Policing is a challenging job that can test your endurance and patience to the limits. It is a continual battle between law-enforcers and law-breakers. Professional duties apart, myriad personal problems too need to be attended to.

Janice Cantore's Abducted, the second in the Pacific Coast Justice series, published by Tyndale, deals with the personal and professional duties of the Las Playas police officer Carly Edwards, who must always strive to be one step ahead.

Carly Edwards is also in a complicated relationship with her ex-husband, Nick. But her new found faith enabled her to try mending things with him. When it appears that the relationship was slowly improving, Nick started to drift apart again, hurting Carly.

Carly's partner in the police force is Joe King who adores his four-month-old baby. Joe's wife Christy suffers from a mysterious illness and is admitted into the hospital where their baby goes missing. Carly has to act, and act fast. Will she be able to save the baby? As she pursued every possible lead, her strength and faith is pushed to the limits.

Abducted is offers lots of twists, turns and surprises to delight and satisfy action and intrigue fans. It keeps one guessing. Who kidnapped the baby? Why? It is a well-written book with an intriguing and swift-flowing plot and engaging characters.

Though the book tends to be preachy at times, it is understandable as the enthusiasm and joy of Carly in her new-found faith flows all throughout the book. Author Janice Cantore masterfully takes us on a ride that lovers of Christian fiction will truly cherish.
