Vendetta by Lisa Harris

No one needs to push Nikki Boyd to excel on the Tennessee Missing Persons Task Force. The case of her own missing sister, still unsolved after ten years, is the driving force in her work. When a Polaroid photo of a missing girl shows up at a crime scene, Nikki quickly recognizes similarities to the past. The closer she gets to the abductor, the more she feels this case has become personal, and she is not the hunter . . . but the hunted.

With this explosive first book in The Nikki Boyd Files, award-winning author Lisa Harris takes you on a fast-paced pursuit of justice that will have you holding your breath until the heart-stopping finish.

Nikki is rappelling down the side of a mountain when she gets the call that a teenager is missing.  It was supposed to be her day off as she is with her best friends’ husband, Tyler Grant.  They are commiserating on the one year anniversary of her best friend Katie’s death.  Nikki can’t say no to a missing child.  Tyler goes along as he is a psychologist and wants to help. 

Nikki’s character is one with a strong personality.  But she is guilt ridden and blames herself for the disappearance of her sister.  That’s why she became a police officer and joined the task force.  Tyler is a former Special Ops Ranger and also blames himself for his wife’s death.  They will both do everything in their power to find the missing teen.  It’s interesting to watch Nikki and Tyler interact with each other and watch their relationship grow that neither one of them is aware of.  They are both struggling with their relationship God as a result of the tragedy in their lives.  This book also shows that there needn’t be foul language or sex scenes to be a good book.

I have become a fan of Lisa Harris’ books in the last year or so and this one did not disappoint me.  I am looking forward to the next Nikki Boyd book.

I was given this book by the publisher for an honest review.   I was not compensated in any way.
