Trapped by Irene Hannon was a book I simply could not put down. I so connected with the characters in this one that I worried about them when I had to stop reading. I actually told by spouse, "The girl in this book is being held hostage and when I have to stop reading I feel bad because I'm forcing her to be held captive longer." He laughed at me, of course, but that's how real this story was to me.
The book started fast and kept up that pace the entire way through. It almost became too much for me and I wanted to put it down to calm myself down, but I forced myself to read on. So very good, this one.
The only thing I didn't like was when one character said "ohmygodohmygodohmygod" I didn't appreciate that in an otherwise clean book.
From the back cover:
When Laura Griffith's sixteen-year-old sister disappears on a frigid February day, leaving only a note behind, Laura resolves to do whatever it takes to track down the runaway teen. That includes recruiting AFT agent turned private investigator James Devlin to help. Dev knows time is of the essence with runaways--just forty-eight hours can mean the difference between recovery and ruin.
But the deeper he and Laura dig, the more Dev begins to suspect that something sinister is at work in the girl's disappearance. And in the icy winter weather, the trail is going cold...
In her latest thrilling read, queen of romantic suspense Irene Hannon outdoes herself with a fast-paced tale of fear, deception, and just the right dose of romance.
