Be Careful Who You Kidnap
From the Introduction:
Getting kidnapped on a visit to Seattle wasn’t in Remy Brandt’s agenda. A tightly-wound L.A. entertainment attorney, Remy has meetings to take and orders to give, but the three knucklehead environmentalists who snatch her have other plans. Remy wakes up in the middle of a national forest, resting on a platform strung between the branches of a gigantic cedar tree. The kidnappers demand that her hedgefund-manager father deed over his old growth timber holdings. Remy demands a triple-espresso and a bowl of fresh raspberries. It gets worse. Her father is dodging subpoenas for insider trading and can’t be reached. Her boyfriend, left for dead by the kidnappers, can’t get the FBI interested because at age 16, Remy faked her own kidnapping, and ran off with the pool boy. It’s up to the boyfriend, an ex-cop with a short temper, to find her. The kidnappers should be worried about him… they should be even more worried about Remy.
