Taylor Martin doesn’t know what happened to her father. He left one day and never returned, and Taylor has spent her life wondering why. She now profiles victims of crimes, solving mysteries for others. It soon becomes clear, however, that several recent crimes have one thing in common: Taylor. Nick Sinclair’s brother is in trouble. Scott has dealt with substance abuse for years and now stands as the central suspect in a murder investigation. Nick is convinced that Scott is innocent, but it becomes increasingly difficult to prove. As Nick and Taylor’s paths cross in their pursuit of the truth, they stumble into romance. Bradley weaves an exciting story of danger, mystery, and attraction. Readers will love the thrill of trying to solve the crimes surrounding Taylor as they root for her and Nick’s relationship to blossom. Bradley infuses the plot with questions of faith, too, as her characters learn that at the end of the day, only God knows all, and that faith is what makes life’s traumas bearable. --Carolyn Richard
"Bradley's debut has a great deal of action and a tightly plotted storyline. . . . Readers will eagerly anticipate the next installment of the series." ---RT Book Reviews --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

The suspense was pretty high at the start and the end, but there's a lull in the middle. A number of people end up dead. However, I was confused by several people demanding that Taylor stop profiling active cases because it's too dangerous. Yet the main suspect found Taylor through her teaching job (which they deem safe).
Also, Taylor feels like God won't answer her prayers but thinks about reconnecting with God based on the peace Nick has from "giving God control over his life, trusting him no matter what." This is fine except it came right after Nick basically stated that he didn't trust God in the matter of her safety. So, odd timing on that.
There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this interesting suspense novel.
Taylor has been profiling some intense cases and is dealing the with fear of a stalker. She has a suspect in mind, one of her former students. When her brother asks her to come home, she doesn't realize that she's only bringing her troubles with her.
Nick is searching for his brother. He doesn't believe Taylor's claim that he's her stalker, and he's determined to prove her wrong. He's still dealing with the death of his wife, but he's drawn to Taylor. He wants to work with her to find his brother, but Taylor isn't so sure.
I really liked this book. The one qualm I have with it involves the villain plot. I liked how the author spread the suspicion around until I saw how it turned out. Regardless, the end was suspenseful, and I liked the characters, especially Nick.
You'll meet Ben and Livy in this book. Ben is a main character in book 2, and Livy is the heroine of book 3. I plan on watching these, and I'm pretty sure they can be read out of order.
