Monica’s stomach fluttered with excitement as she told the interesting man she’d been flirting with online for weeks all about her weekend plans. He was a great match, and they had so many things in common. But sometimes your life can come down to one single bad decision…
NYPD Computer-crimes detective Connor Mitchel’s sister is missing. As he combs through his sister’s life, he realizes Monica might not have been this killer’s first target—or his last. In a twisted game of cat and mouse, Connor thinks he’s finally found the man responsible for his sister’s disappearance. Unfortunately, he’ll first need to convince the shy, distrustful Evelyn Price she could be the next victim tangled in the murderer’s web if she doesn’t agree to help him catch the killer. But just as Connor and Evelyn close in on their quarry, the killer has one last trick up his sleeve that could trap them all…
ABOUT DANIELLE M. HAAS
Danielle grew up with a love of reading, partly due to her namesake—Danielle Steele. It seemed as though she was born to write out the same love stories she devoured while growing up.
She attended Bowling Green State University with a dream of studying creative writing, but the thought of sharing her work in front of a group of strangers was enough to make her change her major to Political Science.
After college she moved across the state of Ohio with her soon-to-be husband. Once they married and had babies, she decided to stay home and raise her children. Some days her sanity slipped further across the line to crazy town so she decided to brush off her rusty writing chops and see what happened.
Danielle now spends her days running kids around, playing with her beloved dog, and typing as fast as she can to get the stories in her head written down. She loves to write contemporary romance with relatable characters that make her readers’ hearts happy, as well as fast-paced romantic suspense that leaves them on the edge of their seats. Her story ideas are as varied and unpredictable as her everyday life.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
Police Officer Connor Mitchell is beside himself his sister is missing, and he has no idea where she is. The police have no leads and the only lead he has is tenuous at best. The only change in her life is the dating service she signed up for and the one person she chatted with on the site. Connor is following leads and working with a PI to find his sister, but he’s afraid that he won’t find her in time to save her. She’s all the family he has left and can’t lose her too.
Evelyn is looking for a job to keep the nice apartment that she lives in with her best friend, Lacy and her daughter. She needs a job that she can do from home because she doesn’t do well in crowds or in public at all really. Her childhood taught her that monsters were real and that they could be anyone, they didn’t necessarily look like monsters. When she has the opportunity to do website work for a high school classmate, she meets with him but she’s jumpy the whole time, and when she receives a phone call from a police officer asking her about her meeting with Gabriel, she is wary of the officer and his questions.
This was an action-packed book with suspense, danger, and a twisted minded psychopath. There are no leads or evidence of where Monica Mitchell has disappeared to, but her brother is determined to find her and will stop at nothing to get her back. The characters in this story were well written and entertaining to read. I really enjoyed the story but thought that there could have been more to the ending of the story. There should have been some follow through with the ending. With that being said, I still give the book a 4-star review because it is well written and full of action and suspense with a twist, and suggest it to readers who enjoy psychological thrillers, police procedural, or characters that show their strength even after being beaten down or destroyed most of their lives. Their real strength comes out when they find the will and the one person that will be beside them no matter what. There are characters in this story that are twisted but they will be discovered, and justice will be served.
