There are some forces you can't outrun... Forensic psychologist Claire Markwood has experienced her share of disaster. But nothing could prepare her for her sister, Darcy, going missing. Claire rushes to the butterfly sanctuary where Darcy has been working, prepared to do what she does best--work the clues. But her sister, along with her car and some of the sanctuary's rarest species of butterflies, has seemingly vanished without a trace. Amid a flurry of mysterious leads and dead ends, Claire and her criminal lawyer husband, Nick, tap every resource at their disposal. But the deeper they dig, the more unsettling the case becomes, dredging up old family secrets that shake the foundation of everything Claire thought to be true. Because some secrets aren't just threatening--they're deadly.
This is the first book I have read in this series. Yet, it can be read as a stand alone novel. I would classify this book on the lighter side of mystery. There is no blood or gore. This is perfect for those readers who like a their mystery on the lighter side.
For the little bit I got to know of Claire, she seems like a good person. She and her husband did work well together. To be honest, if it was not for Claire, probably would have stopped reading a while ago. The storyline was fine but there was not a lot going on. It moved along at a slower pace then I would have liked. Overall, this was not as strong a showing as I would have liked from this book. In addition, I have read other books from this author and know Ms. Harper can write.
