Hello booknerds! Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for No Exit by Taylor Adams.
Genre: Mystery & Thrillers
Publisher: Joffe Books
Publication Date: July 1, 2017
My Rating: ❤❤❤❤ 1/2 (4.5 out of 5)
A kidnapped little girl locked in a stranger’s van. No help for miles. What would you do?
Darby Thorne is a college student stranded by a blizzard at a highway rest stop in the middle of nowhere. She’s on the way home to see her sick mother. She’ll have to spend the night in the rest stop with four complete strangers. Then she stumbles across a little girl locked inside one of their parked cars.
There is no cell phone reception, no telephone, no way out because of the snow, and she doesn’t know which one of the other travelers is the kidnapper.
Full of shocking twists and turns, this beautifully written novel will have you on the edge of your seat.
Perfect for fans of Gillian Flynn, Paula Hawkins, or Stephen King.
Who is the little girl? Why has she been taken? And how can Darby save her?
TAYLOR is the author of EYESHOT and OUR LAST NIGHT
What would you do if you saw a little girl trapped in a van?
This book had my heart racing and palms sweaty. If I didn’t require sleep, I wouldn’t have put it down.
It was incredibly fast paced and had me hooked from the start, when Darby Thorne gets stuck in a storm and has to pull over at a rest stop. From then on, Darby thinks she sees a child trapped in a van. But with no cell reception, she is stranded with 4 stranded with 4 strangers – one being the kidnapper.
The only reason I deducted half a star (or heart I should say), was because I had predicted one of the suspects early on.
I loved the character build up and scenery. It was like something you would see in a horror movie.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes thrillers.
