Overview

Torn Apart by Sharon Sala

The twister that touches down in Bordelaise, Louisiana, not only destroys the calm of a summer Sunday, it pierces the soul of Katie Earle, whose young son Bobby goes missing…and it wasn't the storm that took him.

Katie's first thought is that her estranged husband, J.R., saw his chance and grabbed Bobby to spite her. But the reality goes beyond that to truly horrifying, and now her nightmare is only just beginning. The real terror will begin when the tornado's wreckage is cleared away and the kidnapper can escape with his prize.

The agony of uncertainty grows with every passing hour as Katie and J.R. reunite with a single, desperate purpose: to find their son before he slips from their grasp…forever.

Their marriage apparently died several months ago due to his employment and her need to remain in her hometown of Bordelaise, Louisiana keeping them apart. However, Katie and oil troubleshooter J.R. Earle stay connected though separated because they both love and want to be involved with their preadolescent son Bobby. While J.R. is on an offshore rig, a tornado hits the town causing several deaths and plenty of property damage. Bobby is reported as one of those who died though his body has not been found. However, Bobby's friend Holly Maxwell who suffered a broken hand, insists she saw a stranger take Bobby with him. Not willing to wait for either the law tied up with the tornado emergency or for J.R., Katie goes after her son. The second Bayou Storm Front romantic suspense (see Blown Away) is a fast-paced thriller that provides long deep looks into the townsfolk struggling with the emergency including the deaths, and the fears of father, mother and son; especially harrowing is Bobby's viewpoint as a kidnapped victim. Although the profound character perspectives mute the suspense somewhat, readers will appreciate the lioness vowing to get her cub back from the monster as she refuses to wait for the cops, the Amber Alert or her estranged husband Harriet Klausner

This is the first book of S.S.'s that i havent connected with leading female character. Katie was self-centered and selfish. Looking at other peoples ptoblems, its easy to say what you would or would not do, but i just dont see how she could have wanted to keep her son apart from his father because she didnt want to move due to his job. First and 3rd book in this series were great stories. Read them about 4times just couldnt make myself read this one a 2nd time til now.

2nd installment of the Storm Front Series - A couple separated but still in love reconnect while trying to find their kidnapped son. This story is fast paced but deals with strong hard issues of child endangerment. I like how Sala continues this story from installment 1-3.

Katie and J.R. are a married couple in Bordelaise, Louisiana. The couple has a deep love for one another and solid commitment to the marriage and to raising their son together. They are experiencing some realistic problems - he's away from home a lot for his job, and she's still grieving over her parents' deaths. Life throws in a monkey wrench, as life is wont to do, and this seemingly tiny thing puts a serious crimp in the marriage, leaving the two living apart, with neither willing to move forward on a divorce. On Dad's weekend with Bobby, a big storm hits, one that does serious damage in the Gulf of Mexico, and touches down twisters in other parts of Louisiana, including Bordelaise. As this twister rocks through Bordelaise, Katie and J.R.'s son, Bobby, goes missing. Now, we get to the meat of the book. What happens next is heartbreaking, and yet shows the lengths to which people will go for each other in times of life-threatening peril. The story of how Katie finds herself, and how J.R. returns to Bordelaise, and how together they find Bobby is gripping and heart-wrenching and life-affirming, and unstintingly straightforward. Sala tackles two incredibly difficult subjects - child abuse and mental illness, and does it without hesitation. If this book is a random sample of the caliber of Sala's writing, I cannot recommend her highly enough. I'd never read anything by Sharon Sala before, and I'm going to hit the library to find some more, as quickly as I can. I hope the rest are as good as this one.

I would advise that if you don't care for book that involve children being taken, then this is not the book for you. For the rest who can read this as a work of fiction you'll enjoy this well written book. From the first page you can't stop reading it. The way that Sala puts you in both Bobby thoughts (the little boy) and Newts (the kidnapper) is down right scary. You spend the whole book praying he'll be fine. I also thought what the parents had to face is heart wrenching and at times--being a parent--hard to read. This is the second book in the Storm Front series and starts up right from the last. Even with the touchy story plot this is one of the best written romances I've read in a long time. Please read these books in order to really understand the continual story that goes from book to book.

Torn Apart is the second novel in the Bayou Storm Front romantic suspense series (Blown Away is the first). While graphic in detail, the author spins a tale of a town and it's residents who're torn apart and put together again by a tornado. A husband and wife were separated until one tornado changed things. Their little boy disappears. Did the tornado blow him away, or was it something even more sinister responsible for his disappearance. You won't want to put this novel down until you find out what happens to that poor, sweet child and his parents. It's another fast-paced read, a thriller that throws ugly truths in your face like a tornado rips through a town. When you finish reading this one, blinders will be torn away with the storm.
