CBR4 #51 Down The Darkest Road by Tami Hoag

Four years after Lauren Lawton’s sixteen-year-old daughter disappeared, the world gave up the girl for dead. Lauren’s husband took his own life. Her younger daughter is looking only for what’s left of her childhood. But Lauren never surrendered. She knows who took her child, and there’s not a shred of evidence against him. Looking for a fresh start, Lauren and her younger daughter Leah move to idyllic Oak Knoll. So has Lauren’s suspect. And it feels that history is about to repeat itself.  Leah is turning sixteen, and Oak Knoll has a cunning predator on the hunt. But as sheriff’s detective Tony Mendez and his team sift through the circumstances of an increasingly disturbing case, a stunning question changes everything they thought they knew…

Tami Hoag was one of the first mystery writers I even read.  Needing a good mystery, I picked up this book at the library.  Definitely, Tami puts the reader on the edge of their seat right away, but also throws in some romance on the side as well. Small town life is portrayed well in this book.

I didn't realize when I picked up the book for the first time that it was the third in a series.  Some of the connections were lost to me but I was still able to follow the overall plot.
