Lisa Harris’ “Missing” is a fast-paced, complex mystery surrounding a woman who disappears after an attack on her home.
While this is the second in a series, it works as well a standalone — although I now want to go back and read “Vendetta.”
The character of Nikki was realistic and flawed, as were the secondary characters.
I really loved the relationship Nikki had with her co-workers and friends, and would have loved to see more interactions with her family.
Here’s hoping another installment in the series comes out soon.
Harris did a great job of ratcheting up tension and keeping readers guessing what actually was going on.
I also felt like the emotional aspects of Nikki’s life were handled well — Harris always seemed to know when to pull back if it would be too much.
Only a couple of times did I feel that something “came too easy” — one of which has to do with Nikki’s brother — and seeing as there is a previous novel, I could be missing some backstory regarding that.
Overall, I really enjoyed this novel and look forward to continuing the Nikki Boyd Files in the future.
I gave “Missing,” published by Revell in July, four out of five stars on Goodreads.
