⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨ 4.5 out of 5
A past case past will come back to haunt Paige Hood and Ryan Xander. The detectives who are working a case of a teenage girl who was abducted and held for a specific amount of time before she was murdered and placed where her parents would find her. The detectives will rack their brains looking for the serial killer and their lives could change forever due to this case.
I have come to love the families in the Count to Ten series. They are a close-knit family of both blood and non-blood related. The detectives and their families are so close you would think they were all blood related, but it’s the closeness and fierce loyalty to each other that tightens that bond.
Sophie Xander’s life changed a few months back when she found out that she was adopted and that her birth parents were not the best of society. She’s so upset with her parents for keeping this a secret for so long that she lashes out and disrespects them. Ryan and Sophia, Sophie’s adoptive parents, are patient with her for as long as they can be, but something has to give soon, or they could lose their little girl forever.
This series is full of twists, turns, suspense, and danger. They have brutal crimes but they are written so well that once I start reading them I lose track of time and hate to put it down, I give this book a 4.5-star review and I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the Count to Ten Series. They always keep me wishing for more. I am a little afraid of the next one though too because it is Ten.
