Both he and Agent McLane hole up in the victim’s family home. Every second counts in a kidnapping case, and the stakes keep rising the longer the girl is missing. As Ava and Mason struggle to hold the family together in their darkest hour, the two investigators find themselves drawn to each other.
There was a good balance going on between the kidnapping storyline and Mason and Ava’s separate personal life struggles. I also thought it was interesting to see how one of those storylines intertwined with another at the height of the story.
I did wish that the villain behind it all was a little more sinister. What I mean is I wish it was more of psychological thriller suspense instead of an emotionally driven one. Regardless of the machinations, the story was solid, the suspense was palpable and the romance was complementary to the story, yet not overpowering.
