Gone Without a Trace, by Patricia Bradley (Revell, 2015)
Homicide detective Livy Reynolds can’t depend on herself to shoot if she or her partner is in danger. Not since she killed a young robber. With the choice of a desk job or a leave of absence, she takes time off work and returns to Logan Point.
When an out of town private investigator is sent to find a missing waitress, Livy seizes the chance to help. She doesn’t trust him to do the job, and this case reminds her of her cousin Robyn’s disappearance from the same town two years ago.
What if they could find Robyn as well as the latest victim? What if Livy discovers that Alex is not only competent but charming?
Book 3 in the Logan Point series, Gone Without a Trace is a satisfying romantic suspense. Each novel features different protagonists, tightly connected and all from the same town. Not only are the stories well plotted, the characters are fully developed and the town of Logan Point feels like a real place.
I’ve enjoyed this series and I’m looking forward to what’s next from this author. For more about Patricia Bradley and her books, visit ptbradley.com.
