I've read lots of books with female doctor protagonists and lots of books with similar plots to the kidnapper plot, and this one underwhelmed me on both counts. The focus on Christianity that was woven throughout also made the book feel 'soft' to me, that whenever a climactic point came, the solution was to pray and all would work out in the end. Although I'm a Christian myself, my opinion on the value of prayer has changed in recent years, such that if God is going to help out, He will without my having to directly ask for it, and if He isn't, then I need to devote my resources to figuring out a solution on my own.
Overall, it was a quick read and not a horrible book, just light reading that felt lacking in the kind of substance I was looking for, and I probably won't seek out the other 2 books in the series.
