Review: Behind the Stars by Leigh Talbert Moore


Prentiss Puckett is certain of three things:

-Graduation is two weeks away.-Summer only gets hotter in south Mississippi.-She’s getting a job with air-conditioning.

She did not expect to be kidnapped walking to work. And she never expected to become a hero.

Red Dawn meets L O S T in this new action-adventure romance from Amazon bestselling author Leigh Talbert Moore.


4 Stars!

Leigh got in touch with me about reviewing this book and I'm glad she did.  Just based on the synopsis, this book is not what I thought it was.  This was a paranormal read but luckily that doesn't bother me at all.  In fact at the time, I was needing a change. 

Prentiss is a strong character.  She's a hard worker.  Wanting to better herself, she helps out and learns all she can from the local vet.  Her plans are to get through school, then marry Jackson and help out on the farm.  But there are a turn of events that prevent that.

Prentiss is a character who works hard and looks out for those she cares about.  She tries so hard to get back to her boyfriend Jackson and never loses hope.  No matter how hopeless the situation seems, she never gives up.  She is always thinking of a way out of the situation she is in.  

Just from the synopsis you think this is just a story of Prentiss being kidnapped and how she finds a way out, but it's not.  Oh, it's so much more than that.  She is actually kidnapped but wakes in a camp with people she recognizes like her brother and people she went to school with.   However, she doesn't see Jackson but she does see his best friend and her own brother.  The people in the camp are put into groups to perform tasks.  

Like I said, Prentiss wants so bad to escape but hears from the others that if she does, it will be deadly.  To try and get closer and figure things out, she agrees to do extra work the cows.  Having worked with the vet she knows what she's doing but doesn't want to let her kidnappers know that.  The camp's leader is Cato.  Her brother, Gallatin, ends up coming to the camp and things develop between Prentiss and him. 

Will Gallatin be able to help her escape?  Does he share the same feelings or is there another motive for getting close to Prentiss? 

I completely enjoyed this book and it was an easy read.
