Lisa Harris’s Dangerous Passage begins with Avery North leaving her tween daughter at school to enjoy a spa day. She’s glad to be free of her mother’s nagging questions and the overwhelming plans for her father’s retirement party. She’s content to relax and daydream about Jackson Bryant, the heartthrob who shared two dates with her.
All in all a pretty normal day for a thirtysomething professional.
Until the phone call that summons her back to real life as a behavioral specialist chasing a serial killer.
From there, the story follows Avery as she tracks a missing girl and rounds up a gang of human traffickers. We meet her charming family and learn of the special case that haunts her. And, come to find out, heartthrob Jackson is a medical examiner who helps Avery with the case and woos her into a relationship.
I really enjoyed getting to know Avery and watching her work. I think you will, too!
