Publisher's Summary

A Friessen family celebration turns tragic when the marriage of one daughter is preceded by the heartbreaking loss of another.

Three days before Sara Friessen’s wedding, her older sister, Chelsea, who is married to the son of a notorious criminal, disappears without a trace. The police have no leads, and her husband, Alaric Taft, has also gone missing. To find the couple, the Friessens must come face to face with the kind of deadly underworld they had never expected would touch their family.

Andy Friessen lives and breathes only one thing: protecting his family. He soon discovers the secret behind what has happened to his eldest daughter, and he’s plunged into a cat-and-mouse game, stonewalled at every turn by authorities who are supposed to be helping him. For the first time in his life, he’s forced to admit he’s in over his head. The Friessens are stronger together, so, in desperation, though he swore he never would, Andy ultimately calls for help from his cousins, Brad, Jed, and Neil.

As the cousins dig deeper into the days before the disappearance, they discover that Alaric was hiding a very dark truth, one that put a target on Chelsea’s back, and someone would have gone to great lengths to keep it from coming to light. The lines between good and bad have suddenly become blurred. All the Friessens want is a happy ending, but the more they search, the more the evidence points toward their worst fear - that their nightmare has become reality, and Chelsea could be lost to them forever.

Wedding postponed again

Sara Friessen and her fiancé Devon are finally getting married after postponing the wedding a few times. Her sister Chelsea and her husband Alaric, son of a notorious criminal, are flying in from Boston. When her father, Andy goes to the airport to pick up the couple, they are not on the plane and neither are answering their phones.

Andy, Laura, Sara and Devon fly to Boston, it does not seem that the police are not taking their disappearance seriously. Andy has always protected his family, now he is faced with not being able to do anything to find his daughter. The authorities only seem to be interested in Alaric’s father, Andy is desperate and does the one thing he swore he never would, calls his cousins Brad, Jed, and Neil, for help.

Andy thinks that the worst may have happened to Chelsea, but he does not say anything. This is story will keep you on the edge of your seat. From what Andy is treated versus Devon by the police to a body being found that fits Chelsea’s description.

I'm Impressed

This book was intense and action-packed almost from the very start. It's a very quick and easy read. I have to be honest. This is the first book I've read from this series. It seems like a stand-alone type of novel so it doesn't really hurt anything, but I can't help but wonder if I missed some important information about the series overall. Either way, I liked it and I will go back and read the rest of the series.

heartbreaking

What do you do when it's your wedding in a few days and it has been postponed before? Sara's sister, Chelsea and her husband are missing. They never arrived at the airport. So what to do? They go to Boston to find out the mystery of their disappearance, with only getting roadblocks in their way.
Lorhannie Eckhardt stories are all about family, friendships, problems, love and support for each other.
Sylvia Gonçalves narration is very good.

3 ½ stars
This is book thirty two of The Friessen’s series and the family are about to celebrate Sara Friessen’s wedding to Devon, in three days’ time. Sara’s father Andy and her brother Jeremy, have gone to the airport to pick up her sister Chelsea and her husband Ric (Alric) Taft, but they don’t come off the airplane they were supposed to have arrived on. Most of the family thought it had only been days since they spoke to Chelsea, but when they try to work out when they last spoke or texted, it could be a week or more. Ric is the son of a notorious criminal and it seems he was hiding something very dangerous and Chelsea may well be paying the price for his actions. Both Chelsea and Ric are missing and the police have no clues as to their whereabouts or if anything has happened to them. Andy would do anything to protect is family, but he is lost and unable to do anything in the deadly criminal underground he finds them mixed up in. He has to call on his cousins Brad, Jed and Neill for help, something he hoped not to have to do!
Andy doesn’t know about Ric father and the fact he has just walked out of the federal max prison. When Andy, Devon and Morgan report Chelsea’s disappearance, Sara is shocked at the Boston police officer’s reaction to Devon and Morgan because of the colour of their skin! Morgan was raised by Eddie Taft, Ric’s father, a white man, who believed in family like Andy. Eddie had raised Morgan to know how to react when a police officer pulled him over, something Andy had never had to think about with regard to his own children. It showed how deeply racism is rooted in society! The cops are only interested in where Eddie Taft is and what they know about his whereabouts. Mike and Jay were Eddie’s gatekeepers, doing whatever he wanted them to, whilst Ric wasn’t involved in his father’s business and did everything by the book. The last year, Ric started finding himself in trouble, with stop orders being put on everything, while his father was locked up. Andy’s cousins take up the reins and soon find that there was talk that Eddie may have made a deal with the Feds, and that put a target on Chelsea’s back. The more they investigate, the more it points towards their worst fear and the fact that they may have lost Chelsea.
Chelsea had met an uncle of Andy’s, on a side of his family that he had separated himself from many years ago, because of something bad. Did this side of the family have anything to do with her disappearance? Ric is mixed up in something and it has affected Chelsea in a major way. The whole Friessen family have been involved in trying to find Chelsea and Ric and now Sara and Devon have missed their wedding yet again, because of some sort of family emergency! They have already had to rearrange it so many times already and now there will be one important person, from their family, missing from what should be a happy family occasion. Lots of different emotions are raised in this story, taking you over a rollercoaster of highs and lows. Not quite what you expect at the end, but at least a wedding will still be happening for one couple. A good story which took longer to get through because of it being an audiobook, even speeded up and somewhat harder to follow huge numbers of characters, from the extended family, as just spoken names and not something I could put my eyes on and go back to. I received an ARC copy of this audiobook from BookSprout and I have freely given my own opinion of the story above.

So good!

Postponing their wedding once, Sara and Devon are excited to do it this time. But when Chelsea and Ric aren't at the airport, they know there is going to be another crisis. This one is beyond scary, and only time will give them answers. Lorhainne Eckhart's talent balances so many things in this story. We have the disappearance of Chelsea, and the connections to crime Ric's family has. Their well being is at stake and there are no answers. We have Sara and Devon, just trying to start a new life, but having to put their lives on hold again! And in the midst of it all while trying to figure out where Chelsea and Ric are, Eckhart deals with racial profiling. She has a way of melding all this together, with suspense, a little drama and a family filled with love giving us that edge of your seat feel and the warmth and compassion only family has. I enjoyed this listen and look forward to more!

Syliva Goncalves narrates this story and she pulls out all the stops. A variety of characters with great voices, she builds the suspense and keeps the story flowing. I enjoyed her performance and will be watching for more from her.

Sara and Chelsea!

After having her wedding postponed once due to a family crisis there is nothing Sara wants more than to marry Devon. Everything is going according to plan until they go to the airport to pick up her sister Chelsea and her husband only to find out that not only aren’t they on the flight, but they are missing as well.

The family is determined to find Chelsea before it is too late but when they arrive in Boston from Montana not only are there no answers to be found but law enforcement doesn’t seem willing to help due to Chelsea’s in-laws.

This story takes us on quite the ride as it brings some social issues to the forefront, balances the suspense of the story with some emotional moments and allows us to reconnect with the characters that we know and love. The performance of the narrator drew me in and I didn’t even miss the fact that it wasn’t a dual narration as that is what I usually prefer. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession
