This book deals centers around the recovering victim of a kidnapping. She was kidnapped and held by individuals who were thieves, kidnappers for hire, and, ultimately, murderers. Although the events that take place in this book are not for young readers, there are no gruesome or graphic details, making it enjoyable for young adult readers and above.*
Several of the characters are involved in relationships (married or dating). One couple kisses, and discusses dating in the future, but nothing else occurs.*
Matthew Dane steps off the elevator of his hotel and finds an unexpected guest in the hallway. Shannon Bliss has reappeared after her kidnapping many years ago. She has escaped and is ready to begin helping take down the criminal dynasty who have held her for many years. But this must be done carefully, exactly, and on her terms. One hidden diary at a time.
This book took a turn from the shorter, more romantic books that Ms. Henderson has previously written. Taken begins a turn into a deeper, longer, complex plot-line that unravels a crime dynasty with many layers. Longtime readers of Ms. Henderson’s other series will recognize several characters who appear in other books. However this book is not crucially tied to a series, and can be read as a stand-alone.
Female, who enjoys Christian suspense. Male readers might also enjoy the intricacy of the plot-line, but it was written with a female audience in mind.
*Reader discretion is always advised.
