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!!!

It’s always so hard to review thriller novels. Any novel really, but thrillers I don’t want to spoil anything for everyone else. Did I enjoy this? Well, I read it through one sitting so definitely yes! However, fair warning. The main character in this is ridiculously stupid at times to the point I wanted to reach through the book and go “really? Why would you do that?!” as I was reading. IE: First chapter, she hands over her phone to a man that asked her for it. No threats. No intimidation, just can I have your phone please? Um, no. You don’t just hand it over that’s how my sister’s phone got stolen in St Louis. (It was recovered a month later by police thankfully.) But it’s constantly things that are common sense that she just…ugh. So frustrating!

The bad guys were interesting. At first they start out reasonably smart. Then they go into the “I’m in charge so I’ll make all the blatantly stupid decisions I can” mode about forty percent through the book.

But despite the stupidity of the characters at times the book itself is fast paced and I managed to read it in one sitting. It ties together at the end and though it’s a bit of a wide open ending it still resolved everything so that it surprised me here and there with how it played out. Highly recommend for suspense fans.

This was such a good book and really east to get into.
The story centers around Sarah and following a change in her plans she is kidnapped . She finds herself locked in a secluded cabin with her kidnappers. Sarah is made to record a ransom demand that the kidnappers send to her father. In the meantime Sarah is looking for any means to escape - little does Sarah know that the kidnapping entails a whole lot more than just the ransom.
This was a highly entertaining read, I am so glad I requested it.

I was gripped by this book right from the start and engaged all the way through, I read it in one sitting. I liked the story, the writing and the characters although there were times I was perplexed by their behaviour. It was atmospheric and suspenseful with a good level of unpredictability. I really enjoyed it.

This is a thriller that keeps you wanting to know how it will end. This involves a kidnapping and you feel like you are with the main character in trying to think of a way to escape and wondering if you can be rescued in time.

“The Kidnapping of Sarah Easton” was cleverly written, with suspense and a humor I hadn’t expected. Each of the characters were written with tinges of humanity that asked for sympathy — and empathy — while also giving off the aura of dislike. The protagonist, Sarah Easton, was someone who we couldn’t like 100% of the time, and it was something that felt very real and not like the typical book about a woman who has been kidnapped. It added a sense of urgency, reality, and humanity to every character involved. Though I felt the ending was a bit rushed and it did lose that, but I still overall enjoyed the book.

With solid writing, good dialogue, and an effective prose, you will enjoy this book from start to finish. I thoroughly recommend it.
