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.
I have had this book for years and years and finally decided to read it. I was pleasantly surprised by this book! I’m usually not a fan of mysteries but this one was wild! It does have a slow start to it, but once you get into the thick of it it’s pretty stellar! The characters were a bit hard to keep track of at first but once you got into it it was enjoyable. Definitely not what I was expecting. I was not expecting to laugh as much as I did or gasp. I almost missed a work shift to finish the book!
I'm sleep deprived from being up all night to finish this book. The tongue in cheek sarcastic humor had me immediately. The fast paced twisting mystery kept me intrigued. Please tell me a sequel is coming.
I enjoyed reading this book. From start to finish never a dull moment.
