Title: A Deadly Blessing
Author: Kathy Bennett
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

The critically ill daughter of the governor of California has been kidnapped. LAPD Detective Maddie Divine is assigned to find her before it’s too late. But this high-profile case comes with secrets on every side: cops, politicians, even the innocent.

 Maddie Divine: Her marriage hangs by a thread, her SWAT-officer husband has lost it, and almost as bad, she can’t trust her detective partner. 

 Travis Divine: After the death of a SWAT teammate, he’s a shell of the man he used to be. He’s lost touch with his work, his wife and occasionally even reality. Can he regain the warrior mentality needed to support Maddie and do his job?

 Preston Truesdale: The California governor’s daughter has gone missing, and so has her only bone marrow donor. Is it coincidence or something more sinister? 

 Pilar Luna: The mayor of Los Angeles is a media favorite, and she plays Preston like a Vegas pro would play a Midwestern farmboy…all in hopes of reaching the White House. Will she hit the jackpot? 

 Tiffany Truesdale: The brainiac teenager evaded her security team to spend a night on the town with her girlfriends, but can she outwit the man who kidnapped her before time runs out? 

 A Deadly Blessing is a lightning-paced story of suspense that will keep readers on edge from beginning to end

A Deadly Blessing begins when Maddie and her partner are called in to help find the Governor's missing daughter. This is a high profile case that needs to be kept out of the press, and Maddie and her partner are the only ones who work missing persons so it's up to them to find her. Not only does Maddie have to deal with this major case, but she and her husband are on rock ground right now due to things that have happened in the last year. And now they aren't sure what to do now. 

 This book is told from many different people's point of views. It really makes the story interesting seeing it from so many people's point of views. But I have to say it wasn't that great either. It wasn't bad but not great. I thought over all it was okay. My main thing I didn't like was the fact that I didn't really feel a whole lot of emotion coming from Maddie. Even in the end when something bad happened it seemed she really didn't exert to much emotion over it. I have to say my favorite character was Maddie's husband Travis. He was a nice guy who wanted to get his wife back, and make things right in his world. So I have to say I wasn't overly impressed with how the book ended either. The book has lots of mystery, suspense, and some drama. Even a major sad part as well.
