Blurb – Here today. Dead tomorrow?
My best friend, Emily, is dead – killed last night in a hotel fire.
But it was meant to be me.
Now I have 24 hours to find my daughter.
Before he finds out I’m still alive.
My thoughts – 24 Hours is a fast paced psychological thriller that is hard to put down. It has twists and turns and the more I read the harder it was to figure out who killed Laurie’s friend Emily and who is after Laurie as everyone could have done it. I thrive on trying to guess “the who done it” in all books but this kept me guessing and totally engrossed all the way through and even wondering at one point if there really was someone after her.
The story opens with Laurie in hospital with smoke inhalation after the fire and the book is very cleverly spread out telling the story before and the 24 hours after the fire. Some books I’ve read where time jumps it has been a bit confusing but Claire seems to do this seamlessly and the 24 hour time frame parts are so intense I was reading it like I was being chased and had to get it finished.
24 Hours is a heart racing, adrenaline pumping, can’t put down read. I’m really looking forward to reading more from Claire soon.
Thanks to Bookouture and Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
