The Kidnapping of Kenzie Thorn
by Liz Johnson
"...snappy and intriguing tale. The Kidnapping of Kenzie Thorn is an admirable start to Liz's writing career."
Kenzie Thorn has the
unusual job of educator to prison inmates, sponsored by her. Kenzie enjoys
the challenge of her work and only once has she
been threatened by an inmate. But then she meets prisoner Myles Parsons
whose piercing eyes distract and confuse her and seem to challenge her
at evey turn.
Kenzie's wariness turns to overwhelming fear when she is kidnapped by Myles and forced to drive to an unknown destination where Myles claims he is trying to save her. As Myles reveals more of his plan and himself, Kenzie soon realises more than her life is in danger.
Liz Johnson dives in the deep end with an intriguing prisoner, a frightening
kidnapping and a wild mountain lion in her debut novel, The Kidnapping
of Kenzie Thorn and scores a 9.0 from this judge! Kenzie and Myles' attraction
sparks from the first meeting, the story is engaging and the suspense proceeds
at a brisk pace. While the premise is somewhat improbable, Liz held my
attention throughout the entire story, kept me guessing and certainly invested
in Kenzie and Myle's relationship.
Liz will quickly attract fans of Love Inspired Suspense stories with her snappy and intriguing tale. The Kidnapping of Kenzie Thorn is an admirable start to Liz's writing career and I am anticipating enjoying more of her books to come.
