Kelsey has lived a very sheltered and fear-filled life because of her mother. Kelsey’s mom survived a kidnapping and so she has passed on her fears to her daughter and taught Kelsey how to protect herself. Kelsey has always believed her mom is just paranoid, but when Kelsey’s mother goes missing and Kelsey is attacked in her home, the truth comes to light.
This is a fun, fast suspense novel. I liked the main character and there is a little bit of romance and mystery throughout. The violence is not gruesome, but is pretty intense.
