One of Kate’s friends suddenly disappears one day, and Kate discovers her house ransacked and an unknown woman bleeding out from a bullet wound. Suddenly, Kate and Crescent Creek PD are on high alert and are working overtime to find her. Kate is now worried sick about the possibility that she’s already dead.
It was nice getting back into this book series again. We get to find out more about the town in this book, and like in all small towns, there are feuds and harmless competitions between people. The victim in this book was one of Kate’s friends so she has a vested interest in the case. Though Kate only really does some legwork and speaks with Tipper’s boyfriend. It was still interesting to see how this case advanced.
Trent and Kate’s relationship was put on display in this book, though they really just act like siblings with their banter. Kate and Zack’s relationship is still so cute, it’s just sad that Zack wasn’t present through a good chunk of the book. There were some minor inconsistencies through the book, nothing that really changes much, just things like Zack was supposed to help out at the store and that never happened.
I still really liked this book and it was an interesting read.
