Week 29 Reviews: Shadow Play, Hide Away, Night and Day

From Goodreads:
An explosive new Eve Duncan thriller from the New York Times #1 bestselling author

Eve Duncan is the most sought-after artist in the field of forensic sculpting. Dedicated to her work ever since her daughter Bonnie was taken and killed at the age of seven, Eve feels a sense of duty to those whose lives were lost and whose bones are now in her hands. When a sheriff in California contacts her with a request for help on the reconstruction of the skull of a nine-year-old girl whose body has been buried for eight years, his intensity and investment in the case puzzle her. But when the ghost of the girl begins communicating with her, Eve finds herself wrapped up in the case more intensely than she could have ever imagined. Not since Bonnie has Eve had such an experience, and suddenly she finds herself determined to solve the murder and help the little girl find peace. Except that the killer is still out there, and he knows Eve is on the case. And he won't rest until anything and anyone that could reveal his identity is eliminated...

From Goodreads:
Iris Johansen's beloved forensic sculptor Eve Duncan is back and now the stakes are higher than ever. Dramatic changes are on the horizon for Eve and Joe Quinn and their relationship may never be the same. Faced with the task of protecting Cara Delaney, a young girl with ruthless enemies who want to see her dead, Eve takes her away to the remote Scottish Highlands where they join Jane MacGuire in search of a hidden treasure. But nowhere is far enough away to protect Cara from danger. With enemies closing in from all sides, Hide Away is a high-octane thriller that fans will not want to miss.

From Goodreads:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes the explosive third book in the latest Eve Duncan trilogy.

Iris Johansen's third book in her latest explosive trilogy starring forensic sculptor Eve Duncan takes readers on a high-energy adventure with Eve fighting to overcome the odds. Protecting Cara Delaney from the enemies who want her dead leads Eve to be their target. It will take everything she has to rescue Cara, and doing so will put that which is dearest to her at risk. Night and Day is the pulse-pounding race to a conclusion that will have readers on the edge of their seats. 

My Review:
This trilogy was just fantastic! The past two have dealt with two mysteries in Eve's past-Bonnie's father, and Eve's trilogy. This one is different. It's about a skull that goes missing, and the family and situation there. Which was pretty explosive!

There was a lot going on in these books. The main thing was Cara, who she was, what had happened to her. There was also Eve's pregnancy. I dived into Hide Away to see when they'd tell Cara about it. Since yeah, it was pretty important, and she might take it that they didn't want her anymore, even if that wasn't true, and I enjoyed everything there!

Each book, they faced a different side of the threat. Because of who Cara's family was, that was the cause of this happening. And there were different levels, and things that came together, and involved things were thrown in the mix, which wasn't easy!

One book led to the other. And there were some pretty big cliffhanger endings that were pretty evil! But since I had all three books, I just went from one to another, which just made it really great, and the ending all the more enjoyable and sweet!

Loved reading these books, they were so great, and they involved some pretty big changes in the series, and I can't wait to read more of this series, because there has to be more!
