Portrait of Vengeance Book Review


 About the Book

An unsolved case. A tempest of memories. The future’s at stake—and time is running out...

Gwen Marcey has done a good job of keeping the pain of her past boxed up. But as she investigates the case of a missing child in Lapwai, Idaho, details keep surfacing that are eerily similar to her childhood traumas. She doesn’t believe in coincidences. So what’s going on here?

No one knows more about the impact of the past than the Nez Perce people of Lapwai. Gwen finds herself an unwelcome visitor to some, making her investigation even more difficult. The questions keep piling up, but answers are slow in coming—and the clock is ticking for a missing little girl. Meanwhile, her ex-husband back home is threatening to take sole custody of their daughter.

As Gwen’s past and present collide, she’s in a desperate race for the truth. Because only truth will ensure she still has a future. (Goodreads)

 My Thoughts

This is the first Gwen Marcey novel I have read. I felt like this book could be read alone though I am sure I would have gotten a better back story if I started at book one. I liked the overall thrill of reading this murder mystery. I think there was a good plot and at times pretty creepy. I'll be honest in saying Gwen's personality was difficult for me to love. I was into her past history and the tag along story line but at times it was difficult for me to be totally into this book. So, was this the best mystery I have read? No. BUT if you are looking for a unique mystery, this could be the book for you! I do plan on reading more by this author in the future.
