Trapped by Irene Hannon

Title:  Trapped (Private Justice Book 2)
Author:  Irene Hannon
Pages:  400
Year:  2103
Publisher:  Revell
How stimulating a story with the main characters continuing in this novel from the first titled Vanished! Plus there is a sneak peek at the third installment coming next summer titled, Deceived!  The main characters of Nikki, Conner, Cal and Dev who all work for their own private investigating company remain as a team as they tackle another case.
At first glance it appears that Laura’s half-sister Darcy has run away, but with a blizzard quickly shutting down the town Laura hopes to find her soon.  Through an amazing amount of tenacity along with a plethora of trials, Darcy still isn’t found but Laura and Devlin might be falling in love.  However, the rule at the detective agency is no dating clients, so now much to the chagrin of Dev he has to wait and see where the relationship might go.  While looking for Darcy thus far has turned up no leads, there seems to be a period of waiting that tests even the strong of heart.
Mark is a director of a children’s day care, but is his appearance as a nice guy just a decoy?  Mark is infatuated with redeeming young women in the hopes of salvation for himself.  When his best laid plans start to unravel, does he become the prime suspect or is there an unknown character in the shadows?  Faith works for Mark in the front office; she has a crush on him until her one unexpected visit finds him in questionable company.
Irene Hannon has written a masterpiece of suspense, thrills and romance.  The author shows her exemplary skills with each page turning adventure.  For me, reading Vanished helped me have the background of the characters in the story before reading Trapped.  I don’t know if a person can read one without the other.  What I can say is that you will miss a suspenseful tale with riveting action if you don’t read Vanished.   
One of the best parts of the novel is the realism drawn into the characters that make up the novel.   Though they are fictional in nature, their thoughts and actions seem very lifelike.  The struggle with faith or the strength of faith is one of the differences in a couple of the players.  No reader will be bored when reading the series, especially with the third book due out in under a year.  Grab both Vanished and Trapped then prepare to get entangled in the threads of a well woven masterpiece!
My rating is 5 stars.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
