Willow works with her grandfather searching for and finding unknown or lost descendants, usually to settle the estates of the recently departed. The dead looking for the living. This time the search is commissioned by someone living.
Twenty-one years ago a woman posing as a nurse walked out of her room carrying her newborn daughter. The FBI have never been able to catch a break in solving the abduction. Subsequently, many private investigators haven’t fared any better. Katelyn has faith in Willow’s grandfather and his reputation. He has the uncanny ability to find people others haven’t been able to.
Now, Willow is in a tough place. This is the only case her grandfather had going, and he is not here to carry it out. Several weeks ago he was hit and died while riding his bicycle. Willow is feeling reluctant about her ability to solve this case but her attitude changes when someone tries to kill her. First burning down her home where she should have died and then attempting to destroy her office building with her in it. With these recent developments the accident case is now also under suspicion.
It is unsettling to think someone wants to end her life and even more unsettling to find her grandfather has enlisted unexpected help with the case. A case she knows nothing about. Why is that?
Never Let Go (Uncommon Justice Book #1)
As a forensic genealogist, Willow Anderson is following in her late grandfather’s footsteps in her quest for answers about a baby abducted from the hospital more than twenty years ago. The case may be cold, but things are about to heat up when someone makes an attempt on her life to keep her from discovering the truth.
Ex-FBI agent–and Willow’s ex-flame–Austin McKade readily offers his help to protect the woman he never should have let get away. Together they’ll follow where the clues lead them, even if it means Austin must face the past he’s spent much of his life trying to forget. And even if it puts Willow’s tender heart at risk.
In this fast-paced and emotional page-turner, USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard keeps the stakes high, the romantic tension sparking, and the outcome uncertain until the very end.
I’m not so sure about the fast paced part but it definitely is emotional. I’ll admit to enjoying the read while skipping quickly through many places. More detail than is needed to advance the story.
