Cache a Predator by M. Weidenbenner - Review

Cache a Predator

by, M. Weidenbenner Officer Brett Reed will do anything to gain custody of his five-year-old daughter, Quinn. But when the man-hating judge grants Brett’s drug-addicted ex-wife custody and slaps him with a protective order for losing his temper, he fears for Quinn’s safety. Who will protect her now? When Quinn is found abandoned on the streets, Brett’s worse nightmares turn toward a dark path. His daughter is placed in a temporary foster home until Child Protective Services can complete an assessment. It should only take a few days. But a lot can happen in a few days. Especially when there’s a deranged psychopath on the loose, someone who’s attacking pedophiles, someone who wants to protect children like Quinn, and someone who’s planting body parts in geocaching sites. Cache a Predator is a novel about a father’s love, justice, and the unhinged game of hide-the-cache.

My Review: Cache a Predator was a nice change of pace for me. It got me away from the romances that I usually read. There was some romance in this book, but it was mainly a thriller. I was reading as fast as I could to find out who the culprit was. I liked the little views into the psycho’s mind throughout the book. It was creepy and enlightening as to why they were doing what they were doing.

I loved Brett’s character. He is a strong man, a good cop, and an extremely dedicated father. I hated reading his struggle with getting Quinn back. He tried so hard to do the right things, but it always seemed that the system was against him. It made me so sorry for him, and for Quinn. Quinn is a sweet and incredibly smart and brave little girl. My heart broke for her. I like that even Quinn’s dog Max had a part. He was Quinn’s loyal protector.

I thought Sarah started off a little blinded by her past, especially since she is a psychologist who shouldn’t make judgments based on her personal feelings. As the book went on, that changed, and we actually got to watch her grow as a person. She is fiercely loyal to the children she helps protect, and I do love that about her.

This book is a wild and exciting ride. Towards the end I started to guess who the culprit was, but it didn’t take away from the book. I think readers will love this book. It is a gripping thriller, and a heartfelt story of a father trying to get his daughter back.
