Abducted by Janice Cantore
Book blurb from goodreads.com : “After solving the mayor s murder and exposing corruption among the top brass in Las Playas, Carly Edwards is happy to be back on patrol with her partner, Joe, putting bad guys behind bars. For once, everything in life seems to be going right. But then everything starts going wrong. Slow to recover from an injury, her ex-husband, Nick, begins pulling away just as they were starting to get close again. Meanwhile, when Joe s wife lands in the hospital with a mysterious illness, their baby is kidnapped. As Carly chases down every lead in a desperate search to find the baby, her newfound faith is pushed to its limits.”
Why I like this cover: You look once, then you look again, right? Cause suddenly you realize…she’s holding a gun on you! THAT is pretty much the most striking thing about this cover. Carly, with straight blond hair and piercing eyes (that have just a little makeup), looks just like a woman police officer! She certainly looks stern enough. And also – note the badge on the sleeve for the arm that’s holding the gun. Interestingly enough, she’s not peeking through a door when you look closely. It’s a hallway with the center cut out for her picture. Striking? I think so! Definitely a book I want to read someday.
