Goodreads:  A shocking murder.

Chief of Police Jane Hardy plunges into the investigation of a tragic local murder, but everything in her personal life is unraveling.

Her son’s arrest.

Jane’s son is accused of manslaughter, and she has to decide whether or not she can trust her ex, Reid, in the attempt to prove Will’s innocence—and whether she’s going to trust Reid with her heart.   

Three missing days.

With the recent discovery of her mother’s whereabouts, Jane learns not only that her mother stole something vital all those years ago but that she drugged Jane so she wouldn’t be able to remember. What happened in those three days could change everything.

It all started with one little lie. But the truth is finally coming out.

Kritters Thoughts:  The third in a series and this is one of those that yes the mystery is self contained in this book, but there is a lot of character development from book to book and it is so much better to start at square one in this instance.

Chief Police Jane Hardy is dealing with a dead body in chapter one and the book sets of sprinting.  Along with her ex and their kid, they are navigating what kind of relationship they will have in the future and also dealing with his ex who has been giving them a hard time!  

I can't remember if I felt this way in the previous books, but there were quite a few mysteries happening in this one book and while they all get solved in one way or another in the end, there were times where I felt like it was teetering on too much.  The author did bring it together, but I was concerned.  

Only a side note, this is Christian fiction and I knew that going in, but it felt as though there were a few times where it was forced into the book and it didn't seem as natural as Colleen Coble tends to do.  

Colleen Coble is a great author and I love her stories.  It was fun looking he up after finishing this one and finding out I haven't completed her backlist - YET!

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
