and twigs crunched beneath their feet. They ducked under branches.
The blackness closed around them. She struggled to inhale and exhale calmly.
I’m fine. She angled her head upward, seeking the starlight.
Suddenly, her shoe caught in a hole. She lost her balance.
Travis tightened his grip and reached under her elbow to steady her. “You okay?”
The hooting of an owl answered.
She wet her dry lips. “Super.”
They walked until the trees thinned. An overgrown field lay ahead. A shrill scream sent quivers shooting through her.
“What was that?” She blinked, staring over her shoulder into the pines. “Was something or someone under attack?”
“Red fox. You must have heard one before.”
“Not that I recall. Though as long as it’s not Seth, I’m good.”
He released her hand and tramped to the edge of a field. “My uncle’s main hiding place was around here somewhere.”
“Somewhere?” She tightened her lips to keep them from quaking.
“I’ll find it.” He paced a few feet into the meadow of shrubs, knee-high gras, and waved her forward.
“Found it by the large oak. He pointed to a towering tree bordering the forest. Its limbs seemed to hover just beneath the sky now a mixture of stars and clouds.
