It's been two years since Ren left for Mexico on his mission and Ida Mae, Tansy and Arlette are thrilled to be able to go pick him up from the mission field. And they are planning on making a real vacation of it, by visiting several of the tourist areas in Mexico...hello, Cancun! As she's doing her packing, Ida Mae is watching the news reports of the escaped antiquities thief Manuel Gonzales, just because it's interesting and something to do. But she doesn't realize that she's about to come face to face with the escaped prisoner, in fact, he's going to kidnap her and try to convince her of his innocence. None of the women is sure what to think of Manuel, but they decide to believe him and go along with his plan to lure the man that Manuel claims is the real thief out into the open. Unfortunately, their plan backfires and soon someone is taking shots at Ida Mae, Tansy and Arlette. Then the friends are kidnapped for the second time, will the friends be able to escape with their lives, or will this adventure be the end of the line for some of them?
These books are so fun! I love Ida Mae, Arlette and Tansy. I love how they all have their own personalities and quirks. These women make me laugh, they always know just how to get themselves in far deeper trouble than they have previously been in. And of course, they always get tricked by the real thief. I really enjoyed how the areas in Mexico that I've never been to came alive for me in Tristi's story. And I really enjoyed the surprise at the end. I can't wait to be able to read the next book in this series, "Till Death Do Us Part."
