Overview

Toni Matthews is back—and the stakes have never been higher.

After her honeymoon, Toni returns to her detective agency with a new partner, her former police officer husband, Abe. But a new case soon puts them in harm's way again.

A seemingly routine missing person's case quickly draws them unknowingly into the dangerous underworld of drugs, violence, and murder. Even as Toni and Abe become involved in prison ministry through their church; Abe's Jewish aunt, Sophie, continues to struggle with the question of who Jesus really is; and Toni's younger sister, Melissa, wrestles with teenage romance involving an unbeliever, the deadly web is closing around the newly married detective couple. The circumstances surrounding the interwoven relationships soon build to a dramatic climax with Toni's—and ultimately Abe's—life hanging in the balance.

In the end someone will have to pay the ultimate ransom to save their lives.

If you read before going to bed, Book 3 of the Matthew & Matthews Detective Series will have you turning pages into the wee hours of the morning. In The Ransom, Kathi Mills-Macias has created an exciting story of romance, intrigue, and faith that is a fitting culmination to her three-book series. I highly recommend not only The Ransom, but its sister books, Obsession and The Price. Maryann Diorio

The Ransom is another satisfying installment about the Matthews and Matthews detective agency--which makes me hope there will be more books in the series. The way the author ties the themes of price and ransom into the storyline is especially inspiring, as this time Abe¿s Jewish Aunt Sophie finds her Redeemer. While Toni and Abe navigate their way through an involving missing person¿s case involving drugs and a prison ministry, Toni¿s former fiance finds a new love. The author ties up the loose threads of the previous two books in a way that is totally gratifying not only to readers who love mysteries, but also to the romantics among us.

I really enjoyed this book. Loved the characters and how they were developed. I cared deeply what happened to them and was glued to every page because of the suspense.

The Ransom is the first book I've read by this author and now I wish I had read the other two first. However, even though I know what will happen since I started with the third book, the characters are so deep and real and the plot so fantastic, I know if I read the other two I won't be disappointed. Without giving away the storyline I'll just say that more than once I got a warm, glowing feeling and the emotion brought tears to my eyes. I love a book that gives me not only an escape, but an opportunity to feel something special...Bonding with characters and wanting good things to happen to them. And yes, I even felt a bit sorry for the villain. Great read and one definitely worth your time. It doesn't get better than this.
