The sudden appearance of a man’s booted feet had Addis snapping her mouth shut. Screaming, she kicked out at the tall, muscular guy as he dragged her from beneath the desk…
It was a scene from a horror movie; Gabriel Kensington and his wife Lydia found, brutally slain in their luxurious home in New Mexico. The frantic, whispered phone call from their teenage daughter Addis, spending the evening with best friend Emerson, quickly alerts the authorities to the killings – and worse, that the killer is still inside the house.
But when detective Alyssa Wyatt and the squad appear at the house, the unthinkable has happened – the girls are nowhere to be found.
Waking up in a dilapidated cabin, nestled high in the woods north of Albuquerque, the girls find themselves at the mercy of a brutal stranger who could take their life at any moment. While they fight for survival, it’s up to Alyssa Wyatt and her partner Cord to discover just why the Kensingtons have been targeted – and fast.
Because for Addis and Emerson, solving this mystery might just mean the difference between survival – or an unthinkable death…
Alone In The Woods has to have been one of my most anticipated reads. I absolutely love this series and the previous two books have been absolutely fantastic. It has been well worth the wait for the newest addition that’s for sure.
A new book and a new case for Alyssa. What an adrenaline rush of a read it turned out to be. So much is riding on Alyssa, Cord and their team finding out who is behind the double killing. I ended up reading this in two sittings as it was such a compulsive read and with every new revelation, I was desperate for more. We flick between Alyssa working on the case as well as the girls who have been taken whose future looks uncertain to say the least. This is an author who really knows how to get the characters feelings and emotions across to her readers. It had me racing through the pages for that all important conclusion.
Wowzers this was one thrill of a read. The twists knocked me sideways of which the final one nearly had me flying up off my chair in shock. This is one seriously addictive series and if you haven’t discovered it for yourself yet, well I’m telling you now, if you love crime thrillers, you need to dive straight into these books. My only problem now is the agonising wait until the next book!
