Angelina Matthews has everything—rich, famous and beautiful—until the day she’s kidnapped and trapped in a basement with a madman, wearing only a T-shirt. The dirt is his—the blood is hers. Tormented and tortured, she cries out to God. Help comes in the form of Nate Goodman. When their paths cross months later, Nate discovers Angelina is still trapped—not in a basement but in the memories she can’t escape. Nate knows all about being trapped—and getting un-trapped. As an ex-Chicago cop he’s had his own demons to wrestle, but his faith helped him to move forward. He reaches out to Angelina whose paranoid delusions have her trapped still. But are they delusions?

Losing the most important people in one’s life has a way of forcing a belief in God out of one’s heart and mind. But times of trouble and desperation have a way of forcing people to remember where they came from and to call out to the one true God who created them. For Ange Matthews, this is exactly what happened. When her parents died, she wandered away from God and became a socialite without a purpose or foundation.
However, when a madman traps her and attacks her, she finds herself crying out to God. I could understand how she became the person she did. I can not imagine dealing with my parents dying at a young age. But things liked being trapped have a way of forcing someone to remember what is important in life and who God is.
Also, going through such a traumatic event has a way of holding one hostage in the memories and making it impossible to move on in any direction. But Ange is blessed to have a police officer, Nate Goodman, come to her rescue. Nate is everything I imagine a relatively small community police officer to be. Once Ange’s cousin is able to convince him her cousin is missing, he sets out to find her.
However, he is not satisfied to just rescue her and then vanish. He recognizes the state of mind she is and sets out to help her escape from the torment of her memories. I could only hope to have someone rescue me in that way if I was ever in such a devastating circumstance. I can not say I disliked Ange, to begin with, but I realized she had the potential to become more than a mindless socialite only out to party and have fun.
So if you like to read books about overcoming horrible events to find a new future, check out this book for yourself.
I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

TRAPPED is my latest suspense novel. And suspenseful, it is! With just the right about of romance to make it even better.
You can’t help but love Nate Goodman—small-town policeman, believer in truth, justice, and Jesus—comes back home to the sleepy town of Mt. Pleasant, Ohio to work because nothing ever happens—until it does.
Angelina Matthews has everything. She’s rich, famous and beautiful until the day she’s kidnapped and trapped in a basement with a madman. Tormented and tortured, she cries out to God.
Help comes in the form of Nate Goodman.
When their paths cross months later, Nate discovers Angelina is still trapped, not in a basement but in the memories she can’t escape. As an ex-Chicago policeman, Nate knows all about being trapped—and getting un-trapped so he reaches out to help. Between the two of them, they have more than their fair share of problems. But that’s what makes the story exciting.
I have a philosophy when it comes to writing. If I find it boring so will the readers! That means I cut out the boring parts and focus on the action. I loved writing this story with all its twists and turns.
