Title: Come and Get Us
Author: James Patterson with Shan Serafin
Is this part of a series? No. This is a standalone bookshot

A family trip takes a deadly turn when Miranda’s car is deliberately run off the road. Her young daughter is shaken, her husband badly hurt, and there’s no help in sight. Miranda must move forward, climbing a mountainside in search of help. Her husband’s parting words: “Be careful who you trust.” What exactly has he gotten them into??? Dodging killers and running on fumes, can the family make it out alive?
Holy heck, what a ride! Buckle up and make sure to allow for a lot of suspension of disbelief. While there is a lot going on that, let’s face it, would never really happen… isn’t it that way with most action/ thrillers? This one may be a bit over the top, but it was fun, interesting, and, as promised, a lightning-fast read. The story was really perfect for a bookshot.
I enjoyed the main characters, Miranda, Aaron and little Sierra. I liked the dynamic between the three. The premise caught my attention right away, and I was really interested. It quickly became a favorite of mine. Five Stars!
On the adult content scale, I give it a four. There is some language and violence, but I have honestly read worse in a YA novel that I still handed to my 13 year old niece. Still…
The book is out. Have you read it?
