Is she missing…or a murderer?

When Laura Chaucer, daughter of a U.S. senator, vanishes from her college campus, celebrated FBI profilers Special Agent Atticus Spenser and forensic psychiatrist Dr. Caitlin Cassidy are called in. Thirteen years ago, Laura and her nanny disappeared from her family’s Denver home. Laura was found alive, but her nanny wasn’t so lucky… and the killer was never caught. Laura could identify him—if only she didn’t have a deep, dark hole in her memory.

Now she’s missing again. Did the troubled young woman run away or has the kidnapper returned? As women who look eerily similar to Laura’s nanny begin turning up dead, the Chaucer family psychiatrist renders a disturbing opinion: Laura is unstable, a danger to herself and others. Who knows what terrible secrets lurk in the shadowy recesses of her mind? Cassidy and Spenser must solve one of the most infamous cold cases ever to uncover the answer: Is Laura a killer, or is a monster still out there, waiting to claim another victim?

For me, this was the best of the series so far. Fast paced. Grips your interest from the first page and keeps you guessing. I highly recommend reading this series in order to get the full impact of this ongoing story. Very well edited.

Great book. It had a little bit of everything in it. Suspense, mystery, psychological thriller, even romance. I will definitely read more books from this author.

Carey Baldwin has created a story filled with lots of twists and doubts on the part of the reader. Just when I thought I had this whole thing figured out, Baldwin throws in another twist and casts doubt again. The side romance between Spence and Caity is fun and entertaining. Throughout the book there are enough "bad guys" to go around, but you'll never suspect the real bad guy! I only gave it four stars because, well, no one's luck can be THAT good.

I am engrossed from the opening page of Stolen by Carey Baldwin and read this edge of the seat suspense in one sitting. The hot and sexy investigative team of Cassidy and Spencer heat up the pages as they descend on Denver in search of a monster. The duo may sound a bit familiar? Are they a combination of some that we know and love? Laura is missing. It is the second time in thirteen years, and some question whether she is the victim or the perpetrator arises. The psychological terror Laura is under keeps her confused and unsure, doubting her own innocence and what is real. No one around here is helping her and she doesn’t know who she can trust. With all she has been through, Carey Baldwin has created a strong character, filled with doubt yet determined to find the truth and stop the monster. I silently urged her to reach out to Caity and Spense. Spense is with the BAU and Caity works along side him as a consultant, but I like the direction Carey Baldwin took. There are times when I question the direction Carey Baldwin took, but who’s to say what any of us would do if we walked in Laura’s shoes and it keeps the story going in the direction Carey she has chosen. After all, Laura is not a cop, a psychologist or a profiler. Very quickly, I had my first suspect. His attitude and conduct is sickening and he really p***ed me off. He makes a fantastic villain. That shopping scene is super CREEPY. Then comes suspect #2 and #3. There are plenty of twists and turns and Carey Baldwin’s use of misdirection kept me doubting my choice of the serial killer. Two thumbs up for this fast paced, nail biting suspense and the cast of characters that had me loving them and hating them…you know who you are… I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Stolen by Carey Baldwin

Laura Chaucer was kidnapped at age 8 along with her nanny. Laura was recovered safe but her nanny didn’t make it. She knows who the kidnapper is but she has holes in her memory so she can’t really identify them. Years of therapy and medication have Laura in college. She is tired of how the medication makes her feel and has taken herself off of it. Now she is starting to get a faint memory of her kidnapper. Then women that look like Laura’s nanny are discovered dead. It becomes a question of if the kidnapper is back and messing with Laura or is Laura herself disturbed and now killing. FBI agent Atticus Spenser and forensic psychiatrist Caitlin Cassidy are assigned this case. Both have their own personal flaws that seem to keep them in place, but they are a wonderful couple and work well together to solve this mystery. I loved following along with Caitlin as she studied Laura’s past and treatment. It has clearly affected how she interacts with her family, but it makes you question if it could make Laura a murderer. Laura keeps you guessing about what is going on. It seems like someone is after her yet there is enough information to make you think that something is not quite right. I have not read other books in this series. I had no problem figuring out what was happening. This is a great mystery and keeps you guessing. There were several times I thought I had it figured out and was proved wrong. I am definitely going back and getting the other books in this series to catch up on what I have missed. I received Stolen from Partners in Crime Virtual Book Tours for free. This has no influenced my opinion of this book.

Laura Chaucer, daughter of Senator Whit and Tracy Chaucer, is missing, AGAIN! Thirteen years earlier, at the age of 8, Laura and her Nanny were kidnapped and the Nanny found murdered. Laura, having been treated for mental illness since the first incident, her memory is fuzzy due to the many anti psychotic meds. And now her friend is found dead. Is she the killer? She doesn't think so but wants to find the "monster" who she believes is responsible. A tense, page turning read with an explosive ending! One I didn't see coming! STOLEN will definitely be one of my Top Ten reads of 2017!

Stolen by Carey Baldwin is the fourth book in her Cassidy & Spenser series and is the best one yet! Seriously, I've loved each one but the stories just keep getting better and better. From the first chapter I was swept up in this story. Laura Chaucer was such an enigma - vulnerable but strong. I found myself rooting for her throughout the book. Caity and Spense have grown so much both together as a couple, as partners and as individuals. This growth has made them stronger. Their romance is a tango that I enjoy watching/reading as they take their steps forward and then a spin and a stop for a beat. But the finale at the end of the book made my heart leap. I was riveted to the story as Caity and Spense always seemed to be just one small step behind as they tried to figure out the twists to this psychological thriller. If you like a complicated psychological thriller with complex characters, some charming secondary characters (the moms), and a reveal that will leave you stunned, then don't miss this one. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book from Witness Impulse via Edelweiss.
