    One thought on “Kidnapped at Christmas”

    1. 4 Stars ~ It's been ages since I've read a Love Inspired Suspense and a first for me by Maggie Black. It is often a rare book that can keep the high intensity of the first pages, written to snare the reader, right through to the end. Ms. Black is excellent in her craft and this reader couldn't put this book down until the very satisfying end. The characters, Samantha and Joshua, come to life; both are smart and brave, and complement each other in tense situations. They instinctively have each ot [...]

    2. Note: two characters in this story had their romance told in Headline: Murder, which is not technically part of this series.Having a suspense set in Canada is unusual for me and interesting. Samantha's weapons knowledge as an investigative reporter was a new angle for me; usually weapons knowledge seems to be given to military people alone, in these types of books. It did make me more edgy that they had to use vehicles and hand-to-hand combat for weapons, while their enemies had guns, because of [...]

    3. Gripping from the very first sentence: ''A fierce, biting cold that seemed to dig right into her skin was the first thing journalist Samantha Colt felt as her groggy brain swam back into consciousness.'' Brrrrris story chilled me to the bone between it's frosty outdoor scenes and sinister suspense. Definitely a read worthy of hot chocolate and comfort cookies. I love Samantha's analytical mind. She's all about processing facts and finding patterns in random events. She's quite brilliant at what [...]

    4. I love to read Maggie's books. She is one of my favorite authors. This is the beginning of a new series, True North Bodyguards. I really liked this book; its well written, action packed, and full of adventure. You will really truly enjoy her characters and the situations they find themselves in.Samantha Colt is a fact finder for Torchlight Newspaper. She was so into her research that she has invented her own facts finding program she named ATHENA Aggregated Torchlight Hub for Enforcement and New [...]

    5. High-powered, almost non-stop action makes this narrative quite a thrill ride. Otherwise, this book pretty much follows the typical pattern for this genre. Some of the scenarios are over-the-top and slightly unbelievable but the plot twists do keep the reader guessing.

    6. This was a fast read with lots of twists and turns. I enjoyed getting to know the characters. I thought I knew who it was about halfway through and it turns out I did! Always glad to figure out a who dun it.

    7. 3.5 — There was a lot of suspense right from the start. The story didn’t have much about Christmas and could easily have been set during another time of the year.

    8. Full of actionIf you like action and suspense you will enjoy this book. Page one the heroine finds herself in a van how did she get there who are these men. The hero hears a noise in front of his friends house, who is it. When he go downstairs to check there is a woman tied up in Christmas ribbons laying on top of a bomb. Wow. Wonderful story, the hero has some doubts about what he should do with his life, is it to please his grandfather and father or himself. Should he reenlist when his six mon [...]

    9. "Multidimensional characters and palpable tension combine in Black’s latest. Clever plotting and various twists make this an engaging read. While the relationship develops a bit quickly, it seems to fit with the life or death situations the characters face" (4 stars @ RT Book Reviews).Miniseries: True North Bodyguards

    10. So SoThe story line didn't thrill me with this one. Some of the characters seemed shallow and unbelievably. The book helped pass some time, but I can't say I would read it again.
