Layover by David Bell


An airport, a chance meeting, an unforgettable, secretive woman, a woman who is actually missing, tells lies and doesn’t care who she involves or hurts.

Joshua saw a woman in the bar and knew she needed some help just by the way she was acting so he canceled his plans with his father to follow Morgan.

Is she really worth helping? After their meeting, Joshua thinks so.

Meanwhile, Morgan’s boss is also missing and not too long after Morgan had been visiting him to try to straighten out the reason she didn’t get a raise after making an app that made the company a lot of money.

LAYOVER moves along quickly, and I wanted to tell Joshua to stop being a good guy and stay away from Morgan who he never knew before this chance meeting.

Every time they would find each other and Morgan would leave, it had me wondering why in the world Joshua was being so irresponsible....just get back to your life, but he wasn’t listening to me.  :)

More characters, and I mean people who don’t think, come on the scene and each one has some connection to Morgan, but the only connection they all have in common is that no one knows where Morgan is or where her boss, Giles, is.

LAYOVER kept me in suspense, kept my blood pressure up, and had me shaking my head at the stupidity of Joshua.  Why go to these lengths and ruin your life?  Maybe he didn’t think he was ruining his life?

Mr. Bell has written another tense thriller with a very manipulative, not nice main character.

Are you intrigued?

ENJOY if you read LAYOVER!!  5/5

This book was given to me by the publisher in print and NETGALLEY in exchange for an honest review.
