Former nun Giulia Falcone and Frank Driscoll of Driscoll Investigations become involved when Katie, the adopted daughter of Laurel Drury and her partner, Anya, is kidnapped, and the police discount Laurel’s theory that the crime is part of a series of kidnappings targeting the adopted children of gay couples. After Giulia and Frank meet with Frank’s former police colleague James Reilly, Laurel’s claims are taken seriously, and the kidnappings are linked to the gay resort that all three couples visited prior to their children being taken. Giulia goes undercover to investigate the resort’s employees, knowing that time is running out for Katie, as Laurel and Anya scramble to raise the ransom. The blossoming romance between Frank and the innocent Giulia—as well as the ongoing process of Giulia finding her way in the world after living years in the convent (she uses Cosmopolitan to learn about men)—provides character-based appeal for this fast-paced, satisfying mystery. --Sue OBrien
