Back Cover Blurb:

Amelia Moore, the founder of the Moore Detective Agency, specializes in missing persons. Her cases have taken her to some very interesting places and put her in some dangerous situations, but she always solves the case. With the help of her partner, Rick Bonito, the business is flourishing.

Julie Anderson feels a need to find the man she fell deeply in love with during her youth. When Julie went off to college to become a lawyer, she lost contact with her high school sweetheart. She now wants to know what became of Joey and why he stopped writing to her? This is an assignment that intrigues Amelia. The thought of finding a long-lost love seems quite romantic.

My Review:

From picturesque scenery to astoundingly vivid sequences, Clarke has it all with this one.  The plot was just fast paced enough to keep me hooked without feeling like we were rushing to the conclusion.  Clarke made me think as I was trying to puzzle out the mystery that Amelia and Rick found themselves unraveling.  Her eloquent writing made me feel as if I were adventuring alongside the characters.

Speaking of the characters, I feel as if I know them individually, as if they're true friends.  Throughout the series Clarke has continued to develop her main characters in such a manner that you can't help but know and love them.  At the same time, they never cease to surprise me.
I love Amelia and Rick in all of their comical and intricate ways.  They're so sweet together that I simply can't get enough of them.  At the same time, the mysteries that they solve go above and beyond, keeping me completely hooked on their adventures.  I definitely can't wait to see where the Amelia Moore Detective Agency ends up next!
