I’ve always been impressed with Patricia Bradley’s ability to weave multiple storylines together in her novel. I find her stories to have multiple layers to them and a certain complexity. It’s refreshing at times and extremely enjoyable. Sometimes these layers are multiple mysteries, a love story, or something on a deeper psychological level. They are fantastic books, and I highly reccommend Patricia Bradley books to those who enjoy a good romantic suspense.

**I received a copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.**
It’s been more than two years since homicide detective Livy Reynolds’s cousin disappeared from Logan Point. Unlike most people in her hometown, Livy has never believed that Robyn left voluntarily. When Dallas private investigator Alex Jennings contacts Livy concerning a missing senator’s daughter who was last seen in Logan Point, she notices eerie similarities between the two disappearances. But with self-doubt plaguing her and an almost instant dislike of Jennings, Livy is finding this investigation an uphill battle. With her future in law enforcement on the line, can she find a way to work with a man who is her polar opposite?
Award-winning author Patricia Bradley keeps readers on the edge of their seats as they anticipate the outcome of the case–and the relationship between Livy and Alex–which is anything but certain.
Getting to know the fantastic characters in this book was a joy–not to mention catching up with a few others from the previous two Logan Point novels of the series (and don’t worry, if you haven’t read those, you can still enjoy this book). There are a couple of characters in this book that have to learn some hard lessons about trust and being courageous, and each in their unique way. Their ability to do so impacts whether or not a kidnapper can be caught.
So much of this book centers around themes of forgiveness and identity. The message of it is powerful and something that we all need to be reminded of at times. I loved this book and cannot wait to see what Patricia Bradley has in store for us next.
