4.25*
If you’ve ever been in a corporate setting, you may be familiar with this. The dreaded yet mandatory work event. You know…one of those sleeper, team building exercises guaranteed to leave you rolling your eyes?🙄🙄
Okay, so what if it involves an escape room? Sounds like fun right!? You bet! Right up to the exact moment you realize…this may no longer be a game!

Sara Hall finally landed her dream job on Wall Street. After struggling to pay rent and put food on the table she’s finally managed to make it big. Among the perks, a six figure income as her starting salary. Little did she realize her job would soon become her life...maybe even destroying her in the process.
This book has it all! A gripping and suspenseful thriller that will keep you flipping furiously through the pages. I was completely caught up in Sarah’s life and that of her highly successful but ruthless workmates.

It’s clever, it’s ingenious and oh so addictive! If you’re on the look-out for a great summer thriller look no further! This is the book for you!

A buddy read with Susanne!🌸

Holly  B I thought this was super fun! Great review 💕🌹


NZLisaM Fantastic review, Kaceey. Hate those team building exercises, and the idea of an escape room (without the terror) sounds even worse.


message 12: by Jaline (new)

Jaline Fabulous review, Kaceey! What amazes me is that so very few people have ever enjoyed those team building weekends (or seminars, or whatever) - and yet, they seem to stick like glue to the majority of companies' To-Do lists. This sounds like a way to maybe exorcise those times from my own memory. 😄

Angela M Terrific review, Kaceey. I participated in many team building exercises, but none involved an escape room 😳
