This is the 2nd book of the Search and Seek series. Amanda Mackey was nice enough to send all of the Quirky Blind Date readers the second book of the series which was AWESOME, because I couldn’t put book 1 down. So a big thank you to this author for being so amazing to our Blind Date readers this month 🙂

Book Description

Fresh out of a stint in prison, Jagger Reed wants his life back…

Finally released from prison after serving only eighteen months of a twenty-year sentence, Jagger is excited to reunite with his disabled brother Dallas. With the help of Rosalind McAllister, the creative writing teacher at the prison, Jagger was given a full pardon and legal guardianship of his brother.

The fight to get his old life back has just begun…

When Jagger and Rose arrive to pick up Dallas from his temporary foster parent, Lena Radcliffe, they are horrified to discover she has moved out with no known address. Worried that his brother may be in danger, they enlist the help of the local police who discover Lena in Great Falls, Montana. Rose vows to help Jagger reunite with his brother.

Jagger is out for blood, and heaven help anyone who stands in his way…

Live or die, Jagger will find his brother so they can start fresh. But there’s more to Lena Radcliffe than meets the eye, and suddenly Jagger and Rose are in over their heads. They’re in the middle of something much bigger and more dangerous than a family dispute.

My Review

I love the characters in this series, especially Jagger. I love the connection he has with his brother Dallas and how he will go to the ends of the earth in order to find him and bring him home. Rose was great too, she had such a big heart and wanted to help Jagger even though when she first meets him he was a convicted felon. She knew there was something good within him and pushed to find out the truth so that Jagger could have his life back.

This whole story was about finding Dallas when they find out his foster mother ran away with him after Jagger gets full custody of him once he is released from prison. Why did she do it? Who else is she working with? What do they want with Dallas?

This was a great continuation to the story, but left some questions to be answered….. which is mainly about Dallas’ mom. I’m hoping we get another book so we can get a little more insight into that. The only other issue I had was with the pacing. In some parts it moved slowly and others a little too quickly. Other than that I loved this book and am looking forward to reading more from this author!

This is another one of those authors that I would have never found if not for the Quirky Blind Date with a Book, and I’m very glad I got to read her books this month 🙂

My Rating: 4 stars!
