Caller ID

From Goodreads: When twenty-three-year-old Courtney Beckham is abducted near her home, the search turns up more than just a kidnapping crime. FBI agent Jason Edwards investigates the ten-million-dollar ransom and stumbles upon something he wasn't meant to find. When Courtney catches a glimpse of the caller ID in her kidnapper's home, what she sees turns her world upside down.

I love a good suspense book and this one fit the bill! Courtney Beckham is twenty-three, comes from a wealthy family and lives a charmed life. She's beautiful and has lots of guys after her, but due to a bad experience in her past, it's hard for her to get close to any of them. She's finishing college and works for her father, a developer, whenever he needs her help. 

There was a murder near her home a year ago and the murderer still hadn't been caught so her father didn't want her to ride her horse in the woods or run alone. Her dad takes her mom out of town for a surprise getaway one weekend. She has really missed riding her horse in the woods and decides that what her parents don't know won't hurt them. She takes off without anyone knowing where she's gone (you can see where this is going, right?). While she's in the woods, her dog runs away and when she chases after him, she discovers something she's not supposed to see. She's caught and taken captive. When the person in charge finds out who they have, the men are ordered not to harm her. She finds out who is behind her kidnapping when she sees their number on the caller ID and decides to get away so she can expose them. 

In the meantime, the FBI has been called in and agent Jason Edwards learns all about Courtney and her life. He heads to the woods alone to do some investigating and figures out what's going on. He is stunned by what he finds. 

There are lots of twists and turns in this book (and yes, even some romance!) and I read it quickly because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a romantic, suspenseful story.

My Rating: 4 stars
