Book Blog Tour: Trapped by Irene Hannon

Laura Griffith has become the guardian of her sixteen-year-old half-sister Darcy who thinks her rules are too strict. She decides to run away but a winter storm unexpectedly shuts down the city, leaving her and her traveling companion at a stand-still. The more time that she is gone, the greater her chances of being at risk for being led into a difficult lifestyle, such as a life of drugs, alcohol, or prostitution. Laura hires private investigator James Devlin to help find Darcy and he puts his skills to use to try to find a way to retrace her steps. Bad things always seem to happen to people in Darcy’s life and she can’t imagine that her sister is looking for her. A new man Darcy meets picks up the unwanted feelings she receives from people, and it is up to the readers to be able to learn whether he is out to help or hurt her.

As I started this story of a runaway teen, I had no idea how the story was going to be able to be drawn out through a little under 400 pages. Irene is very skilled though in unraveling the mystery step-by-step, bringing readers into much detail of the characters’ personality traits, relationships, and day-to-day activities. I could tell a lot of time and research had been put into this story, detailing what sometimes happens to runaways, the background of crime investigation and law, determination to solve a mystery, the emergency response, and recovery. Readers will be hanging onto the edge of their seats wondering what will transpire next!

This book was another page-turner for me, causing me to get lost in the story well into the night in most cases because I didn't want to put the book down! Ever since the first time I read a novel by Irene Hannon I have always looked forward to the release of her next title, which is the case with this novel also!
