“I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars.”
Stephanie has lost her husband and child in a car accident. She moved to Arizona leaving her job to start a new life. Things, unfortunately, do not pan out for this lady. She becomes suspicious of a few phone calls. She then becomes aware of having a stalker. The creepy kind that comes and takes your clothes or keeps making you aware of their existence but not tell you who they are. On top of everything, Stephanie is also experiencing flashbacks from the past. A hallucination of some sort taking her to a place that she feels she has been before. It is a vision of a girl being trapped in a chicken coop. She seeks help from the police but they do not believe her no matter how much she tries. She has no way but to save herself from the inevitable. However, as soon as she is almost getting somewhere the stalker captures her. Once captured all the puzzle pieces come together creating this fabulous emotional thriller.
Sleep then my Princess is an emotional and heart-wrenching story. It takes you inside a psychopath’s mind and then moves you to an innocent and troubled young lady. As if Stephanie has not suffered enough she now has to deal with another horrified endeavor. You experience backstory on the villain and the girl, which was nice, instead of just focusing on the girl. I felt the author focused on both aspects of the characters.
The pace of the story built up while discovering who the kidnapper was, creatively plotted. Right up to the end you really cannot determine who it is. Many twist and turn happen which increase the suspense. The book is easy to understand and to follow. If you are a suspense thriller reader, you will thoroughly enjoy this tale. There are grammatical, structural and other typos in the book but all together it was a good read.
I recommend this book to anyone that likes an action thriller with psychological references.
