I found this to be a very fast paced story! For a suspense novel, I found the discovery of who the villain was a bit quick. There needed to be more detective work. I felt like overall, the story needed more action. I was super impressed with all the people involved in bringing Dianna home. The teamwork and collaboration of the different jurisdictions was awesome. The characters are intelligent and extremely likable! Love the cover!! Its what grabbed my attention! This is a new to me author and I’m definitely going to see what else she has to offer! Overall, 4 star read!
Snatching Dianna by Seelie Kay a four-star read you will want to snatch. This is the first novel in the Feisty Lawyers series and I for one can’t wait for the next one. This was a quick and fast paced story that will suck you in and enthral you, I only gave it four stars as there was a couple of bits that I couldn’t get, and I could have read more pages. Janet MacLaclan and Kade Mathews are a great couple and they just have this charisma about them you would help them like the others do. There is a dark story to this, but its done well and shows promise for a great series.

Snatching Dianna ( Feisty Lawyer Book 1) by Seelie Kay is a mystery suspense book that grabbed my attention from the beginning and kept it till the end. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough I had to know what happens next at times I was on the edge of my seat. When Dianna (a law student) doesn’t show up to a event with her roommate. ALaw Professor Janet MacLachlan begins looking for clues to see if she was taken or not. One thing leads to another and she finds herself looking into a slave trafficking cartel. Will Dianna be found? I highly recommend reading this Book especially if you want to know what happens. I look forward to reading more from this Author.

WOW!!! This is only the beginning in this series. What a great start for this suspenseful story.
Dianna Murphy is kidnapped on her morning run. Her roommate tries to report it. But the law says she has to wait 24 hours, because Dianna is an adult. She is strong, brave and will not let these people make her weak. That is exactly where this storyline picks up. I was drawn into the very first paragraph. It continues at a running pace. Seelie Kay has really written a spectacular story. So real in today’s everyday life. I feel she has really gone out and done her research on human trafficking. For that alone, makes this suspenseful story a must read!. That is really all I can say without giving too much of the story away. I am looking forward to see where she will take this series. Not for those under 18 due to adult content. I’m looking for more Seelie Kay!
Snatching Dianna by Seelie Kay is the first book of the Feisty Lawyers series. The story’s main characters are Law Professor Janet MacLachlan and her husband secret agent Cade Matthews. They are on the hunt for a missing law student Dianna Murphy before she disappears forever. They bring on a team of experts to help them find Dianna.
This was a quick read with lots of suspense. I enjoyed that the tension was broken up at times with some good wit. Because of the length, there is a lot of room to grow and continue the series. The characters are interesting and seem to have a lot of backstories. I enjoyed the story overall and look forward to reading more in the series.

Snatching Dianna (Feisty Lawyers #1) by Seelie Kay
4 out of 5 stars
Snatching Dianna is the first book in the Feisty Lawyer series written by Seelie Kay and it’s the first book that I have read by this author. This book isn’t really my kind of reading but I enjoyed this short story. This story contains intrigue, suspense, humor, action, adventure, danger, drama, and some romance.
Dianna Murphy a Milwaukee law student has been kidnapped. Her roommate reports her missing, but unfortunately, without witnesses and solid evidence, all the police really know is that she is missing.
In steps in Law Professor Janet MacLachlan, a former covert agent, she discovers a single clue, one that points to a taking by a slave trafficking cartel. In a race against time, Janet recruits her husband, secret agent Cade Matthews, small-town Police Chief David Manders and his wife, criminal defense attorney Julianna Constant, and other law students to uncover the truth.
Can they prove that Dianna was taken against her will? Will she be lost forever if they can’t find any-more clues about her disappearance?
The characters are great and well written, the plot was good. This book was easy to read. I recommend this book.

Snatching Dianna (Feisty Lawyers Book 1) By Seelie Kay. While on the short side it’s still a very good suspense story. Once I started I couldn’t put it down. The characters are complex and the storyline is well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking anything. The author just has this way of capturing readers attention and making them crawl inside the story. It’s a story with great suspense and kept me on my toes. I’m excited to read more from this author. I’m giving this book a five star review and highly recommend it to anyone.
Snatching Dianna by Seelie Kay is the first book in the Feisty Lawyers series. This is the first book I have had the pleasure reading by Ms. Kay so I wasn’t sure what to expect with her style and how she builds her characters and was anxious to see what I would be getting with this story. Let me tell you what I got.
I got a story about love, romance, “alone time” and there was the whole missing law student thing which brought in the hot alpha Federal Agents and local Police Officers.
I was a little confused by the focal point in the beginning but as the story progressed it was clear to me where this series will be going. My confusion didn’t cause me enough distraction to take away from the book.
I have book two in my kindle and looking forward to getting it read.
Snatching Dianna, Feisty Lawyers Series, by Seelie Kay
Snatching Dianna was an interesting and action packed novel. The storyline was easy to follow and moved quickly. It was fitting, too, how important it was to locate a missing person in a certain amount of time. The individuals that made up the primary characters of the novel consisted of an interesting mix including lawyers, law students, special agents, and police. I loved how strong Dianna remained in the face of danger and handled being taken. She never gave up hope. There was also a hint of steamy romance mixed in. I look forward to reading more in this series.
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.
