Hijack in Abstract by Larissa Reinhart (Spotlight and Review)
Sherry Tucker, our protagonist, is pulled into a mystery when the Sheriff (who also happens to be her uncle) calls her in to make a profile sketch. But soon, the witness is killed and well, she starts poking her nose in.
To me, this book isn't so much a mystery as a really exhilarating ride as Sherry gets pulled into one situation after another. Her "solving" the mystery had more to do with coincidence than actual deduction (at least to me). But, when there's so much drama to be had, I'm not complaining.
Now, Sherry's life has so much drama that if I even start to describe them, this review will never end. But the one thing that caught my attention would be the love triangle. There's Sherry, and there's Todd (ex-husband, but she got the marriage annulled) and there's Luke (ex-boyfriend, cop) and I don't even know if Max (shady rich foreigner that she's trying to get arrested - but he helps her out) is in the picture. Personally, I'm rooting for Todd, seems he seems really sweet and supportive. But then again, I haven't read the earlier books in the series (I really have to fix that).
I'm actually amazed that this book isn't longer. It packs a lot of punch with all the drama going on. If you're in need of entertainment, you should check out this book.
