Vendetta - The Nikki Boyd Files 1 - by Lisa Harris

Cover Art

About the book:

No one needs to push Nikki Boyd to excel on the Tennessee Missing Persons Task Force. The case of her own missing sister, still unsolved after ten years, is the driving force in her work. When a Polaroid photo of a missing girl shows up at a crime scene, Nikki quickly recognizes similarities to the past. The closer she gets to the abductor, the more she feels this case has become personal, and she is not the hunter . . . but the hunted.

With this explosive first book in The Nikki Boyd Files, award-winning author Lisa Harris takes you on a fast-paced pursuit of justice that will have you holding your breath until the heart-stopping finish.

My review:

This was a wonderful start to a new series!  It was very suspenseful as Nikki and her team raced to track down a missing girl, not to mention that she thinks it could be the same person who abducted her sister.  I can't imagine the horror of knowing someone you love was taken and never finding out what happened to them or catching their abductor.  Add in feeling responsible for it happening in the first place and she's operating under a lot of guilt and a lot of pressure.  She seemed to get pretty emotional at different times in the story, which was understandable, yet also put the case at risk, so it was a little frustrating.  I also thought she made some bad decisions a few times and that she could have been smarter.  I liked the hints of romance and am excited to see where the relationship goes in future books.  I also liked the honesty in the conversations between Nikki and her friend Tyler as they discussed the tragedies they'd gone through and how they struggled with their faith and with trusting God.  This looks to be an exciting new series and I recommend it if you like suspense!

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
