Book Description:

Published: November 18, 2012

Jameson Quinn is sick of trying to find herself in the big city. After a gallery opening ends in a trip to the ER and an argument with her self-involved boyfriend, she decides to take off for the peace and quiet of a small town — Ruth Valley.

The small town has everything Brooklyn lacked: simple people, peaceful surroundings, and a feeling of safety. Jameson even finds the perfect house to rent from the town’s most eligible bachelor, Sheriff Jack. Life is finally headed in a promising direction.

But something isn’t right. A young man is mysteriously injured, then disappears — and Jameson finds he isn’t the only person to suddenly vanish. The suspicious behavior of an abrasive nun and a creepy priest set her off on an investigation of what’s really happening. Will she figure out the secrets of Ruth Valley before she’s the next to go missing?

Review –

This is a great eerie story of a small town where several people, almost all being men, have disappeared over the years and no one seems too concerned. But when Jameson Quinn, to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, moves to town she notices things aren’t as they seem to be and even at church barbecues  there is a strangeness in the air. She with the help of a priest who doesn’t much act like a priest find out the secret to the missing men and to the meat served in the barbecue.  Yup!  Creepy!!!!!   Great book.

five stars *****

Review –

I really don’t know why it took me so long to finish this book except for the fact that I had many other books that were more exciting and calling out to me.

This book marks the end of the Spotlight Series and may things happen, some bad and some good.  The stalker  seems to have re-appeared, but is it the same stalker and if so who is helping him?  It all works out in the end and Issy and James live their lives in peace and Issy decided not to be an actress but to write for the screen with James. Good series with a lot of interesting characters, but if you read the series, don’t do what I did and put too much time between this book and the others.
