This is the third book in the US Marshals series and wraps up a case revealed in the first book. There are other cases that take the focus off of the murder of Luke James, husband of Madison. If I had not read the first two books, it would have been hard to follow the main thread. Even so, I thought a few things needed explaining.
Partners Madison and Jonas are in the thick of it again. They are trying to find a missing mother, baby and babysitter, encountering puzzling clues and dangerous people. They are also putting off the discussion of where their relationship is going. They are still working through past hurts. “I have learned that pain and tragedy become part of who we are. But that does not mean that you cannot move forward despite the pain.” They do rely on their faith when they find themselves overwhelmed and both comment that they each challenge each other in good ways.
Lots of twists and turns and cringeworthy criminals. Absolutely worth the read.
There are hints of a story about a secondary character. I am looking forward to the next book by this author.
