In an attempt to bridge the looming gap between her daughter, twelve-year-old Thea, and herself, Anne rents a remote cabin for a girl’s weekend in the woods. She also brings along her own mother, Mimi. Can their combined Survival Instincts save them from this horror movie opening scene?
Thea’s goal is to watch Pride and Prejudice for the umpteenth time with her beloved grandmother. She absolutely will not obsess about how her mother ruined her life. She loved Ted. No matter what anyone else said.
Anne also has a secret. A dark secret. About Thea’s father.
Survival Instincts is three women’s tale of how one day they literally ran into a psychopath. The constant shifts in both voice and time are a bit disorientating. However, there is a good story within this book. If you like women-in-jeopardy stories, you will enjoy this character-based thriller. 4.5 stars!
Thanks to Dutton Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
