Book Description

During a vacation in the Caribbean, fifteen-year old Kate Huntley’s father, a prominent U.S. scientist, is murdered before her eyes. For the next ten years Kate grows up alone in Haiti, one of the most dangerous and poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. Not a day goes by that she doesn’t think of her father. Kate pushes herself to become stronger, mentally and physically. Every day is a struggle for survival. And yet she lives for only one reason…revenge.

While looking for a drug lord via satellite in Port-au-Prince, Haiti’s capital, Jack Coffey, rookie FBI agent, spots Kate Huntley. Jack is sent by the agency to find Ms. Huntley and bring her back to the States. They have many unanswered questions about her father’s death. A professional and responsible man, Jack is confused by Kate’s lack of cooperation. He wants to help her return to the States where he believes she’ll be safe, but she treats him like the enemy and refuses to go. Everything about her is a contradiction. She looks fragile and innocent, but every time he turns around she’s putting another thug in his place. In the beginning Jack wonders if Kate’s distrust of his superiors is warranted or just simple paranoia. In the end, Jack realizes nothing is as it seems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enticing, Exciting Read July 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Finding Kate Huntley by Theresa Ragan was an enticing read. It wraps romance, mystery and multiple murders in with the case of a woman who went missing ten years earlier. It was captivating for so many reasons. The sexual tension between the hero and heroine in the novel sizzles, it practically has you panting along with the heroine who just wants the hero to get on with it already!

The heroine is no laid back, come save me weakling. She kicks ass, literally. If you go after her you'd better be prepared for one hell of a fight because she's tough, determined and not about to go down easily. She has been on her own for years in the tough neighborhoods of Haiti and she more than knows how to take care of herself. She was helpless once, but she's determined to never be helpless again. That is until she gets around our hero who has her feeling all feminine and vulnerable, but in all the right ways.

Jack is as sweet as the boy next door and as hunky as they come. He's an FBI agent who's been framed for murder and is fighting back. He's gone from being an idealistic believer in the system to being a victim of the worst betrayal possible. Someone on the inside has set him to take the fall and Jack doesn't know who to trust or where to turn for help.

The story is complex, intriguing and fraught with tension of every sort. The plot is well-developed and is guaranteed to keep you turning the pages until long past bedtime. I enjoyed every moment I spent in the world Theresa Ragan created and found Finding Kate Huntley to be one extremely satisfying read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Who can you trust? July 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
In September of 1998 Kate Huntley celebrates her 15th birthday aboard her father's boat along with her father, a doctor who is doing ground breaking aids research. Two days after her birthday Kate is awoken to a storm, going on deck she finds her father locked in battle with a strange man. Her father gets shot but manages to throw the man overboard, but the boat is beyond help. Her father manages to get them both off the boat and Kate onto a raft but is unable to save himself. With his last breath he tells her to trust no one. Ten years later we find a tougher, leaner, meaner, self-sufficient Kate working for a charter company in Port-au-Prince Haiti. Kate took her father at his word and has lived under the radar. After coming back from a couple day charter and checking into the office she finds that a "Mel Gibson" good looking man has been asking for her. This puts Kate on alert and she decides she must leave. She catches the man following her and discovers he is FBI and not what she would have expected. Jack Coffey works in the cyber unit, tracking child abductors, he isn't a field agent. He is surprised when after he discovers in the background of a routine satellite picture the image of missing Kate, his boss sends him to Haiti to bring her home. Thus Kate and Jack's lives collide and they find themselves on the run with neither knowing who they can trust, even each other.

What a wild ride this book was. Kate has made herself into a tough as nails, take no prisoners woman, she trusts no one and tends to hit first and ask questions later. I liked her personality; I liked the way she didn't just lay down and cry but came up punching every time she got knocked down. She has a certain amount of vulnerability to her but she hides it well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stay hidden November 29, 2012
By JMK
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book was only ok, not good, and certainly nowhere near 5 stars. This story, if written properly, could have been told in half as many pages. Everything is drawn out to the point that you're flipping pages to skip over the "drama" (trust me, it's not that dramatic). Also, if written properly, it wouldn't have been a bad story.

The romance is a B- Good chemistry between characters...always a good thing.
The action is a D+ There's always **** hitting the fan. And it so drawn out that it loses the suspense it was written for.
The sub-characters C+ A.J. seemed like a good guy (HATED what happened to him). The good/bad guys played their parts well. But, for the record, Lou was pretty easy to figure out. No shocker there.
The ending F- It absolutely sucked.

To sum, this book is full of fluff. No surprises, no WOW!

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't even finish it... October 3, 2011
By Amanda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was left feeling nothing for the characters. The story seemed rushed, with no time to develop any feelings for the characters. After reading about 70% according to my Kindle, I finally decided I really didn't care what happened in the end. I moved on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Found a Winner!! Bourne Identity With A Twist! September 23, 2011
By CJofNY
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Boy did I love this one!! I've loved T.R. Ragan ever since I read Abducted and Taming Mad Max, and Finding Kate Huntley did not disappoint!! Kate Huntley's father is about to have a breakthrough in the world of medicine when he finds the cure for AIDS. But while vacationing to Haiti on a boat with his 15 year old daughter he is murdered and Kate is left alone in life to survive the rough streets of Haiti and find the man responsible for killing her father!!! 10 years later FBI agent Jack Coffey is sent to Haiti to retrieve Kate and help the FBI solve a 10 year case and find her father's killer, or so he thought!! In this story Ragan tells it through every main cgaracter's perspective, which I LOVE!!! You as a reader gets an insight into what each character is thinking and it draws you into the story as you form strong opinions while trying to figure out who all is involved in this conspiracy/suspence/romantic thriller that no one in their right mind should pass up, especially for the price!!!! The attraction between Jack and Kate is HOT and their romance scenes are tasteful yet steamy!!!

Good story, interesting characters, although unrealistic. Too much focus on the sexual attraction. Hated the rushed ending. I would still recommend for a quick, entertaining read.

I like crime/mystery books. I have read all of the lizzy Gardner series books and decided to try something else by the author. Finding Kate Hundley was an easy read and good story.
