It’s a surprise vacation and she’d excited, though she somewhat wonders where her life went. When they get there, she has fantasy’s from the romance novels she edits until she goes running the next morning and is kidnapped.

The writing is good, and builds some suspense. We only see her point of view, captured in a house, not speaking the language, with another captive there as well, the man she thinks helped get her kidnapped. Who should she trust? What’s going on? It’s a mystery.

She learned about a small fortune after she escapes. Her lineage goes back to a Swiss pharmaceutical company that she held stock in through an inheritance. She manages to get to Switzerland and learns about her husband’s problems with the people that kidnapped her, and also that she’s worth millions.

It’s not a great ending, but it was a fun book to read.
