The Shadow Tracer
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Sarah Keller is a skip tracer, tracking criminals who have gone on the lam. She’s also a single mother to five-year-old Zoe, living quietly in small-town Oklahoma—until an accident sends Zoe to the ER, and their life changes in a heartbeat. Medical tests reveal a desperate secret Sarah has been hiding for years: Zoe is not her daughter, but rather a girl once rescued from a nightmare of murder, vengeance, and harrowing family ties she can’t possibly remember. Sarah does. And someone wants to make sure she never forgets.
Now Sarah must abandon her carefully constructed life and take Zoe on the run. Using her knowledge as a skip tracer to stay off the grid, she must remain one step ahead of her pursuers if she is to stay alive, save Zoe, and bury the past once and for all.

I just finished "Shadow Tracer" and enjoyed it. Good characters, strong women, some surprises, lots of suspense, and well developed plot and characters. This is the second book in a row of Meg Gardner's books I've read in quick succession and both stopped with a cliffhanger and an unfinished story. I suppose it is to facilitate a sequel, but I think it literary dishonesty. But that's just me. Her earlier books were not like that and I enjoyed them very much.
