Review: Missing (The Nikki Boyd Files #2)

Missing (The Nikki Boyd Files #2) by Lisa Harrismissing
Reviewed by: Pam Graber
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Revell
Publication Date: July 5,2016

Nikki Boyd is the latest strong heroine from Lisa Harris. Nikki is a detective with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations assigned to their Missing Persons unit. In “Missing,” Nikki and her partner, Jack, are called in to help locate Lucy and Mac Hudson, a kindergarten teacher and her husband who are missing from their home where two dead bodies have been found. When Mac is found dead on Nikki’s friend Tyler Grant’s boat, suspicion is aimed at someone Nikki trusts implicitly. As Nikki and Jack follow the clues, the bodies continue to stack up. Can they find Lucy before she becomes one of them? Can they protect themselves and Nikki’s loved ones from an unseen enemy?

The action in this book is rapid-fire. Just when you relax your guard, Harris hits you with a new complication. Whether its murder by sniper, abduction by goons, or something equally sinister, her characters must constantly watch their backs for the next thing that’s coming. You will find yourself turning pages quickly to see how Nikki gets out of THIS mess or THAT scrape. Sprinkled throughout the book is Nikki’s newly discovered love for Tyler. Tyler’s wife, Katie, was Nikki’s best friend, and when Katie died, Nikki stepped in to help with their son, Liam. In the course of being a friend to Tyler and Liam, Nikki lost her heart. Will the grieving Tyler step out of his grief and see Nikki as more than a friend?

Lisa Harris has quickly become one of my favorite romantic suspense writers and she has penned another winner in “Missing.” This is book two in her Nikki Boyd Files series, but you don’t need to read book one to become completely engrossed in “Missing.” I’m looking forward to book three, “Pursued,” coming out in the spring of 2017. (The excerpt of “Pursued” included at the end of “Missing” gives a hair-raising glimpse into what the book will be like. I can’t wait!)

Rated PG: Lots of people die, some in pretty spectacular ways. Not really a book for young children.
