About the book:

FBI special agent Nick Bradley has seen his share of kooks during his fifteen years with the Bureau, from the guy who insisted he’d been abducted by aliens to the woman who claimed God had told her to assist the FBI by acting as His intermediary on difficult cases.

But Rachel Sutton is an enigma. She seems normal when she shows up at the FBI office in St. Louis—until she produces a tattered Raggedy Ann doll she found and tells him it gives her bad vibes.

Nick dismisses her—only to stumble across a link between the doll and an abducted infant, setting in motion a chain of events that uncovers startling connections…and puts Rachel’s life on the line.

My Review:

I loved this book. Rachel is an elementary school teacher raised in foster care with no family, boyfriend, and little friends. She is very busy as she teaches music at two elementary schools, paints murals, teaches piano lessons, and plays piano at a nice hotel on Sundays.

One day at lunch as she picks up some sandwiches she notices a Raggedy Ann doll buried in a ice puddle beside her car. She digs it out and finds herself experiencing the strangest reaction. She does not believe in psychics or anything like that but she does not want to ignore it either so she tells her friend at work whose husband is a cop. He says she should tell the FBI so she goes and meets Nick.

He dismisses it for the most part but he likes her and she seems sane. They feel sparks between them and a connection. So they get to know each other better and then Nick discovers that the doll is a link to a missing child.

The plot and characters are interesting and unique and take a few twists. One of which I did not see coming. The romance is believable as is the faith element. Well written it is the third book in the series and I would read them in order because this book provides closure on the lives of all the main characters. Fans of Dee Henderson like me especially would like this series because it is romantic inspirational suspense. I highly recommend the entire series. :)
