Short & Sweet Review: Mind Game by Iris Johansen

Title: Mind Game
Author: Iris Johansen
Series: Eve Duncan, #22

With Iris Johansen’s trademark adventure, intrigue, and explosive energy, Mind Game is a propulsive thriller that’s impossible to put down.

Scotland holds a treasure that Jane MacGuire has been hunting for years. But as she scours the Highlands in search of it, she’s plagued by dreams of a girl in danger—dreams she can’t ignore no matter how hard she tries. Who is this girl, and what is she trying to tell Jane? And will Jane figure it out before it’s too late—for her and the mysterious young woman?

Things are further complicated when Seth Caleb comes back into Jane’s life. Their history is volatile to say the least. This time Jane finds herself pulled unexpectedly into his world as she fights to save him. But Caleb isn’t the only person sweeping her up into startling developments. When Eve Duncan surprises Jane with news of her own, Jane comes face to face with stunning changes in the lives of those she loves most.

***Short & Sweet Reviews are short, quick reviews. These will mainly be used for series books where I have already done full reviews on some of the earlier books or for books that I feel will suffice with a quick review. These will not be used for review requests or blog tours.

My thoughts: It's been a while since I picked up an Iris Johansen book, but it is a series that I do love and so I decided it was one I was going to make a priority to get caught up on..and I'm so glad I did. I really enjoyed this one, especially since it had so many familiar faces in it!

One of the things I love about this series is that no matter how long it's been since the last book, you quickly get right back into the fray with the characters. Once I started flipping the pages, I remembered everything I loved about them - it all came right back to me what was going on with them, like it had only been yesterday that I read the last book, not a few years ago! 

This book is primarily Jane's story and I'm not mad about that at all. I love her character and this one really explores her relationship with Seth Caleb.It was interesting to see them working together as they don't necessarily always get along. The use of unconventional tactics was used, which was quite interesting. And we got to meet Seth's sister, which is how Jane got wrapped up in working with Seth in the first place! We also get to the bottom of the whole mystery surround Cira's lost treasure, a story line that has been ongoing for quite a while. 

I am looking forward to continuing on with this series...especially since there were some major developments concerning Eve and Joe! And I loved that we got to see all my favorite characters gathered together in one spot...I do love these characters and can't wait to see what the next book holds for them!
