I really enjoyed this book. I guess you could say that it's different from the rest, lately I've been reading chick-lit, where there's a lot of romance and drama going on. Here we have a whole different story, more contemporary than the rest.
Here we have Sammy, aka Samara, who lives in a small town that nobody's ever heard of. She's the pastor's daughter, and does everything that she's supposed to do, but when a young girl in her town goes missing, she is on the run to find out the kidnapper. Everyone is a suspect, including Jody's brother, Nick.
So, we have a good plot here. Some parts became a little dull on the side, but overall it was likeable and average. It could've been better, though.
I liked Samara. She was very confident, and knew what she was capable of doing. She wouldn't give up on things, and was a very straight-forward person.
This is a book for those who need something a little more on the dark side, but not too dark.
