She’s done it again… S.L. Pierce’s new book Treasure Hunt is a thrilling roller coaster ride that will leave you wondering who the real bad guy is until the very end of the book. There were so many twists and turns that I found myself unable to put it down and would literally have my Kindle die on me before I could manage to tear my eyes away from the words. My review is below.
Beth and Sam can hardly believe it when they are selected randomly in a mall food court to audition for a new reality TV show soon to be airing on ME TV. In order to qualify for the show all the two unsuspecting 20-somethings need to do is dress up in sexy lingerie and participate in a treasure hunt that will lead them to 500 dollars somewhere in the mall. (Stick with it. It’s a little strange and unbelievable, but it’s necessary to the storyline.)
But Beth, a pharmaceutical drug representative and women’s advocate, is not so sure when the treasure hunt turns into a group of activities that leave the women degrading themselves in front of the growing crowd. At one point she even blacks out and can’t remember how she got home the next morning. It’s not until Beth makes it into work on Monday and her boss shows her the cleverly edited final product that was posted on You Tube that she realizes she’s been set up and someone is out to get her. But who?
Through investigation Beth and Sam have narrowed down the mastermind to the handsome TV host Steve – whose real name is Brian. But after visiting Brian’s workplace and doing some digging, Beth can’t understand what she’s ever done to this charitable, selfless individual to deserve such a backlash.
Instead of confronting Brian head-on about the why, Beth sets up a little treasure hunt herself in which she plans to humiliate Brian just as he had humiliated her… until something goes terribly wrong.
This book has so many twists and turns it’ll leave your head spinning. One minute you think Beth really did do Brian wrong. Then you think Brian got the wrong idea. Then someone else pops into the picture. And finally the mastermind is revealed. But how Beth’s best friend Sam fits into the picture is the craziest twist of all.
I definitely give this book 5 of 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone who looking for an unconventional thriller that has you wishing you brought your Kindle charger with you to work.
