The Space Between by author Dete Meserve has an intriguing plot which is so interesting. The prologue opens the story with a beautiful marriage proposal from Ben to Sarah. I was so disappointed that her beautifully described infinity ring was lost a day later.
Now to present day, Sarah Mayfield is ecstatic and feeling on top of the world as her research with NASA has led to her discovery of a hidden asteroid traveling within earth's orbit. It has been named Earth's Trojan and is a breakthrough discovery. Sarah has no idea while she is enjoying the euphoria of speaking to a conference room full of scientists in Washington DC, that her personal world at home in Los Angeles is being rocked to the core.
After Sarah returns home she is a little worried when Ben does not come home at his usual time. He owns Aurora, a top restaurant and she decides he is staying late due to an issue at the restaurant. But when he has not come home during the night and there are no replies to all of her text messages, she becomes very worried. Ben was to testify during a court trial in a few days regarding money, his partners, and the restaurant. Maybe he is missing because of the trial.
This is the beginning of a very interesting mystery which gets more complex with each day. Ben is missing, his car is missing, there is no response to his phone and the security footage from the various cameras in and around their home has all been erased! Would Ben have an ulterior motive for leaving the family because Sarah had told him before she left for her trip that their relationship was broken? Why did he leave?
A very good story and wonderful characters.
