SummaryAmelie has always been a survivor, from losing her parents as a child in Paris to making it on her own in London. As she builds a life for herself, she is swept up into a glamorous lifestyle where she married the handsome billionaire Ned Hawthorne.

But then, Amelie wakes up in a pitch-black room, not knowing where she is. Why has she been taken? Who are her mysterious captors? And why does she soon feel safer here, imprisoned, than she had begun to feel with her husband Ned?

Review: This novel has been on my TBR shelf for quite a long time and this past weekend I promised myself I would read a book that has been lingering on the shelf. So I did and I am so glad. I read this book in one day and it sucked me right in.

Amelie is young and I think that is relevant to the storyline. If she had been a little older, she would have questioned more, not rushed into things without thinking them through, and then I realize we wouldn't have had a story. So, yes, it's good that she's young.

There are twists and turns in this story and I did not see them coming, which is unusual. Almost half way through I thought, this book is going to be really boring. We're only half way through and there just isn't much more to do with this kidnapping and then BAM! A twist and we're off galloping. As I said, this one kept my attention and didn't let go. Very clever.

Challenges for which this counts: 
  • Alphabet (Author)--P
  • Cloak and Dagger
