Grace has lived in the Smoky Mountains her whole life where her father was a forest ranger who has taken her out daily teaching her tracking and wilderness survival. When Grace’s father went missing a few months ago she refused to give up hope that he wouldn’t be out there and alive surviving against all the odds.
Fighting the law enforcement who have chalked Grace’s father’s disappearance up to an accidental drowning on very little evidence Grace finds herself still searching the woods daily. When Grace runs into some trouble in the woods and is rescued by a handsome stranger she can’t help but find herself liking him but doesn’t want to lose focus on her father and her search either.
Untraceable is the first book in the Nature of Grace series which is a fast paced young adult read with a mix of mystery/thriller along with a bit of romance. The book moved at a fairly good pace all throughout and was a rather quick read for me.
I did have the feeling that the book seemed a tad predictable with what was going on in the story at any given time through the middle. But I will say this one was more than a little surprising with how everything turned out in the end and with a bit of a lead in to the next book in the series it was quite engaging.
Overall, a fast paced young adult mystery/thriller with a bit of romance in the mix. As much as I thought I saw the ending coming it had a nice surprise waiting, would definitely be interested in book 2.
