Nikki Boyd's flight into Nashville was routine--up until the crash landing at the airport. When the dust settles, Nikki discovers that the woman who had been seated next to her on the plane is missing--and no one will admit she was ever there. Erika Hamilton had been flying to Nashville with an air marshal as a key witness in an upcoming grand jury trial. When she flees from the crash, is she running from trouble or straight into it? Before Nikki can even see her family, she and her team are pulled into a missing persons case where the motives are as unclear as the suspects.
I have a habit of trying making myself try different things so I don't get into a rut. I'm a person generally opposed to change, and that includes my reading choices. But I started reading Lisa Harris's Nikki Boyd Files because I thought I needed to read some novels set in modern day. I never do, and I typically hate the morality and culture of "modern" romance, so...mysteries and thrillers.
The thing is, though, I'm not drawn to the writing style modern novels like these use. For that reason, after reading the first two books in this series, I wasn't planning on reading the third...but then I read that synopsis, and it just sounded great and Hitchcock-esque. But in reality, it was more typical of the suspense genre than I wanted. Perhaps as an episode of a television crime drama I would have liked it more, but overall the story rang a little empty to me; I had a hard time empathizing with the characters and it lacked that indefinable spark that captures my attention in a good book.
Anyway, I did try. I just don't think this genre is really for me, as much as I've tried to like it.
I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
