Publisher's summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Lorhainne Eckhart brings you the first book in a new crossover series!

The social worker and the cop, an unlikely couple drawn together on a small, secluded Pacific Northwest island where nothing is as it seems. Protecting the innocent comes at a cost, and what seems to be a sleepy, quiet town is anything but.

Billy-Jo McCabe never expected to become a social worker, considering the broken system nearly destroyed her. Shortly after she takes a job on a remote Pacific Northwest island, she gets a call about an adolescent girl who’s gone missing from a wilderness camp, and questions arise about the marks and bruises seen on the young girl’s body before she disappeared. Roche Harbor detective Mark Friessen is called in to investigate the disappearance, but instead of working with the newly appointed social worker, he ends up butting heads and clashing with her every step of the way. Billy-Jo becomes the rival he does his best to avoid, considering the only conversations they have involve her pointing out his shortcomings and arrogance, telling him exactly where he can go. But when Billy-Jo finds herself in over her head, she’s forced to team up with the man she tells herself is her polar opposite, someone she could never be attracted to, as he has the uncanny ability to bring out the worst in her. The only thing Billy-Jo wants is to find the missing girl and see that she gets the kind of help she herself never got before being tossed in the system - before her father, Chase McCabe, saved her. 

So, swallowing her pride, she unwillingly forms a truce with Mark, and together, they come up against close-mouthed locals, island secrets that hit too close to home, and the realization that their case about finding and helping a young girl has turned into something far more sinister.

Great Read

Nothing As It Seems (Billy Jo McCabe Mystery #1) was a great read by Lorhainne Eckhart. Billy-Jo never thought she would become a social worker especially since the broken system almost destroyed her. She takes a job on a remote Pacific Northwest island and gets a call about a young girl who went missing from a wilderness camp. Mark Friessen is a Roche Harbor detective who was called to investigate the disappearance. They both end up butting heads and clashing at every turn. But they have to them up in order to find out what happened to the missing girl. I enjoyed reading this book and cant wait to read more by the author.

Unbelievable

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. A social worker and a cop, a strange couple. Perhaps together they will find the missing person. Loved the Narrator’s way of telling the story.

So Intriguing!

This would have been given a full star rating had it been longer. That's the only issue I have with the entire book. It was a really amazing read and I'm glad that I had the opportunity to read it. The longer thing is a personal preference in all honesty. I'm sure there are many readers that absolutely loved the length of the book. There are some heavier topics addressed that I felt could have been leaned on a little more as well. I still recommend it.

mystery

Billie Joe McCabe, a social worker is new to the island. She could have found a position anywhere. She has her own reasons why she chose this place.
Her first case started the day she set foot on the island. She was working on the same case as Mark, a bristley detective.
a 13 year old girl is missing from a summer camp for foster kids. Shay is classified as a runaway. Someone wanted to shut down the case.
Both Billie Joe and Mark seems to think it all doesn't add up. This story is full of mystery, intrigue. Leo Jones narration is very good.

Great Introduction to the Series!

This is the first book in the Billy Jo McCabe Mystery Series. This is a great introduction to the Series. I liked the characters, and the mystery. Billy Jo, a social worker, is smart, and strong. Mark, a detective, is handsome, and enigmatic. I loved to follow their investigation, and I am looking forward to more in the series. Leo Jones did a great job with the narration.
