BOOK REVIEW - FINDING KATE HUNTLEY, BY THERESA RAGAN

Want a free romantic suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat? FINDING KATE HUNTLEY, by Theresa Ragan, is a romantic suspense that combines romance, murder, and adventure in a fast-paced read. Theresa has graciously offered a free e-book to each person who comments. Please be certain to include your email in your comment, because you will be so glad to get a copy of this book!



When Kate Huntley was fifteen, she saw her father murdered during a Caribbean vacation off the coast of Haiti. He barely managed to save Kate after he fought off his attacker. Who would harm her father? He was a harmless scientist working to find a cure for AIDS. She lives to avenge him, and remains in Haiti's tough backstreets--where life is hard and lives come cheap. She manages to remain under the murderer(s) radar.

Ten years later, while gaining mental and physical strength with her continued determination, she works for a charter business in Port-au-Prince. But she has not yet found her father’s killer nor avenged her father’s death. Every day she thinks of him and heeds her father’s final words, “Trust no one!” She vows she will never be caught helpless again and has turned into a real kickass heroine. Although she is strong and capable, there’s a sense of inner vulnerability to her too that I found endearing. Without her knowledge, her image is caught on a routine satellite photo that alerts the FBI. They want to talk to her about her father's death and why she's remained missing.

Jack Coffey is a rookie FBI agent sent to find missing Kate and bring her home to the States. At the same time, he is being framed. He realizes he’s been naive and feels foolish, but decides to fight back. Now he trusts no one--something he and Kate have in common. He is a charming man, and a real hunk. Kate discovers him following her after being told a man has asked for her. She confronts him, and their race begins. He doesn’t understand why she won’t trust him; she doesn’t understand why he trusts people who have betrayed him.

The fast-paced plot sweeps the reader along with barely time for a deep breath. I loved the action-filled suspense that kept me guessing to the climax. I also loved the relationship between Kate and Jack as it built from sex and developed into a true romance. FINDING KATE HUNTLEY is a book that will please readers on many levels. I recommend it highly to anyone who reads romance, mystery, suspense, and adventure.
