No one knows more about the impact of the past than the Nez Perce people of Lapwai. Gwen finds herself an unwelcome visitor to some, making her investigation even more difficult. The questions keep piling up, but answers are slow in coming—and the clock is ticking for a missing little girl. Meanwhile, her ex-husband back home is threatening to take sole custody of their daughter.

The Portrait of Vengeance by Carrie Stuart Parks is another brilliant mystery in this exciting series. Gwen Marcey is the main protagonist who is dealing with a lot. She lost her parents at a young age. Now, as an adult she will come close to the killer. The one who killed her parents is trying to kill her and the six missing kids she found. Gwen forces herself into this new investigation. She left the crime scene where her mother was murdered.

The Portrait of Vengeance is a thrilling rush. Adventure, action, and mystery. Themes of death, loss, and hope are found here. I was hooked. The forensic artist, Gwen Marcey, has her own demons to face as well as the struggle to survive an ordeal. She must conquer the new challenges. Strong, determined, and smart.

Review:

Yukon Audit by Ken Baird is an excellent story to read. Here, there is action, adventure, and romance all rolled into one entertaining tale. Brody is a car mechanic…and soon he is plunged into an adventure of a lifetime. Little does he know that one woman’s job request will send him straight into danger. Plus, the woman happens to be very attractive. There is only so much that a man can through…will Brody survive the journey all in one piece?

Ken Baird lured readers in by the wilderness of the Yukon and the danger it presents. There is a beauty to behold about the place. I have never been but once, I have read this book, I felt like I was there. The characters were enticing. The woman is confident and bold.  Brody is courageous and a little less confident than the attractive beauty beside him.Yukon Audit was told in a way that was played realistically. I could actually see all of these scenes coming alive. They could actually happen. Crime is everywhere. Ken Baird writes it in a way that brought out excitement. Suspense and intrigue were heavily upon every page. I didn’t know what to expect. Truly a page turning thriller that will hold all to its plot. Fast-paced and masterfully written. Overall, I highly recommend this novel to readers worldwide.
