Missing in The Mountains ~ Julie Anne Lindsey

Today I'm highlighting Missing in the Mountains by Julie Anne Lindsey. This is book two and I didn't know there was a book one until I finished this one, so you can certainly read them out of order. Missing in the Mountains is only $1.99 on KindleBarnes & Noble & other sites right now, too! Read on for my review. 

To protect her family

she’ll need to trust a man from her past…

When Emma Hart witnesses her sister being kidnapped, the only person she can trust to keep her and her baby safe is army vet turned security expert Sawyer Lance. He immediately offers his help but is shocked to meet her young son—a boy who looks a lot like him. To protect their reunited family, Emma and Sawyer will have to find the kidnapper before he strikes again.

Missing in the Mountains was my first Julie Anne Lindsey, but it won't be my last. I loved this intrigue that was a wonderful mystery infused with a sweet second chance romance. From the first paragraph, you felt the suspense building. Emma's sister, Sara, knew something was coming for her, and she didn't want Emma and her four-month-old son, Henry, to be caught in the crossfire. Instead, when that something comes for her, Emma witnesses Sara be abducted by a man all in black. She hears his voice, but that's the only identifying feature she has of him.

Sawyer Lance is haunted. Haunted by the memories of his time in the Army and the men who died there. Back home and building a new life, he doesn't expect to get a phone call from the woman he left behind over a year ago, begging him to help her find her missing sister. The biggest surprise is yet to come for him, though, when he meets Henry for the first time.

Finding a new purpose in Emma and Henry, Sawyer does what he does best, protects and serves. He will help Emma find Sara and keep baby Henry and her safe while he does. Things don't always go as planned for him and more often than not they're caught up in a situation that is all danger and suspense, leaving you breathless to see who lives and who dies. The culmination of the story is perfectly paced and expertly executed in a way that keeps you turning the pages long into the night.

In the end, I loved the sweet HEA and the promise of a new couple and new mystery to come in this series. If you love a second chance romance expertly weaved into a suspenseful kidnapping and murder mystery then you don't want to skip Missing in the Mountains!
