It shows good character development on the main characters; the secondaries a little less so, and a few loose ends were wrapped up and resolved real fast. I suppose I'm a blood thirsty sort but I like to see a father who allowed his daughter to be abused, or a political father who was too busy making political hay out of his daughter's situation to be there for her rescue to have a few uncomfortable moments explaining/justifying it. There were a very few typos and editing issues, but the book is much better than most new offerings.
This was a very enjoyable book and I look forward to reading more from this author.
The only reason I'm giving this a 3-star rating is the author has a habit of switching point of view between characters at almost every other paragraph.
Jessica Hughes longs to take a much needed break from her hectic life as an attorney. She and her best friend, Amber, are leaving for Mexico. The current trial Jessica is working on isn't going her way nor is the relationship with her not so endearing boyfriend, Phillip Harmon. She wants to make her father, a Texas Senator, happy and has joined Phillip's law practice and Jessica knows her father has his eye on Phillip as a future son-in-law.
While tanning on the white sand beaches, Amber and Jessica meet Zach, Dave and Jack. The women joined them for a drink and encouraged the men to go on a tour of Chichen Itza. When they board the bus, Jessica can't decide who to sit with. Dave looks like Phillip and she didn't want to be reminded of him. Amber has captured Zach's attention so Jessica sits down next to Jack, a move that may save her life.
At the ruins, part of the tour group chooses to walk to the sacred well. Facing the tour guide, Jessica notices his face distort and she turns to see two gunmen approaching the group. A young girl screams and a rifle butt hits her head. Everyone is forced down on the ground and the gunmen methodically decide who they will kidnap. Jack, Jessica, two college girls, Megan and Ashley, and an over-talkative man named Gilbert are forced into a white van.
Deep in the jungles of Mexico the group is forced into a dark, unwelcoming room to wait out their fate. Only three of them will escape to fight the forceful jungle elements, disease, and drug runners to grasp any hope of freedom. Both Jessica and Jack harbor secrets from their past and during their capture they learn to trust each other as well discover a new found confidence in themselves.
Kim McMahill presents a story of well written suspense. The book is hard to put down and keeps you turning pages and fighting from slipping off the edge of your seat. Being a suspense writer myself, I once told an interviewer I wanted to write the kind of books I want to read - this is one of them. Well done Kim.
