Around the turn of the millennium, Toni Fortune arranges for two friends, Ben and Wesley, to kidnap a girl, Krystal Mayes, on whom he seeks revenge.
The object is to scare her as well as to raise money to assist in his courtship of his new love, Tina.
Unknowingly, his friends grab the wrong girl causing unforeseen complications. Krystal arrives home after the ransom has been received.
Realising that Christina Bergman has been taken in mistake for Krystal, the two fathers can see no alternative to working together.
Bergman collects the money whilst Mayes continues to talk to the kidnappers.
This not only threatens their trust in each other but is complicated by the changing relationship between the kidnappers and their captive.

I found the descriptive sections made it a bit slow for me, but it is well written.
The pace is good and the story moves along without flagging, holding my interest throughout.......... The tension holds up well, as does the skilfully handled ending.
A Good Read : I enjoyed reading this book. It's a simple yet compelling tale of kidnap and relationships with a touching ending. The ransom amount demanded seemed to indicate the naivity of the kidnappers but it didn't detract from the story which I enjoyed.L E
