CHICKASAW COUNTY CAPTIVE
Rating: 4 Cups
His marriage may have gone down the drain, but D.A. Sam Cooper will always be grateful it gave him the gift of fatherhood. Maddy is his heart and soul, and he would move heaven and Earth to keep her safe.
The one thing that Detective Kristen Tandy knows with absolute certainty is that she has no business ever becoming a mother. She can never discount the fact that her sanity could be a ticking time bomb like her criminally insane mother’s, and she has no intention of taking that chance.
The last thing Kristen ever wanted to do was become a bodyguard for a four-year old, but that is exactly where her first assignment as a detective lands her. Kristen does not trust her own judgment when it comes to children, but Maddy, and most especially Sam, make it hard to keep her emotional distance. Sam can see and feel the fear that rolls off of Kristen when she interacts with Maddy, but he can also feel the desire. This is one woman who could be everything he and his daughter need, but she could also be the very one that breaks both of their hearts.
What could be more terrifying to a parent than losing a child and knowing that it was something you did to provoke it? Sam’s character really pulls at your heartstrings, and Kristen makes you want to weep. And though Kristen may seem a little too young for the role she is given, her past has matured her far beyond her physical years. Together these two have the power to draw you in, and keep you on the edge right through to the end.
