Okay, readers, it’s on to another book I read this summer while in Portugal, Trapped by Ronda Gibb Hinrichsen. The book was provided by the author to me in hard copy for review. Though I love reading on my Kindle, I love hard copy almost as much, because I can take it to the beach without worrying about it being stolen or ruined by sand.
I’d expected a young adult book, as that’s what I’d thought it was originally, but I was pleasantly surprised that the characters were older, not angst-filled teenagers–though there was a lot of angst going around, and for good reason.
Emi is house-sitting for her mother when someone breaks in and leaves what seems to be a letter from her father who is supposedly dead. This sets into motion a series of events that have Emi flying to the Austrian Alps with Daniel, her best friend that she has secretly loved for years. Only Emi can free her family from the curse hanging that hangs over them, but she may lose Daniel and her life in the process.
Intrigue, danger, love, and mythical legend blend together to make an interesting, suspenseful read. Lovers of clean paranormal romances, will enjoy this book every bit as much as I did. Visit Ronda at http://www.rondahinrichsen.com/
