Hey everyone. My 2nd of 3 Blog Tour posts for today. This is a review of the book The Second Captive by Maggie James.
Beth Sutton is eighteen years old when she is abducted. Held prisoner in a basement, she’s dependent on her captor for food, clothes and her very existence. As the months pass, her hatred towards her imprisoner changes to compassion.
But Beth cannot forget that her abductor is also a killer. And she has evidence to prove it…
Then Beth escapes
Can Beth escape from the prison that she has found herself in?
And is there a relationship between love and fear?
I was really excited to start this even though it has a similar theme to a book I am writing. I had heard great things about the story.
I wasn’t disappointed. The book was a fairly quick read and a page turner. The story developed well and had a few twists and turns. Some predictable, some not so much.
Beth is one of these characters I like and dislike at the same time. However, the way she was written was excellently throughout and the the plot was done really well. Dominic was a character I loathed and pitied at the same time. With some guidance things could have been very different for him.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys psychological thrillers.
I rate this book 5 out of 5.
Thanks for reading
