Title: When All The Girls Have Gone
Author: Jayne Ann Krentz
Genre: Romantic Suspense
After a failed engagement, Charlotte Sawyer decided to relocate to Seattle in the hopes of a quieter life and to be closer to her step-sister, Jocelyn. While Jocelyn is away on a retreat, disconnecting from technology, a package arrives that Charlotte intercepts. This leads her to the apartment of one of Jocelyn’s best friends and business partners, who unfortunately has turned up dead. While trying to reach Jocelyn to give her the news, Charlotte discovers she has vanished and must enlist the help of Max Cutler to solve the mystery. Max Cutler, a former criminal profiler turned private investigator, and Charlotte uncover something bigger than either expected and must take action so that they don’t end up the next victims.
In what seems to be a recurring theme for me with Krentz’s books, I did not want to put this story down. Between likable characters, witty words and just the right amount of thriller you are left with a fast paced plot, perfect for a quick read. As for the romance between Charlotte and Max, while obvious and natural, it does not overtake the story creating the perfect combination of romantic suspense. This is quite honestly one of the best books I have read in a long time.
