No Exit by Taylor Adams: Book Beginning


No Exit
No Exit 

Title: No Exit by Taylor Adams

Publication: January 15, 2019, William Morrow
Setting: College student Darby Thorne driving in the wintry, snowy mountains of Colorado

Book beginning:
5:19 p.m.
December 23 
"Screw you, Bing Crosby."
Darby Thorne was six miles up Backbone Pass when her windshield wiper broke, and that bass-baritone voice was just kicking into the second chorus. It was official: he'd be getting his white Christmas. He could shut up about it now. 
Page 56:

"Do you know the man who drives this van?"
"No."
"Did he take you?"
"Yeah."
"From your house?...."

About the book:
... four strangers, a blizzard, a kidnapped child, and a determined young woman desperate to outwit a vicious psychopath.

I thought this was a perfect setting for a thriller, especially since we are in the midst of winter!

Sounds great. I've been reading a lot of thrillers lately and this one sounds like it should be on my list. This week I am spotlighting a middle grade fantasy - The Storm Keeper's Island by Catherine Doyle - from my review stack. Happy reading!

What a great opening line! (Not that I have anything against Bing.) Hope you enjoy the read!

My Book Beginning this week is from the new suspense novel The Water Tower Club by BK Mayo

Funny that she cussed out Bing Crosby. Sometimes i swear in the name of my dead cat. Sorry. I know that is dumb. I'm highlighting quotes from Devotions
