    I received an ARC of this novel from Bookouture through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. The plot was interesting, the twists were great, and the ending was surprising and unexpected, which is what I love about thrillers. The feeling of being on my toes while reading this was greatly felt, but as far as my emotions towards the characters and their stakes, not so much. To give a short snyopsis, this novel follows 26-year-old Bree Walker as he tries to find her sister, Alissa, who has been kidnapped. No one knows who kidnapped her, or why, but all evidence points to her younger brother, Tyler, having something to do with the reason. Bree has only until midnight to find her, so it is a race against time to find out what happened with Tyler, and why Alissa is in the middle of the situation. The premise was great, the suspense was there, the atmosphere was suffocating. All of the pieces were where they should have been for this story, and it was enjoyable! Here's my problem though: While the characters seemed rightfully scared and confused, I felt that the stakes for the individual characters weren't heightened enough. There is a certain tightness I get in my chest when I see a character freaking out about something happening or going wrong, and it makes propel further into the story to see the problem resolved. In this novel, however, that tightness in my chest was non-existent. I could not express what it was specifically that I think contributed to this lack of emotional involvement on my part, as I have no clear idea. I just felt that the character's, although they were quite literally crying or screaming in frustration on almost every page, I didn't get that feeling that there was a serious problem here. Maybe I've read too many thrillers at this point in my life, and I've become desensitized. I really wish I knew what was the problem, as everything else in this story worked for me, even the length! Overall, it was really enjoyable and a good read, but my emotional involvement was not where I wanted it to be with this story.
