  1. What an intense opening! As a mother, I can only imagine the fear going through her mind. This sounds like a good one. I've only read one Karin Slaughter book. I liked it, although didn't love it. I'd like to try something else by her.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Sounds intriguing. I love a good thriller. This week I am spotlighting Stolen Things by R. H. Herron from my review stack. Happy reading!

  3. Ohh, sounds very interesting! I haven't read this author yet but i know shes very popular. I need to look into this. :)

  4. I havent read anything by this author, but this seems like an interesting book.

  5. I love Slaughter, but gotta start this one at book 1. I've read others by her that I loved though. :-) Happy weekend!


I appreciate your comments and thoughts...
