CAUGHT IN THE ACT
Sorenson’s novel is both compelling and sensual, set on the border of Mexico and addressing both sides of illegal immigration and drug trafficking. The plot stays on point and the characters all weave together smoothly while keeping the reader rapidly turning pages.
Kari Strauss is the owner of a successful boutique specializing in Latin American crafts. Weekly trips across the border to Mexico have given her opportunity to meet many people who need her help, and one in particular who she breaks the law for. Sneaking a woman across the border lands Kari in trouble, but that’s just the beginning. A handsome border agent, a sister who is in deep with a drug cartel and her new friend all lead her to make dangerous choices and tempt her to let her desires run wild. (BANTAM, Mar., 400 pp., $7.99)
