Product Description

Product Description

It was supposed to be a fun weekend, a celebration of a marriage and growing family. Alan Lindley couldn't have been happier...until his wife Sara disappeared.

Asked by a mutual friend to help look for her, Logan Harper is sure he'd discover a wife who simply wants out of the marriage.

What he finds instead is a woman who didn't exist, a diabolical plan, and people who would do anything to keep it a secret, including taking the life of the person most important to him.

What would you do for those precious to you?

Good story.It seemed a bit too strung out. A few times it appeared that at last something would be accomplished only to have it trail to another car chase. I was almost relieved when the great ending happened.

5.0 out of 5 stars Believable...and Wonderfully Chilling! Nov. 20 2011
By ShowMeGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Brett Battles' second Logan Harper novel (after LITTLE GIRL GONE) is easily as good as any thriller on the market, and better than most because of realistic characters and a believable plot. Here are everyday people drawn into an all too possible web of evil that, once evident, ought to chill you to the bone. Once again, as in the first book, the relationship between Harper and his 80-year old father is especially good, with authentic emotion and excellent dialog. Battles's characters are not indestructible super-heroes, and the violence they encounter is a natural result of the story, making this one a highly recommended must-read.

While being a second book in The Logan Harper series "Every Precious Thing" is a stand alone read, so readers won't have to be worried about becoming lost if they haven't read the first book (Little Girl Gone).

In "Every Precious Thing" Logan Harper is asked by a friend to help find Sara Lindley the missing wife of a client. She disappeared during a weekend away with her husband Alan. Though reluctantly, Logan agrees to look into the disappearance of Sara and with the help of his father and various characters they set out to find why she disappeared leaving her husband and child behind. The more they learn the more questions develop as a chilling mystery unfolds.

Brett Battles has created a believable story line with lifelike characters whose interactions are just as enthralling as the storyline itself. At the end of the story I was still wanting more and look forward to reading more books written by Brett Battles. I'd give "Every Precious Thing" a strong 4.5 star rating and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys chilling mysteries and/or suspense novels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Every Precious Thing Nov. 21 2011
By S. Romano - Published on Amazon.com

*Rating* 3.5
*Genre* Thriller, Mystery

*Review*

Every Precious Thing is second novel in the Logan Harper series and follows Little Girl Gone. Logan Harper is a former military man who ended up on the wrong end of an investigation. Returning home after losing his job, he went back to work with 80 year old father at Dunn Right Auto and Repair. In Little Girl Gone, Harper was asked to help a man get his granddaughter back from Thailand after she was taken, and now, he is asked once again to find someone that has gone missing.

Callie Johnson is a lawyer and a friend of the family who asks Logan for help in finding Sara for Alan after she has been missing for 7 weeks. Sara Lindley disappeared after going away for a weekend getaway with her husband Alan. Sara is a mysterious woman with a past that she is trying to run away from. By leaving Alan, and her daughter behind, she hopes that those after her will somehow not find her or her husband and daughter Emily.

Every Precious Thing is a mystery and a thriller all wrapped into one. It really delves into the baby making industry where scrupulous wealthy individuals and doctors work together to produce babies for body parts. It also drives home the point that no matter how much money you are offered, you HAVE to make sure that you read the bottom line so that nothing comes back and bites you in the ass.

Logan is an interesting character who is surrounded by even more interesting older wiser men calling themselves WAMO Wise Ass Old Men. Logan's relationship with his father breaks new ground when a mysterious letter arrives along with the book The Lost Horizon. I actually liked the ending, as well as how Battles wraps up part of a mystery surrounding a long missing relative from World War II.

Battles tells the story by interacting with not only Logan, and Sara, but with the villainous doctor intent on getting Sara and Emily back at all costs. I appreciated how protective Sara's brother and sister were of her even at the risk of their own lives.

I was lucky enough to be sent a copy of this book for review and an honest review, and I believe I've kept to my bargain. I also don't believe that I've spoiled anything that happens over the course of the book with my novel.

If you enjoy Battles writing, and read the first book, then you won't have any problems with Precious Little Things.

4.0 out of 5 stars Logan Harper returns ... Dec 1 2011
By Sarah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was lucky enough to be chosen to read & post a review for Brett Battles's newest novel, Every Precious Thing, which is book #2 in his Logan Harper series.

Logan Harper is asked by a family friend, Callie Johnson, a lawyer, to help her locate Sara Lindley. Sara is the wife of a client who disappeared on a weekend getaway in Tijuana, leaving a cryptic note for her husband. With help from his dad, Harp, and some of Harp's friends, they embark on a journey to find out why this woman disappeared, leaving her husband & child behind without any explanation. Just prior to this investigation, Harp receives an old book that belonged to his brother who went MIA in WWII. Along with this book comes a letter which Harp refuses to discuss with Logan, at least for the time being. This letter, although it's content is not revealed, gives the reader some insight in the relationship between Harp & his brother. And through this Logan's relationship w/Harp grows.

I really enjoyed this book. Although it is not as fast paced as the first book, Little Girl Gone, I found I was intrigued by the plot & wanted to keep reading to find out what happened to the characters. I liked the fact that the story stayed in the United States this time. Don't get me wrong, I love the exotic places Brett takes us to in his other novels. This was just a nice change to that. I also found the characters & plot believable. This book has just the right mixture of suspense & thriller all rolled into one. I actually stayed up one night so I could finish it. =)

I look forward to book #3 (and any future books Brett writes!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Ratcheting it Up a Notch March 6 2012
By Richard B. Schwartz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Logan Harper is becoming an expert at finding lost women. Fresh from his search for a friend's lost granddaughter in Thailand (Little Girl Gone), he is now seeking a "lost" wife in Every Precious Thing.

The woman (happily married with a loving husband and sweet toddler) simply abandons her husband (mystery 1), leaving behind a note in the trunk of their car. Then we discover that the wife never legally existed (mystery 2), that some other man and woman are seeking to protect her (mystery 3) while another group is seeking to hurt her (mystery 4). But is it her that they seek or someone else within her family (mystery 5)?

I always advise my writing students to multiply mysteries, whenever possible. Every Precious Thing could serve as a perfect exemplar in this regard. The canvas is smaller in Every Precious Thing (Logan and his posse's quest takes him to Arizona, the Grand Canyon, California border country, Riverside and the Simi Valley) but the book is longer, the cast of characters larger, the architectonics of the plot a tad smoother and more refined, the bad guys very bad indeed.

While Little Girl Gone was excellent, Every Precious Thing takes everything up a step or two. I look forward to Logan Harper's next outing.

Highly recommended.
