The author, Janice Cantore writes in her book that she "writes suspense novels designed to keep readers engrossed and leave them inspired". I can truly say, she does just that in her stories. They are filled with suspense, they keep you wanting to read to see what will happen next, and you leave

her books inspired by the characters. The fact that she has police enforcement in her background helps to make her stories feel that much more true and realistic.

This is book two in the "Pacific Coast Justice" series, and I like how this story picks up where book one left off. Could you read it as a stand alone; yes. But I highly recommend you start from book one and read these stories in the order they were written. You will not be disappointed.

There is a lot going on in this story. Carly is a police officer working hard to try and save her relationship with her former husband Nick (and I appreciated the fact that their relationship was being transformed because each of them had a new relationship with the Lord, which is what helped them through the hard times yet to come). Her police officer partner, Joe finds his wife and son taken to the hospital where his wife is near death and while in the hospital his son A.J. is abducted. Carly's roommate, Andrea works at the hospital and Carly is having problems getting along with her roommate who seems to have it in for her for some reason. Then there is the news reporter Alex Trejo who likes Carly a lot and makes his feelings known to her. Add to all this Carly is trying to figure out who has taken A.J., and uncovers more than anyone bargained for in her search for the missing boy. There are no boring parts to this story. It is fast paced and keeps your interest throughout the story. Most of the characters in this story you meet and get to know in book one, "Accused". Looking forward to book three in the series!
