Gone Without a Trace by Patricia Bradley

The past is repeating itself--and time is running out

It's been more than two years since homicide detective Livy Reynolds's cousin disappeared from Logan Point. Unlike most people in her hometown, Livy has never believed that Robyn left voluntarily. When Dallas private investigator Alex Jennings contacts her concerning a senator's missing granddaughter who was last seen in Logan Point, Livy notices eerie similarities between the two disappearances. With self-doubt plaguing her and an almost instant dislike of the self-assured PI, she's finding this investigation an uphill battle. But with the prospect of finding her cousin on the horizon, she'll have to find a way to work with Alex--before it's too late.

Award-winning author Patricia Bradley keeps you on the edge of your seat with a case--and a relationship--that is anything but certain.

My review:
   Patrica Bradley is still a new author to me. The only books I have read by her is this Logan Point Series, this being the third and final book of the series.

  Suspense/mystery is my favorite genre', and there is a lot of great books on the Christian market in that genre'. One of my favorite parts of a suspense/mystery novel is when there is a bad guy and I can't figure out who it is, and this book really kept me guessing as to who the kidnapper/killer was.

  Bradley brought back several characters from the first two books, which is something I like. There were also some new characters which only added to the already roster of liable characters. The suspense was top notch, and the romance angle not overdone or mushy. I had no trouble getting into the book and read past my bedtime because I couldn't put it down.

  The author can be proud of this latest effort of hers. It is a great conclusion to a great series, and is a standard to which other Christians suspense authors can look to.
