There's nothing more enjoyable than cracking open a new Lisa Harris book, and with her Nikki Boyd series, the pleasure has increased a thousand fold. If you want non-stop action, unrelenting suspense, heartbreaking drama and wonderful romance, you'll definitely want to read this book.

"Missing," is the second book in the series and this time, Nikki is on home turf as she tries to find a missing woman at the crux of a counterfeit drug conspiracy. You won't be able to put this book down once you start, and it will leave you eagerly awaiting the next installment.

Fans of romantic suspense cannot go wrong with author Lisa Harris. In the second book of her Nikki Boyd Files series, Missing, you’ve got the whole package: fast-paced action with twists and turns to keep both the characters and the reader off-balance and a developing romance that is very natural. While you can certainly read this novel as a standalone, I recommend you begin with Vendetta. You don’t want to miss anything from this talented author.

Nikki Boyd works on the Missing Person’s Task Force within the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. The last place they are usually called to is a murder scene, but two people are missing and time is running out as the murder count rises and the danger increases. There is also a very personal connection for Nikki. Her long time friend, Tyler is soon drawn into the case. Will Nikki be able to solve the case before it’s too late?

There are several elements that make Missing an excellent choice for those who like their suspense with sparks. Nikki and Tyler are credible and relatable characters with believable emotions and actions. Their relationship changes naturally one the course of the book. Both characters are believers in Christ and turn to Him for guidance and strength. Nikki’s dedication to her job stems from her own missing person experience and that story line and search for closure also continues in Missing. The all too real mystery involving counterfeit drugs and its impact on patient safety and well-being keeps the reader engaged and thinking. The third person account lets the reader in on the what Nikki discovers, but keeps you guessing up until the end. As the case is solved, there are a few loose ends in the unfolding romance between Nikki and Tyler and in Nikki’s sister’s own case — I’m really looking forward to more great writing, wonderful characters and action-packed suspense in book 3, Pursued.

Recommended,

Audience: adults.

This is a great second book in a series. I love Nikki Boyd and hope that sometime she a Tyler can work things out and get together. This book had many twists and turns and kept me on my toes. I didn't want to put this down. Nikki is trying to find a missing woman and having many harrowing experiences. I received this book from Revell and the author for a fair and honest opinion. ( )

Nikki is back! Yes, Nikki Boyd is back with another intriguing case to solve in Lisa Harris' Missing. After Vendetta (and reading the first look of Missing), I knew I had to read the second one in this series. And it is just as entertaining as the first.

Missing was indeed full of action, mystery and a little romance. Though I 'm happy with the outcome of the romantic aspect of the story, I felt Nikki's constant "pining" and self-reserved a little too out of character, but it also makes it feel authentic. I mean, who haven't secretly love someone and question if there's more to it? I enjoyed this book's case and all the questions that goes with it. I also liked the fact that Nikki's sister's case wasn't as prominent as it was in Vendetta, which I assume will be the closing case for the final book of the series.

What I do find lacking was a stronger faith message. However, the overall message of moving on and letting go does resonate with me. With that said, the highlight of the story really is the suspense aspect, which is what Missing is, a romantic suspense, and it hits its mark. Several plot twists were surprising, and definitely provided the entertaining factor. In all, a compelling story that can easily be read as a standalone, but would make for one great story when read as a series. Think of it like a TV mystery series, because Missing is as visual as it is suspenseful.

Title: Missing (The Nikki Boyd Files #2)
Author: Lisa Harris
Pages: 320
Year: 2016
Publisher: Revell
My rating is 5 stars.
Simply put, awesome! In book two of the series, Nikki’s interested in more than just being friends with Tyler. The only problem is she doesn’t know how Tyler feels about her and she is scared to lose his friendship. Plus, in this sequel, there is another case that soon grows out of proportion to what at first became a missing person’s case.
This story seemed to have more action, adventure, danger, etc. Plus, while Nikki’s sister is still missing, Nikki has to decide whether she wants to remain in the force or go back to teaching kindergartners. Tyler is ready to move forward in his life, but he isn’t sure in any area how without it affecting his son Liam. Tyler wants to have a job that fits his personality and uses his military experience, but he doesn’t want to be in school or behind a desk.
The questions being asked by Nikki and Tyler about many aspect of life, work and faith do reach some conclusion. However, the book is left on a cliffhanger that makes me long to read the next installment coming out in 2017 titled Pursued. I found the novel had me chasing a few rabbit trails in figuring out who the main antagonist was, but that also kept me turning pages!
The only almost “unreal” aspect was how Nikki seemed to keep being saved “in the nick of time” by either Tyler or someone else. While Nikki being saved right before she might perish makes for a lighter story, it just seemed to cast a somewhat unenjoyable aspect to the book. I am sure people know agents do lose their life in the line of duty and some do get saved. Those moments when Nikki got rescued were rushed moments in the storyline, but I really enjoyed book two more than the first book. However, book one established the main characters along with their different backgrounds so it would be helpful to read Vendetta before Missing.
