Here And Gone by Haylen Beck

Here and Gone is a gripping, wonderfully tense suspense thriller about a mother's desperate fight to recover her stolen children from corrupt authorities.. It begins with a woman fleeing through Arizona with her kids in tow, trying to escape an abusive marriage. When she's pulled over by an unsettling local sheriff, things soon go awry and she is taken into custody. Only when she gets to the station, her kids are gone. And then the cops start saying they never saw any kids with her, that if they're gone than she must have done something with them... Meanwhile, halfway across the country a man hears the frenzied news reports about the missing kids, which are eerily similar to events in his own past. As the clock ticks down on the search for the lost children, he too is drawn into the desperate fight for their return. @goodread

I really wanted to love this book because it sounds so good! I thought it was okay and the only reason for that was too many things were pretty obvious to me. And that's saying something because I'm not all that bright!

In the beginning, Audra is on the run with her kids, Sean and Louise. Audra has had enough from her husband and she's getting them out of there.

She is going down old country roads trying to keep off the main roads but then ends up in it when she runs into Sheriff Whiteside. He pulls her over and says some junk about the car and then wants to look in the trunk and some other stuff happens.

Suddenly, Audra is going to jail and this Deputy Collins is taking the kids to a safe place.

Audra doesn't understand anything that is going on and is afraid for her kids.

Then there is that moment in the police station. . .

"Please," she said, unable to keep the quiver from her voice. "I've done everything you said. I've been cooperative. Please tell me where my children are."

Whiteside held her gaze.

"What children?" he asked

Well, you can imagine right there how the rest of the story goes and how scary and traumatic it is for everyone involved.

Overall, it is a decent enough story and one that will make you wonder who you could ever trust.
