Spoiler-Free Review: Hostage

“Trying to remember that you love someone who is screaming that they hate you, who has hurled the tea you lovingly cooked them across the floor, is like trying to recall summer when it’s minus two outside.”

Author: Clare MacKintosh

Between her crumbling marriage and trouble bonding with her adopted daughter, flight attendant Mina plans on using the twenty-hour nonstop flight to think things through. but this flight is hardly routine. With terrorists threatening not just the flight, but her family on the ground, Mina finds herself an unwilling accomplice to their villainous schemes, but twenty hours is a long time. Will it be long enough for Mina to find a way to fight back?

This book kept me at the edge of my seat! This is one of the best thrillers I have ever read. Mina is a great lead character. I love how smart Sophia is! Often times in stories like this, kids are written as either too dumb to live, or as mini college-educated adults. Sophia is the right blend of age-appropriate (possibly high-functioning autistic) problem-solving. She’s very smart for her age, but she still reasons like a child.

I recommend this book to fans of thrillers and that ending will leave you gasping for breath.
