Erica James works as a skip tracer in hopes that one day it will help her find her kidnapped daughter, Molly. Though it’s been three years, she refuses to give up. She gets a tip about a girl that might have been involved in the kidnapping. That’s where she meets Max Powell. He’s a former policeman turned private investigator. He’s looking for his sister, Lydia, who happens to be the girl they suspect of being involved. As Erica and Max work together to find the truth, they find themselves very attracted to each other. But how can anything come of it when they are opposite sides? Besides, the kidnapper is determined to remain unknown and will stop at nothing to keep it that way, including murder.
I thoroughly enjoyed Hide and Seek. It’s one of those stories with twists and turns and a few red herring along the way. Erica and Max are very likeable characters. Erica had backbone but was a reasonable heroine, which I liked. Max was a great leading man. Strong yet tender hearted. I think the author portrayed their feelings and emotions in a realistic way. The author also clearly showed that though bad things happen to us, God is still right there and we can trust Him. It’s always easy to trust God when things are going well, but will you trust Him when the bad stuff happens? One thing I appreciated was the fact that you really aren’t sure just who it is until right toward the end.
