Wow! The action doesn’t stop from beginning to end – from plane crash in the beginning to the end where Nikki says, “Uneventful. I’d like that.” I loved how real the author made that plane crash though – describing one of the flight attendants after the crash with these words, “Nikki didn’t miss the fear mingled with determination in the young woman’s eyes. She couldn’t be more than twenty-five, trained to be able to open the door of an airplane in her sleep, while hoping to never experience something like this.” But right after the crash Nikki realizes her seat companion has disappeared – even though she made it through the crash. Since there are so many inconsistencies in this disappearance, Nikki, an investigator with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, is drawn into a hush-hush case. Will she be able to figure out where Erika has gone?
Nikki seems to be a magnet for trouble – plane crashes, hostage situations, and more! Every page seems to bring more trouble, not to mention the standing mystery of whatever happened to Nikki’s sister Sarah who disappeared years ago.
I really enjoyed this book although it is not a good one to start reading if you must get a good night’s sleep – I stayed up way too late because I just had to know what would happen next! I loved, too, how Nikki has personal struggles and keeps trying to give them over to God, but is having such a hard time doing it. So, this book has mystery and suspense, romance, and a heroine trying to live fully for God. What a great combination, in my opinion! And speaking of opinion, I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion of it.
