Gone Without A Trace - A Book Review

Livy Reynolds is a homicide detective that can't get over killing a teenage boy in the line of duty.  Even though the act was justified, Livy can't seem to get past the guilt.  She takes a leave of absence and heads to Logan Point for some rest and relaxation.  Rest and relaxation is the last thing she gets.  Two years ago, Livy's cousin Robyn went missing.  Since that time there have been several waitresses gone missing and the most recent is Samantha Jo, a senator's granddaughter.

Alex Jenning is a private investigator who has been hired to find Samantha Jo.   When he meets Livy they discover that the similarities between Samantha Jo's and Robyn's case are eerily similar.  They team up to uncover the truth.  They feel that if they can figure out what happened to Robyn they can figure out what happened to Samantha Jo.  Will they be able to find Samantha Joe before it's too late?  Will someone else be hurt or kidnapped before they catch the person who is doing this?

This book has it all!  Within its pages you will find romance, suspense, mystery, restoration and forgiveness.  The character's are well developed and easy to connect with.  It is one of those books that you don't want to put down until the end.

It is a great mystery that kept me guessing.  A lot of books of this genre are fairly predictable, but not this one.  The author writes in such a way that leaves you on the edge and every time I thought I had figured out who the culprit was I was proven wrong.  This is the third book of a series, but at no time did I feel like I was missing out because I hadn't read the first two.  I will be going back and reading the other two though.  This was my first time reading one of Patricia Bradley's books, but it won't be the last!
