Overview

Snatched by Pamela Burford

A humorous romantic suspense novel that’s fresh, quirky, and surprising! Find out why Snatched has been described as “Janet Evanovich meets the Coen Brothers.”



Is an uncomplicated divorce and a fresh start at forty too much to ask? Apparently it is for Lucy Narby, whose life goes from blah to bizarro when competing kidnappers lock horns in her kitchen. And really, does the victor have to be that hot? If this is the Stockholm syndrome, it sure didn’t take her long to catch it!



Lucy’s kidnapper calls himself Will but looks suspiciously like former child TV star Ricky Baines, whose acting career was cut short when he himself was snatched and held for ransom 25 years ago in a notorious cold case that remains unsolved. Will’s gang includes an aging French bombshell, an outlandish Irish giant with a mysterious past and a thing for Will’s sister, and long-lost Cousin Hal—a charming fellow who neglects to mention that he happens to be the twisted sociopath who kidnapped Will when he was still America’s favorite little star. Hal spent the past quarter century in the slammer for an unrelated murder, and now he’s out and determined to locate the $2 million ransom Will’s family paid. Someone else dug up the cash while Hal was behind bars, and that sort of thing tends to make twisted sociopaths a tad grouchy.



Fortunately (or not), Lucy’s bigamous ex is on the case. But so are a gay private eye in a fat suit and a bad-tempered parrot with an ax to grind, so no worries. Everyone has a secret and no one is who he seems when Kidnap Fever strikes.

About the Author

Pamela Burford comes from a funny family. You may take that any way you want. She was raised in a household that valued laughter above all, so of course the first thing she looked for in a husband was a sense of humor. Is it any wonder their grown kids are into stand-up comedy and improv? Oh, and here's another fun family fact: Pamela's identical twin sister, Patricia Ryan, aka P.B. Ryan, is also a published novelist. Patricia is the Good Twin, and yeah, Pamela knows what that makes her. But hey, Evil Twins have more fun!

It should come as no surprise that everything Pamela writes is infused with her own quirky brand of humor, from her feel-good contemporary romance and romantic suspense novels to her popular Jane Delaney mystery series, featuring snarky "Death Diva" Jane, her canine sidekick Sexy Beast, and a fun love-triangle subplot. Pamela's own beloved poodle, Murray, wants you to know that any similarities between himself and neurotic, high-strung Sexy Beast are purely coincidental.

Pamela is the proud founder and past president of Long Island Romance Writers, Inc., a chapter of Romance Writers of America. Her books have won awards and sold millions of copies, but what excites her most is hearing from readers. Swing by and say hi at www.pamelaburford.com.

I've been a Pamela Burford fan for years, and Snatched is definitely the crown jewel of her work to date, a witty romantic suspense that's quite a bit longer than her previous books. All of her books are inflused with an undercurrent of humor that seems to just bubble out of the charactrers, but with Snatched, you find yourself laughing out loud at regular intervals. The story moves along at a cheerfully brisk clip, the mystery really keeps you guessing, and the characters... omigod, the most entertaining ensemble I can recall offhand. (My favorite is Quint, a parrot that cracks me up every time he opens his beak.) The attraction simmering between Lucy and her smoking-hot kidnapper, Will, is truly delicious--no one does sexual tension like Pamela Burford. Romantic suspense has never been such sheer, unadulterated fun. HIGHLY recommended!!!!

A nice, clean storyline. Might be helpful if you wrote down the names of all the characters early on so that you don't forget who is whom.

Don't waste your time on this one. Pages are missing and some are out of order.

The first part was hard to get through and I almost put the book down. I did continue to read and enjoyed all the characters very much. Sad to see the book was complete.

This outrageous and sometimes incoherent book resembled a three ring circus without the clown makeup, I take that back. There was a clown in makeup.

This was a strange, suspenseful, wacky & enjoyable read. I would like to see more from this author. I liked it.

This was a decent read. I like how the author gives a lot of backstory and each character has his or her moment. There are several mini-stories going along with the main story. The only negative I could give this was that it was a bit draggy. I thought it would be funnier too. It is worth the read! There was another person who left a comment to write down the names of the characters so you know who is whom. I agree.

This book hopped from one setting to another, from one storyline to another, from one decade to another. I'm not sure why I kept reading it thru to the end. I think I did it to see if it would ever make any sense to me! I can't count how many times this put me to sleep. I hope I remember this author's name so I won't make a mistake and get any more of her books!

I enjoyed reading this one. There are some funny parts that had me laughing out loud, especially the toilet seat thing towards the end ;) I wasn't able to read the entire book in one sitting, and had to keep going back to figure out who some of the characters were. The different names and disguises threw me off, and got a bit confusing. The writing style is a little different, skipping from past to present, but flows ok once you get into it a ways. Just over 1000 pages.
