Release Day Review: Blind Spot by Brenda Novak

Series: The Evelyn Talbot Chronicles #4
Genre: Thriller

New York Times bestseller Brenda Novak's Evelyn Talbot series returns, with a heavily pregnant Evelyn being held hostage.

With Jasper Moore, the privileged boy who attacked her when she was only sixteen, finally caught and in prison, Dr. Evelyn Talbot, founder and head psychiatrist at Hanover House (a prison/research facility for psychopaths in remote Alaska), believes she can finally quit looking over her shoulder. She's safe, happier than she's ever been and expecting her first child. She's also planning to marry Amarok, her Alaska State Trooper love interest and the town's only police presence. But before the wedding can take place, a psychopath from the much more recent past comes out of nowhere and kidnaps her in broad daylight. Instead of planning her wedding, Evelyn finds herself doing everything she can to survive, save her baby and devise some way to escape while Amarok races the clock to find her - before it's too late.

Blind Spot is a fast-paced and very suspenseful addition to The Evelyn Talbot Chronicles. It picks up directly where the previous book left off, and the race against the clock starts. Evelyn is kidnapped and Amarok doesn't know where to start with his search. This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. The author did an incredible job in making the reader feel the urgency of the situation. The multiple POVs was great and told the story from different perspectives, including the villains, and it added an extra layer to the story. I always love to get a insight into the minds of these psychopaths. It was interesting that Jasper added important insights in regards to the kidnapping case. I was intrigued by why he was inserting himself in the situation, so I was glad that his POV was included in this book as well. 

Evelyn has grown so much in this series, and you can really see the growth in this book. She has come a long way, and she is a very strong woman that will fight 'til the end. She doesn't give up and will do anything to save her unborn child and herself. There were a couple of incidents that could've moved the case along faster, but it felt like not everyone was working very well together. In my opinion it sometimes took them too long to figure things out, which annoyed me a bit. I also missed seeing Evelyn and Amarok together. I really love their dynamic so I felt disappointed when I didn't get the opportunity to see a lot of them together. Hopefully, we will get more of that in the next book. Blind Spot was overall a great addition to this series, and I am still very invested in the characters, including the bad guys. This book added some extra insight into the interaction between prisoners at the Hanover House.
