Vendetta by Lisa Harris

Title:  Vendetta (The Nikki Boyd Files #1)
Author:  Lisa Harris
Pages:  304
Year:  2015
Publisher:  Revell
Nikki Boyd is a Special Agent for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation in their Missing Persons Unit.  She was a teacher, but with the abduction of her sister ten years ago, she turned her career toward police work.  She served her time as a beat cop and now has trained for this specific unit created to find missing people.  Nikki still holds out hope that her sister, Sarah, is still alive and has dedicated the last ten years of her life studying every abduction case she can get her hands on and memorizing fact after fact about them.  While grieving for her sister still, she also is grieving over the death of her best friend, Katie, a year ago in a boating accident.  She has become good friends with Katie’s husband, Tyler, as they both try to process their grief, survive and keep their faith in God intact.
Nikki and Tyler are out rappelling as a way to remember something they and Katie liked to do.  When they reach the bottom of the cliff, Nikki receives a phone call from her boss about a potential kidnapped 16-year-old girl.  Nikki and Tyler go to the scene and soon are embroiled in a case that seems to have roots in the past for Nikki.  Can this case finally give her some answers about her sister’s abduction?  As the tension mounts during the course of the investigation, Nikki depends more and more on Tyler.  If only she could meet a man like him, she might be ready to settle down.
After the heart-pumping action in this the first story of the Nikki Boyd Files, I can’t wait for book two!  However, book two is not being released until the summer of 2016, so I guess I’ll have to find some other books to read between now and then.  This book has got lots of tension, suspense, action, faith struggles and more.  Lisa Harris has a God-given talent for writing stories that draw readers in from page one until the last page is turned.  The characters of Nikki and Tyler were very realistic in their shared grief and struggles, trying to see God’s purpose amidst their sorrow.  I was engaged in the story from beginning to end and cared what happened to the people in the story.  Don’t miss this one!
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…
