Publisher's Summary

Ever since a devastating family tragedy 17 years ago, Grace Bighill has struggled to keep her remaining family from falling apart. Then the discovery of her mother's body in the woods unearths a connection to a decades-old murder case, and Grace is dragged into a politician's bitter bid for revenge. 

Constable Mike Davenport's days in Aspen Lake are numbered. He's ready to take his next step up the career ladder somewhere a lot more cosmopolitan. He's avoided any emotional attachments, despite having fallen hard for a certain stubborn local. But when a body turns up, Mike's careful intentions collapse in the face of Grace's grief and her exhaustive efforts to care for her family. 

A search for answers leads Grace and Mike down a twisted path proving no one can escape their roots. But someone might die trying.

Gone

I haven't read the first two books.I liked this book,the storyline was good.I had a hard time with the 'flow' of the thing.It seemed choppy to me.There were too many names to keep seperate,BUT they may have been in the other books I missed.Narration by Carly Kincaid was good,but there was the flow issue. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.'

Enough suspense to have you sit down and pay attention

This is a small town with secrets and loyalty toward its own. The town gossips but rallies when necessary. It is also about caring for family while neglecting that which is important to the caregiver. But when a man from away challenges the expected with possibilities, many beliefs are challenged for love. The narrator brings this story to life.

Fast-paced Suspense and Romance in a Small Town!

This audiobook is my first book by this author, but is actually the third in the series. As far as I can tell, each book is standalone, but the community and setting is the same.

I really enjoyed Karyn Good's style of writing. She does not build up to the story but jumps right in, which is interesting because the mystery is an unsolved missing person's case. Only the person isn't missing but dead and there appears to be something murky going on. The actual crime isn't the start of the action, though definitely a big piece in the puzzle.

Grace Bighill has a lot on her plate. Her family is complicated and her job situation is even more so. Additionally there is her unrequited feelings for a certain police constable, Mike Davenport. These two character are extremely complex and, on the surface, could not be more opposite. Grace is a small town girl and Mike craves a chance to return to the big city. But before he can leave, there is a body to identify. Apparently, this town has layers of secrets and finding the remains of this body could be just the catalyst required to revealing them.

Family is central to this book. There are wrongs to right and mysteries to solve. Karyn weaves a complicated tapestry of fascinating characters and even more fascinating back stories. I plan to listen to the earlier books in the series now. Even though this book is stand-alone, I am captivated by this little community that Karyn has created.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
