Product Description

Product Description


On her way to work, for one terrifying instant Jennifer Canfield sees a tiny hand in the trunk of a car that barely misses slamming into her van. A doll? A child? With no time to think she must act and so begins a non-stop, breathlessly suspenseful journey to find the truth and possibly save a life. Stephen Baron, a road construction worker, joins her in her pursuit of a possible kidnapper through the hills of California. And where the chase ends reveals exactly how courage and love can show up when we least expect them and change everything.

(Novella, about 150 pages)

HASH(0x9f35e540) out of 5 stars Suspense throughout March 17 2012
By P. Irvin - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read this book in one sitting. While it's a fast read, it is not an easy one. There is a depth to the story that, while unspoken in words, is breathed into the spirit as the layers of the story fold back. The main characters are all likeable people, except, of course, the bad guy. One thing that stood out to me was the author's handling of the bad guy. Although he is present, not much time is wasted in delving into who he is, which in the end seems to make him that much more evil.

The story is one of a kidnapping, the chase, the wounded soul of the protagonist, and her unlikely partner in rescue. I fully enjoyed the book. It made for a great Sunday afternoon read.

Thanks go out to the author, Carolyn Nash, for such a good story. She has written another book, Raising Abel, which I also intend to read.

HASH(0x9f35e78c) out of 5 stars No donuts, but the lady found something far more valuable April 14 2012
By J. Chambers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Single mom Jennifer Canfield's day started out like most any other weekday - a short commute to work, with a stop for a diet-busting chocolate donut. Little did she know that before the day was done she would experience a gamut of emotions, including anger, bitterness, fear, and just perhaps some inklings of a better life to come.

"The Trunk Key" was a suspenseful story of a wild and deadly cross-country pursuit that began simply enough with a good citizen trying to do her civic duty, but soon escalated into a life or death situation. The story was well written, with two likable, sympathetic characters who by chance found themselves thrown together in a mission to prevent a great evil from occurring, an evil that brought back extremely painful memories to one of them.

Proofreading could have been better. I found a few typos, but not enough to be distracting.

With 1,960 Kindle locations, "The Trunk Key" was the length of a short novella.

HASH(0x9f35e9cc) out of 5 stars Hats off, Ms. Nash-More please!!!! April 14 2012

I found this in the kindle store last night, purchased it, and read it without leaving my chair. It is the best short piece I have read in a long time and kept me reading until the end. I do hope this author will write more!!! Also, I would like to say that it is refreshing to find a piece of short fiction amoung the singles. I would certainly buy more of this type of shotr story. Unlike many of them, this had depth and made sense.

HASH(0x9f35eb70) out of 5 stars A page turner! March 30 2012
By Joan M Childs - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Its been awhile since I enjoyed a book that made me so eager to get to the next page. I read most of this book while waiting at the doctor's office, and it made a very long wait go by quickly. The great dialog and edge-of-your-seat suspense will keep your interest and you'll find yourself finishing this book wishing for more. I love that Ms. Nash's protagonist is not a twenty-something beauty queen.The fact that she could be your next door neighbor makes her easy to like and identify with.The story is set in the rugged hills above California's San Joaquin Valley and the author is obviously familiar with the area.She uses great description to provide a compelling backdrop for Jenny's predicament. When circumstances beyond her control throw Jenny into a life or death situation, she follows her conscience and tries to do the right thing. It leads her to a dangerous adventure and unexpected romance. I'd recommend this book to anyone looking for a fast paced thrill ride lined with an underlying message of hope.

I absolutely loved this short story! I immediately identified with the main character and couldn't wait to get home from work to continue reading. It is very well-written and flows naturally. I usually can't handle anything involving children in harm's way, but this gave me only hope and good feelings, although it was suspenseful enough to have me biting my nails the entire time! I will recommend it to everyone I know. I don't understand the two negative reviews. There are only a few curse words, and seriously, if a madman has kidnapped a child and is shooting at you, some choice words are going to fly no matter how holy you are! The character's thoughts about the crazy situation were exactly what a normal middle-class American woman would have been feeling. I will be looking for other books by this author.
