The devastating loss of Elle Devereaux’s parents is made even more distressing by the news that their once-successful company is now bankrupt. What follows is a series of nightmares, an unusual discovery at her parents’ home, and an internet search that soon has Elle traveling across the country in search of a long-lost sister she has no memory of. Or does she? Private Investigator Gabe Sandoval left the police force after a workplace tragedy and has lived a half-life at best ever since. The one bright spot is his friend group, especially bestie and coworker Alex. When yet another young woman shows up in town claiming to be Alex’s once-kidnapped sister, Gabe is skeptical, determined to spare his friend any more heartbreak. But the magnetic pull he feels toward Elle is hard to resist, even as the danger that followed her to Boston swirls ever closer.
VERDICT James (Caught in the Current) explores weighty subjects in this story that could have been more fully developed—living with survivor’s guilt, discovering loved ones aren’t who or what they professed to be, finding family members who were a long-held secret. The uneven writing and a mystery that seems to resolve itself behind the scenes make the appeal mainly to series completists. For collections where the author’s previous books circulate well.
