Watch Where They Hide

Watch Where They Hide by Tamron Hall
3/12/24; 256 pages
William Morrow
Jordan Manning #2

Watch Where They Hide by Tamron Hall follows Chicago TV crime reporter Jordan Manning as she investigates the disappearance of an Indiana mother of two. It is recommended mystery.

Shelly Biltmore calls Channel 8 News to talk to reporter Jordan Manning because her sister Marla, has been missing for several weeks and she suspects foul play. Marla, who is in the middle of a divorce, dropped her two children off at daycare and then disappeared. Shelly doesn't think the police are taking her concerns seriously and does not believe her sister would leave her children willingly.  She thinks Marla's husband is responsible. Jordan travels to Indiana and begins to look into the case.

Jordan Manning is an interesting, fully realized, likeable character and it was a pleasure to see her following clues and uncover hidden secrets to solve the mystery of what happened to Marla. The missing person case here has Jordan mainly following up on information her sources uncover or reveal. It would have been nice to see some more ground breaking discovery of information, a more intricate, interesting plot, and some heart-stopping suspense along the way.

Even though this is the second in a series, it was easily read as a stand-alone novel. I like the character of Jordan Manning and see potential in future installments of the series. Thanks to William Morrow for providing me with an advance reader's copy via Edelweiss. My review is voluntary and expresses my honest opinion.
