About this ebook

Kidnapped for Christmas? 

Best-selling author Andrew Vitruvius knows that any publicity is good publicity. His agent tells him that often, so it must be true. In the run-up to Christmas, she excels herself - talking him into the craziest scheme yet: getting himself kidnapped, live on TV.

But when the plan goes ahead and Drew is unceremoniously thrown in the back of a van before being dragged to a hut in middle of the Brecon Beacons, it all starts to feel a little bit too real. 

Meanwhile, not far away, Lori France and her four-year-old niece Misty are settling in to spend the holidays away after unexpected events leave them without a place to stay. Little do they know they’re about to make a shocking discovery and experience a Christmas they’re not likely to forget …

A very good, well written book. A real page turner. The story had to turn out ok by the end but it kept you waiting and hoping. The characters were real, and Lori in particular came over as someone you would like in real life. I particularly liked the unusual diary firmat it was written in. Worked really well. Looking for Evonne other books.

I loved this story! The characters were unusual, especially the leading character who was an action man famous author. What could he possibly have in common with an ordinary woman who had to spend Christmas looking after her niece? As it turns out - plenty! The story was totally engaging and kept you interested with some unexpected twists and turns. Wonderful characters who you wanted to learn more about and see what would happen to them. A perfect read for a cold winter evening.

Drew Vitruvius is a best-selling writer of action novels. To make his writing as authentic as possible he turns himself into a Bear Grylls type character, acting out the hero’s part during dangerous scenes. When his agent asks him to join a selection of celebrities who are willing to ‘kidnapped’ and ransomed back for charity he has misgivings but eventually accepts. But the fictitious kidnap goes wrong and he finds himself chained in a shed in the middle of a wood. Wannabe author Lori France’s house is a building site after recent flood damage. Plans to work her way around spending Christmas in the upheaval are thrown into chaos, when her selfish movie star sister Skylark dumps small daughter Misti on her in order to jet of with her latest boyfriend. Luckily she’s thrown a lifeline by one of the builders: a stay in his grandmother’s empty barn conversion in the Brecon Beacons. It’s on a walk in the woods one afternoon that Lori and Misti come across a shed containing a dishevelled stranger. I absolutely loved this story. The romance between Drew and Lori developed at a good pace through the book. There were a lot of teasing moments but it was great when they eventually got together. Then there was drama. Drew’s celebrity kidnap had gone wrong. Who wanted him dead? Christmas at the barn conversion was quite magical. Misti was really cute. She didn’t annoy as some child characters often do - as Drew commented ‘4 going on 40’! After the highs of course there had to be lows, when Drew left Lori determined to find out who wanted him killed. Do they eventually find each other again? Well you need to read the book to find out. I really enjoyed the whole journey Evonne Wareham took me on - it’s well worth every one of the five stars I’ve given it.
