    Not your usual kidnapping story

    When I first began reading Fortune (gray) I was prepared to hate the main character with a passion. I could not envision ever sympathizing with a kidnapper. However, the more I read, and the more the author revealed about the true relationship between Rafe and Fortune, the more I became sympathetic to his actions. I began to truly understand the character, and while society says what he did was wrong, I would find it so difficult to convict him. This story is a classic Scudiere story. It definitely has her style of action and suspense. However, it transcends those genres. In essence, the story is about a man attempting to regain some of the time he never got to spend with his daughter. A lot of the story was about their relationship and Scudiere showed how truly touching the simplest of situations can be just by spending it with a loved one. Having a young daughter, I could easily feel the joy pleasure Rafe felt as he watched his daughter draw; or when she called him Daddy. The author conveyed these emotions seamlessly. As for the mystery, I eagerly followed along as bit by bit, the truth was revealed. Or at least as much of it as Rafe was able to discern. While I was able to figure out some of these answers well before they were revealed, I believe that has more to do with the fact this author is one of my favorites rather than any fault in her ability to keep readers guessing. While the ending saddened me, it felt right. I am eager to read the Fortune (red), the equel to this story. It occurs along the same timeline and tells the same story from another character’s viewpoint, filling in some of the questions from this story. While both stories are stand-alone stories, the full story is only known through reading both. If one chose to read both stories, I would personally recommend starting with Fortune (red). At least to me it gave away less that would effect how one views certain characters, thereby changing the experience of the reveal. I would give Fortune (gray) five stars and would eagerly recommend it to everyone.
