#Review Stalked by Elizabeth Heiter @ElizabethHeiter @HarlequinBooks

Stalked cover

If you’re reading this, I’m already dead…

That’s the note seventeen-year-old Haley Cooke leaves behind when she disappears from inside her high school. FBI profiler Evelyn Baine is called in to figure out who had reason to hurt her. On the surface, the popular cheerleader has no enemies, but as Evelyn digs deeper, she discovers that everyone close to Haley has something to hide. Everyone from estranged parents, to an older boyfriend with questionable connections, to a best friend who envies Haley’s life.

Secrets can be deadly…

One of those secrets may have gotten Haley killed. If she’s still alive, Evelyn knows that the more the investigation ramps up, the more pressure they could be putting on Haley’s kidnapper to make her disappear for good. It’s also possible the teenager isn’t in danger at all, but has skillfully manipulated everyone and staged her own disappearance. Only one thing is certain: uncovering Haley’s fate could be dangerous—even deadly—to Evelyn herself.

Purchase on Amazon (US)

I received an advance review copy of this book courtesy of Netgalley and Harlequin MIRA.

“If you’re reading this, I’m already dead…”

Seven little words. That’s all it took to sell me on reading this book. I had to know who wrote it and why. Most importantly, I needed to know if they were dead. And it didn’t matter that I’d barely begun to read the blurb, and had no idea what the story was about. A blurb that starts like that simply cannot be ignored.

When I requested the ARC, I didn’t notice it was part of a series. I don’t like reading books out of order, but fortunately it wasn’t a problem. There are a few references to events that occurred in previous books, but it’s not confusing at all.

I really enjoyed the Evelyn Baine character. She reminded me of the Emily Prentiss character on Criminal Minds in many ways, which (for me) made her that much more interesting.

I was very impressed with Heiter’s ability to weave such a complex tale. There was never a dull moment, and the stakes were high throughout the story. There was a palpable sense of urgency in the search for Haley Cooke that steadily increased and kept me on the edge of my seat as one lead after another was investigated. The action-packed ending was fantastic, giving readers an extremely satisfying resolution.

    1. I need to get the first three books of the series, so I can find out more about all the things that happened with Baine, etc. prior to this book. I’m betting they will be as good as this one!
