When She’s Gone: A Thriller
Ara Zuyev is the bodyguard for Samantha Harper, the step-daughter of a billionaire businessman. Ara has a lot of secrets, many of which come to light when Sam is kidnapped. Luke Patrick of the FBI is called in to investigate, and he immediately suspects Ara. Now Ara has to prove her innocence to him and race the clock to find Sam before it’s too late. Ara discovers you can’t keep your past hidden for long in When She’s Gone.
It is always nice to see a female lead saving the day, but I found this book to be anticlimactic. Each chapter turns out the way you think it will, making it fairly predictable and not much of a thriller. All the women in this book seem to be ruled by emotions, which they try to fight, but apparently it is not possible when you are a woman. I found that to be a little bit insulting, but maybe my emotions are just getting the best of me. This definitely wasn’t the worst book I’ve ever read; however, I don’t think I would read it again.
