Missing - The NIkki Boyd Files 2 - by Lisa Harris

Cover Art

About the book:

Nikki Boyd isn't usually called in on homicides; her forte is missing persons. But when a case with two murdered and two missing pops up on a quiet suburban street, she's ready to start the investigation and find missing homeowners Mac and Lucy Hudson. When the first clues lead her to the boat of her friend Tyler Grant--and another dead body--Nikki must untangle what ties Tyler to the Hudsons. The clues pull her into a deadly maze of counterfeit drugs and a killer who will stop at nothing to silence anyone who threatens his business--including Nikki.

Christy Award-winning and bestselling author Lisa Harris puts you right into the action in this fast-paced thriller.

My review:

This was a wonderful romantic suspense I could hardly put down!  I found the investigation fascinating as they delved into the missing couple's life to figure out if they were kidnapped or ran away and what was going on in their lives at the time to put them in danger.  There was also plenty of action as Nikki was racing against time and the bodies kept piling up!  There was some romance, also, as Nikki continued to fight her feelings for Tyler, the husband of her deceased best friend.  It was also interesting to see some more information come to light on the disappearance of her sister years ago.  Harris does a good job of balancing the action with the emotional component of the story.  Nikki was a woman of faith who prayed for help at different times and there was some talk of faith.  I really liked Nikki and admired her strength to do what she does, to deal with her sister's disappearance and the not knowing and also the recent death of her best friend.  Tyler seemed like a great guy, too, though I had a hard time with a decision he made toward the end of the book.  This book worked fine as a stand-alone regarding the suspense aspect of the story, but the relationship between Tyler and Nikki did continue from book one, so you might want to read book one first to get the background on their relationship and also a lot more information about Nikki's sister.  I really enjoyed that book, too.  I highly recommend this book and series and look forward to the next one!

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