About the book:
When Laura Griffith's sixteen-year-old sister disappears on a frigid February day, leaving only a brief note behind, Laura resolves to do whatever it takes to track down the runaway teen. That includes recruiting ATF agent turned private investigator James Devlin to help. Dev knows time is of the essence with runaways--just forty-eight hours can mean the difference between recovery and ruin.

But the deeper he and Laura dig, the more Dev begins to suspect that something sinister is at work in the girl's disappearance. And in the icy winter weather, the trail is going cold...

In her latest thrilling read, queen of romantic suspense Irene Hannon outdoes herself with a fast-paced tale of fear, deception, and just the right dose of romance.

When the police aren't the most cooperative after her teenaged sister disappeared, Laura turns to a PI for help.  As Dev and Laura follow leads and search out people , they discover that she was kidnapped and just didn't run away. Finding her, however, proves challenging and a bit dangerous.

Irene Hannon delivers again.  Her books, while somewhat formulaic, contain the perfect combination of romance, faith and clean suspense.  I think she's outdone herself with this story's villain.  He was truly chilling and her exploration of Darcy's kidnapping was well done with some twists I didn't exactly see coming.

Second in the Private Justice series, the story stands alone just fine. A terrific read.

Available August 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. Thanks to Lanette at Baker Publishing for the opportunity to review this book.  You can learn more about Irene Hannon here.  You can purchase your own copy here.
