She Does It Again! -- Trapped

Wow!  I don't know how she does it . . . but I think Irene Hannon outdoes her previous work every time she writes a new book.  Trapped had me fully engaged from the very first words on the first page.  In fact, Irene piqued my interest with her trailer (view below) before I ever got my hands on the book.

Irene Hannon is a master at her art of writing romantic suspense from a Christian perspective.  Her characters are well developed and very believable. Laura, Dev, Darcy, and the other characters in Trapped are faced with trying to resolve issues from past hurts, looking for answers to questions about God's involvement in their lives, and finding their way in personal relationships -- all while navigating life-threatening dangers

As with all Irene's stories, the plot is gripping, written so that you experience the tension as though you were right in the middle of the scenes.  Her extensive research into areas such as law enforcement procedures and medical details lends a valuable sense of credibility to the story.  The level of suspense in this book is probably the highest of any of her books so far.

If you're looking for a great suspenseful read with just the right dose of romance, give Trapped a try.  I believe you'll be glad you did.  I would also recommend the first book in this series, Vanished.  (Check out my review.)  Now we have to wait for the third Private Justice book, Deceived, due out in the summer of 2014.

Thanks to Revell/Baker Publishing Group for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Available August 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

About the Book 

A runaway teen, a desperate sister, and an intrepid PI determined to discover the truth.
When Laura Griffith's sixteen-year-old sister disappears on a frigid February day, leaving only a brief note behind, Laura resolves to do whatever it takes to track down the runaway teen. That includes recruiting ATF agent turned private investigator James Devlin to help. Dev knows time is of the essence with runaways--just forty-eight hours can mean the difference between recovery and ruin.

But the deeper he and Laura dig, the more Dev begins to suspect that something sinister is at work in the girl's disappearance. And in the icy winter weather, the trail is going cold . . .

In her latest thrilling read, queen of romantic suspense Irene Hannon outdoes herself with a fast-paced tale of fear, deception, and just the right dose of romance.
