Untraceable by Laura Griffin

Published in 2009. 374 pages.

For most of the decade from 1990 to 1999, I primarily read mystery and suspense novels. My three children were born during that decade, and most of my reading was a form of escapism. As my children have grown, my reading habits have changed - for a lot of reasons, I think - but I still enjoy a good mystery.

Untraceable is a current Salt Lake County Reader's Choice nominee, and I thought it looked like a good pick for vacation reading this past summer. I read it over just a couple of days as I relaxed. The mystery was a good one - with a major plot twist that I never saw coming - and some steamy romance was thrown in for good measure.

The novel won a 2010 Daphne Du Maurier Award for Excellence in Romantic Mystery/Suspense. Laura Griffin's website indicates that Untraceable is the first of The Tracers series, with Unspeakable out now and Unforgivable due to be released in November.

I haven't yet decided whether I'll continue with the series - there are just "so many books, so little time"! - but ten years ago it would have been a no-brainer!
