The Smallest Mistake
Three went in; one came out. For five years, no trace has been found of two high-school friends who went hiking in the woods near Nashville. The third teen, Amber Ryder, was discovered at the bottom of a ravine with a broken arm, head trauma--and zero memory of the horror that put her there.
Will Put You
What started as a cold case has become a fresh hell for forensic technician Georgia Morgan. Another woman's body is found in the woods, and it leads to the missing teens' remains. But while Georgia works with Amber to try and reawaken her memories, her gut tells her the worst is yet to come.
At A Killer's Mercy
Homicide Detective Jake Bishop can't be sure whether Amber is an expert manipulator or the killer's next target. Either way, he's determined to protect Georgia. Because the deeper she digs into the past, the deadlier the secrets that emerge, and a nightmare years in the making is about to come to a bloody, terrifying end…
What a wild ride Mary Burton takes us on in Vulnerable. This book is not your average romantic suspense – it plays tricks on one’s mind that not only confused our investigators in the story, but made me doubt everything I thought I knew about the murders.
Five years ago, three high school friends went hiking in the woods near Nashville for a school project – only one of them returned. Amber doesn’t remember anything that happened in the woods back then. The bodies of her two friends have never been found…until now, when another body is discovered close to where the teenagers allegedly vanished. Georgia Morgan reopens a cold case from five years ago in an attempt to catch a murderer that is still on the lose. Jake and Georgia have to team up to solve this case and hope that Amber’s memories will finally return. Interviewing the families and friends of the victims, it quickly becomes clear that things are not as straightforward as they seem when secrets are revealed and more people killed.
I’ve been a fan of Mary Burton’s for a long time and religiously read every book she releases, and while I recommend all of her books wholeheartedly and love them for different reasons, Vulnerable easily tops them all. It seems like Mary Burton tapped into a new level of suspense for Vulnerable. This book plays with readers’ minds so perfectly that I felt every goosebump and shiver along with Georgia and Jake. I was as confused and on guard as our two main characters and emotionally tied to them every step of the way. The plot is so intricate, shocking, surprising and unexpected that the story didn’t leave my mind for a single second – it completely consumed me until the end. Romantic suspense is my favorite genre and I set very high expectations for it. I want to be surprised and thrilled, kept on the edge of my seat. Vulnerable did that and more. No other book has made me second-guess myself, the plot and all the characters involved as much as the final book in the Morgans of Nashville series. Noone can be trusted and everyone is a suspect.
If I could read one book for the rest of my life, I dare say it might be this one. It certainly is my new favorite by Mary Burton!
*You do not need to read the other books in the Morgans of Nashville series. Vulnerable can be read as a stand-alone*
