carpe librum 

Carpe librum- seize the book!  What a great thought.

Welcome book lovers 

saturday scoop features a "scoop" on books- whether it's my review or other book related news you may have missed. 

Trust me when I say---YOU NEED THIS BOOK!

I read it in one day. It was unputdownable (yeah it should be a real word! LOL)

Although it felt really familiar (like a total sense- more than once of deja vu ), I say that in a good way. Plus Mr Adams injects a sense of the fresh here too. 

I will say the ending did lack,just a pinch though, a sense of closure/completeness.  

A kidnapped little girl locked in a stranger’s van. No help for miles. What would you do?
On her way to Utah to see her dying mother, college student Darby Thorne gets caught in a fierce blizzard in the mountains of Colorado. With the roads impassable, she’s forced to wait out the storm at a remote highway rest stop. Inside are some vending machines, a coffee maker, and four complete strangers.
Desperate to find a signal to call home, Darby goes back out into the storm . . . and makes a horrifying discovery. In the back of the van parked next to her car, a little girl is locked in an animal crate.
Who is the child? Why has she been taken? And how can Darby save her?
There is no cell phone reception, no telephone, and no way out. One of her fellow travelers is a kidnapper. But which one?
Trapped in an increasingly dangerous situation, with a child’s life and her own on the line, Darby must find a way to break the girl out of the van and escape.

But who can she trust?
