Great escapism. Good thriller.

Definitely shows what can drive a mother. Wasn't quite sure where the title came from.

Swerve by Vicki Pettersson is one of the best thrillers I have read in a while! Extremely fast paced plotting and action even with flashbacks into Kristine’s childhood. No one in this story is to be taken at face value. There is always a twist that pulls you in to continue reading, make you cringe, or make your heart rate rise. This book does have graphic violence and is not for the faint of heart.
Kristine Rush is a surgical tech traveling from Las Vegas with her surgeon fiancé, Daniel, to visit his mother and friends in California for an engagement party on the 4th of July. Daniel swerves on the interstate and Kristine spills coffee everywhere, so they pull into a deserted rest stop to clean up. Kristine is attacked and knocked out in the ladies room. When she returns to Daniel’s car, he is missing, but his cell phone has been left in plain view on the driver’s seat. Then comes the call from a mechanically disguised voice that if she wants to see her fiancé alive again she must follow all of the following instructions.
The plot takes off and never slows down. This book was hard to put down, but I had to at time to get my anxiety level back to normal levels. Thank you so much to Galley Books and Net Galley for allowing me to read this ebook in exchange for an honest review. It was definitely my pleasure!

I read this through Negalley. It was a fun but gory read and reminded me a bit of the movie Duel but with a strong female protagonist. Definitely recommended
