I recently got the chance to read the ebook of “Remembering Lauren” by Misha Jordan. I got the chance from this book to be able to revisit a place I have not been in a very long time. I am originally from Florida. In Florida, there were a lot of cold case murders that went unsolved.
I loved this book, because I was able to relate with Nikki, who is the main character. She moved from a busy city, because of bad events that had happened in her own life. She went to a small town, where she learns that creature comforts are not available, like public transportation and easy to find rentals. I found many of these same challenges when I moved from Florida to North Carolina.
One issue I did find with the book was that the first couple of chapters were a little bit drawn out. It is slow in the beginning, but it is because you are finding out more about both Lauren and what is the story behind why Nikki moved to Chiefland and why she is so interested in Lauren’s case.
In Florida, there are many junior detective groups that love to try to find ways to solve old cold cases. This story does include one of those groups. It shows that sometimes it takes more than just the local police department to get to the bottom of the case.
Once you make it through the first couple of chapters, the story does pickup and it does get very interesting with a few plot twists. So be sure to be paying attention or you may miss something in this spine tingling suspense.
