What would you do if street thugs invaded your home? What if you’re a daycare provider, caring for a dozen children at the time? Lisa Kaamp, a most unlikely heroine, faces just such a nightmare in This Time You Lose, the suspense driven story of one woman’s struggle to survive when she and the children she cares for become victims of a home invasion gone terribly wrong.
Lisa Kaamp operates a small childcare business out of her home in Nogeksum, Michigan. Highly respected and known for going the extra mile for her daycare kids, she thinks she’s handled every daycare emergency possible. But nothing prepares her for the horror she now faces.
Lisa finds herself bound and gagged, four strange men in her home, and the daycare children held hostage in the next room. Terrorized by her captors as the authorities work to meet the ransom deadline, she tries negotiating with the men for the release of the children, but soon realizes they have no intention of letting anyone go.
With the deadline approaching, Lisa must do the unimaginable to protect the children and get everyone out alive.
What they’re saying about it:
This is the story of a burglary that goes horribly wrong.Lisa is a daycare owner and a much liked person in her neighbourhood but things take a turn for the worse when her home is invaded one night.Brilliantly written story which is full of tension and has very likeable characters (especially Lisa & Jeff).Well recommended book for anyone who enjoys a good tense,action packed thrills.
I felt as if I’d held my breath while reading this story until the very end – phew – not being sure what was going to happen next. It was certainly fast-paced, filled to the brim with action and extremely well-written. I also thought it was a wonderful exploration of what constitutes as evil – and Lisa found it in spades. That’s all I will say about the plot, I don’t give spoilers, but if you like suspense and to sprint along with the characters at a an amazing pace, then you’ll love this tale of right and wrong and how to be strong in the face of such wickedness. Recommended.
