LAYOVER by David Bell is a suspense thriller that is not
only believable, but it gains your attention at the
beginning making it hard to put down until the end. Bell did
an amazing job at making you feel that you were right there
in the airport with characters. You could almost here the
sounds and see the busy crowds that are normally inside an
airport by his detail descriptions that added sensation you
felt as you read. The storyline about a guy meeting a girl
at an airport and making a connection only to find out later
that she is a missing person is one that you think will take
you in a certain direction, but believe me, it fools you.
That is what I love about it the most. It keeps you
guessing, but you will be surprised.
The story takes place at an airport where Joshua Fields
meets this woman, Morgan, who he hits it off with. In that
short time, they seem to share a lot, including a kiss. Then
she catches her flight leaving him wanting to know more.
However, what he finds out is more than he bargains for. Her
face shows up on the TV screen at the airport as a missing
person. Joshua does the unpredictable for him and goes on a
whirlwind trying to find out why she is missing, and her
past that is full of secrets. Which ones should he believe?
Novels like this are why I love thrillers! David Bell has a
way of keeping the reader obsessed with the story giving
just enough when needed to keep you guessing. You will not
see what he has coming. LAYOVER is the on the top as one of
my favorite suspense thrillers for the year!
