Book Review-The Girl Who Wants: A Fast-Paced Mystery Thriller-Amy Vansant

Tuesday, June 22, 2021

I have to admit I was a bit lost at the beginning of this novel. But as I kept reading I began to follow the storyline. This novel goes back and forth and up and down! It is a non stop thriller with lots of action!

There are parts that may make you chuckle as Shee tries to talk her way out of a couple of things--that's when she is not proving that women can be just as lethal as men!

Someone is out to kill Shee--her Dad is in a coma--and there was a secret she kept from a guy years ago which he is not too pleased about. I especially loved the last line that her Dad (not in a coma anymore)-screams from his kitchen!!

I definitely ended up enjoying this novel--it kept me on my toes for sure!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

A wildly entertaining, wholly unique tour de force of action, psychological drama and wit from USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Amy Vansant.

Shee wants a home.

Shee McQueen grew up skip tracing and hunting military criminals with her father, Mick, until someone put a bounty on her head, forcing her underground. Resurfacing years later, she returns to her family’s hotel in Jupiter Beach, FL, to find Mick in a coma, shot in the head by an unknown sniper.

Shee wants answers.

The Loggerhead Inn has everything Shee could want in a beach hotel---sea turtle wall art, a tiny Yorkshire terrier mascot who thinks she’s a pit bull, and her father’s staff of deadly, damaged military veterans, looking to redeem their troubled souls by helping others. Not to mention--- Hold on...

How did Mason Connelly, the SEAL she fell for decades ago, just appear in the lobby? Why did he have to show up now demanding answers to secrets long buried?

Shee wants it all back.

But someone wants her dead.

From the moment Shee McQueen appears, The Girl Who Wants straps the reader into a twisting roller-coaster ride of heart-stopping action, snappy dialog and intrigue. Shee’s quest to recover the life and loves she’s lost brings a depth of emotion rare in such page-turning suspense. The unique female lead's funny, irreverent and all-too-human asides will have you rooting for her — and her whole pack of wild, wonderful misfit friends — until the breathless end.

Fans of Liane Moriarty, Carl Hiaasen, Donald E. Westlake, Janet Evanovich, James Patterson and John Grisham will love this exhilarating page-turner.

This definitely sounds like an interesting book! I usually don't like books that are hard to get into but I would give this a try.
