Review: Missing in Mexico by Stuart Gustafson

Goodreads: Private Investigator Stan W. is hired to find a college freshman who's missing after a family vacation in Los Cabo, Mexico. Even with local help and some promising leads, he's unable to find her and returns home to inform the hurting parents. Months later he receives a mysterious letter and jumps on the next plane to Los Cabo. Will this be the break that he needs to find her? Or will she remain missing - Missing in Mexico?

Kritters Thoughts:  A plot line that was to die for and made you think about all the missing persons cases that have taken place abroad lately in the news.  A story centering around a young girl who goes missing after a family vacation in Mexico.  Was she kidnapped?  Did she go missing willingly?  You want to find out what happened to this girl and help get the clues as to where she  has gone.

With a PI named Stan, the reader goes on a journey trying to find the missing pieces to help him and her parents discover where she has gone and maybe even why.  Throughout his investigation, you are treated to chapters here and there that take a glimpse back to Sarah's childhood - in these chapters you learn a lot about how she grew up and the person she is before she goes missing.  To be honest - one of these chapters definitely helped spoil the ending, which one - I will not tell! 

The main reason my review is a like and not a love is the wordiness that occurred in a few spots that didn't keep the story moving.  At times, I thought the author was trying to boast about their knowledge of the area. 

I would recommend this read to those who enjoy a little search and find with clues coming from all sorts of places.

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more

Pages: 245

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from the author in conjunction with Partners in Crime tours.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
