Missing by Lisa Harris

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.

My review:

   This is the second book in the Nikki Boyd Files Series, and I found it to be even better than the first one, which I really enjoyed.

  Missing launches right into the crime to be solved on the first page, and then it is non stop suspense and excitement. The book brings back the main characters of the previous book with the main character's romantic interest having a connection to the crime.

 At the center of the crime to be solved is counterfeit prescription drugs, which is evidently a bigger deal and more prevalent than I had imagined. Some suspense novels can be a bit predictable, but this one had me guessing the whole book as to what was going on. There was something I was hoping would happen in the book that actually did happen - I won't say what, but it involves romance.....

  I did read this book in one evening. It was an easy and exciting read that I didn't want to put down until I finished it, so I didn't put it down until I reached the very satisfying end. I highly recommend it and the book it follows. Vendetta.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
