Review - Traces of Kara

Kara Knight can't wait to leave her hometown for the promise of nursing school and a fresh start on her future--leaving behind an over protective mother, a broken heart and painful memories. However, twenty-five miles away, the brother she doesn't know is determined to be reunited with the sister he cannot forget.

Kara is abducted and thrown into her obsessive captor's delusional world. As the past she thought she knew unravels around her, Kara struggles to make sense of the memories that come creeping back, threatening her sanity and her safety. Meanwhile, Kara's mother races against time to save the daughter she fears she will lose when a long-held secret is revealed. The hours tick away as Roland plays out his plan--to take Kara with him into death at the exact moment of their birth, never to be separated again.

TRACES OF KARA is an action packed, pulse pounding psychological thriller/suspense novel that features a determined killer who slowly loses his grip on reality as his carefully detailed plan starts to fall apart and a heroine determined to move forward with her life who now must reconcile everything she believed to be true about her family with the reality of their tragic past

My review:

This was a great suspense.  It is action packed and keeps you on your toes throughout.  Its hard to give too many details without spoilers, but I will say what I can to hopefully try to get you to read it yourself.

Kara is trying to get out of her hometown to pursue her dream of going to nursing school.  She has quite a few things to get away from including a cheating ex.  Her mother really just wants her to be happy but their levels of communication can have issues at times.

One day while at work in the local plant she is abducted by a man she does not know.  This starts a chain of events that lead to her remember things from when she was a child and fighting back to try to find a way out of her captivity while finding out the truth in her mixed up memories.

This is a well-written suspense story with strong psychological issues.  It take place at a good pace and you fight along with Kara to figure out what is going on and who this man really is.  If you are looking for a good suspense I highly recommend you pick this one up.
