Chaos shatters Amanda Sloane’s controlled world when she trades Chicago courtrooms and designer suits for sweat-soaked ventures into the Yucatan to find her missing sister. She searches old haunts and uninhabited lands, and learns to trust no one. Racing against time, Amanda faces death threats, deceptions, and ghosts from her past. Will she escape paradise?

Book One in the Trapped Trilogy

Crackerjack divorce attorney Amanda Sloane spends her life defending the soon-to-be-ex-wives of Chicago’s upper crust, but her orderly world crumbles when her estranged father persuades her to help search for Rebecca Adams, the half-sister she’s resented for thirty years.

Amanda drags along computer-geek-turned-attorney Chad Cooper, and together they chase across the Yucatan, pursuing an ever-changing string of leads. The duo encounters treacherous alliances, attacks on their associates, and a deadline for a hefty ransom.

Amanda digs up more than clues when their search collides with the past she believed long buried. Old memories chip away at pretenses, threatening to crush Amanda’s carefully constructed life.

Time is running out. When the bullets start to fly, Amanda and Chad wonder: who will survive Cancun?

TOURIST TRAPPED takes the reader on a tropical adventure: bone-white Caribbean beaches, jewel-toned waters, and picturesque islands. But the stunning beauty cannot belie the fact that Rebecca and her husband have vanished. While Amanda and Chad hunt for the kidnapped couple, they stumble onto an international conspiracy that reaches all the way back to Chicago—and may cost Amanda and Chad far more than a ransom.

TOURIST TRAPPED is a gripping thriller that combines psychological suspense with plenty of action and family angst. No one escapes Cancun unscathed.
