Lisa Harris has written a great series of mystery and suspense, The Nikki Boyd Files. In this first book of the series, “Vendetta”, we are led through a maze of mysterious events which also lead to multiple murders, seeming with no reason. Nikki and her team of investigators as members of the Tennessee Missing Persons Task Force, follow the clues, the suspects, the victims and the crimes to solve the abduction of a young girl. This case harkens back to ten years earlier when Nikki’s sister, Sarah, was abducted, never to be seen again. Nikki has been on the lookout for her abductor ever since. Is this the work of the same person or a copy-cat crime?
Into the mix, we find Tyler Grant, the widower of Nikki’s best friend, Katie. The two of them are just discovering the feelings they have for one another and striving not to feel guilty that with Katie’s death, they lean on each other for comfort in their grief. Neither one expected their feelings to escalate as they did.
This mystery kept me on the edge of my seat all the way to the end. The list of suspects grew along with the dead bodies. I could not put the book down and will definitely continue to read any books by Lisa Harris.
Revell has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
