Portrait of Vengeance by Carrie Stuart Parks

An unsolved case. A tempest of memories. The future’s at stake—and time is running out...

Gwen Marcey has done a good job of keeping the pain of her past boxed up. But as she investigates the case of a missing child in Lapwai, Idaho, details keep surfacing that are eerily similar to her childhood traumas. She doesn’t believe in coincidences. So what’s going on here?

No one knows more about the impact of the past than the Nez Perce people of Lapwai. Gwen finds herself an unwelcome visitor to some, making her investigation even more difficult. The questions keep piling up, but answers are slow in coming—and the clock is ticking for a missing little girl. Meanwhile, her ex-husband back home is threatening to take sole custody of their daughter.

As Gwen’s past and present collide, she’s in a desperate race for the truth. Because only truth will ensure she still has a future. @goodreads 

This book is about a double murder and a missing little girl. The Nez Perce Tribal Police in Lapwai, Idaho are looking for the killer. Gwen Marcey is forensic artist who pushed to be sent out to help. She as going to go regardless because something about the murders has triggered some memories from when she was a child.

Gwen sets out to help Chief Seth Kus in finding the little girl. Gwen has to get help from her best friend Beth when her car is stolen. It seems someone doesn't want Gwen on the case. They know who she is, they know about her past. She's in danger herself. I must note that Gwen's Great Pyrenees, Winston, helped out as well. I'm always going to give credit to the animals =)

Anyway, Gwen is being shot at, attacked in all kinds of ways, trapped in places, etc and so on. BUT, this doesn't stop her and she actually finds out things from her past. She finds the murderer and another murder from years ago, more missing kids, it's like a free for all.

This is actually the first book I have read from this author. I noticed it was the 4th book in the series but it was fine as a stand alone. The book is also a quick read and a nice little mystery. 

*I would like to thank BookLookBloggers for a print copy of this book.*
