The Prisoner: A Novel by B.A. Paris
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
After the death of her father, Amelie’s life hits very rock bottom. Within a few years, she manages to improve her lifestyle and marry one of the wealthiest bachelors in London. And now, seating on a mattress in a pitch-dark room, she looks back at the last two weeks of her life determined to break free of her captivity and make her husband pay for his wrongdoings.
Huge fan of B.A.Paris but this book just didn’t trigger the excitement in me as her previous novels did. The plot was good, but it was incredibly easy to predict the ending. The split dual timeline revealed all the exciting twists very early in the book. There were a few thrilling moments here and there, but I felt disappointed by the novel at the end. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to the author’s new novels, and in a meantime, I will look into her oldies.
Thank you, NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for a free and advanced copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
