I have been intrigued with the books written by Ronda Hinrichsen ever since I saw the cover of her first novel, Missing, so I was excited to get the opportunity to review Trapped. Suspense starts on the first page and continues throughout the story. There were a few places where I had a hard time following what was happening, but the pacing and intrigue held my attention and made it hard to put the book down.
I also enjoyed the paranormal aspects of the story which took me by surprise. The romantic element was present, but was not overpowering. Overall, Trapped was a very engaging read, and I highly recommend it. I look forward to reading more from this author.
The publisher will be giving away THREE autographed copies!
