Book Review-Abducted: A Kate Pomeroy Mystery Book 3-Linda Watkins

Friday, May 6, 2022

This one had me gulping and shivering at what was being done to Dr. Kate Pomeroy when she was abducted by her nemesis two days before her marriage to Jeremy.. This is the worst nightmare scenario I can possibly think of.

Jeremy called in all the people he knew since the FBI and the police were getting no where fast. His friends were shady characters and they were bound and determined to help him. He had to go under cover to different parts of the world to find Kate-and bring her home again.

I can't say I blame them for what they did at the end--and I doubt you will blame them either!!

There are many twists and turns--and her nemesis was actually quite brilliant-but deadly! You will love how Kate managed to escape!
