Gone Without a Trace by Patricia Bradley

About the Book
It's been more than two years since homicide detective Livy Reynolds's cousin disappeared from Logan Point. Unlike most people in her hometown, Livy has never believed that Robyn left voluntarily. When Dallas private investigator Alex Jennings contacts Livy concerning a missing senator's daughter who was last seen in Logan Point, she notices eerie similarities between the two disappearances. But with self-doubt plaguing her and an almost instant dislike of Jennings, Livy is finding this investigation an uphill battle. With her future in law enforcement on the line, can she find a way to work with a man who is her polar opposite?

Award-winning author Patricia Bradley keeps readers on the edge of their seats as they anticipate the outcome of the case--and the relationship between Livy and Alex--which is anything but certain.

My Thoughts
After enjoying this author's previous two novels I was happy to have the chance to read this one. Especially since I'd liked Livy's character in the other books and because the long-standing mystery of Robyn's disappearance was going to be solved!
I really enjoyed the suspense and mystery of this story and the author did a fantastic job of keeping you guessing until the very end. There were several suspects and anytime I thought I had a guess on who it was, something else would happen to make me think it was a someone different! There were a couple instances where the characters would explain why doing something a certain way wouldn't work and they'd make a second plan, but then they would turn around and do it the first way, which annoyed me a bit but other than that the plot was well done! I really liked all of the characters and had fun catching up with the ones from the first two books! I also liked how we got not only Alex and Livy's romance but also got some of Chase and Robyn's story. There were some corny moments at the end but all in all in was a good read!
