As Hannah digs deeper, she unravels dark secrets from the family’s past. With the realization that the kidnapping is about more than just a ransom, Hannah needs to close in on the truth, before Abigail’s time runs out.-Goodreads

Review: Another enjoyable read in the Glenmore Park series. In this installment, Hannah is on a bad blind date when she receives a call from a family friend. Hannah learns the woman's 12 year old daughter is missing. Glenmore Park and the FBI are on the case, as they race against time to save a little girl.

The 12-year old in this book meets a "boy" online and leaves her house to meet him one night. This "boy" is actually a kidnapper with sinister motives. As a parent of a 10 year old, this scares me because I know this happens in real life. I thought it was very creative how the kidnapper posted messages via the girls own Instagram feed requesting ransom money. One of the kidnappers was rather obvious (only because no other characters were provided as possible suspects) and Omer could have left out the romance with the detectives, but this was an enjoyable mystery. 

Grade: 3/5
