Taken In

by Erica Abbott

CJ St. Clair left Savannah for Colorado years ago and never looked back. But a summons from a most unexpected source compels her to return to Georgia in the midst of a crisis. A murder accusation threatens to tear her family apart—unless CJ can unravel a case the police believe has already been solved.

Her partner Alex has a struggle of her own, dealing with a tragedy from her past that might derail her career. As they cope with murder both recent and long ago, CJ and Alex discover how much claim the past has on their future.

Lambda Literary Review
Abbott has skillfully portrayed the characters in this tale. A bit of a “cozy” with a little “thriller” thrown in for good measure, the story makes us feel as if we’re walking alongside CJ and Alex, discovering answers and experiencing how each revelation affects them. This story is an easy read—delightfully entertaining, jam-packed with baffling suspects and a surprising twist, all leading us to its satisfying end. A great read for the couch or the beach.

Lex Kent’s Reviews - I enjoyed getting to know more background on CJ. These books are mystery romances, but they still have enough excitement to keep you on your toes. Technically, this book could be read alone, since the crime solves itself in one book. But if this is the first Alex and CJ book you have read, you would be missing out on so much. Especially the chemistry that brought these two together.

Pin’s Reviews - Erica Abbott's writing is great as usual with all literary elements done well. The plot is strong and very interesting with a dominating mystery-solving part which holds one's interest all through. Taken In is a delight to read as well as the rest of this series and I recommend it heartily.
