Mia is the once trouble-causing daughter of Judge James Dennett. Although she’s turned her life around, her father still sees her as she once was; someone he was constantly having to cover for. Colin Thatcher is sent to abduct Mia for ransom, but when the time comes, he can’t turn her over. He decides to keep her in a remote cabin until he can figure something out

This book was compared to Gone Girl so I knew I needed to read it. It definitely had me on my toes and I couldn’t put it down. I really enjoyed being able to hear from each of the main characters and not just one single one. I also liked the fact that you didn’t read anything from Mia’s POV until the very end. There was a big reveal at the end but I had that part figured out about half way through the book. Even then, it didn’t make me want to stop reading. If anything, it made me want to read faster so that I could figure out exactly how it would all wrap up.

The only complaint I had really was that it was hard to figure out when another character was speaking. It took a few moments to realize that I was in another characters head, so I’d have to go back and reread what I’d just read. That could have been because it was an ARC that I was reading from. They might have added some kind of divider in the final copy of the book. I hope so.

I definitely enjoyed this book and look forward to any other titles that Kubica will release in the future.
