Snatching Dianna (Feisty Lawyers) by Seelie Kay
This is book one in the Feisty Lawyers series. It is a suspenseful, dramatic novella. Dianna Murphy has been kidnapped and it’s up to secret agents Janet MacLachlan and Cade Matthews to bring her home and take down the slave trafficking ring. The book reminded me of the series Code Raven by Lynda Fuller. Agents and police setting up covert operations to save innocent women and make the world a better place.
The playful banter between the characters lightened the story. Human trafficking is a heavy topic so this was a good addition. Some of their conversations seemed to allude to there being a prior book but I think the author was trying to show that the characters had history together. Being such a short book, I couldn’t really invest myself with any of the characters therefore there was no real connection.
My only issue with the story was the few “sexcapades”. I love sex scenes in a book but these were weird and random and had nothing to do with the story. They could have been left out completely and it wouldn’t have changed anything.. Had the book been longer and we had more in depth knowledge of these relationships maybe it would have worked better.
Other than that, I think the story was interesting and it was a good introduction to the characters. The whole secret agency will lead to some intriguing storylines for future books. I’m interested to see what will happen in book two.
