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.

My Thoughts:

This is the second book in the Nikki Boyd Files released by Lisa Harris and to me a stand alone story even though it's part of a series.  I will start by saying the cover does a good job of giving the reader a hint of the suspense inside. 
 I enjoyed this book, but I really like a suspenseful story.  Nikki Boyd is a Special Agent with the Tennessee Bureau of  Investigations-Missing Persons Task Force.  Nikki hasn't given up on finding her sister who disappeared years ago. She and partner, Jack Spencer, have been called to the scene of a homicide.  As more information becomes available it is discovered that Mac and Lucy Hudson are missing which is what prompts the call.  Knowing the first 48 hours are crucial Nikki and Jack plan to leave no stone uncovered.  Unfortunately the first clue leads them to the marina and the boat owned by Nikki's close friend, Tyler Grant.  Upon arrival they encounter Tyler bloodied and leaning over a body who turns out to be Mac Hudson.  Nikki knows that there's no way Tyler was involved in  this murder, but she must put her feelings aside and work the case and follow where the leads take her.  
This is a action packed suspense that will keep you guessing until the end.  I liked the characters.  Nikki shows both determination and strength as she works the case.  With each new lead she begins to ask more questions and suddenly realizes she has more questions than answers.  She digs in and always puts the case first.  She is diligent in looking for Lucy.  Tyler is forthcoming as to the extent of his involvement, but when he realizes the danger that Nikki is in his protective instincts kick in.  Jack is a no nonsense character that doesn't take anything at face value.  His main concern is finding answers that will lead to Lucy Hudson.  This is an adventure and suspense that will keep you turning the pages until the end, even if it's 2 am and your alarm will sound at 6 am.
I would recommend this book to anyone that loves suspense.

Here's a look at the next book in this series, Pursued, is set to release in April, 2017. 


Cover Art Nikki Boyd's flight into Nashville was routine--up until the crash landing at the airport. When the dust settles, Nikki discovers that the woman who had been seated next to her on the plane is missing--and no one will admit she was ever there. Erika Hamilton had been flying to Nashville with an air marshal as a key witness in an upcoming grand jury trial. When she flees from the crash, is she running from trouble or straight into it? Before Nikki can even see her family, she and her team are pulled into a missing persons case where the motives are as unclear as the suspects.
