Review: Missing by Lisa Harris

Missing by Lisa Harris (The Nikki Boyd Files #2)

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Nikki Boyd Enters the Deadly World of Counterfeit Drugs to Find a Missing Woman

Nikki Boyd isn't usually called in on homicides; her forte is missing persons. But when a case with two murdered and two missing pops up on a quiet suburban street, she's ready to start the investigation and find missing homeowners Mac and Lucy Hudson. When the first clues lead her to the boat of her friend Tyler Grant--and another dead body--Nikki must untangle what ties Tyler to the Hudsons. The clues pull her into a deadly maze of counterfeit drugs and a killer who will stop at nothing to silence anyone who threatens his business--including Nikki.

Christy Award-winning and bestselling author Lisa Harris puts readers right into the action in this fast-paced thriller that will have them turning pages long into the night.

I really enjoyed this suspense and action filled story.  Nikki Boyd still struggles with her sister's disappearance 10 years ago and consequently is always willing to go above and beyond to help with other missing persons cases.  When her current case leads to the boat of her friend, Tyler Grant, she must put aside her growing feelings for him and untangle the threads that involve counterfeit drugs and a killer.

With several twists and turns, this fast paced, suspenseful story will keep you on the edge of your seat.   And the sweet relationship and growing feelings between Nikki and Tyler will make you smile in delight.   I'm looking forward to the next book, Pursued!
