From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Catch Me and The Perfect Husband...

Three siblings searching for the truth about their family are about to find more than they bargained for.

When shy and reserved Maggie Ferringer was called for jury duty, she never expected to be kidnapped by an escaped convict. But when Cain Cannon, disguised as a prison guard, pulls a gun, she has no choice but to be taken hostage. Cain claims that he’s innocent of killing his girlfriend six years ago and now he wants revenge on the people who put him behind bars.

Soon, Maggie becomes more than just a hostage to Cain. As they slowly begin to share the secrets of their respective pasts, Maggie discovers that she wants to fight for Cain’s freedom—because he just might be the kind of man she could love. 

My Rating:
I was pretty excited to read this, but also carried many reservations about it, as Lisa Gardner is my absolute all-time favorite author, so I was excited to read more of her work, but very apprehensive about a different type of book from her, but I must say that I honestly wasn't disappointed.  I have heard a few people say that they just aren't up to par with her mystery books, but I didn't have a problem with the book at all!  As a matter of fact, I think I finished this book in an all-time record quick 1 day.  I read some of it one evening until I fell asleep, and finished the rest the very next evening after work!  It was so easy to read and hard to put down, so I enjoyed that!

I thought that the story was an intriguing story which kept me interested throughout.  I had to find out what happened with Maggie and Cain!  Even though Cain was the antagonist throughout the story, I couldn't help but find myself rooting for him.  Some of the story even made me giggle, thinking about what was happening!  I thought that Scott/Gardner did well adding in the romance as well.

Scott/Gardner sure has found the perfect career in writing because man can that woman do it all!! She is such a phenomenal writer, and I am so pleased to have found her many years ago and admire her work and writing!

Overall, I thought that it was a great, quick story, which kept my full attention from the beginning until the end, so I absolutely will not hesitate to go out and get the remaining two books of the Family Secrets series!  I want to learn more about Maggie's brother's!
