The Kidnapping of Kenzie Thorn by Liz Johnson

Hi Friends,

I wanted to tell you about the book I'm reading and enjoying now - The Kidnapping of Kenzie Thorn by Liz Johnson. Liz is a publicist at my publishing house, and this is her first book. It's a Love Inspired Suspense, so if you like romantic suspense, check it out! Here's a bit about it:


Myles Parsons is just another inmate in Kenzie Thorn’s GED course until he kidnaps her, offering only a feeble explanation–that he’s actually FBI Special Agent Myles Borden. Terrified, Kenzie doesn’t want to believe his story of being undercover to protect her. Moreover, she can’t believe that someone might really want her dead.

But just when Myles thinks he has her out of harm’s way, his plans start to fall apart. He attempts to take Kenzie to a safe house—but the stubborn woman won’t go! So together they must uncover the clues that will reveal a most shocking perpetrator. All the while Myles tries to keep his distance from Kenzie … but finds himself falling in love.
