Untraceable (Nature of Grace #1) by S.R. Johannes

Grace has lived in the Smokies all her life, patrolling with her forest ranger father who taught her about wildlife, tracking, and wilderness survival. When her dad goes missing on a routine patrol, Grace refuses to believe he’s dead and fights the town authorities, tribal officials, and nature to find him. One day, while out tracking clues, Grace is rescued from danger by Mo, a hot guy with an intoxicating accent and a secret. As her feelings between him and her ex-boyfriend get muddled, Grace travels deep into the wilderness to escape and find her father. Along the way, Grace learns terrible secrets that sever relationships and lives. Soon she’s enmeshed in a web of conspiracy, deception, and murder. And it’s going to take a lot more than a compass and a motorcycle (named Lucifer) for this kick-butting heroine to save everything she loves.

Ramblings: This book sounded like just my cup of tea, and it was! Full of mystery, suspense, and romance, Untraceable pulled me in and never let me go! This is a captivating book that revved up my emotions and led me on a wild goose bear chase! 

Characters: Grace is the main character of this book and she is the strongest, bravest, and most determined heroine I've read about in a long time! But aside from the action, there is also romance in this book. Grace's ex Wyn and a new found friend Mo lead her emotions on a whirl-wind adventure in her heart!

Plot: The plot was certainly mysterious and suspenseful. Throughout the book I kept trying to figure out what happened to her dad. In the end I was waaaay off and completely dumbfounded with the outcome! Full of suspense, mystery, romance, and dealing with the struggles of losing a parent, this plot isn't missing anything!

Overall: This is one of the best books I've read since The Magi! *Slight Spoiler* At first I was super upset with the ending and I wanted to through the book across the room! But then there is a fantastic cliffhanger! *Spoiler Over* The next book in the series called Uncontrollable comes out this summer. Don't wait that long to pick up Untraceable!

Overall Rating: 5 Stars
