A chilling photograph cracks open a decades-old mystery in this suspenseful novel by New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards.
When aspiring attorney Lisa Grant begins investigating cold cases for District Attorney Scott Buchanan to make ends meet, she discovers a photo of a missing family where she herself bears an uncanny resemblance to the missing toddler. Together Lisa and Scott unravel a terrifying web of criminal connections that could destroy the very fabric of Lisa’s life—because whoever had reasons for shattering Lisa’s past isn’t through with it. Or with her.
After Lisa Grant loses her job at a Lexington, Ky., law firm in this seductive romantic thriller from bestseller Robards (Pursuit), she heads home to Grayson Springs, a once thriving Kentucky horse farm, owned by her mother, who's dying from ALS. Lisa becomes a research assistant for former crush Scott Buchanan, the Lexington-Fayette County DA. While she initially finds Scott's grumpy personality unappealing, she begins to feel differently after looking into a cold case: the inexplicable disappearance of Michael and Angela Garcia and their two children, Tony and Marisa, in 1981. Astonishingly, Lisa discovers that both a treasured childhood doll and herself as a young girl resemble Marisa. Lisa's informal investigation leads to dangerous repercussions, including an act of arson at Grayson Springs, in which she and her mother almost perish. Scott's timely rescue tightens their budding relationship as the action builds to a startling if far-fetched conclusion.
I loved this book.....a perfect read for the summer. There was mystery, romance and a great story.
Robards combining romance and mystery keeps the reader turning the pages. Shattered is one if the best books I have read. it really kept you hooked and hard to put down. The story kept you in the dark till the end. Great read...wish there was an epilogue.
Ms. Robards never fails at writing a thriller...I have loved her work since I read the first of her books more than 30 years ago. Now I have my daughter and granddaughter reading her also.
