A plane crash, a kidnapping and more than one missing person will make this the hardest case Nikki Boyd has had to tackle yet.
When Nikki Boys flies back into Nashville, she tries to control her nerves. Flying doesn’t bother her; she is excited to see her boyfriend who has been away for over a month. As they prepare to land, the woman sitting next to her is nervous about the flight and landing, especially as they end up crash landing. Chaos quickly envelopes the plane while Nikki looks for her seatmate, Erika Hamilton who is now missing and no one has heard of her or will admit she was ever on the plane. Nikki soon finds out that the man sitting beside her was an air marshal and Erika was set to testify as a key witness in an upcoming trial. Nikki saw the look of panic on Erika’s face and knows she is in danger. Without even taking time to see her family, Nikki and her team work together to find Erika and figure out the deeper, darker secrets this case holds.
This is the third book in the Nikki Boyd series and to me it is the best yet. The stakes are higher and the action is tighter than in the previous. I think one of the things that made this one better was the fact that it was heavier on the suspense than the romance. That is something that has become unusual for romantic suspense novels lately. I enjoy romantic suspense, but they are typically not my favorite because they tend to go with more romance which takes away from the suspense. The relationship was put more on the backburner with this novel making Nikki focus more on the case at hand. Lisa Harris is getting better with each book and this is probably the best one she has written. Fans of her work and who enjoy a good suspense novel with a little romance sprinkled in will not want to miss this one.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
