Held captive for eight years, Lily has grown from a teenager to an adult in a small basement prison. Her daughter, Sky, has been captive her whole life. but one day their captor leaves the dead bolt unlocked.

This is what happens next …

…to Lily, to her twin sister, to her mother, to her daughter… and to her captor.”


This was a really interesting read for me. Before this book, I had never read a crime thriller before, let alone any sort of thriller.

At first wasn’t so sure what to make of it just from the synopsis. However, when I started reading, my whole opinion changed.

I really enjoyed this story. I think it was sort of fascinating to see what it is like for a person who has been kidnapped and held hostage. To see their side of the story and how they try escape from their prison.

I loved the bond between Lily and her twin sister Abby. I think it’s a great example of how I feel some sibling relationships should go. I was really cool to see their relationship develop over the course of the book. From Lily coming home after escaping her kidnapper to dealing with Abby’s pregnancy with Lily’s former boyfriend to Abby getting arrested at the ending of the book for killing Lily’s former kidnapper.

Rick, who was Lily’s kidnapper, was a character that I wished would just die all ready. I kept waiting the entire book before it finally happened. He just was an absolute jerk to Lily. Yes, he did care for Sky but that doesn’t even make what he did to Lily acceptable.

I was very impressed by this book. I would have never have guessed that this was the author’s debut novel. The writing was fantastic. The plot was great. Everything was done perfectly. The only sort of negative comment I have to say about this book was that I felt that the plot just dragged a little after Rick was killed. Besides that I enjoyed everything else in the book and I hope that the author decides to write more books in the future because I would love to read more by her.
