Review from a Man's Perspective
Carly is back and still getting the feel for her new christian body that she put on in the last book. Her relationship with Nick is improving, but there is still some friction between them. Carly is out patroling with her partner when they get a call to head to the hospital. They find out that her partner's wife and 4-month old baby have been taken to the hospital and his wife is unconscious. While they are tending to his wife, his son is taken upstairs for precaution. Overnight, the unthinkable happens. His son is kidnapped right out of the hospital. Thus begins a never ending search to find her partner's son, all the while tending to her relationship with Nick. Along the way, Carly stumbles upon an FBI surveillance on a person of interest in the baby kidnapping case. Nick begins pushing her away and reporter Alex is beginning to lend a supportive ear to her friendship. Her roommate is suspended for her role in the kidnapping, and now she's moving out on Carly. Do they find the baby? Will Andrea really move out? What's going on with Nick? What is Alex's angle in this? How in the world does ICE get involved? Where is the God that she has so recently been placing all of her faith in? WHEW! If that's not enough to get you interested in this series, you have some serious problems!
Ms. Cantore does a great job with her character of Carly. For Carly to be such a young Christian, she sure puts her faith in action. I love that Carly has such intimate discussions with God as she attempts to make sense of the things that are happening around her. I also enjoyed seeing how she molded the relationship between Carly and Nick throughout this book. Their relationship was definitely on a roller coaster as he struggled to deal with his injury and what it means for his future. The police procedures are so realistic, I appreciate it when an author does all of the extra research that gives me a little bit of knowledge and learning, all while I'm enjoying a book. The dilemmas that the characters get themselves into are all settled in believable ways. For example, the simple fact that she had the character of Joe shown as struggling between being out there looking for his son and being at the hospital to care for his wife was very believable. She gave him the solution of staying with his wife and trusting that his friends on the force would find his son. That's a great character trait that should be followed!
Is this a "guy's book"? There's no question about it. This book has police chases, arson, car wrecks, FBI, human trafficking, etc. If you would ever want adventure and intrigue, this book and series is definitely for you!

This book picks up four months after Accused (book one) in this
This book picks up four months after Accused (book one) in this series leaves off. Carly is out of juvenile duty, back on patrol with her old partner, and reconciling with her ex-husband Nick. After her partner's baby is taken from the hospital, Carly is thrust into a new investigation, trying to find out what happened and find the baby before it is too late.Was this review helpful?

I didn't like this book as well as the first one. The parts I liked the best were where the author referred back to characters and events from the first book, which moved more quickly than this one and held my interest. I think the characters had more depth in the first book, and the plot was more interesting.
I wanted to like this book as much as the first one, but I just didn't. If you are a big fan of police drama, you might enjoy this book. Also, if you absolutely fell in love with Carly from the first book and want to find out what happens next in her life, you might enjoy this book. It just didn't do anything for me.

Was an ok read, had the bad guy into a few too many criminal act
Was an ok read, had the bad guy into a few too many criminal activities and was confusing on many instances, with him as well as the main good gal character.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Writing was about average I suppose. Not one I would have purchased though, so glad I had gotten this one on a freebie day. While had a christian slant, wasn't in-depthly so, though may have been a bit much for non-christians.

Pretty good but had quite a bit of religious reference throughout. Wound up skimming a lot due to the intensity being based more on religious beliefs than the plot. Oh well, read it anyway but REAL glad it was free.**
