Overview

Traps by MacKenzie Bezos

Reclusive movie star Jessica Lessing is finally coming out of hiding—to confront her father, a con man who has been selling her out to the paparazzi for years. On her four-day road trip to Las Vegas, she encounters three unexpected allies—Vivian, a teenager with newborn twins; Lynn, a dog shelter owner living in isolation on a ranch in rural Nevada; and Dana, a fearless ex-military bodyguard wrestling with secrets of her own. As their fates collide, each woman will find a chance at redemption that she never would have thought possible. MacKenzie Bezos’s taut prose, tough characters, and nuanced insights give this novel a complexity that few thrillers can match.

do we make our traps or are we put into them?  various characters have various ways of looking at this complex issue.  these four women touched my heart in a way that hasn't happened in a time.  each person was distinct and whorthwhile knowing. a lovely book

what could these four women possibly have in common?...different ages and stages in life..on separate paths...but then the paths converge...page after page of scene setting until the interlapping begins..the cross connecting...the divergence transcends the unknowing until all questions are answered and the unknowing becomes known...by the women....by the reader....by the time the book quickly ends

I read this book in two days - once I picked it up, I just kept on reading.  I loved how Ms Bezos' descriptions of the characters left me feeling like I really understood them, each with their own strengths and weaknesses to deal with. Each character had equal importance throughout.  Starting with an introductory back-story for each, the connections between the four women brought out their own independent strength, rounding out the story as a whole, but also for each individual woman.
