The Kidnapping of Sarah Easton

Screen Shot 2021-10-09 at 1.38.23 PM.png

The morning it happened, Sarah thought little of the slight change in plans. By evening, she realizes the result of that decision: she is trapped in a remote cabin, where her captors force her to record a ransom demand aimed at her wealthy father. As the countdown to the deadline begins and Sarah looks for ways to escape her confine, she is unaware that a far more sinister danger lurks unseen as various parties plot and scheme their way to the ransom. With the clock ticking toward the deadline and these plots beginning to coalesce, Sarah realizes what's at stake is far more than money.

Fiction - Suspense/Crime/Thriller

“Right. I guess now seems like the perfect transition into the ground rules. They are simple. First, understand that you’re in a remote cabin. If you’re wondering where, the answer’s pretty obvious if you look out the windows upstairs. You’re in the bloody middle of nowhere. So the next time you think about something like you did just now, think also about where you are. If, say, you come on some notion of turning the tables on us and making a run for it, remind yourself you’d freeze to death if you got twenty feet in the snow out there, ‘cuz that’s how deep it is."

Final Notes: A Kidnapping of Sarah Easton 4.9/5 Stars!

The only reason this is not a total 5-star novel, is because something is missing, and I am asking questions, and it is why is there no epilogue? The story needs to be all tied up in a bow for me to end properly, and it is not done, there are too many questions to ask that need answered. What happened to the Doctor? How did she do after the kidnapping, and other questions, but I guess like in life we don’t always get to know or see the answers we want. Other than that, I think this is a great novel that will keep you reading till you reach the last page! Yet for now, A Girl and Her Tablet is telling everyone goodbye till next time!!!
