Many thanks to Giselle and Xpresso Tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.
This was an absolutely fun read. I left all my analysis aside and read the book for the pure thrill of it. Sophie was the daughter of the first female American President. A terrorist threat forced her family to separate out. Her brother Erik was missing and soon kidnapped by a terrorist. Sophie had to use all her skills and her intelligence to get to the truth along with the help of her friends.
My first book by Shannon Greenland was a pure 3 hours of adrenaline. The book didn’t give me time to think. The story kept its fast pace and forced me to jog along with it, trying to keep up. Some of the secrets and people involved could be guessed. But I left that aside just to enjoy the ride.
Sophie as the main character thrilled me at times and sometimes left me exasperated. It was thrilling to see what she could do in 24 hours to save her family. I liked knowing about her life in flashbacks, and it was obvious how much she loved them.
My niggles popped up soon. I liked the kickass heroine, but if she was pondering over a boy in a race against time, it simply irked me. Romance could be done post danger. So I felt.
The author’s writing was a web of deceit which involved the past and dragged it onto the present in a seamless manner. Reading the book was like watching a three dimensional thriller movie with popcorn, I would say.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

I am the daughter of the first female POTUS, and today is about to become the longest day of my life…
24 hours—that’s how much time I have to save my mother before terrorists assassinate her. But now my father and brother are missing, too. This goes deeper than anyone thinks. Only someone on the inside would know how to pull this off—how to make the entire First Family disappear.
I can’t trust anyone, so it’s up to me to uncover the conspiracy and stop these madmen. Because little do they know, they picked the wrong person to terrorize.
My name is Sophie Washington, and I will not be a victim. No one, I repeat no one, is taking me or my family down. But the clock is ticking…
