Gunvor Ström, a Swedish surgeon who had to retire because her hands weren’t steady enough to perform operations, accepts a position as a private detective and enters a new and surprisingly dangerous career.
In Because You’re Mine, she accepts her second assignment. Is it always for the best to look for a missing person? Gunvor is not entirely sure as she believes there are those who don´t want to be found. Despite this, she takes on a case. A wife needs help to find her husband, Per Cedergren. A simple case at first glance. Gunvor is convinced that he has sneaked off on an adventure with a mistress and soon will return voluntarily.
Gunvor’s good friend Aidan also makes his debut as a private detective when he helps a new acquaintance look for her missing friend.
When Gunvor and Aidan take the help of their young friends, Elin and David, the two parallel cases meander closer each other. But how do they relate? And what do the disappearances have in common with the murders that at first glance appear to be hate crimes.
Soon they find themselves in the eye of the storm, not knowing where the danger lurks.
Because You’re Mine is the second book in the series of private detective Gunvor Ström.
Because You’re Mine by Luna Miller is an addictive, fast paced story about a private detective who is searching for a man who is missing.
Luna Miller’s writing is very clever. I really enjoyed the style of detective work portrayed in this story. The twists and turns were on point, and the finale had me surprised. The writing is tight. This is my first read by this author and it won’t be my last.
There is a mixture of characters, and each of them are well written and feel real. I love the individual character arcs, and how they all come together
Because You’re Mine is an excellent read!
