Swerve by Vicki Pettersson

She's engaged, in love, and on the way to her future mother-in-law's home for the 4th of July celebrations.  It's a nice little trip with her love in his BMW and, while she's not real fond of his mother, she's hoping to have a good time in Lake Arrowhead.  When she needs to use the restroom and finds it's closed, she's a bit upset.  He just swerves around the closed sign and takes her in to the building.  He gets a phone call and stays in the car.  She enters the restroom and so begins her nightmare...

Gallery Books and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It was just published, so you can buy a copy now.  If you do, before you begin reading it make sure you have your choice of drinks, a sandwich for later and visit the rest room first.  Then open the book and hold on to your seat because this is a wild ride!

Kristine hears footsteps in the bathroom and she knows there is no one else about.  Who could it be?  When that someone tries to get in her unit and has a knife, she knows she's in danger.  She escapes but when she goes back to the car, David isn't there.  As she stands there waiting for him, she hears his phone ring.  When she answers, she's given 24 hours to get David back.  She has to follow this strange man's instructions, go the locations on the map, and do what she's told or David will be hurt.  If she had doubts when she started, finding David's mole and eyebrow on the seat of the car after one stop let's her know the man is serious.

It seems every man she talks to ends up dead.  No matter what she does, she can't get out of this man's clutches.  Her only saving grace is that her daughter is safe.  But why isn't Marie answering the phone?

This is an adrenalin packed story about how far one woman will go to save her child and herself.  There are crazy people in the world and she managed to find one of the monsters.  I'm going to find myself remembering this story.  It made an impression on me.
