Author: Evonne Wareham
Genre: Romantic suspense
Date Read: 14/12/2017 – 15/12/2017
Best-selling fantasy author Andrew Vitruvius reluctantly agrees to a publicity stunt in the lead-up to Christmas: being “kidnapped” on live TV to raise “ransom” money for charity. But the event goes wrong and Drew finds himself chained to the wall in barn with dwindling supplies and little hope of anyone finding him. Meanwhile, Lori France and her niece are staying in a barn in the woods while Lori’s house is redecorated, when they hear a voice calling for help…
I was really intrigued in the first half of this book, both by the mystery of who had kidnapped Drew and why, and the growing attraction between him and Lori. Once Drew got back to the city, though, the mystery solved itself fairly quickly and the plot became more about Drew and Lori trying to track each other down again. There was another bit of action and excitement around the 80% mark, but it resolved itself rather quickly.
Still, in the latter part I was rooting for Lori and Drew to find each other again and get together, and there was a satisfying conclusion at the end of it.
