it was ok

This was a recommendation from a good friend. The protagonist is basically in constant hiding as in a sort of witness protection because she and her twin were abducted as children and held for ransom. Her sister died. The man who took them has hunted her since childhood, leaving notes and presents on holidays and birthdays. Her brother works for the FBI or something, so they have a ton of secret service men at their disposal all the time. A little into the book you learn that she is an ambassador's daughter, which explains all the special attention. She is also a gifted artist, a children's book author and illustrator, and a believer in Jesus. Of course, she's also wealthy if not rich. She gets stuck on the elevator with an ex-pro football player whose office is in the same downtown Chicago building hers are in and the stage is set for romance because she has a very bad panic attack/flashback to her days of being held hostage by her abductor.

I read this book while in the hospital and enjoyed having something else to think about, but I can't say it was a life-changer. This is a Christian Romance, and everything went well for everyone: 1. Private jets when needed. 2. Instant, fresh, change of clothes on demand. 3. Fancy surprise wedding at the end of the book.

It was hard to believe, but I do appreciate that it didn't trash talk and wasn't violent.
