Title: Seconds to Live
Author: Melinda Leigh
Star: 5 out of 5
Melinda Leigh has the ability to pull readers in from page one. I truly had no interesting in Mac's story he didn't seem like an interesting characters in the other books. However I wanted to see how all the characters developed and where they were going.
Mac was the wild child in the family. Life choices made his direction is life clear but when he returns home he finds that maybe those choices are not what he really wanted.
Melinda Leigh drives home the importance of family. I enjoyed how each family member realizes they need each others support even though they were raised to be independent and strong.
Seconds to live has the perfect blend of action to keep readers locked in until the last page.
AC From Netgalley and the Author
Wildlife biologist Mac Barrett avoided his hometown of Scarlet Falls for years—too many bad memories. But when he receives the news that his father is dying, he rushes home only to discover he’s too late. Shaken, Mac retreats to his remote cabin seeking peace and solace. Instead, he crashes his jeep to narrowly avoid running over the naked body of a woman lying in the road. Even more disturbing, when he regains consciousness, the body is gone.
Police detective Stella Dane wants to believe Mac, even if his story about the vanishing body seems far-fetched. But when Mac’s description matches the missing woman she’s been searching for, it raises a disturbing question: How does a dead body disappear?
Mac and Stella will have to work together to find the answer and catch a psychotic kidnapper—and quickly. The killer has a deadly message to send, and the case is about to become personal…
