Hidden Intentions by Alan Brenham.
When 13-year-old Cailey Marshall’s mission to an abandoned Texas house goes wrong, she must find ways to escape from her ruthless kidnappers and survive, while her parents are forced into making a deadly choice to save their daughter and discover the truth. Cailey sets out on a dare devised by her clique of friends, but the dare goes horribly wrong. When her father, Barry Marshall, discovers that his daughter’s adventurous game got her kidnapped by Anne Murphy and her cohorts, he is faced with a deadly dilemma. Anne’s ultimatum requires him to kill his brother or Cailey dies. She refuses to tell him why his brother must die.
On the other hand, a mother will do anything for her child. It is Erin, who without hesitation, goes out on a limb to save her daughter. Even if it means murder to do it. Meanwhile, Cailey must deal with Anne’s sadistic torment if she hopes to survive.
Review by Amanda Mountjoy: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Reviewed voluntarily as an ARC from Book Sirens. This book is so good. The plot was great with interesting characters. It held my attention until the end. A definite must read! I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
Review by Kay: 5.0 out of 5 Stars. Very suspenseful and fast paced story.This is a story about a young girl who gets kidnapped while on a dare. It’s a fast-paced quick read that leaves you guessing who is behind the kidnapping. It’s a great story but the ending is a bit abrupt.
