REVIEW for The Gatekeeper

Thank you Adam at Harlequin!!!!

TITLE: The Gatekeeper

AUTHOR: Michelle Gagnon

GENRE: Thriller

RATING: 4 Stars

The Gatekeeper was a very, very pleasant surprise. I have gone off the thriller genre over the last few years, but occasionally, I am lucky enough to pick up a book that makes me remember why I use to read them so avidly.

The Gatekeeper features a likeable heroine in the character of Kelly Jones - she is both bright and interesting and what I love is that at no time is she portrayed as a helpless female. She is a strong female lead. I also liked Madison Grant who, in the beginning of the book is kind of a stupid young adult, but as the storyline progresses, she, herself grows progressively as a character and becomes a force of her own.

This story is about abduction, ransom and terrorists all mixed together and it works. From the first few pages, I was instantly hooked. I honestly could not put all the pieces together until the very end - which is something I love when I pick up a thriller. I also found myself NOT wanting to put the book down -"just one more page"....also a great sign of a great book in my opinion. This one is worth reading

Oh good, a thriller with a female lead! I like that.

I love books like this, for some odd reason. I could never watch a movie like this, though.
