Traces of Kara
By Melissa Foster
About the book:
Kara Knight can’t wait to leave her hometown for the promise of nursing school and a fresh start on her future–leaving behind an over protective mother, a broken heart and painful memories. However, twenty-five miles away, the twin she doesn’t know exists is determined to be reunited with the sister he cannot forget.
Kara is abducted and thrown into her obsessive captor’s delusional world. As the past she thought she knew unravels around her, Kara struggles to make sense of the memories that come creeping back, threatening her sanity and her safety. Meanwhile, Kara’s mother races against time to save the daughter she fears she will lose when a long-held secret is revealed. The hours tick away as her captor plays out his plan–to take Kara with him into death at the exact moment of their birth, never to be separated again.
I read Traces of Kara within a few days. Traces of Kara is a nail biting, faced paced thriller that follows Kara, Roland, Mimi and several other key characters through the town’s power plant. Roland has a detailed plan to capture his twin sister, Marissa. He feels like she was taken away from him and he wants to “die together” so they can be together forever.
Traces of Kara makes you wonder if Roland is crazy and misguided. Is Roland’s memory correct? Can he believe what is being told to him by those around him? I was left wondering who to believe. Did Roland have the facts straight? Was Mimi telling him the truth? All of my questions were answered. This book definitely kept me guessing and up late at night just to finish “one more chapter.”
Traces of Kara is a minute by minute thriller that follows different points of view, which gave me a well-rounded timeline. Each scene is so detailed that I can feel what the characters are feeling, seeing, hearing, etc. Each character involved has the same goal, to survive and save another. Traces will test your bravery, loyalty and make you want to hug your own family.
