Hide and Seek by Lynette Eason
I admit to shedding a few tears while reading this story. It is a timely story that I read this week with 3 people who were kidnapped 10 years ago all over the news right now. I hope more missing kids are returned home safely and sooner.
Erica has looked for her missing child for 3 years. Molly was taken from a field trip to the zoo at age 3. Erica marriage fell apart and spent the time looking for lost children. A new lead has come in. Molly's clothes with a finger print were found at a crack house.
Erica went to the crack house looking for Lydia who was drug addict. She will do anything to get her daughter back. She hears her scream and rushes in and sees Lydia being attacked and intervenes. Right behind her is Max a P.I. and cops. Lydia gets away.
Max is Lydia brother and he wants to help Lydia. He does not believe she had anything to do with the kidnapping. Max knows she is in trouble.
Max and Erica agree to work together to find Lydia for different reasons. Max used to be a cop. While they are there together in the car the are involved in a hit and run accident. The car belongs to Erica's younger brother who is on drugs.
The story is full of drama, action and faith. It is a emotional book. Everyone it seems has family problems. Drugs are big part of the problem. Erica has faith that Peter was not trying to kill her. Max believes in his sister. Max has trouble with the homeless because one killed his fiancé during a robbery. Erica is helping the homeless first as a way to find her daughter but than really wanted to help.
I like reading Lynette Eason books. She tells clean, suspenseful stories.
I was given this ebook to read and asked in return to give honest review from Netgalley.

SHE WON'T GIVE UP
Erica James has spent the past three years as a skip tracer, hunting down others and hoping one day it will lead to her kidnapped daughter. Now she has a new suspect-Max Powell's missing sister. Max, a private investigator, has found evidence that connects the two missing girls, and together, he and Erica search for answers. The closer they get to finding answers, the stronger their feelings for each other become. But the kidnapper will stop at nothing-including murder-to keep them from finding Erica's daughter.
