MISSING: an LDS Mystery Novel by Ronda Gibb Hinrichsen

From te back of the book:
A BYU-Idaho choir tour in British Columbia turns out to be anything but ordinary when soloist Stacie Cox spots a kidnapped child from Rexburg during a performance. Before Stacie can alert the authorities, the little girl disappears. Stacie vows to find and rescue her, a choice that forces her to deal with her guilt-ridden past and another little girl that haunts her dreams. When the handsome Matt Brennan helps Stacie in her search, she tries to resist the attraction she feels for him. Yet as he gains her friendship and trust, her resolve to never fall in love begins to crumble. And after a series of harrowing events, Stacie must decide if she is willing to sacrifice her life — and a possible future with Matt — to save a stranger.
I was at Deseret Book right after Christmas and saw this book on the shelf. I picked it up and put it down a couple of times. I always hesitate when buying a book by an unknown (to me) author. I finally decided to go ahead an take a chance and I was not disappointed.
This is a fast moving mystery with a lot of twists and turns. I had a hard time figuring out who were the good guys an who were the bad guys right to the last page.
The character of Grace aggravated me, because she couldn't forgive, and compromised the safety of the missing child, because of her anger. I cheered every time the parents stood up to her. And YAY for Stacie for never giving up on the little girl.
If you like mystery and suspense I would recommend cheking out this book.
It is available at Deseret Book and, or check with your library about inter library loan.
