When a distraught man comes in looking for his older brother, Katie is thrown for a loop. His last social media update was a picture he had taken on Sky High’s porch. Katie is thrown into looking for the brother as well as digging up the family’s past. She might have bitten a little more than she could chew.

It was actually a fairly interesting story. The mystery is actually based on something that started 6 years before the actual story. Due to the interesting introduction, we get to see Katie actually dig into complete strangers pasts due to the implication of her shop. I noticed that Kate is working a lot quicker than the police until the end, it almost feels like playing catch up. I’ve noticed that this is starting to be a theme in these books.

Kate seems to be getting more comfortable in her relationships, not only while dealing with Trent and Dina but also with Zac. Trent seems to finally be accepting what happened in the past and moving on because Katie has obviously not let that stop her. Trent has also become more of a character and less of the caricature of a police. We also get to see the backgrounds of all the parties that were involved in the initial crime as well as the current missing persons. It was interesting how it was fully explored in this book without appearing dry.

I really enjoyed this book, it is a great continuation.
