I was recently sent a copy of “Abducted” by Dana Mentink in exchange for my honest opinion about the book.
I have recently discovered the Love Inspired Series. It was through a giveaway that I was entering that I found them. I am hooked. They are a Christian branch of Harlequin (I know, not something you thought would be possible.) They have three categories. Love Inspired (mostly clean romance), Love Inspired Suspense (Suspenseful romances of Danger and Faith) and Love Inspired Historical (Historical Romances of Adventure and Faith).
The book “Abducted” is part of the Pacific Coast Private Eyes Series. This book is the 3rd in the series. I have not read the other books and I had no problem following along.
Here is the synopsis from the back of the book:
When the high school sweetheart she never expected to see again bursts through the door of her medical mission clinic, nurse Sarah Gallagher can't hold back her shock. But Dominic Jett isn't there to catch up. He's trying to save a life, and the thugs on his tail will stop at nothing to catch him. Now abducted and imprisoned on a remote island, Sarah and Jett become pawns in a tug-of-war between a powerful drug lord and a devious madman. And their only chance for survival is working together to find the valuable painting the dangerous men are searching for. But with someone trying to kill them at every turn, can they locate it in time to keep their reunion from turning fatal?
I could not put this book down. It had me instantly hooked as soon as I started reading. The character descriptions had me feeling like I was friends with them. This book is jam packed full of action, suspense and romance. It was an easy read, even though I had not read the previous books in the series. It was fast paced, suspenseful and I found myself sad when the book concluded.
Sarah, one of the main characters is open about her faith and shares how she relies on God. I really enjoyed seeing this character stay positive and trusting toward God in moments of turmoil.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a clean, suspenseful edge of your seat mystery.
5 Star Rating!!!
