Book review - Trapped by Irene Hannon

Publisher's Blurb: A runaway teen, a desperate sister, and an intrepid PI determined to discover the truth

When Laura Griffith's sixteen-year-old sister disappears on a frigid February day, leaving only a brief note behind, Laura resolves to do whatever it takes to track down the runaway teen. That includes recruiting ATF agent turned private investigator James Devlin to help. Dev knows time is of the essence with runaways--just forty-eight hours can mean the difference between recovery and ruin.

But the deeper he and Laura dig, the more Dev begins to suspect that something sinister is at work in the girl's disappearance. And in the icy winter weather, the trail is going cold . . .

In her latest thrilling read, queen of romantic suspense Irene Hannon outdoes herself with a fast-paced tale of fear, deception, and just the right dose of romance.

My review: When I read the summary of this book, I thought I would really like it - it read like an episode of Criminal Minds, which I love. However, I didn't find the book as good as the summary. I never connected with the characters, they seemed too flat and emotionless to me. I found the story overly predictable and at some parts, unlikely. I would not recommend this book to others.
