Opening Hook: Let my attention wonder to playing mindlessly on my phone
Main Character: Three times the boring
Plot Twisty-ness: Existing, but tamed
After all of the glowing reviews I’ve seen for Mary Kubica, this was actually a bit of a disappointment.
Someone has paid to have Mia kidnapped. Colin, her kidnapper, is hired to do the dirty work. But instead of taking her to his boss, he whisks Mia away to a remote cabin and keeps her for himself.
As one would if they were kidnapping another human being.
My god, doesn’t it just seem like SO MUCH WORK? Who would want to kidnap someone?
Like, I get home from work and all I want to do is take off my bra and lay facedown on my mattress while I make ughhhhh ohhhsd nooooo noises and eventually my husband asks me what’s wrong and I can trick him into rubbing my back.
The LAST thing I want to do, is come home from work and have to take care of a person chained in my basement, stinking up the place. Getting their dirty, unwashed butt on stuff. Then you have to empty their piss pots and make them food.
No, thank you. You have to be a special kind of psychopath to want to abduct someone for the “joy” of getting to take care of an adult sized baby.
I am far too lazy for that.
