Taken

This book by: Dee Henderson is another one of her Romantic Suspense novels. Shannon Bliss escapes the crime family who abducted her 11 years ago. She tracks down Matthew Dane, a former cop who experienced the roller coaster of his daughter being abducted and found. Matthew makes contact with a circle of safe people who can help Shannon reintegrate into a normal life and who can help bring the crime family to justice. Shannon’s buried memories are brought to the surface as Matthew reads her diaries from the past 11 years. Secrets are brought to light and danger is around the corner. Matthew and Shannon grow to be close friends in a short amount of time. Shannon is a strong capable woman who wants to build a photography career and get married in the future. Matthew starts to open his heart to the captivating woman who needs his support and encouragement.

Dee Henderson is one of my favorite authors! In this book, there are familiar characters who have appeared in previous books: Ann & Paul from Full Disclosure and Charlotte & Bryce from Unspoken. All three of these books are stand alone and can be read as such, but it is nice to see familiar characters and already know their some of their backgrounds. The suspense of this book comes from not knowing Shannon’s full story until she reveals information or until Matthew discovers the pieces to the puzzle. While the story time line is over a short amount of time, this book is not as fast paced as some of the author’s other books. The hint romance comes from the growing friendship and deep conversations between Matthew and Shannon. The author does a wonderful job of incorporating the character’s faith in God. The conversations about God or religion in general is thought-provoking and realistic. I would recommend this book (and any of Dee Henderson’s books) to anyone who loves suspense and romance combined into a thrilling story.
