Book I of the popular Miranda's Rights Mystery series by bestselling author Linsey Lanier.
A woman can never make herself too tough, too strong, or too street smart.
THE SEARCHING MOTHER
Miranda Steele. Smart-talking, hot pepper-eating loner whose abusive ex-husband stole her baby and gave it up for adoption. She comes to Atlanta to hunt for her daughter.
Wade Parker. Wealthy owner of the Parker Investigative Agency and most eligible forty-four-year-old bachelor in Atlanta. He still mourns the death of his socialite wife but must now solve a disturbing murder case.
A serial killer strangling young girls in a bizarre ritual. Why?
She doesn't need a man.
He needs to find a killer.
Together, can they save a thirteen year old girl?

This book was well paced for the most part, but it lacked a realistic depiction of trauma and its effect on relationships. It may suit some readers; I, on the other hand, would have enjoyed a more thorough read in the way of details and character psychology.
Well written, Miranda’s inner demons were many but somehow she functioned correctly when needed. Parker is smooth and old southern charm but full of emotion and still mostly in control. The story is full and rounded. Will check out more of her writings soon.
Someone Else’s Daughter
Good read with some unexpected twists!
