Untraceable (Nature of Grace #1)
By S.R. Johannes
'Dad used to always say, nothing is untraceable.
Everything that touches this earth leaves a special imprint, a unique mark that proves we existed in some way- no matter how invisible we may feel.'
Sometimes you need to let go. Sometimes you just can't.
Grace knows the Smokies like the back of her hand - all thanks to her forest ranger father who taught her all the ins and outs of tracking, and wilderness survival since she was smaller than a river otter.
But when her father goes missing, not even the authorities can convince Grace that he isn't coming back. She scours the Smokies day after day, clinging to the flimsy pieces of evidence she finds: bark with blood-like sap, Cheetos bags, empty toilet paper rolls.
The world thinks she's crazy.
But Grace can't let go. Not when her father could be out there. Alive.
It takes a village to raise a child. It takes a town to keep a secret.
Just when she thinks the trail has gone cold, Grace stumbles across a web of deeply-buried secrets that may hold all the answers - from the mysterious going-ons in the woods, to her father's disappearance. Not knowing who she can trust, Grace throws herself into solving the mystery...even if it means putting her own life in danger.
Think with your head. Not your heart.
But secrets are not all Grace uncovers in the woods. Mo - with his "Abso-bloody-lutely"'s and adorable accent - is an enigma, spending his days surrounded by the wild, fishing and cracking jokes. He makes Grace feel things she'd rather not feel.
He makes living worthwhile. He makes her forget.
But Grace keeps her guard up, not willing to deal with feelings that she's better off without. But both Mo and her ex-boyfriend Wyn aren't willing to let her go without a fight.
If she's going to find her father, nothing can get in her way. Not even love.
What will people do for love? How far will they go to save the ones they love?
A brilliant action-packed journey of loss, love, betrayal and how to lose and find yourself on the way.
