Review: Traces of Kara by Melissa Foster

Traces of Kara by Melissa Foster
Pages: 178 
Format: eARC 
Buy the Book:Amazon  

Goodreads:  Kara Knight can't wait to leave her hometown for the promise of nursing school and a fresh start on her future--leaving behind an over protective mother, a broken heart and painful memories. However, twenty-five miles away, the brother she doesn't know is determined to be reunited with the sister he cannot forget. 

Kara is abducted and thrown into her obsessive captor's delusional world. As the past she thought she knew unravels around her, Kara struggles to make sense of the memories that come creeping back, threatening her sanity and her safety. Meanwhile, Kara's mother races against time to save the daughter she fears she will lose when a long-held secret is revealed. The hours tick away as Roland plays out his plan--to take Kara with him into death at the exact moment of their birth, never to be separated again. 

Kritters Thoughts:  Are you looking for an intense read that won't let you up until the last page?  Then you need to go find this book.  Quite the intense trip that does not let up until there are 5 pages left to flip.  Kara is kidnapped from her job in a power plant that is in the midst of being shut down and in this maze of a plant, an old acquaintance has decided that they should die together.

As this is definitely a thriller, I can't divulge too much or it would completely ruin the reading experience.  A thrill ride with psycho crazies, family secrets and a hunter - this book is not for the faint of heart and is a little different read than others that Melissa Foster has published.

I enjoyed the book, but found the intensity to be exhausting and was definitely ready for the resolution when it arrived.  If you are an intense reader, this one is for you.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
