Today is my stop on #TheGirlOnTheBus by @Normthewriter.
A retired detective and a young woman are about to face their worst fears.
Vicki Reiner is emotionally isolated and craves the fleeting happiness she experienced in the years prior to her college graduation. In an attempt to recapture this, she invites her former friend and room-mate, Laurie, for a break at her deserted beachside home. However, despite booking an online bus ticket, her friend never shows up and seems to have vanished.
Unable to accept the bizarre circumstances of the disappearance, Vicki approaches the police who dismiss her concerns before enlisting the reluctant help of Leighton Jones – a newly retired detective who is haunted by the death of his teenage daughter. Despite trying to remain detached from the case, Leighton is drawn to Vicki and her search for justice.
The unlikely pair face numerous obstacles but using a combination of methods he and Vicki track the killers who are working across the dusty freeways of North America.
Soon Vicki and Leighton find themselves nervously waiting at a remote bus stop expecting the arrival of the bus.
Will they ever discover what happened to Laurie?
And can they both escape with their lives?
What can I say about this book. It was harrowing to read this book and had a lot of vivid imagery. I love the main characters and seeing how well they interact with each other.
It was a very interesting read one that has a lot of plight for Leighton Jones as well as Vickie.
Leighton they showed him as a tough as nails former cop but in reality you see a fragility about him that you didn’t really expect.
I am looking forward to more from this author as thrynhave such ability to capture situations so well.
