Book Review: MIA: Missing In Atlanta
MIA: Missing in Atlanta by Debby Giusti Love Inspired Suspense #94 – Mar 08
Debby Giusti doesn’t shirk in detail when she’s describing the seamier side of life. She takes you right down into the heart of the story, the city and the hearts of the two main characters. She hooked me right in and kept the pace up while effectively balancing the action with the romance.
Returning war hero, Jude Walker is finally back on US soil and he only has one thing on his mind – to reconnect with a girl he met and fell in love with six months ago on his last US leave. The only problem was she’d sent him a Dear John email and won’t answer his calls.
Sarah Montgomery knows the dark side of the city. As the temporary director of a shelter, she’s seen people affected by drugs, prostitution and other crimes. She’s tried to guard her heart from it all but when Jude Walker comes knocking on the shelter’s door, her heart stirs. If it weren’t for the fact that he was looking for his lost girlfriend, she might think twice about her vow to stay away from relationships.
But as Sarah works side-by-side with Jude doing whatever they’re needed to do, she begins to re-assess her life. She had her future all planned out, but is it really what God had planned for her?
And while Jude continues the search for his missing girlfriend, he begins to wonder what he’ll do if he finds out that he’s been pursuing the wrong woman after all.
