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!
