Publisher's Summary

When a child disappears, every second counts.

As a relatively new FBI agent, Ann Davidson struggles with personalizing the cases. Hours after delivering the news that a boy's murder investigation has officially gone cold, Ann and her partner, Patrick Duncan, catch a new case: a custody kidnapping. They have precious little time to find the victim, two-year-old Josiah Quinn. If even a day goes by without locating the boy, the odds of finding him drop to nearly nothing.

They couldn't save the other boy, but Ann's determined not to fail again.

Kidnapped

Great book, as always. I love the Heartfelt Cases books, and crave more. I wish this one were longer, but it definitely fed my appetite for her series. A young boy is kidnapped by his father. The reason? A hard custody battle between mom and dad. The dad is threatened with the mom's words of that she's taking the son away and he'll never see him again. He freaks, and takes the kid. This book hit me hard. I've lived this. The emotions are still on my sleeve. Wanting to be a great father, but feeling like you're about to lose everything precious to you. I could feel empathy for all the characters. Great short story. I wish it were longer, but it was still great. I love all the Heartfelt Case Files, and can't wait to read/listen to more. The narrator for this book was great!

Excellent story

Great short story and the writing is superb. Great clean read. My only complaint was the narration a tad as when she says s it sounds almost like a lisp so it was a little distracting

A great introduction to a series

logging in at just over an hour - this short story is a great introduction to an FBI agent with heart, where the characters work to use all their training and skill to resolve a hostage situation. True police-work is not about guns -- it's about heart

Short but good!

I thoroughly enjoyed it. in fact I've enjoyed the entire Heartfelt series! I wish the author would write some more books continuing the series. They're that good!

Every second counts

The only reason it is a four star is because it it too short, I would have loved it to have been longer. But it is a great prequel to the start of a new series. I think it is going to be fun learning about the characters as they seem interesting a teacher becoming an FBI agent. Still reeling from giving the parents of a missing boy the bad news that they have no leads and the case has officially gone cold, Ann is off and running trying to track down a missing two year old boy stolen from day care by his father in a bitter divorce case. Knowing the father won't hurt him doesn't make the case any easier, when he can take the boy out of the county and just how far has the mother pushed him, for him to think the only option let is kidnapping? And what will the dad do if he feels trapped? Ann must use everything she has learnt and her faith to bring this kidnapping to a better conclusion. I like the narrator, she had a laid back way of speaking that built up the tension as the story unfolded.

Short easy read

Quite a short book makes it feel like an episode on tv of a police show. A bit of an insight into the thinking of an FBI agent and her training, but lacked much background to the story.
