This book, Captured, by a Christian fiction author, Terri J. Haynes, is the first book of the Love and Faith romance series. I love the author’s style of writing. Haynes was detail and precise. This story was entertaining that kept me on my toes with each page. A quick read with twist and turns. The dynamics of the characters intertwined to make this book an excellent page turner. The characters are real, and you could relate to them. The dialogue was great- it moves smoothly. It started a little slowly but picks up the speed. I love the story line even though it was peppered with a dose of violence. It was a heartfelt story of connection! The theme of this story is human trafficking, dysfunctional family units, secrets, painful pasts, and a dedication for humankind.
The story is about Will, a dedicated, understanding, and straight to the point FBI agent and Savannah who works for a nonprofit organization to help victims of human trafficking. They began to work together on a case in DC. Will is trying to handle his work load and “fatherhood” before he transfers. Savannah is trying to deal with her dysfunctional family and secret past life before coming to DC.
I think this book lived up to my expectations and the author did a superior job of writing. I normally do not read romantic suspense books, but I loved this book because I could relate to the characters in the book. While reading, I felt as though I was a part of the story.
I would recommend this book with 5 stars. I will read more by this author. I will be waiting anxiously for the second book in this Love and Faith series.
