Adam is driving his wife, Katy and their children, Freya and Dylan home one night when an erractic driver almost collides with them. The other car causes a rock to hit and break one of their headlights. Katy wants Adam to let it go and keep driving, but Adam follows the car, flashing his lights and beeping his horn. The other pulls over as does Adam. It is obvious that things are not going to end well when this happens. Ahh, if only he had listened to his wife. When Adam and the other driver get out of their cars, thing go from bad to worse, when a woman in the back of the other car calls for help, Jack and his family are caught in the middle of a nightmare.

The pacing in this book is fairly fast and keeps the reader engaged. I liked that I was not given too much information. This book serves as a cautionary tale against road rage. Sometimes its best to keep going and not engage. In this book, the characters are pretty much in the dark and trying to figure out how one incident has drastically changed their lives. I didn’t know what was going on either and I learned things at the same time the characters in the book did.

This book would make for a great plane book. It is pure escapism reading. It was entertaining and kept my interest throughout. This isn’t a book where the reader really needs to try and figure things out – just read along and enjoy.

Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my own.
