Grace’s dad has been missing for so long, everyone assumes he’s dead – everyone except Grace. He disappeared into the vast forest filled with cliffs and bears and other dangers. But Grace feels inside that he’s alive. He was a Forest Ranger and he taught her everything she knows. And she knows a lot. She sets out to find him, looking for even the smallest clue, like a tossed Cheetos bag. Her mother hardly notices Grace because she’s so distraught and has to continue to work to provide for them. As the days pass and the authorities dismiss her, she ventures farther into the wilderness and deeper into her obsession.
Untraceable is fast paced with action, suspense, even a bit of romance. Another thing I liked is learning more about survival in the wilderness. Each chapter is headed with a Survival Skill, and as Grace searches for her dad, we go along with her and learn from her actions.
The ending will surprise you. It ties everything together while leaving a few things unanswered. This is the first book in the Grace series, after all.
Barnes and Noble
I give Untraceable a rating of Hel-of-a-Story.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~FTC Disclaimer: The author did not send me this book nor did she request a review. I bought it because I read about it on another blog. Which just goes to show that posting on other blogs or having other bloggers post about your book helps with getting the word out. But I bet most of you already know that. Just a few years ago, the blogosphere was new and writers hadn’t considered it as a way to promote themselves. Ah, how times have changed. For me the biggest change has been my behind. Now I sit at my desk most of the day typing on a too-small keyboard and staring at a lit screen. (I do occasionally stare at an unlit screen, but that’s before my coffee kicks in.)
