My Thoughts
Abducted in Alaska by Darlene L. Turner is part of the Love Inspired Suspense line. This book will grab your attention on page one and keep it through out the entire book. This is the first book that I have read by this author - and it will not be my last. In this book we see Canadian Border Patrol agent Hannah Morgan. She is able to save a boy from his captors - however she finds herself right in the middle of a child smuggling ring. When she grabs the boy who is wandering alone shots start ringing out immediately. Her boss, Layke Jackson opens the door when he hears the shots. He has been trying to derail the smuggling ring for awhile. While he has taken an oath with the police constable, he also has a personal reason for wanting to stop it. His nephew has been stolen. Hannah and Layke work closely together to bust the ring wide open.There is so much going on throughout the book you will not want it to end.

The author did a great job in writing a suspenseful story. My heart was pounding throughout the entire book. She also did a great job in creating a real feeling love story with Hannah and Layke. She also seems to know a lot about the Canadian Border patrol. I felt like I learned a lot about it.

I received a copy of this book through the JustRead Publicity Tours, all thoughts are my own.
