Taken is the book that comes before Played. It starts with Kayla marrying a man who said his name is Nick. Kayla gets duped and the real Nick gets his identity stolen. They team up to try to find Evan the con man who is out to get gold stolen in the 1950's. A nice quick read that has you wanting to shout at the characters at times. ( )

Taken was a very interesting, fast-paced story. This is the first book I’ve read by author, Barbara Freethy. I could see her becoming a favorite, real quick. I enjoyed the intriguing mystery of the plot. A great who-dun-it book. I found the characters to be well developed and very mysterious. I loved the ending and how it was left open. I am really looking forward to reading the sequel, Played. ( )

Barbara Freethy has fast become one of my favorite romantic suspense authors. The books are full of twists and turns and a multitude of threads, which she handles deftly, weaving them all together to make a believable and satisfying conclusion. I've been slowly collecting her backlist.

In Taken, a young woman's decision to take a chance on love has disastrous consequences when her brand-new husband goes out for ice... and never comes back. Weeks later, she goes past his house, and finds another man living there, claiming to have the same name.

A con artist, the FBI, a decades-old robbery and jailbreak, a 12-year-old grudge, people with hidden pasts and shadowy presents... and two people trying to unravel it all while becoming inextricably entwined with each other.

*sigh* Yeah, I suck at writing about books I like.

Good book. I recommend it. ( )
