5.0 out of 5 stars Action Packed Oct. 5 2010
By LAS Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com

This book hits the ground running and barely slows up for a breath all the way through. Author Paula Graves just keeps getting better and better.

I am thoroughly enjoying the Cooper Justice series. The Cooper family is fabulous - not without flaws, of course, but they're loving and kind and know the difference between right and wrong.

In this book, Sam Cooper's little girl, Maddy, is nearly kidnapped. Because the perp is on the run, and the only one who can definitely identify him is Maddy's babysitter (and cousin) who is in a coma, the police assign someone to protect her.

Kristin Tandy has a tragic background of her own and it's created a bit of a phobia of children. She doesn't want to be around Maddy, but the little girl seems to have grown attached. As time goes by, so does Kristin, despite all her resolve not to.

The suspense is definitely the focus of this book. Though we're aware of the attraction between Sam and Kristin, and the growing attachment of Maddy to Kristin and vice versa, the strength is in the mystery.

Who is the man who tried to take Maddy? Each step the characters take while trying to figure out the answer is believable and clear. I admit to being a bit frustrated at not having suspects offered up so that I could try to figure it out on my own, but even so I was glued to the pages and as worried for Maddy's safety as Kristin and Sam were.

With some neat sub-plots including Sam's ex-wife and Kristin's past, this book was one of the strongest I've read in a while. There was one incident at the end that I didn't quite buy into, but without which the darkest moment and the exciting climax could never happen. So, I suspended my belief in order to see the book through to the end. And what an end it was! No, I won't say what happened, but I loved it and it helped to cement the tenuous relationship between Sam and Kristin.

If you enjoy a series that features an interesting and fun family of characters, and books that have strong suspense along with some yummy romance, then you won't go wrong selecting this one. Though I fully believe Chickasaw County Captive will stand strong on its own, I still recommend starting this series at the beginning. It's that good.

Some spoilers

This is the second book I’ve read from Paula Graves Cooper series and I’ve enjoyed both of them. Sam’s niece and daughter, Maddy, are attacked alone at home. Kristen is investigating the case with her partner. She is assigned as a bodyguard to Maddy and that’s how their interaction and involvement begins.

Maddy has a very difficult time being around children, or at least believes that she will not be able to relate to them and take care of them in any way. This irritates Sam a great deal especially since his ex-wife, Nora, did not take any interest in their daughter. But these feelings stem from a very tragic event in Kristen’s past. Despite that, Sam is still at times not sure whether he should further the attraction Kristen and him share. He doesn’t want Maddy to suffer. Nonetheless, it was a good romance where we get to see their feelings grow quickly. Overall, I might have given it a 5, but there were too many negative occurrences that were too common sense for characters to make.

Good points:

- The ex-wife, Nora, is engaged and not looking to get Maddy and Sam back.

- When one of the two main lead characters was crying from a nightmare, the other lead didn’t come into sooth the person, it was someone else. Which is great because a very large number of the Harlequin Intrigue books include a nightmare where one of the two lead characters comforts the other.

- A nice epilogue with a very cute gift given to Kristen from Sam.

Bad Points:

- TSTL moment. After the whole thing about keeping Maddy safe, and not even more than two days after the attack, they let her be taken to dinner with someone that does not have any skills in providing protection. Even though what happened at the Inn wasn’t an attack, the fact that Maddy was allowed to leave despite the danger, is very careless. I wish authors wouldn’t include these scenes where characters belittle the danger which they themselves made a big deal about.

- Also, nothing was confirmed about the first man that was caught, and yet Maddy was allowed to go back to school, without the bodyguard. There was security there, but then what about the role of the bodyguard?

- It didn’t really seem like Kristen was a bodyguard for Maddy. She was away from her several times. Even though she has a room at their house, there’s no point since she didn’t really hang out with her after the first couple of days. Most of the story focused on her doing investigating.

- There was another unidentified man that went to see Kristen’s mother with a picture of Maddy. Even though the guy went to the mother, Kristen didn't connect it to Maddy’s case…seriously. It would have made sense if even the slightest explanation or justification was given for why the connection didn’t get made, but we just see the characters not even thinking of the slightest reason one case could be connected to the other when it is so obvious it might be. Another very common bad point in Harlequin Intrigue books.
