About the book:
Jamie Richmond is still discovering her way in the romantic relationship with the mysterious Malone when her best friend Linda Davis comes home. The beautiful Linda suddenly finds herself swept up in a whirlwind romance of her own with an older man, Dr. Vincent Schulte. But not everything is all champagne and flowers for Linda. She suddenly realizes she’s become the target of a stalker. The problem escalates. Jamie is determined to protect her friend, but even she is at a loss when Linda suddenly disappears one cold, snowy day. The police are searching for clues. Despite Malone’s attempts to keep Jamie on the sidelines, she is driven to find out what happened to Linda and where she could be. Despite her best intentions, Jamie has once again put herself in danger while trying to unravel the mystery.
After reading the first Jamie Richmond mystery I’ve been looking forward to the follow up for some time. It was great to pick up where the last book left off and see just what some of these characters have been up to. I really like Jamie, she is an engaging heroine with a lot of winning personality traits and I love Malone. I’m a sucker for romance and am so glad these two are still together so often in follow up books they do something to break up before getting back together. I wish Jamie’s step-father had played a bigger part as I really liked him from the first story. The mystery was interesting and I enjoyed watching Jamie just jump right in again. I cannot wait to see what she gets up to next.
