Publisher's Summary

In an instant, Jennifer’s life is forever altered.

When their 10-year-old daughter, Sarah, is abducted in Dubai, expats Jennifer and Kevin are thrown into an unimaginable nightmare. With very little help provided by the local authorities and the US embassy, Jennifer watches her life erode away and the tension in her marriage increase. Driven by rage and desperation, she is forced to make decisions she never thought possible.

An investigation without answers. A cover-up. A conspiracy. A betrayal.

There is no turning back.

What would you do if your child was taken?

Desert Rose was named Most Promising Manuscript at the 2018 Alaskan Writers Guild Conference.

An interesting read

One of the things I like about this book is how different it is from others I've read. Sure, it's foundation is a mystery and it's got some suspense, but even more so, it explains a world many don't have the opportunity to explore, and the delicacies and Expat must navigate while living in such a different space than home.

The part I loved the most was the tie-in to the title - the story of the desert rose. In a story line that seemed hopeless, the side step into how something so delicate as a rose could survive in the desert.

Aside from a handful of slow spots throughout the plot, this story was a page-turner. I desperately wanted a happy ending, wanted closure for these characters, that I had to keep reading. It was wrapped up so quickly, I would have liked the story to move to Part II and the end sooner than it had so that more weight could have been spent in those portions of the book.
