Mini Review Alert! Lots of things good things come in small packages like truffles, chocolate, vanilla slices, cookies and baklava. While you can’t eat this review, hopefully you will enjoy it.
This was quite an uncomfortable read as it focussed on the kidnapping of a small boy named Joey. His mother Crystal’s reaction is fairly odd as it takes her a while to report him missing from the park where he was playing. Texas Ranger Sarah Armstrong is brought in as a consultant on the case by her FBI boyfriend even though she and her partner are already investigating the death of prize winning bulls.
Read it for…
The tense situation when a hurricane hits and the investigation into who stole Joey. It might have trodden a fairly well-worn path when it came to trying to rescue the kid before the hurricane hit but it was executed well. I liked Sarah who approached her cases in a methodical fashion even though they clearly affected her. Sarah stressing over her relationship got a little irritating though as it took away from the case but it did make her seem a bit more realistic as a character.
