Portrait of Vengeance By Carrie Stuart Parks Review
An unsolved case. A tempest of memories. The future’s at stake—and time is running out...
Gwen Marcey has done a good job of keeping the pain of her past boxed up. But as she investigates the case of a missing child in Lapwai, Idaho, details keep surfacing that are eerily similar to her childhood traumas. She doesn’t believe in coincidences. So what’s going on here?
No one knows more about the impact of the past than the Nez Perce people of Lapwai. Gwen finds herself an unwelcome visitor to some, making her investigation even more difficult. The questions keep piling up, but answers are slow in coming—and the clock is ticking for a missing little girl. Meanwhile, her ex-husband back home is threatening to take sole custody of their daughter.
As Gwen’s past and present collide, she’s in a desperate race for the truth. Because only truth will ensure she still has a future.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- Well this was a book four , and I had no previous knowledge of the other books so as a standalone I think that the author did a fine job. I would recommend reading the books in order though because I felt kind of cheated on the back story. This is obviously not a book for young children, yet it can be read by youth adult or older. I think that the true to life facts when encountering the suspense portions, make this a very good read.
