Traces of Kara

"Traces of Kara" is the first of Melissa Foster's books that I have read, and I was pleasantly surprised by it.  I can honestly say that the story kept me on the edge of my seat and unable to predict the ending!

Kara lives a routine life.  Newly divorced, she takes a job at the local plant so she can pay her way through nursing school... her ticket out of town.  So when a psychopath thinks that Kara is his long lost sister, stalks her, breaks into the plant to kidnap Kara, and kills anyone who stands in his way of completing his plan, her reality is torn apart.  But she is not alone, the rising body count of obstacles in her captor's path begin to pull apart his frail grip on reality.

Traces of Kara is a fast-paces thriller with no shortage of surprises along the way. As I was reading it, the book was nearly impossible to put down.  Thank goodness for the text-to-speech function on Kindle so I could listen to the book when it wasn't possible to actually read it! "Traces of Kara" is really well written, has well developed characters, and will stay with you long after you finish the book.

  1. I haven't read this one yet, but I read Melissa Foster's Megan's Way and Chasing Amanda. They were phenomenal as is Melissa. Her World Literary Cafe is an excellent place to hang out for writers and readers: I am sure I will love Traces of Kara!
