Evie Blackwell loves her life as an Illinois State Police detective . . . mostly. She's very skilled at investigations and has steadily moved up through the ranks. She would like to find Mr. Right, but she has a hard time imagining how marriage could work, considering the demands of her job.
Gabriel Thane grew up in Carin County and is now its sheriff, a job he loves. Gabe is committed to upholding the law and cares deeply for the residents he's sworn to protect. He too would like to find a lifetime companion, a marriage like his parents have. . . .
When Evie arrives in Carin, Illinois, it's to help launch a new task force focused on unsolved crimes across the state. She will work with the sheriff's department on a couple of its most troubling missing-persons cases. As she studies old evidence to pull out a few tenuous new leads, she unearths surprising connections. One way or another, she knows Gabriel Thane and his family will be key to the answers she seeks.
I really enjoyed this book, there were so many twists and turns in it that the story kept you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out who/what was going to happen/turn up next. I have read Dee's books before and this one is of the same high calibre. The main characters were compelling and they worked well together and each character could have a book written about them on their own, as their back stories were so interesting. This book is the first in the "Evie Blackwell Cold Case," series; I can't wait to read the next one, as it was that good.
Stars out of 5 : 5 This is a must read book in my opinion. It is a "meaty" book that just begs to have the next page turned so you can see what will happen next. Go out and buy the book or borrow it from your local library you will not be disappointed.
