    A Mystery With Surprises!

    A mystery with surprises. Full out family drama. Its interesting to see the individual take of family members, how they each interpret the way they were treated as they grew up, and how they react to life now. Surround that with kidnapping, our intrepid heroes and its a well done ride. There are good and bad in all walks of life, but it still hurts to see. The icing on the cake is the little snip it that comes out towards the end. I so wanted more detail on whys of that. Thank you Dale Mayer and Booksprout for the arc. I freely volunteer my thoughts and opinions.

    So Good!

    Another great Mavericks adventure! Gavin is off to Hawaii, but not for a tropical vacay. He is there, with his teammate Shane, to rescue a family of four - parents and two adult daughters - who have been kidnapped right off the street! Gavin and Shane are Seal Team buddies who have worked together in the past and are good friends as well. Together, they hope to find enough clues to rescue the family before anything nasty happens to anyone and find the culprits who are responsible. This story gets right into it with Rosalina, the younger sister, being brave enough to get free, along with her older sister, Melinda and together escape their captors. I immediately liked the character of Rosalina and her analytical approach to life, despite a sad and emotionally empty childhood. Because she was the “healthy” one, she was treated as second best or simply ignored as well as the “smart” one who didn’t need parental attention unlike her older sister, Melinda, who was born with a partial leg and needed a prosthetic. Melinda also required her parents’ uninterrupted attention to soothe her need to be the only child that mattered. She is a totally entitled spoiled brat who has always detested her younger sister. I like that Rosalina is crazy smart and isn’t one to broadcast her abilities. But I feel sorry that she can’t help but feel alone and lonely when she is not working in her lab. Melinda, on the other hand, has never had to do anything to substantiate her place in this family. She has always been looked upon as the one who always “needs” something, attention, care, more attention, from her parents. They always catered to Melinda and didn’t have enough time to pay attention to Rosalina. Early on, you get the impression that Melinda is a selfish, demanding, and immature adult who is used to getting anything she wants. She has always created situations where she commanded all of the attention from their parents leaving Rosalina on her own. Rosalina’s journey with Gavin as they search for her missing parents is filled with danger, but Rosalina has a good grasp of how or why Gavin and Shane must do the things they do in order to find information on the whereabouts of the older couple. I enjoyed how Rosalina gave her viewpoint to the guys which always came from her analyzing the facts no matter how hurtful the findings may be. I also appreciated Gavin’s acceptance of Rosalina’s ability to separate feelings from facts. He also liked that she does not act like a drama queen whenever things get tense or dangerous. Gavin is a no nonsense kind of guy and doesn’t suffer lies or deceit easily. He tends to operate on a high code of ethics and demands straight forward actions from others. These two are meant for each other and work very well together in a high stress situation involving the health and well being of her older parents. Rosalina is truly heartsick that her parents have been abused, but she is completely determined to make the abuser pay for their actions. I loved the unconditional love Rosalina has for her parents despite her lonely childhood. A great story and the true meaning behind tough love and the ultimate love of family.

    Gavin goes to honolulu

    This Maverick series is really interesting, entertaining and difficult to put down. In this story Gavin finds himself on his way to Honolulu with Shane to help. A family planned a trip through Japan and then Hawaii and the dad planned a bit of business on this vacation time. However, someone else planned evil pursuits as well and kidnapped the parents and two adult daughters. Upon arrival in Honolulu, Gavin was surprised to be greeted by Steve, whom he had worked with in the past. Steve is the older daughter's fiance and was able to update them further about family dynamics etc. on the way to the hotel. So the mystery becomes more of a problem as Rosalina escapes her bonds and frees her older sister Melinda. However the parents are nowhere to be found. Rosalina explains more of the family's history and the search continues. Very interesting history and the chase is perfect. By the time the story was finished I think I suspected everyone at one point or another. Very well done as always. The epilogue talks of Shane finding his new assignment including a hostage situation and a friend as well. Can't wait!

    Kidnappings and SEALs

    This is prime Dale Mayer craft -- kidnappings, thinning the suspect list and evil where you least expect it. This tale will keep you guessing and it is a page turner. It is drama and romance and protection from both sides. Strong characters, intelligent women (OK, one intelligent and one drama queen), and strength all around. Bravo once again!

    Loved it

    Another cracking story in Dale Mayer's Maverick series. The Mavericks are a black opps organization that is made up of elite ex military personnel who want to work to do good without the constraints of the military. Gavin Werkster had assisted ex navy SEAL colleague Lennox on his initiation mission and now it was his turn to lead a mission, another ex colleague Shane was to assist him. Professor Rennert, a scientist and head of the Trident Corporation has two daughters, the eldest one Belinda was born without a leg and since then his company had specialised in the manufacture of high end prosthetics, his younger daughter by ten years, Rosalina was a scientist in her own right and headed her own team within Trident. The professor, his wife and two daughters had been kidnapped, Gavin and Shane were briefed by Steve Arbrey another ex navy colleague of Gavin and who was engaged to the eldest daughter Belinda. As this story unfolds the pace is fast and the action dynamic. Were they being held for ransom ? Was this corporate espionage or was it something more sinister ?..........who wanted them dead ? This fast moving story covers kidnapping, murder, sibling rivalry and of course blossoming romance, the suspect pool is vast and the body count high. A great book that subtly leads into Shane's story, I can't wait to read that. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
