Review: The Layover
Title: The Layover
Author: David Bell
Release Date: July 2nd, 2019
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Synopsis from Goodreads: Joshua Fields takes the same flights every week for work, his life a series of departures and arrivals, hotels and airports. During yet another layover, he meets Morgan, a beautiful stranger with whom he feels an immediate connection. When it's time for their respective flights, Morgan kisses Joshua passionately, lamenting that they'll never see each other again. As soon as Morgan disappears in the crowd, Joshua is shocked to see her face on a nearby TV. The reason: Morgan is a missing person. What follows is a whirlwind, fast-paced journey filled with lies, deceit, and secrets as Joshua tries to discover why Morgan has vanished from her own life. Every time he thinks one mystery is solved, another rears its head--and his worst enemy might be his own assumptions about those around him.
My Review: I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this one, never having read any David Bell books but I ended up really liking it. I didn’t really like Joshua in the beginning. He seemed whiny and indecisive but he grew on me on as the book progressed. Bell did an excellent job of drawing me into the story and connecting me with the characters he created. I felt as though I know them in the end. There were a few parts of the book that dragged for me, and I ended up skimming those, but for the most part it was a great read.
