If Something Happens to Me

If Something Happens to Me

Ryan is on a lover’s lane date with his girlfriend, Ali, when he is ripped from the car. The assailant takes off with both Ali and the car. The only detail Ryan can remember about the man is he has both pinkies missing. The police suspect Ryan’s story but don’t have enough evidence to arrest him. Five years later, the car is found in a nearby lake. Two men are dead within it. Ali is not found, but her belongings contain an envelope that has If Something Happens to Me written on it. Inside, the message is in code. Poppy McGee, brand new to the local police force, investigates. Meanwhile, Ryan finds the assailant in Europe. Together can they find out what really happened that night in lover’s lane?

Part I of this book had me tearing through the pages. Each short chapter had a mini cliffhanger making it genuinely difficult to stop reading. However, the twist at the end of Part I marks a change in the book’s narrative to a more traditional thriller structure. The story lagged a bit at this point. However, the pace does pick up towards the thrilling conclusion. Overall, If Something Happens to Me is an entertaining thriller. 4 stars!

Thanks to Minotaur Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
