Goodreads:  “I found her.” One phone call and three whispered words is all it takes for Paige Fischer to risk everything - including her own life.

One missing sister...
Twelve years ago, Paige Fischer's identical twin, Jessica was kidnapped. Blaming herself, Paige never gave up hoping Jess is still alive, despite everyone else in her life insisting it’s time to move on.

One devoted fiancé...
Jamie is the perfect partner, and father to their son, but when he asks Paige to set a date for their wedding, she tells him she can't, not until her sister is found. Every step forward Paige takes with her life feels like a betrayal to Jess and until Paige knows for sure what happened to her, she can't settle down.

One fateful lie...
There's been a sighting and all it takes is one phone call, one betrayal and one whispered threat for Paige to throw caution to the wind and do what nobody else could: rescue Jess. But what if Paige doesn't make it in time? Is Jess still alive? Or is someone playing a twisted game with Paige?

Whatever outcome, the only thing Paige knows is that she's willing to risk it all, even her own life, to save her sister.

Kritters Thoughts:  Paige is a twin, but when she is a young girl, her twin sister goes missing and that incident has changed her life and even set the course for her career.  She ends up working for an organization that helps families and victims of sex trafficking.  I think deep down she believes if she works in this field in her hometown there is a chance she can right the wrongs and hopefully find her sister.  

Told through multiple perspectives, this story switches from detectives who are trying to take down a sex trafficking ring to Paige and an unknown woman both in and out of the hospital.  The reader has hopes throughout the book that the families in the book can find conclusions to their situations.  

I am an avid reader of mysteries, so I may have picked out our culprit a little earlier, but it didn't ruin the reading experience for me.  I still wanted to see how the clues would all come out and confirm if I was even correct!  

I have been a Steena Holmes fan for awhile and this one fits nicely on the bookshelf with her other books.  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
