really liked it
Read from December 10, 2012 to January 27, 2013

There is an attempted robbery at the bank and Joe, one of the robbers, is the mouthpiece. Emilie, the bank manager, is kept separate from the others by who will later be dubbed "the Taker". Nathan is the hostage negotiator. The Taker eventually escapes into the tunnels that were built under the bank years ago and continues to stalk Emilie.

Emilie doesn't feel safe and she doesn't have a lot of confidence that the police will be able to catch the Taker. She has not family for support and Nathan are drawn to each other. Besides Nathan, she doesn't know who to trust. Are there insiders in the bank? Will the police find the Taker or will Emilie have to take matters into her own hands and find him herself?

This is the first book I've read by this author and I enjoyed it. I liked the writing style. It was well-paced and interesting ... I wanted to keep reading to see what was going to happen next.

I liked that there were different elements in the story in addition to the kidnapping including Emilie's lack of relationship with her mother (and why) and Nathan's guilt over the death of his uncle many years ago (and that his dad blamed him) so we get to know more about them.

We know who the kidnapper is from the beginning but it's not 'til the end that it's confirmed why.

I'd like to read others by this author.

Stacy Green Teena,

Thank you so much for your review! I'm so glad you enjoyed the book so well. Just wanted to clarify one thing: I'm not actually donating proceeds from book sales. I'm running a Rafflecopter until the end of February, and all entrants will qualify to win the grand prize, which is a $100 donation from me, in the winner's name, to the homeless charity of their choice. Does that makes sense, lol? It might be splitting hairs, but I want to make sure I cleared that up.

Thank you again for the great review!
