I have said it before and I will say it again…I think that Kendra Elliot is an under rated Author who does not get the attention that she deserves. Everything I have read by her, I have really enjoyed. This Novella, although enjoyable, was my least favorite of her work.
This book is #2 in a series and I did not read the first one. Would have that cause me to enjoy this book more? Perhaps. I do believe that I was given enough of the backstory to grasp what is happening in this novella. There is a horrible storm going on that has cut off a small town from surrounding areas. During this time, a child has gone missing and two FBI agents have been found shot to death inside their vehicle.
Police officers Stevie and her husband Zane are trying to find the missing boy. They also know that the person responsible for the missing boy and the two dead agents may be stuck in their rain drenched town. It is only a matter of time before rain stops and the roads are drive-able or the murderer kills again.
I think I would have enjoyed this more if it were a full blown novel and Elliot had more time to flesh out her story. Again, I did not read part 1 so perhaps I am missing something but this novella was just lacking for me. I didn’t really feel invested in the story or the characters. This was sad for me as I am a Kendra Elliot fan. I will still keep reading her books as I enjoy her work. I wish more people read her work, but I don’t feel this is the best book/novella to star with.
I received a copy of this book from Montlake Romance and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
