No Exit
No Exit: A Novel | Taylor Adams
A brilliant, edgy thriller about four strangers, a blizzard, a kidnapped child, and a determined young woman desperate to unmask and outwit a vicious psychopath. A kidnapped little girl locked in a strangers van. No help for miles. What would you do? On her way to Utah to see her dying mother, college student Darby Thorne gets caught in a fierce blizzard in the mountains of Colorado. With the roads impassable, shes forced to wait out the storm at a remote highway rest stop. Inside are some vending machines, a coffee maker, and four complete strangers. Desperate to find a signal to call home, Darby goes back out into the storm . . . and makes a horrifying discovery. In the back of the van parked next to her car, a little girl is locked in an animal crate. Who is the child? Why has she been taken? And how can Darby save her? There is no cell phone reception, no telephone, and no way out. One of her fellow travelers is a kidnapper. But which one? Trapped in an increasingly dangerous situation, with a childs life and her own on the line, Darby must find a way to break the girl out of the van and escape. But who can she trust? With exquisitely controlled pacing, Taylor Adams diabolically ratchets up the tension with every page. Full of terrifying twists and hairpin turns, No Exit will have you on the edge of your seat and leave you breathless.

Wow I really loved this one! Very fast paced and keeps you guessing. The suspense was excellent and lasted the whole book. This was just a really fun read. Side note: I watched the movie after and the movie sucked compared to the book. I mean not totally but I‘d only give the movie a 3.

I started out iffy on this one, some of the MCs decisions were… interesting. But she grew on me. Lots of action, gore and twists.

Darby is traveling home on Christmas break, last minute to see her ailing mother, the snowy conditions force her to stop at a rest area where she discovers that there‘s a kidnapped young girl in the back of a van. With no cell signal, or way to get help. Who can she trust? And how can they survive until help arrives?

I don‘t really get the premise of this book…
If I see a kidnapped child in a van, outside, while we are getting snowed in, so the child is out there in freezing conditions. The extent of my investigation is going to be 🏏🏏 Excuse meeeee whose van is thaaaaat 👊🥊🔪🔪
There are other people there who are also not kidnappers…

⭐️⭐️ ½ • Read before watching the Hulu movie. Not a literary masterpiece by any means, but a welcome distraction for me right now. A bonkers throwaway thriller that makes for a quick read. (Warning: It does get quite violent and gory.)

What would you do? Would you save the girl or pretend you didn‘t see anything? Someone you just met has done something horribly wrong. Who can you trust? What can you do? Make the wrong choice & you may end up in that crate with her. Make the right choice & you could be a hero. So I ask again, what would you do?

This fast moving thriller reads like a movie. A woman gets stuck in a highway rest stop during a blizzard in the Rocky Mountains. She discovers one of the people she is stuck with, has abducted a child and is determined to save that child. Entertaining yet forgettable! Between a so-so and a pick.

Loved this! It had me hooked from the very beginning. Darby finds herself stranded at a rest stop during a blizzard with a group of strangers…and a little girl in a cage in the back of someone‘s van. Who can she trust? By the last 100 pages, I just admitted nothing else was getting done and I hunkered down to read til the end. Definitely a fun suspense!

I did a lot of internal screaming/panicking throughout the book! A lot of grimacing, too. I read the last 2/3 of it in one sitting because I didn‘t want to put it down. It is quite graphic in parts. Being someone with both a sensitive heart as well as a love for thrillers, I will need a light hearted read following this story! But a pick nonetheless.

Rave pick! Darby Thorne is driving through the Colorado mountains to see her ill mother when she gets caught in a storm. She stops at a rest stop where she finds a little girl locked in a cage in the back of a van. What a thrill ride! Most of the book takes place in a span of 12 hours and boy does this race along, but in a great way. Excellent book, one decent twist but forget about the twist, it‘s just really good!

Darby is rushing to get home to her dying mother, but due to hazardous blizzard conditions is forced to stop at a remote rest stop.

There with three strangers, she soon learns one of them is a psychopath.

Who has a girl trapped in a van outside.

Determined to save the girl and get out alive, Darby steps up as the heroine and fights literally through the entire night.

This book was such a trip! Intense and heart-racing nonstop action. Loved it!

Book 47

A thriller about four people stranded at a rest stop during a blizzard. The writing isn't good, but the plot has potential. It jumped almost immediately, I worried prematurely, into the climax, but it's a novel full of twists and continual climaxes. Overall, it fell short of its potential. ⭐⭐⭐

I was prepared not to like this book from the way it started. I thought the story/characters were not developed enough but I was wrong. As the book goes on, the story and characters get better and I ended up really into this story and not wanting to put it down. I was ok with the ending and I definitely didn‘t feel like it was predictable.
