Review: GIRL IN TROUBLE by Stacy Claflin

It’s Halloween night, and Alex Mercer was running late for his 11-year old daughter’s party. Even though he never considered himself much of a father, he could at least make an appearance for one of the most important days of her life. But, let’s face it, all he does is drink and sleep nowadays.

The party seemed lengthy and uneventful. So we have a resentful “family” with biting remarks. Sounds like a party. But then things take a turn when Alex witnesses kidnappers take his daughter right in front of him.  Of course, things get a little more interesting when we find out that Alex’s sister was kidnapped 12 years ago. Two kidnappings within the same family?

Like I said, I wasn’t too keen on the family drama. Who cares, right? Everyone is basically wracked with worry over Ariana’s disappearance, but, of course, no one is more worried or guilt-ridden than Alex, who goes out of his way to find her.

Really this should’ve been more compelling than it was. Story had some good writing, but it just had too many lagging areas.


My rating: 2 stars
