    The title really captured my attention. (I can really feel that this book is pack with suspenseful actions, a little bit of mysteries, and romance.) Never heard of the author for I was never a fan of Christian books, not until I stepped into the Logos Hope book fair. I'm now a big fan of Christian books. :) "Don't expect too much for it will only lead to disappointments." That's true for what I had experienced in this book.

Never heard of the author for I was never a fan of Christian books, not until I stepped into the Logos Hope book fair. I'm now a big fan of Christian books. :) "Don't expect too much for it will only lead to disappointments." That's true for what I had experienced in this book. I mean through the title, I really expected a lot. But somehow I got disappointed. Nevertheless, this book is still a good one for I know that our opinions differ from one another. So let's respect each others opinion. Thank you. :) The storyline was obviously simple. The twists or suspense was just the way I expected it. I mean, seriously, I thought it would be a different one and the readers would take their time guessing what will happen next, or their reactions would be unrecognizable or shocked looks for those unexpected plots. Unluckily, it's the other way around. My reaction was just a blank annoying face for I predicted all those scenes to happen. I'm really expecting a page-turner climax or a not-to-stop-reading-until-the-end. It did not arise my excitement contradicting its title which I found very interesting. (Okay, I know I'm just repeating some words/phrases/sentences. My apology. Time to stop now.) In every book I had read, I always make sure that I gained/learned something from it. Lessons learned from Kidnapped: First, never give up while we can, coz we'll never know what will happen next. If Luke gave up, he'll never find Caroline alive. There's a lot of opportunity waiting for us so we should always try. If we don't succeed at first, there's always a 2nd time, 3rd time, and so on. Meaning there's a lot of time to try, and no time to give up. So why would you consider the latter if the offer of the former is much better? :) Second, love for others and for our family is the best one we can give. Caroline switched places with her sister because of her love for her, and for her sister's family. Love is the most unselfish and priceless one that we can give to one another. It is given freely, and should be accepted wholeheartedly. Just like the love of God for each and everyone of us. According to John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Meaning, God sacrificed Jesus to save all of us from our sins. That's what I really called "true love". Giving your all yet you don't expect anything in return, but just a simple "thank you". Third, Faith will never leave us empty-handed. That's the best thing I loved about this book. The Faith of each character to one another especially the faith of Caroline and Sharon's family. That's immeasurable. Their faith keep them alive. Fourth, determination will lead us to success. If we're not determine(which I thought this one is similar to the 1st one, still I gonna write it) we will not achieve anything. Fifth, make friends with everyone but trusts only a few people for not all of them are genuine, some are waiting to destroy us. Just like Jason, he planned all of these to destroy Mark's family in terms of their financial needs for he knows they are rich.(Though I know this one is inevitable for Jason is the president of the bank where Mark deposited his money.) But still, we should learn to hide some things. We can never know what will happen. Lastly, always Pray. Yes, that's right. Prayer is the most powerful weapon we can use against all adversaries/hindrances/etc. We should always put God first in everything we do and never let go of Him once we already succeeded, for He's always there for us until eternity. Hope you like my review. Thanks everyone. God Bless!

    Dee Henderson is a favourite author in our house and this particular story, True Courage, is my favourite of her books. (It has since been re-released as Kidnapped.) Frank Hardin has been on the FBI's most wanted list for a while, with FBI Special Agent Luke Falcon and his partner FBI Special Agent Jackie Noner trying to track him down for the past year.

Frank Hardin has been on the FBI's most wanted list for a while, with FBI Special Agent Luke Falcon and his partner FBI Special Agent Jackie Noner trying to track him down for the past year. He manages to stay one step ahead of them. This new assignment is special - this one will personally hurt Luke Falcon. It is Labor Day weekend and Luke Falcon arrives at the crime scene of another of Frank Hardin's victims. This time it's Frank's girlfriend Karen. As Luke and Jackie get ready to follow up on leads, Luke receives a frantic call from Caroline Lane (his cousin's sister-in-law, and whom he has been dating for the past year) saying that Mark, Sharon and Benjamin haven't arrived at the holiday home. And so the nightmare begins as Luke begins the search for his missing family. Caroline Lane had been expecting a weekend break with her family, and hopefully seeing Luke again. She hadn't been prepared for the storm that breaks over her as she struggles to deal with the fact her family is missing. Luke is used to this sort of thing, she isn't. Yet it is her steady faith that Luke draws comfort from, and her self-sacrifice that touches his heart. This audiobook version of True Courage has been abridged fairly well and Todd McLaren is a good narrator - a big plus for me where audio books are concerned! Also there is music in lots of places to give atmosphere; and sound effects - footsteps, dog barking, phone ringing, helicopter whirring, to name a few - which help to bring the story alive. Whether you're resting due to ill health, doing household chores or travelling in the car, this audiobook is enjoyable to listen to over and over again!

    TRUE COURAGE (reprinted and renamed under the title KIDNAPPED) was somewhat disappointing to me when I first picked it up and attempted to start reading it. My very first disappointment came as soon as I realized that its plot was not connected to any of the previous books in the Uncommon Heroes series. Since all of three previous novels in this STELLAR series centered around three Navy SEAL officers and hinged nicely on one another, I expected to be introduced to, meet, and learn about a fourth TRUE COURAGE (reprinted and renamed under the title KIDNAPPED) was somewhat disappointing to me when I first picked it up and attempted to start reading it.

Since all of three previous novels in this STELLAR series centered around three Navy SEAL officers and hinged nicely on one another, I expected to be introduced to, meet, and learn about a fourth man on the same team. Sadly, though, I was introduced to an FBI agent named Luke Falcon instead. Then, my second disappointment came when I could not get interested in the plot as quickly as I wanted to. Contrary to all the other novels that I had read up to this point, I had to read four chapters of KIDNAPPED before I was intrigued enough to continue and finish reading the entire selection. Having said all that, I still feel that KIDNAPPED is still worthy of taking the time and effort to read. I still am fascinated by Dee Henderson and her talent!!!!

    This is vintage Henderson. A tense page-turner that still offers sweet breathing spaces of tender romance. Honestly, I absolutely adore the way this author develops a romance in her earlier works. So unhurried but with real intent. Luke and Caroline live in different worlds -- you really can't get farther apart than a school teacher and an FBI agent. She spends her days nurturing the children in her charge while he spends way too many hours wrestling with the dark depravity of the dregs of socie This is vintage Henderson.

She spends her days nurturing the children in her charge while he spends way too many hours wrestling with the dark depravity of the dregs of society. The innocent and the cynic. And yet they work...when they can get their schedules to mesh. And then their world turns upside down and the suspense takes off with so many twists and turns that it's impossible to catch your breath. And Henderson is so clever in her delivery -- some things we know ahead of the characters, others we're left to struggle right along side them. There's a real sense of urgency -- emotionally delivered from various points of view. Made my heart race as I sped my way to the end -- which brought sublime reader satisfaction!

It was later reprinted as Kidnapped and is its own novel unrelated to the Uncommon Heroes series. The book is fiction, it is a little romantic and has a lot of suspense and mystery to it. The book revolves around a family kidnapping. FBI agent Luke Falcon is working the case of the kidnapping and he also happens to be the cousin of Mark Falcon who is the father and husband of the family that is kidnapped. Mark Falcon is married to Sharon who has a sister, Caroline. Caroline and Luke are also dating. Mark and Sharon also have a young son named Benjamin who plays an important role in this book. The book is very suspenseful and I liked it. It jumped right into the action and it had some twists in it that you wouldn't expect. There were times in the book when it was a tad bit predictable but other than those few times it was very suspenseful. I think it was an interesting book and not too confusing, it kept you interested and wanting to keep reading. I don't think I was ever bored. There was always something going on. I think Kidnapped was a very suspenseful book and I recommend it to anyone who likes suspense!

    Although I preferred the SEAL stories and the Hornet pilot story from earlier books in the series, I found this FBI hero tale refreshing particularly in its Christian content. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy Dee Henderson's books a lot, but it gets old reading how every one of her main characters is in angst over salvation. Add in a supporting character, and potential love interest, who is on the opposite side of the fence belief-wise and it's her typical novel formula.

I was so glad to meet to Christian characters who simply faced challenges of living their faith every day through trials, tests, and tragedy. I loved the note Caroline wrote to Luke about how God prepared him for his difficult job in the FBI. I would dearly love to slip that note into the pockets of all the heroes I know who struggle with the demands of their day to day lives.

    An intense read that I couldn't put down. The only thing I thought was odd was that being part of the Uncommon Heroes series it didn't have the same trend as the other three...none of the characters from the last book were mentioned. But that didn't take away the feel of the book. The romance was just about right for me and the characters were real with their emotions and struggles.

    This was definitely the best book in the series. It's actually not relatead to the other books, so you could read this one without reading the others. The author does a good job of blending Christian perspectives into the story without being overbearing.

    I didn't know that much about ways FBI dealt with kidnapping situations. This was interesting from that point of view, but the really great part was how the different characters dealt with a horrible situation thru their Christian faith. Really loved this book and the Uncommon Heroes series.

    The thing I enjoy about Dee Henderson is the way she develops her characters. We see their weaknesses and see them turning to God for strength. This was very suspenseful and hard to put down for the last third of the book.

    I'm trying to figure out the relationships here. Mark and Luke are cousins, but Paul (Full Disclosure) doesn't have a brother named Mark or Luke, so is Paul another cousin? I don't think I'll ever get the answer. Luke's cousin Mark married Caroline's sister Sharon. Luke and Caroline are sort of dating, but Caroline isn't sure about being in a relationship with a man who's career comes first. They're both thrown for a loop when Mark, Sharon, & Benjamin go missing. Who took them and why? The chase I'm trying to figure out the relationships here.

They're both thrown for a loop when Mark, Sharon, & Benjamin go missing. Who took them and why? The chase is on and as time passes, Luke grows despondent that he can bring them all back alive. I honestly am still not quite sure what the motive was other than money. Did (view spoiler)[Jason (hide spoiler)] need money and thought a good way to get it would be to kidnap Benjamin for ransom? The (view spoiler)[stalker (hide spoiler)] angle was weird too. It helped fill in some pieces, but it was also a little confusing. All that aside, this was a thrilling book! Full of suspense and super intense. The emotions were raw and you could feel everything the characters were feeling. Benjamin was probably my favorite character. I also like how Henderson leaves her endings slightly open. I'm kind of tired of books ending with a wedding. Henderson ends with the idea of a happy future, but leaves room for her characters to grown and get to know each other more. Especially in stories where they two MCs have only known each other a short time, that's super nice.

    This one was the best of the bunch...and I guess at some point it was re-titled as a stand-alone book, I think the new name was Kidnapped. I can see why that was the case! There was not one character from the first three books and no military connection. This was an FBI tale, and although there were a few procedural things I don’t think would be allowed in real life, it was definitely a good read!

    Mindy Smith

    This was a good book. It was really slow for the first ⅔ of the book though, so that brought it down to a 3.5 for me. But I really liked the climax! It seemed a lot longer than the previous books in the series-which was my complaint about those ones. I wasn’t particularly fond of Luke as a character but I did like Caroline. Not much time was spent building the characters very well, it seemed like. But it was very suspenseful towards the end and that was enjoyable.

    Kw

    By far my favorite of this series. Really a good story. And about this series - the four books are stand-alone novels, and do not need to be read in sequence as there is no connection except that some of the characters in one book may have met some from another book. They are a group, not a sequence.

  18. 4 out of 5

    Larisha

    Should be a stand-alone book, instead of book 4 in the series. Totally unrelated to the other 3 books. The storyline was good, but felt dated at times. There was too much suspense and not enough connection between Luke and Caroline. It’s a good book. It's just not what you're expecting as the 4th book in the series.

    I really enjoy Dee Henderson because you can read her books and not worry about bad language or your thirteen year old granddaughter reading them. I think this is one of her best. It was a page turner and hard to put down.

    Great story. Loved the suspense, kept me on the edge of my seat every step of the way (I expected nothing less from Dee Henderson). The themes of trusting God and walking through a storm were fantastic, and I enjoyed the overall journey.
