Book Review: Sins of the Past

Publisher's Description

Three Novellas from Bestselling AuthorsIn Dee Henderson's "Missing," a Wyoming sheriff is called to Chicago when his elderly mother goes missing. Paired with a savvy Chicago cop, the two realize her disappearance is no accident, and a race against the clock begins.

Dani Pettrey returns to Alaska with "Shadowed," introducing readers to the parents of her beloved McKenna clan. Adventure, romance, and danger collide when a young fisherman nets the body of an open-water swimming competitor who may actually be a possible Russian defector.

Lynette Eason's "Blackout" delivers the story of a woman once implicated in a robbery gone wrong. The loot has never been found--but her memory of that night has always been unreliable. Can she remember enough to find her way to safety when the true culprit comes after her?
I am going to review this trio individually.  Sound good?  Here we go.
Missing was my least favorite out of the three.  It was more slow going and felt repetitive.  The kidnapper wasn't obvious, which was good.  There really isn't much to say about this one.  The couple didn't kiss at all, which is good.  Though it was obvious they liked each other, which is fine and dandy with me.  Overall, like I said above, not my personal favorite.
Shadowed was...ok.  It had more of a fast pace which was better than the first one.  But the couple only knew each other for a day before they I did not like that at all.  This one was set in 1979 which was nice.  The other two were in modern day.  It had some nice twists in it, one at the end I did not expect. 
Blackout.  This one was my favorite.  It was scary, thrilling, and overall a great mystery.  I like that the girl didn't remember really anything and then it comes back here, and there.  You get to go along with her for the ride.  The couple knew each other for two years, which was nice.  I got a little scared myself since I was reading it at night.  :) 
Overall these were clean books.  They take you on a little adventure that has some twists and turns along the way.  I normally don't read books like this, but I am glad I tried it out.
3 out of 5
