Review by Booklist Reviews

It starts with a chance encounter in an airport terminal. Joshua Fields meets a woman named Morgan in a gift shop; soon they are having a drink in a bar while each is waiting for their flight. As they are parting, Morgan gives Joshua a passionate kiss goodbye. Now he's hooked. When he later learns that she has been reported missing, he throws aside all his job responsibilities and searches for her. Of course, nothing is as it seems, and, when he learns the truth, he will wish that he had not gone after her at all. It takes a leap of faith to believe Joshua would abandon everything in an attempt to find a woman he hardly knows, but once that leap has been made, readers will find themselves thoroughly immersed in this riveting thriller. The why behind it all turns out to be both compelling and surprising. A perfect book to read on a long flight. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Frequent business traveler Joshua Fields, the nice guy narrator of this fast-paced thriller from Bell (Somebody's Daughter), is in the Atlanta airport when he bumps into an attractive woman, Morgan Reynolds, who, after a second encounter, agrees to join him for a drink while they wait for their respective flights. They sit down in a bar, where Joshua immediately feels close to the obviously troubled Morgan. On parting, she gives him a passionate kiss, but warns that "we're never going to see each other again." In Kentucky, Det. Kimberly Givens struggles to resolve two missing persons' cases. When one victim turns up at an abandoned family amusement park, the police focus their hunt on finding Morgan, who they suspect of killing the person found in the amusement park. Meanwhile, Joshua, who's dissatisfied with his mundane home life and job, pursues Morgan across the country. As the suspense grows, the question remains: is she guilty of murder or just a damsel in distress? Bell keeps the reader guessing whodunit until the end. Fans of romantic sentimental thrillers will find a lot to like. Agent: Massie & McQuilkin. (July) Copyright 2019 Publishers Weekly.
