Book Review - And There He Kept Her by Joshua Moehling


Two teenagers decide to break into a house on a remote lake in search of prescription drugs. It started out as a simple burglary but, instead turns into a nightmare to everyone involved. Emmett Burr has a secret he has been keeping in his basement for over two decades and he will stop at nothing to keep it hidden from others. When Emmett gets an upper hand on the burglars, the lines between victim and abuser becomes blurred.

Police officer Ben Packard returns back to the small Minnesota town of Sandy Lake for a fresh start after a personal tragedy. Packard is leading the investigation into the missing teens because he is related to one of them. Packard is struggling to find a clue to the teens' whereabouts as time is running out. Will Packard be able to find them before it's too late?

I thought this was an okay read. I found the book to be predictable and boring at times. The title of the book gave away most of the story and the bad guy was revealed very early on. I didn't really connect with any of the characters except, the few bits of humor that Gary, the dog trainer, provided. I didn't like that the author teased about Ben's past but, didn't really delve into it. I assumed that the book would be made into a series but, I wasn't really that interested in this novel to read more books by the author.
