Sharp Investigations is made up of three people; defense
attorney Morgan Dane, and private investigators Lance Kruger
and Sharp, who also owns the business. They are brought into
a case that could easily involve a serial killer. Someone is
kidnapping young women. These women either are never seen
again or they are found dead.
The Sharp Investigations members are pulled into the action
when the husband of the latest vanishing woman comes to
them. He wants to hire them into looking at his wife's case
because he has very little confidence in the sheriff and his
deputies. The sheriff does not seem to want to do his job so
the husband takes a different route. He knows that his wife
would never have left their children or him, especially when
they have a newborn with pretty serious colic.
Sharp, Lance, and Morgan take on the case and start digging
in their heels to get the information they need in order to
find Chelsea and bring her back home to her husband Tim and
the babies. However, this is turning out to be more
complicated than anyone would have thought. When another
woman vanishes, they realize that this murderer is only
escalating. They know that they have to work hard and fast
if they want to catch this person before he kills again.
While Morgan and Lance are just on the edge of exploring
their attraction and feelings for each other, Morgan
realizes that she might have become a target of this evil
person. On top of that, she has to deal with some personal
family issues that just keep getting worse.
Hopefully, these things will all be resolved once the killer
Melinda Leigh has added another chapter to the world that
she has created. This is the second book in a trilogy but
can be read as a standalone. She writes with descriptive
narrative and strong characters. She also comes up with some
pretty creepy situations, as she has done in HER LAST
GOODBYE. I never had a chance to actually slow down and
breathe while reading this spine-tingling tale of
kidnapping, perversion, and murder.
HER LAST GOODBYE is the kind of book that makes you want to
stay safely locked in your home or at least you will keep
looking over your shoulder when you DO go out. You may ask
yourself if that man behind you seems to be overly
interested in what you are doing and where you are going.
Does he seem to be following you? Could he have some
nefarious plans for you? Seriously, I had to have most of
the lights in my house on as well as all doors and windows
locked once I began this harrowing journey presented before me.
If you happen to enjoy scary, mysterious situations and love
to follow along on the chase, HER LAST GOODBYE is the ideal
book for you. It also has just the right amount of romance
to hook you and reel you in. Happily, this has been slated
as the second book in the trilogy, so we have at least one
more book to look forward to as you will get very caught up
with these amazing characters. I promise you that you will
