Sarah☆☆☆☆
This is another fabulous white-knuckle adventure from Melinda Leigh. At book six in the series, supermom Morgan and her colleagues are starting to feel as familiar as family. So, it’s a huge shock when Morgan’s friend, Lincoln’s girlfriend Olivia goes missing at the start of the story. With two weeks to go before their wedding, Morgan and Lance find themselves racing against time to find Olivia before it’s too late.

As always, I love the uneasy balance between Morgan’s personal life and her professional responsibilities. Morgan is a mum with young kids but she’s also a lawyer working with a firm of private investigators. Trying to balance it all is impossible and the compromises and guilt make Morgan feel wonderfully human and relatable. Olivia’s disappearance is both personal and professional for Morgan and there is a desperate feel to this book that makes it even more exciting than others in the series.

However. I don’t think this book has the most coherent plot in the series. I felt like too much of the story was spent with characters running round in circles. I feel like the whodunnit is too obvious – but there’s also too much time spent on potential suspects who don’t actually have anything to do with the kidnapping. It’s an odd mix of complaints and I’m surprised I’m complaining because the plotting in this series has been fantastic until now. I’m hoping things get better again with the next book because this is quickly becoming a favourite series and Morgan is already a favourite leading lady.

This is another great read by Leigh. This time we are searching for Sharp's girlfriend, Olivia. She has figured out that there might be a connection between a couple of different cold case murders. There are implications that someone might have been wrongly imprisoned and implications that someone doesn't want those cases to come to light for fear of being caught.

This is a tale that has so many moving parts. At times, it was somewhat confusing and redundant. I liked how we still were able to see into the main characters' lives – the wedding planning and the family (kids, nanny, and grandfather) were still a major part of the story.

In the search for Olivia, you catch glimpses of a different side of Sharp. It was a side that we normally don't see. He is normally so calm and collected, but with this side, he was frazzled at times.

Overall, this was still a fast-paced story, but the story seemed a little less focused than the previous ones. But I wouldn't be sad if we got to see them continue to solve crimes.
