SOPHIE BARRETT THINKS SHE’S LUCKY TO BE ALIVE.
SHE MAY BE DEAD WRONG.
On a sweltering summer afternoon, Sophie Barrett walks into a nightmare. A sniper has opened fire on a college campus. When the carnage is over, three people—plus the shooter—are dead, and dozens more injured. Sophie escapes virtually unscathed. Yet as details emerge from the investigation, she becomes convinced that this wasn’t the random, senseless act it appeared. No one wants to believe her—not the cops, not her colleagues at the Delphi Center crime lab, and definitely not Jonah Macon, the homicide detective who’s already saved her life once.
Jonah has all kinds of reasons for hoping Sophie is mistaken. Involving himself with a key witness could derail an already messy investigation, not to mention jeopardize his career. But Sophie is as determined and fearless as she is sexy. If he can’t resist her, he can at least swear to protect her. Because if Sophie is right, she’s made herself the target of a killer without a conscience. And the real terror is only just beginning…
3.5 stars out of 5 stars
I thoroughly enjoyed Snapped. Laura Griffin hooked me with the premise of the book, it hit a little too close to home considering all the school shooting that have happened. The suspense portion of the book hooked me as did the romance but only to an extent. I really enjoyed Sophie and Jonah's characters in the previous books but there were some moments that made me perplexed by Sophie's antics. Just like Mia in Unforgivable, Sophie reacted in a way that made me questioned her. She had survived an attack and here she was, acting irrationally. Also, I just couldn't love Jonah. I liked him but there was something about him that stopped me from loving him.
All in all, I am enjoying this series and I look forward to reading the next one, Twisted.
