Book Description

To bring her sister home for the holidays

They’ll put everything on the line.

Private investigator Shawn West is stunned when the attack victim he rescues is Addy Williams—the one woman he never forgot. She’s turning a quiet upstate New York town inside out to bring her missing sister home by Christmas. Shawn offers to help if she’ll provide a cover for his own investigation into a suspicious company in town, but can they work together to find Addy’s sister…or are they already too late?

From Harlequin Intrigue: Seek thrills. Solve crimes. Justice served.

Adelaide Williams was on a quest to find her missing sister and was getting no help from the local authorities.

When she was attacked on the street, Shawn West, a security firm owner, came to her rescue and offered to help find her sister.

The two of them had a past and, despite their predicament, their attraction was palpable.

As with the first book in the series Pursuit of the Truth (tap the title to read my review), Missing at Christmas is full of action and romantic moments.

The missing of Addy’s sister was interconnected to a series of events that kept me turning the pages.

I love a slow-burn romance, and although not the focus of the story, I enjoyed the MCs’ relationship and all the pent-up emotions.

Another great installment in this fast-paced series!

Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
