Inescapable —The Beginning by Madge H Gressley is a suspenseful romance with strong elements of espionage, murder, and human trafficking. Brad Daniels, the man Darcey Callahan loves more than life itself, has been called back to Peru to deal with a dangerous situation in his job. Believing him to be missing when she fails to get information about him, Darcey sets out to find Brad, but something terrible happens. She is in a car accident and wakes up without memory. What makes matters worse is that she finds herself in the hands of people who will hold her captive in Morocco while waiting to sell her. When Brad finally comes to rescue her, will she recognize him and what can he do to win her trust and make her believe he is the man she loves deeply?
This is a beautiful story with a strong story line, great prose and well-crafted characters. The author wastes no time introducing the conflict, the fact that Darcey can’t live without knowing where Brad is. Madge H Gressley introduces strong elements into the plot and the peak is when Darcey wakes up from an accident with memory loss and in the hands of the very bad guys. The reader wants to know what happens next as they turn from page to page, spurred on by the suspense created by the relevant shifts in points of view. The cunning in-depth plot, the balance in writing, and strength of character development are elements that make Inescapable —The Beginning an enjoyable read. Darcey is my favorite character and I enjoyed how her humanity and vulnerability are explored in the narrative.
