About the Book
Forensic genealogist Willow Anderson is following in her late grandfather’s footsteps in her quest for answers about a baby abducted from a hospital more than twenty years ago. When someone makes an attempt on Willow’s life to keep her from discovering the truth, help will come from an unexpected source.
Ex-FBI agent — and Willow’s ex-flame — Austin McKade readily offers to protect the woman he never should have let get away. Together they’ll follow where the clues lead them, even if it means Austin must face the past he’s spent much of his life trying to forget — and put Willow’s tender heart at risk.
I love the premise of this book — baby stolen from the hospital, ex-flames reunited, etc. I got a sense that the story will bring some intense action and that it will be an edge of your seat read. The start of the book was excellent. It grabbed my attention. I found myself guessing about involvement from characters close to Willow at the beginning. I kind of hoped that would be the outcome. I got deeper into the book and it still held my attention. I was so curious what was going on. However, the farther I got into the plot the more confused I became. But I plugged on and finished the book because I was that curious how it would turn out. In the end I was rather disappointed and very much confused about all the people. There were connections between people that I didn’t expect which was great. But I felt the story lacked the narrative to connect everything and give it a backbone. I was confused by all the names dropped towards the end. Where did this person come from? Why does he all of a sudden have the ability to kill so and so? What in the world? These were all questions I found myself asking as I finished the book. I needed more meat there to explain everything and to make it not seem like a quick exit. I ended up giving the book 3 stars out of 5 because of the seeming lack of development at the end. I wasn’t upset I read the book I just felt meh…
I received a copy of this book from Revell’s blogger program. I was in no way required to write a positive review. All thoughts are my own.
