Nadia Stafford, with her dual lives of hitwoman extraordinaire and outdoor pursuits lodge owner, gets worried when one of her employees, a young girl with a baby goes missing. Neither the local police nor the girls own mother seem to care. Jack comes to stay at the lodge after breaking an ankle following a job and he wants to help. Quinn comes on board confusing Nadia further where he is concerned and then Evelyn invites herself into the mix, hinting at a vigilante organisation she thinks Nadia would be perfect for. As always with Evelyn, is her help worth the cost.
This book progressed much more slowly than the first one but I think given the investigative nature of the plot, it needed to be much less frenetic than the first. I still love the character of Nadia and her principles, and the chemistry between her and Jack continues to cloud how she feels about Quinn. I think I preferred the first book more but it was definitely enjoyable, the plot solid and I was disappointed to find that there aren’t more books in the series forthcoming. I hope that changes in the future!
