    TAKEN IN TEXAS by Susan Sleeman

    TAKEN IN TEXAS by Susan Sleeman is the fourth book in the McKade Law series. It’s the story of Kendall McKade. Deputy Kendall works under her father, who is the sheriff, and is working to get promoted to detective. The story starts off with Kendall doing a wellness check which quickly turns to a missing person and an assault on a police officer when she is blindsided by an intruder in the home and Eve Smalley is nowhere to be found. Enter out of town Detective Cord Goodwin, who unbeknown to Kendall, is Eve’s nephew and just happens to be Kendall’s ex-boyfriend. They team up to find Eve, but they both seem to feel the original sparks intensified. They will have to work together, but both pull back keeping their emotions in check. It didn’t work then and couldn’t work now either – could they? Kendall’s heart goes out to Cord when she finds out about his terrible losses. She sees the difficult situation he’s in trying to raise his nephew he’s in the process of adopting. Lucas is 12 going on 22 having had his life turned upside down lashing out at Cord with the brunt of his frustrations. Kendall steps in offering support in the way she knows – her faith and love. The way Susan Sleeman tells this exiting story of the rekindled romance between Kendall and Cord and how they work together to solve the crime of his missing aunt in a excitingly gripping way will have you sitting on the edge of your seat turning the pages while trying to figure out whodunit only to get it wrong more than once. It’s a book full of surprises that reminds you of the old saying “It’s not over until the fat lady sings.” Just don’t think it’s headed to the happily ever after until the very last page! I enjoyed the author’s attention to detail on the police details and procedures which made it informing and realistic. I love the way she works hope, love and faith as a running thread throughout the book. I highly recommend TAKEN IN TEXAS to anyone that loves a fantastic suspense story, an exciting romance story, or just a great all round Christian story. It can definitely be read as a standalone book. If like me now, you will want to check out the stories of the rest of the amazing McKade family by reading the rest of the books in this series. I know I will be!

    RELENTLESS PURSUIT!

    TAKEN IN TEXAS (McKade Law # 4) is a thriller! Susan Sleeman ends this series with a BANG! Each of these books can be read as a stand-alone but needs to be read in sequential order to best understand the flow of the family and the growth of the characters. The McKade Family is unique that almost all of the family members are involved in some type of Law Enforcement. Even their Grandfather is a Retired Sheriff. Each of them has a special skill set and they usually are backing up a family member when they go on a call. This also means they know each other’s personal business - sometimes way too much! Sleeman delivers a fantastic finish to the series as she leads readers on a thriller of an adrenaline rush. Deputy Sheriff Kendall McKade makes a simple stop for a Wellness Check, meets a madman wielding a rolling pin with her name on it and is rescued by Cord Goodwin, the Lawman who broke her heart. Kendall and Cord team up to find his missing Aunt while fighting off their growing mutual attraction. Even the safest places become vulnerable against a killer intent on settling his score with Kendall. The relentless pursuit is intense and the ending will completely take you by surprise! I was provided an ARC by the author. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and without influence. I have preordered a copy of this book for my own personal library.

    Nicely Paced Suspense!

    3.5 stars "Something was wrong here. Terribly wrong." As Deputy Kendall McKade conducts a welfare check on an unresponsive member of her community, she never expects to become a victim, or to come face-to-face with Detective Cord Goodwin. The now missing woman, Eve Smalley, just happens to be Cord's aunt and after being unable to reach her, Cord has driven over to the home himself. . . . . finding Kendall on the floor of the residence following a painful altercation with an intruder. Six years. It has been that long since Kendall has seen Cord; after their break-up, Cord left their local department and moved to Houston, but it seems that time and distance has not erased the unmistakable current of attraction between them. Perhaps they had been too hasty? Now is not the time to be reminiscing; a woman is missing and they have a job to do. Find Eve Smalley. Kendall and Cord have a lot to learn about God's timing in their lives, and between the pages of "Taken in Texas" they discover that God has a wonderful way of working out the details. I received a copy of this book from the author. The opinions stated are entirely my own.

    Cowboy Protector

    I will certainly miss the McKade clan! They were a great family! It was so nice to read Kendall's story though. Kendall wants to be a detective and this is her first case. An elderly woman is missing and it's up to Kendall to find her....too bad it's the aunt of her ex-boyfriend, Cord Goodwin! When things didn't work out with them, he moved away and Kendall hasn't seen him since so imagine her surprise when Kendall gets clocked by a wooden rolling pin and knocked out and as she comes to, the first person she sees is Cord!! Not what she expects or wants!! It soon becomes evident that Cord's aunt has been kidnapped and he's NOT leaving town until she's found so he's going to work right along Kendall's side to find her! Just great..... Kendall's family never did understand why they broke up so they welcome Cord right back into their lives! Oh, and Cord now is raising his teenaged nephew! There's a lot of action going on with the case AND at home! You'll definitely want to be reading this finale in the McKade series! It wraps up nicely and is very enjoyable!

    Susan Sleeman Defines Romantic Suspense

    The last of the McKade Law Series, Taken in Texas by Susan Sleeman is a juxtaposition. On the one hand, there is the warmth and welcome emanated by the McKade clan. Sleeman describes the ranch and the extended family so well, one could almost hear the laughter and feel the family hugs. On the other hand, desperation seeps out as Cord and “rookie detective” Kendall McKade hit brick walls investigating his aunt’s disappearance. Can Kendall and Cord forgive themselves and work confidently together despite their past to find his aunt before time is up, or will time expire for Kendall as well? Sleeman’s action is always heart-pounding and unpredictable. What I didn’t foresee coming was the “false ending.” That left me reeling, as well as the characters. If you enjoy Christian romantic suspense, read Susan Sleeman. She defines it. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. I was not required to leave a positive review. All opinions are my solely own.
