When I pick up a Susan Sleeman book, I know I’m in for a gripping, intriguing read. Taken in Texas starts out strong with a missing woman, a feisty and courageous heroine, and a strong-willed, take-charge hero who just happens to still have feelings for said heroine. I enjoyed the interaction between Kendall McKade and Cord Goodwin as they tried to dance around and control their lingering feelings for each other.
Sleeman’s strong background in law enforcement research shines through this story as her knowledge gives the tale authenticity. The creative twists and turns in the book add a dimension of surprise and intrigue. Themes of forgiveness of self and others, importance of family, and trust in God are woven seamlessly throughout.
Although this is the last book in the McKade Law series, it can easily be read as a standalone story. It was an added bonus for me to see characters from the other books show up in this one. All in all, it’s a great conclusion to the McKade series. I would recommend this to those who enjoy clean Christian romantic suspense.
