Looking for a suspense/thriller? Nearly Gone is a book I read a while back and really enjoyed. It includes a serial killer, a paranormal aspect, and some great characters. As per usual with me and series books, I have’t yet gotten to the second book but it is on my list of those to get to this year as I am motivated to finish up some of the series books on my shelves. Check this one out if you haven’t – I found the story engaging and of course, there’s some romance too!

He revved the engine and I held tight with both hands as the bike lurched forward, We zoomed down streets, leaning into the curves, wind whipping over me. I pressed into his back until all I could smell was the leather tang of his jacket, and all I could taste was the sweet thrill of flying away.
Keeping secrets is second nature to Nearly Boswell. Living in a trailer park outside Washington, DC, with a mom who works as an exotic dancer, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Only her best friends know about her obsession with the personal ads, and Nearly hasn't told anyone about the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone's skin.
Then a serial killer goes on a murder spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper. Nearly might be the one person who can put all the clues together, and if she doesn't figure it out soon - she'll be next.
Big, dark, scary, and brilliantly plotted, Nearly Gone will leave you guessing until the very end.
