Title: Vendetta (The Nikki Boyd Files #1)
Author: Lisa Harris
My rating is 4 stars.
Nikki Boyd is a young woman whose career change into the Missing Persons Task Force was prompted by her younger sister being abducted. Now, ten years later, Nikki is still searching for her sister along with any new clue that would help her locate the person responsible. Nikki’s sister and five other young women have been abducted and so far Nikki is still searching not sure if it is for revenge or justice.
Also Nikki is dealing with it being the one year anniversary of losing her best friend and she is celebrating her life with her best friend’s husband, who she remains friend with by rock climbing. The adrenaline rush is something Nikki loves and shortly after reaching solid ground her phone rings. The call is due to a woman missing close to where Nikki is on her day off, so Nikki responds by taking the case. The young widower, Tyler, goes with her to support Nikki in many ways.
As I progressed more into the story, I became engrossed in trying to figure out all of the clues that were slowly being revealed. However, it wasn’t until shortly before I finished the book that I took a guess at who the culprit was, but there were some interesting twists at the end. Lisa Harris’s novel isn’t just filled with suspense, romance and more, but also about how Nikki and Tyler are learning to walk through their faith. Each has had heartbreaking, major interruptions in their life and they are good friends, but Tyler is having a hard time in his walk with God.
I liked that neither of the main characters, Nikki nor Tyler, had answers to some deep questions about God and their faith. Nikki in dealing with her sister being missing and then losing her best friend has caused Nikki and Tyler to walk one day at a time and not be afraid to ask questions about faith, God and life. I liked how the author didn’t give pat answers through any character and had them walk through the case with its dangers, threats and some good times too.
So for a quiet afternoon read or evening this is a book for you!
