Synopsis

An unsolved case. A tempest of memories. The future’s at stake—and time is running out . . . Gwen Marcey has done a good job keeping the pain of her past boxed up. But as she investigates the case of a missing child in Lapwai, Idaho, details keep surfacing that are eerily similar to her childhood traumas. She doesn’t believe in coincidences. So what’s going on here? No one knows more about the impact of the past than the Nez Perce people of Lapwai. Gwen finds herself an unwelcome visitor to some, making her investigation even more difficult. The questions keep piling up, but answers are slow in coming—and the clock is ticking for a missing little girl. Meanwhile, Gwen’s ex-husband is threatening to take sole custody of their daughter. As Gwen’s past and present collide, she’s in a desperate race for the truth. Because only truth will ensure she still has a future.

My Thoughts!

This was my first read from parker, but I was blown away at how amazing it was! Parker did  an amazing job at interacting with readers on an emotional and intellectual level. I love how well written this book was and how relatable the characters were. The plot thickened with each page turn and I couldn’t put it down! It took only a few hours for me to finish this book.  It’s full of action and suspense and really makes you think. We all have things that we keep boxed up inside, but this read reminds us that everything can’t stay boxed up forever.

While this book is the 4th book in the series, it did a great job at standing on its own. I didn’t feel like I was missing pieces. However, I do plan to pick up the previous 3 now. I highly recommend this read to others!
