Publisher's Summary

She found love on Death Row with her prison pen pal. She’s been missing ever since. Can Jessica Shaw track her down?

A missing persons case should be pretty straightforward for private investigator Jessica Shaw. After all, it’s what she does best. But this latest case proves to be anything but straightforward.

Christine Ryan is desperate to find her childhood friend Veronica Lowe. Veronica disappeared more than fifteen years ago, not long after having a child with a Death Row inmate, notorious serial killer Travis Dean Ford. When Ford’s widow, Jordana, is murdered in the same way as his victims, Christine fears Veronica and her daughter will be next. If they’re even still alive...

Discovering that both Veronica and Jordana were members of the Lonely Hearts Club, a pen pal service for women who want to write to men in prison, Jessica realizes she needs to find Veronica before the killer does. But as Jessica follows the leads it begins to feel like someone is following her. Travis has been dead for years, so who is hunting the Lonely Hearts?

Everyone is a valley girl!

It was an interesting theme and story but the performance ruined it. All the characters sound like valley girls and all the men sound alike.

extremely unrealistic

For a PI, Jessica really failed to do some actual investigating. it would have been very easy to verify the identity of her client before she got duped, but somehow she didn't? Shoddy work. She then didn't notice she had a tail following her for hundreds if miles... how? Also, if was never explained just how Mia was conceived with her father in prison on death row.

Most Unaware

She is the most unaware PI that I would never want to hire. It is like she is lucky to solve a case, she can't fight. My Goodness....Lol

Disappointed

I have listened to and liked the other stories in this series but Book 4 was a let down. It was very easy to figure out who the main villain was early on in the story. It didn't get any better as it progressed. The author fed the listener the lines right up to figuring it all out. I kept waiting for the crescendo music to start when it came to a reveal part. That's how easy it was to figure things out. The other stories in the series were not like this at all. They made you think, listen carefully and try to figure the characters out. This installment sort of laid everyone out for the listener and no real surprises or twists. Unfortunate. Even the part with the love interest, Connor and what was happening with that storyline. Very easy to see what was going to happen. I hope the next in the series is better.

Characters going the wrong direction.

A really good story. I often guess the killer right away in the book, and this one took awhile. Really well written. I was glad that Jessica was starting to mature an then I was wrong but no. I now visualize her as looking very hard for her age too much smoking, too much junk food, more tattoos, more drinking and of course she hops in bed quickly again. This character went the wrong direction. The story itself was super good, with lots of interesting characters as well as some old ones (just enough to keep it cohesive with the series but not mundane or trite). Note to author, no one under the age of 75 uses the term "Frisco" to refer to San Francisco and no one drives down Hwy 1 along the central coast when they are in a hurry.
