Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The first snow storm of the season made driving treacherous. Red lights on emergency vehicles suddenly flashed up ahead. Flares lit up the highway. Teddy braked harder when the state trooper standing on the center line came into view. The trooper waved his arm and pointed toward the opposite lane from the accident. Teddy breathed more freely and moved on.

Evading detection was easy this time. Sliding into a ditch and needing to be rescued like that other driver would be a downright injustice after making it this far.

Taken held my attention from the first page to the last. The back story was interesting, and the present story was suspenseful. There were many twists and turns, pointing to different people as the kidnapper of Mary's infant. Though the book was not long, the main characters were developed enough to make you like or dislike them. Taken was fairly well-formatted with only a few typos or missing words. I was disappointed in the ending; I would have liked a epilogue to know what happened to several people, especially the kidnapper. This appears to be this author's first novel and, as such, I would rate it "good." If she writes more, I will read her next book.

What I enjoyed about this book is the authors ability to really keep me guessing on who the kidnapper was. She would point you in one direction, then another, then another, then back to the original person and so on.

Suspects: Mother, Father, Mothers Best Friend, Fathers Wife, Fathers Mother, Little Old Lady Neighbor, Reporter, the list goes on and on.

This is a book you will have trouble putting down!

I too got this from the free list. I read the first 55% in about 30 mins. It drones on and on about the baby. Feeding the baby, rocking the baby, taking the baby to the park. Then the baby is snatched. More droning about her agony over not being able to feed the baby, or rock the baby, or take the baby to the park. At this point the meter is in the 70% range. What about her brother taken all those years ago? He's been mentioned in two or three sentences in this time. So a lot of ground is going to have to be covered in the remaining 30%.
It was at this point I asked the all important question, "Who Cares?" The answer was "Not I." And I pushed the "Push To Flush" button.
To close,in a constructive vein, if anyone one within the sound of my voice has the power to edit this work, here's three. No charge.
Location 2507: "The aching hadn't eased none either."
Location 3022: "And no doctor mumble-jumble, please."
Location 3142 "And they left you look at them?"

Picked this up when it was on the free list based on aggregate score (was a 4 at the time). Made it 15% through before I had to delete it. Poor writing, 2D characterization, stilted dialogue. What I read came across more as an info dump--and a poorly organized one--than as a story. I normally complete everything I start reading but couldn't see this one through to the end.

It is a pleasant crime story. It starts out fairly well, with many subplots put in place that promise to be revealed along the way. It sort of slows down and takes a while to build up the actual crime, which was very low key and underrated. I think I would have made that a little more painful or dramatic. Although the concept is good the dialogues and subplots seem to be a little predictable and very TV movie like. So it resonates like a Mills and Boone with a crime element. It is nothing to complicated and I am sure will suffice for a quick read.

Taken started out a little slow, but quickly accelerated. Every parent's worst nightmare - baby disappears in the night. Was a stranger responsible? Or was it the baby's father/ex-boyfriend, current boyfriend, best friend, or elderly neighbor? Each had a "reason" for the baby to disappear, but who would have followed through? Who can you trust?

I really enjoyed this book! My heart went out to Mary as she looked into the crib of Jena and realized that her baby was not there. Well developed story and was so "hard to put down". Will await the next novel by Debra Lee!

This book was the worst book I have ever read. It didn't appear to be edited and I thought it was written by a child of 14 or 15 years of age because it has all the mistakes of an early writer. I am surprised that this writer is able to make money writing for a living and Amazon should not be taking our money for drivel like this. However, you get what you pay for and this book was written for the cheap market and I will not be caught by Amazon or this writer. again.
