Book Review-Traces of Kara-Melissa Foster

Friday, December 29, 2017


If you are a fan of Melissa's contemporary romances-either the sexy or the sweet ones (that she writes under the name Addison Cole)-which I am-you will not believe this one! It is SPINE CHILLING. A psychological thriller at it's best. The ending gave me goose bumps!

Kara has a twin of whom she has absolutely no memory. They were separated when they were very young. Her Mom took her away and they started a new life. But the twin never forgot her--obsession is the prevalent word.

He finds her----

"Born together-Die together" is his mantra--

Melissa Foster has done a superb job and I recommend this to any one--one word of advice--don't read late at night!!


About the Book: (from Amazon)

TRACES OF KARA is an action packed, pulse pounding psychological thriller/suspense novel that features a determined killer who slowly loses his grip on reality as his carefully detailed plan starts to fall apart and a heroine determined to move forward with her life who now must reconcile everything she believed to be true about her family with the reality of their tragic past.

***
Kara Knight didn't know she had a twin...until it was too late.

Kara Knight can't wait to leave her hometown for the promise of nursing school and a fresh start on her future--leaving behind an over protective mother, a broken heart and painful memories. However, twenty-five miles away, the twin she doesn't know exists is determined to be reunited with the sister he cannot forget.

Kara is abducted and thrown into her obsessive captor's delusional world. As the past she thought she knew unravels around her, Kara struggles to make sense of the memories that come creeping back, threatening her sanity and her safety. Meanwhile, Kara's mother races against time to save the daughter she fears she will lose when a long-held secret is revealed. The hours tick away as her captor plays out his plan--to take Kara with him into death at the exact moment of their birth, never to be separated again.
