In an intense thriller that’s perfect for fans of Lee Child or Lisa Gardner, security specialist and PI Jamie Sinclair tackles a cold case that could cost her the one person who means the most to her.
Hardworking Jamie Sinclair can’t wait for the weekend. She plans to be off the clock and on the road to wine country with handsome military police officer Adam Barrett. But when a strung-out soldier takes an innocent woman hostage and forces his way into Jamie’s bedroom, everything changes.Jamie’s never seen the soldier before. But he’s no stranger to Barrett—and with one word he persuades Barrett to pack a duffel and leave Jamie in the lurch.
Jamie cannot fathom why Barrett would abandon her without explanation. But as the consequences of an unsolved crime threaten to catch up with him, a late-night phone call sends Jamie racing to Barrett’s hometown in upstate New York. In a tinderbox of shattered trust and long-buried secrets,Jamie must fight to uncover the truth about what really occurred one terrible night twenty years ago. And the secrets she discovers deep in Barrett’s past not only threaten their future together—they just might get her killed.
This is the 3rd book in the Jamie Sinclair series, and a great Junior entry! This was a super quick read, though I'm still not sure how well I like Adam and Jamie almost changing personalities. While I support female heroines saving the day, it makes me question why she would still be with that male character, as we know in real life it would have been over and done. You don't really need to have read the previous books, and it's probably you don't, as then you might be like me and rolling your eyes a lot during the book and wanting to shake Adam out of his personality change. But the mystery itself is very sound, and it will keeping you turning the pages. If you are looking for something new, check out this series!
