Trapped by Irene Hannon
Irene Hannon's romantic suspense novels are always page turners. Trapped is book 2 in the Private Justice Series. The first book is called Vanished. My review is here. This one centers around another member of the Phoenix private investigation firm, James Devlin. Otherwise known as Dev, he is hired by Laura Griffiths to locate her half-sister. Darcy had runaway after living with Laura for the short time since her father died. Dev knows the faster they find her the better because time on the street is hard, and it is easy to fall in with the wrong crowd. Meanwhile, Darcy thinks she has found some good friends. People are not always as they first appear.
This is a fast read that kept me fully engaged. I do feel that the general plot of these books is always the same; they are still fun to read. Filled with suspense, mystery, and romance, there is a small element of faith included; although at times, it feels a little forced. The characters are very well developed, and I enjoy the backstory shared through conversation and memories. It adds to the overall affect of the novel.
I did receive a free copy in exchange for this honest review.
