“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. “
At the recommendation of a Goodreads friend I decided to try out my first Lisa Harris book. I was not disappointed! Despite the fact that it was the third in the series (what is with that? This is now the third book in a row that I’ve read that was the third in a series. I guess they do say ‘three’s a charm’ but seriously! Okay anyway…), it worked pretty good as a stand-alone. I could tell that there were things in the previous books that were referenced, but it never felt like it was hard to follow or anything. I do want to go back and read those though.
This is one of those fast paced books whose chapter titles are marked by hours and minutes on the clock, and the whole thing takes place within the space of about 60 hours. Definitely made it difficult to put down.
There were some unexpected (even disappointing) twists, and I actually don’t feel like there was complete resolution to the main issue, but not sure if that might be something the author continues in her next book. I can’t go into details without giving serious spoilers.
I did enjoy the spiritual side as well. While it wasn’t as strong as others I’ve read, she still brought out some great truths, especially toward the end.
Mrs. Harris is a very talented author and I look forward to reading the next book in the series as well as others she’s written as I get the opportunity.
Overall, I would give this a four star rating!
