Trigger Warning: while not explicit this novel does mention kidnapping and sex trafficking.
Kidnapping in Cameron Glen is the second title in the Cameron Glen series. This story was heartwrenching from the opening page until almost the final page. Chock full of emotions, the battering of the feelings that Jake and Emma are experiencing is intense. They married young, and lately have drifted from the closeness, the feeling of working as a team from their earlier years together. Now Jake is consumed with work, and Emma is overflowing with resentment and bitterness. Their fights are more frequent, and louder, and have finally brought this couple to the breaking point. Unfortunately, their teenage daughter has heard the fights and only parts of the words but it’s enough to convince her that her family falling apart is all her fault – and Fenn takes matters into her own hands with dire results.
The tension in Kidnapping in Cameron Glen flows off of the page and into the reader’s mind so easily. It’s the type of situation where both are right… and both are equally wrong in how they’re handling life and their issues at this point in time. In their desperate search for Fenn, they hurl angry, hurtful words at each other all the while wishing that things were easy between them as it once was. To be frank, this is not a couple that I can say I liked yet I felt the intensity of their words, their actions, and their desperation to find their daughter on page after page of the search for Fenn. It’s a gripping story, one I did not want to put down until finding out what happens… but I can’t say it’s an easy book, emotionally.
There is a lot that the reader should discover firsthand about Emma, Jake, and Fenn’s journey, I won’t be letting those details have free reign here (although they are subjects that I want to talk about because they are so important). I have left out mentions of Fenn’s situation for that needs to be a firsthand experience. There are vile villains here, there are also innocents who are trapped in ways most of us will (thankfully) never understand.
I believe this is a story that needs to be read by women, men, couples, parents… and even teens. There are life lessons to be learned here, and a gripping, satisfying story that tells us about those lessons… even when they are learned the hard way.
