Title: Gone Without a Trace (Logan Point #3)
Author: Patricia Bradley
Alex Jennings is a private investigator who has just been handed his first case to work solo. He has been assigned the task of finding a wealthy man’s granddaughter who has gone missing. Alex is also dealing with his own wealthy grandfather who wants him to take the bar exam to become a lawyer. Alex likes being a PI as well as a flying instructor and has no intention of ever becoming a lawyer. As Alex investigates his case, he discovers many similarities to another missing woman’s case. This woman’s cousin, Livy Reynolds, is a homicide detective. She has been unsuccessful in finding her missing cousin, but agrees with Alex that the two cases bear looking into together.
Livy Reynolds has decided to take a leave of absence from her job as a detective so as to concentrate on finding her missing cousin. She initially thinks of Alex as just a PI and kind of beneath her professionally speaking, but after she gets to know him a little better changes her mind. Livy really doesn’t have time in her life for a romantic relationship as all she does is work, but Alex makes her realize she has no other life outside her job. Will Alex follow through on his word or disappoint her as her father has so many times before?
I have really enjoyed this romantic, suspense, and mystery filled series. The characters are ones each reader can identify with and root along with them as they track down the criminals and serve up justice. I like the faith elements included in each story as well. They are woven into the story so as not to brow beat the reader, but do show the characters’ faith in God. I hope there will be another exciting series from this author. Pick up a copy for an entertaining afternoon!
My rating is 4 stars.
