Goodreads Summary: Gabie drives a Mini Cooper. She also works part time as a delivery girl at Pete’s Pizza. One night, Kayla—another delivery girl—goes missing. To her horror, Gabie learns that the supposed kidnapper had asked if the girl in the Mini Cooper was working that night. Gabie can’t move beyond the fact that Kayla’s fate was really meant for her, and she becomes obsessed with finding Kayla. She teams up with Drew, who also works at Pete’s. Together, they set out to prove that Kayla isn’t dead—and to find her before she is.
My Views: Phew this was a fast read, just a quick couple of hours and it’s devoured. I really liked this book.
Though it’s no secret how much I love thrillers, this one went a step ahead. All the police documents, medical forms and interviews made it more interesting.
This isn’t much of a mystery, it’s a fast paced thriller that keeps you on the edge and makes you want to read until it finished. So I’m glad I started reading it in the evening and could sleep peacefully by the time night arrived.
The various POVs work well for this book and I have begun to appreciate books that are written this way. So much better to know what’s going inside everyone’s head and it keeps things clear instead of all mixed up.
In all, if you are looking for a fast-paced thriller, this is a good choice.
