Publisher's Summary

For Haley Richardson, fear does have a smell. So do hate and happiness.

A head injury as a child gave Haley an extraordinary sense of smell. Her gift allows Haley and her German shepherd, Jax, to be one of the most successful search and rescue teams in the Midwest. Her gift is also a curse as she detects people’s feelings. For her sanity, she’s reclusive until each time she’s called on to find the lost. 

When girls begin disappearing with tragic results in her hometown, Haley teams with the county’s new sheriff, Dane Campbell, to find the killer. 

Haley is drawn to the outgoing sheriff, whose daughter is emotionally damaged. After a lifetime of feeling like an outsider, though, Haley is reluctant to get involved with the child, whose melancholy threatens to overwhelm Haley. 

As the murders test Haley’s gift and skills, she learns that sometimes a search and rescue can be about the heart, and the heart can lead the way home.

Loved the storyline

This was my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it! Loved the storyline! I like that the main heroine of our story has a special gift that can help her in her job. I kind of wished we had more use for it in the book other than the emotions part. I kind of didn’t feel the chemistry between the main characters and that was a slight disappointment. I feel like parts of the book could have been better told but overall I was happy with it. I also feel like some of the storyline didn’t get wrapped up in my opinion. I feel like the evil uncle would have done more in this book (also what happened to him?) and I also really wanted to understand or get some kind of explanation for Danika’s speech impediment. This is only my opinion of parts of the book but I really did enjoy it. I’ll check out another book!
