In the second Rogue Vows novella, the town of Solitude, Oregon, will learn that good TV makes for terrible reality.
When Chase Ryan, a popular crime TV star, turns up dead, the entire town of Solitude is shaken—but the show isn’t over yet. The confessed murderer is violently abducted on the way to the county jail, and now Detective Seth Harding must find both the killer and the kidnapper.
Seth’s investigation unearths unsavory secrets from the celebrity’s life that incriminate a cast of suspects: Chase’s family, his sleazy agent, and a fanatical stalker with a troubled thirteen-year-old daughter. When that same teen disappears from her temporary foster home, Seth’s wife, social worker Carly Taylor, is drawn into the search.
Dodging paparazzi and peril, Seth and Carly track the girl. But as they get closer to uncovering the truth, the abductor sets the stage for a chilling finale…
This book is the second in the Rogues Vows series and the two books reads as one whole book albeit with different characters and POV’s halfway. No, I really felt like this books plot was all over the place and some parts of the plot seemed really ludicrous. This again goes back to the whole length issue, had the book been slightly longer then more explanation can be given which would not make some aspects of the plot ludicrous. A bit of backstory for some of the characters would help if you get what I mean. Again, I couldn’t connect with the characters because I felt like the plot was all over the place and also because the pace seemed really fast and the reader can’t digest it all at once. Didn’t enjoy this book as much as I did the first. Maybe novellas are just not my type.
