You Can't Find Me...I'm Untraceable:)

Sixteen year old Grace is the daughter of a local wild life officer, who taught her all the survival skills she would ever need, despite her tendency to trip over branches. What her father hadn't bargained for was how badly she would need those skills once he went missing. 

Grace isn't the kind of girl to give up easily. Even when he is officially presumed dead, and everyone including the local sheriff, her mother and the town shrink, are telling her to move on with her life, something tells Grace that they're wrong. 

The only person who will help her is Wyn, her childhood friend and recent ex-boyfriend. He's not exactly at home in the woods and so his support is of the moral kind. 

Then there's Mo, the mysterious boy who rescues Grace from a dangerous encounter in the woods. He likes her and willingly helps her look for her father and track down bear poachers. But who is he, really? Can he be trusted? 

Untraceable starts off with a comfortable pace, drawing us into the life of the town and the characters within, building tension with every chapter. And don't think you will be able to stop reading at the end of one. SR is the queen of chapter cliff hangers! 

And oh, the ending! You'll have to read it to decide what you think. 

I highly recommend Untraceable giving it a strong 4.5 stars out of 5. This is a book that has stayed with me long after I finished reading it, and I'm definitely looking forward to the next book.

This sounds fantastic!  Congrats to S.R. Johannes and I hope you have a fantastic launch day!

I really enjoyed Untraceable too. Shelli really nailed the setting and there were a lot of twists I didn't see coming. So excited for her.

Very nice book review!

First off, the cover grabbed me! Then you choose to share the blurb and I'm lost in the woods waiting to see how she'll find her father! Wow! Happy Launch Day to Untraceable! How exciting! Thank you for sharing!

Sounds exciting. I'm really glad real life isn't like this, though. How many books have parents dying/disappearing under mysterious circumstances? I would be verrrrry worried if life were more like YA...

I loved the book, too.
Congrats, Shelli!!

I've posted a review (my first) of Shelli's book today. She really did an excellent job with it and her marketing campaign is top-notch! :)

A missing persons book? Well, that is right up my alley--sounds like a winner.

That does sound good! I love hearing reading book reviews! I did one today too, actually! :)

mshatch said...

wow, another awesome review. But when you say you can't wait for the next book does that mean this is the first in a series? Just curious. I'll add it to my list anyway :)
