Dying for Christmas by Tammy Cohen

dying for christmasBlurb from goodreads.com, please scroll down for my review.

 I am missing. Held captive by a blue-eyed stranger. To mark the twelve days of Christmas, he gives me a gift every day, each more horrible than the last. The twelfth day is getting closer. After that, there’ll be no more Christmas cheer for me. No mince pies, no carols. No way out .

But I have a secret. No-one has guessed it. Will you?

My Review

Genre: Psychological Thriller

Thrilling book, a little unbelievable the part where Jessica goes off with a stranger, but there are so many twists you can’t always get your head round them, but all in a good way. Jessica the main character, she has been kidnapped and what happens during the kidnapping and after it, is suspenseful, surpriseful and dark, very dark, I was surprised on more than one occasion.

The book is written from various different points of view, Jessica the main one and also the Liaison Officer who is helping out her family who also has her own thoughts about the kidnapping

It is also written in two different parts, one, where Jessica is kidnapped and the other after. At the end of the first part, the book could finish there but there is so much more… more excitement and darkness, moments that will make you go wow. I had no idea what was going to happen.

You might find yourself being sucked into this book, make sure you have time to yourself cause you won’t want to put it down. Dark characters, dark moments. Fantastic book.

Highly recommended.
