"Jayne Ann Krentz, the New York Times bestselling author of Secret Sisters, delivers a thrilling novel of the deceptions we hide behind, the passions we surrender to, and the lengths we'll go to for the truth ... When Charlotte Sawyer is unable to contact her step-sister, Jocelyn, to tell her that one her closest friends was found dead, she discovers that Jocelyn has vanished. Beautiful, brilliant--and reckless--Jocelyn has gone off the grid before, but never like this. In a desperate effort to find her, Charlotte joins forces with Max Cutler, a struggling PI who recently moved to Seattle after his previous career as a criminal profiler went down in flames--literally. Burned out, divorced and almost broke, Max needs the job. After surviving a near-fatal attack, Charlotte and Max turn to Jocelyn's closest friends, women in a Seattle-based online investment club, for answers. But what they find is chilling ... When her uneasy alliance with Max turns into a full-blown affair, Charlotte has no choice but to trust him with her life. For the shadows of Jocelyn's past are threatening to consume her--and anyone else who gets in their way ..."-- Provided by publisher.

A fun mystery thriller with the typical goodies and baddies and a nice tidy finish.

Wow this book blew me away. If you love Krentz you will not be disappointed. It had great characters and flowed well. Author has a way of pulling you into her stories.

Whenever you read a Jayne Ann Krentz novel you know exactly what you're going to get. A spunky heroine, a somewhat terse, yet sweet hero, a mystery, and a happy ending. It's an easy, fun read with the usual JAK writing style and quirky conversational ticks.

Charlotte is our regular JAK heroine - she thinks she's uninteresting and boring and her fiancé left her a week before the wedding (and left her with all the bills!). Our hero is Max, a down on his luck PI, who had to leave a high-powered career as a profiler in D.C. due to a case that went awry. Both of our intrepid main characters call themselves "a one foot in front of the other" kind of person. They both seem to think this isn't a good character trait. But of course, we readers know better.

Max is hired to look into a suspicious death, and Charlotte stumbles across him while her stepsister is away. Soon, they're dodging bullets, researching a decades old crime, and generally getting to know each other.

The mystery was fairly involved, although not too in-depth. A few people died, but nothing graphic or too violent. There were quite a few potential bad-guys in this one, and I will admit it did keep me guessing until the end. Like all JAK's this this isn't a suspenseful romance, it's a romantic suspense :)

I'm wondering if this will be book one of a series, and the other two will be about Cabot and Jack, Max's foster brothers. A fast read - good for a vacation, flight, or a beach - with a sweet romance, a good mystery and a satisfying conclusion.
