I blog about about the books I read which range from children's books to suspense/thrillers. The books are recently published.

Untraceable by S. R. Johannes


Grace's father, a wildlife enforcement officer has been missing for three months. He seems to have vanished without a trace near a river. It seems as though everyone wants to write him off as dead but Grace insists he is still alive and she is determined to find him.


I loved Grace's independence and confidence to take care of herself in the forest with skills her dad taught her. Growing up in the Smoky Mountains and being able to accompany him on his rounds through his territory gave her a comfortable-ness with being out there on her own. It's not a place I would want to be.


Grace is blocked at every turn when she locates possible evidence and is discouraged from looking further, so she does what every rebellious teenager does - the exact opposite of what she is told to do. What she finds will have you sitting on the edge of your seat, reading as fast as you can so that you can find out what is going to happen.


Untraceable is a fast-paced thriller that has Grace facing threats, death and betrayal. How far does the betrayal go? Who can she trust? And what about that new guy in town that seems to want to help her and she finds herself so attracted to?


The author has done a magical combination of just enough clean romantic suspense to ease the tension in this mystery thriller. I love guys like Mo who are so gentlemanly and respectful of the women they care about. There really are guys out there like that ladies. Don't give up hope!


All wrapped up in this package is a sub-theme of wildlife conservation and poaching. There is so much here that you will be thinking about Untraceable for days after you've read it.


Found on teen and young adult best seller lists, you won't be sorry you picked up Untraceable no matter what your age. I highly recommend it. I gave it 5 stars out of 5.

Thank you to the author for providing a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
