BLURB: A thriller about four strangers, a blizzard, a kidnapped child, and a determined young woman desperate to unmask and outwit a vicious psychopath⁣

A kidnapped little girl locked in a stranger’s van. No help for miles. What would you do?⁣

On her way to Utah to see her dying mother, college student Darby Thorne gets caught in a fierce blizzard in the mountains of Colorado. With the roads impassable, she’s forced to wait out the storm at a remote highway rest stop. Inside are some vending machines, a coffee maker, and four complete strangers.⁣

Desperate to find a signal to call home, Darby goes back out into the storm . . . and makes a horrifying discovery. In the back of the van parked next to her car, a little girl is locked in an animal crate.⁣

Who is the child? Why has she been taken? And how can Darby save her?⁣

There is no cell phone reception, no telephone, and no way out. One of her fellow travelers is a kidnapper. But which one?⁣

Trapped in an increasingly dangerous situation, with a child’s life and her own on the line, Darby must find a way to break the girl out of the van and escape.⁣

But who can she trust?⁣

“The difference between a hero and a victim? Timing.”⁣

This is a fast paced thriller that you can read in one sitting. The first chapter was able to draw me in to the plot and i already had a vague idea of how it was all going to turn out. Turns out I was wrong.⁣

Darby is the type of character every MC ought to be like. Strong, determined, emotional. I love how each character was introduced and slowly developed.⁣ From the beginning, we understand Darby is facing a lot of personal problems, trying to make peace with her mom. it started as predictable as ever, but slowly turned into an unthinkable plot twist! Like, i was thinking, okay, Darby is gonna fall for that guy at the centre, and when she asked for his help, I said, well, that’s it. But NO! Everything changed from there. We got to see more characters with their own demons, and Jay comes along. I love Jay and how she’s able to understand what is at stake even at her age.⁣

Slowly, the plot unveils a dark and mysterious atmosphere, building up perfectly.⁣
This is undeniably an action packed thriller, with a good sense of humour and some of the best dialogues.😍⁣
