The stakes are high when a holiday turns tragic...
When Louise Gillespie regains consciousness after a traffic accident, she learns that her husband and four-year-old daughter are missing. Her frantic search to find them is encumbered by her own brain trauma and the local sergeant in charge of investigation, who thinks she's crazy.
Her luck finally changes when she bumps into PIs Ellen Brazil and Brian Lynx. Despite being on holiday themselves, they take on Louise's case. It's not long before Ellen and Brian discover the truth behind the family's sinister disappearance.
Firstly I'd like to say a huge super big THANK YOU, to Mel. Who sent me an ARC of this book. You never fail and I'm grateful for every chance I get to read one of your books.
So here we are book 3 in the Intention series, another cracking series from this amazingly talented author.
Just to help refresh my mind, as sometimes when you read so many books, you tend to forget little bits of each, so I did a re read of books one and two before this, and I have to say I enjoyed them just as much the second time around as I did the first time. You can click the images below to take you to my original reviews of each book.
Wowzerz.. what another great book from this very talented author. The list of books by Mel seems to be growing all the time, which for a reader like me is a bloody good thing.
In this book we meet Louise Gillespi, she is off on a holiday with her husband and young daughter. A family holiday by the seaside n Cornwall.
Only this getaway turns out to be no holiday for Louise. Her and her family are involved in a terrible car accident on their way there.
Waking up from the accident Louise seems to have concussion, and is told her husband and child were not in the car with her at the time of the accident. But how can that be she is sure they were all together. What's more she also discovers that she was driving and not wearing a seatbelt.
Very confused and not knowing what to do next, Louise has the very good fortune of ending up chatting to Ellen Brazil and her partner Brian Lynx, who are on holiday with Brian's daughter Cally. Louise soon starts to tell Ellen what has happened to her and can't believe her luck when it emerges that Ellen and Brian are Private investigators.
It now looks like although on holiday, they have a new case to work, they just can't help themselves.
So the big question that needs answering is Where are Louise's family?
Be warned the way this book is written once you start it, it is very difficult to put it down. You want the answers to the questions you have, and the only way to get them is to continue reading.
I am a huge MC fan and have read almost all of her books, I'm also a huge fan of The Justice series that she writes, but I have to say this series is slowly creeping up alongside it in my favourites.
Mel I can't help thinking you are making it hard for yourself to keep on topping each book you write, but somehow you keep doing it. Keep going girl. Looking forward to the next one.

A 12,000 word Justice short novella to be read between CRUEL JUSTICE and IMPEDING JUSTICE from NY Times and USA Today bestselling author M A Comley.
What would you do if you saw a stranger's life in danger?
DI Lorne Simpkins and her partner, DS Pete Childs investigate a violent attack. Lorne becomes increasingly concerned when her star witness, Donna Moran, goes missing. She knew Donna was petrified, but has Donna just gone into hiding, or has she been taken by the offenders?
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author M A Comley presents the Justice series.
Bonus: Includes the first chapter of IMPEDING JUSTICE.
Well it's no secret. The Justice series is one of my all time favourite series of books. I just love Lorne, she's ace. lol.
It was a little weird reading this one, as it's set right back in the beginning, so we see characters that are no longer featured in the later books.
I don't mean weird in an odd way, I just had to keep reminding myself of a few things that had happened (I'm not spoiling it for you)
This is a great Easy and quick read, you'll fly through it in no time.
A young lady witnesses a horrible attack on a man, and is worried and confused as to what she should do. Report it, ignore it. Her friend helps her decide what to do, but is she making the right decision.
And does she have real reason to be as scared as she is.
As I said this is only a short story but don't for one minute think that it isn't full of the usual thrills that come with any of the other Justice books.
Well worth reading.
Thanks Mel for an ARC of this book. Thrilled with it.

In this book we return to see Ellen Brazil and her working partner Brian Lynx trying to solve another Missing person/Disappearance.
Ellen is hired to find ex-banker Charles Dugan, who disappeared after his mansion burned to the ground......
Ellen is on a journey throughout the book, that not only does she need to find the missing person, i think they needs to find herself to.
We see more of Ellen's private life and the turns it takes in this book just mean that any future books are going to be just as good...
The book also show's how you can have it all, and the dangers of gambling can take it all away from you.
It is well paced, not to many characters which helped it become a very easy to follow to read. If i had had the time this book would have been done in one sitting,.
The twists in the story keep you wanting to carry on and find out what happens..
I am eagerly awaiting book 3....
