A nail-biting, on the edge of your seat at all times, scared to death of every noise that you hear read! ~ Rosalie Belle, Guilty Pleasures
It’s high summer in the Mojave Desert, and Kristine Rush and her fiancé, Daniel, are en route from Las Vegas to Lake Arrowhead, California, for the July Fourth holiday weekend. But when Daniel is abducted from a desolate rest stop, Kristine is forced to choose: return home unharmed, but never to see her fiancé again, or plunge forward into the searing desert to find him…where a killer lies in wait.
Review copy provided for an honest review
Swerve was a book that kept me up well past my bedtime reading. Every creak and noise in my house, that is probably there every night, morphed into some killer on the loose ready to attack me. That’s what this book does to you. It is the kind of thriller that grabs a hold of you won’t let go.
Kristine and her fiancée, Daniel, are on a road trip to visit his family. While stopping at a closed down rest stop to change clothes, Kristine is attacked by an unknown man with a knife and Daniel disappears. And this is all in the first two chapters! The thing that I loved the most is the almost Scavenger Hunt type that Kristine goes on to try to stay alive. This book has so many moments where you feel that it “has to be the end”! Kristine is a chick that just perseveres through absolutely everything. Every time you think, yep, her luck has run out (even though you know not because there are plenty of pages left in the book), she truly battles through and shows herself as the amazing heroine she is. Turning every page, something new happens that scares the t-total mess out of readers. If you don’t want a book that will keep you awake for nights on end, this isn’t the one for you!
