Review: TAKEN / By Dee Henderson

Taken, / by Dee Henderson

Adult     Rating:     4

takenAward-winning author Dee Henderson pens another contemporary romantic suspense featuring a woman who was abducted as a teen and finds a way home, with the help of a private investigator.

In Taken, sixteen-year-old Shannon Bliss was abducted and forced to participate in the activities of the Jacoby crime family for more than ten years. She wants to resume a normal life but also wants to see them pay for their crimes against her and others.


Henderson is an excellent storyteller, weaving intricate plot twists with complex character development. Violence in the story is appropriate but not graphic, and the faith element is light and not overpowering. Taken is lighter on the romance and relationships than her other novels, with slightly more emphasis on the suspense which will keep the reader guessing who is responsible for Shannon’s abduction.

  1. I haven’t read her for a while. I wonder if this is inspired by Patty Hearst?
