The Edge of Normal by Carla Norton

In many ways, Reeve LeClaire looks like a typical twenty-two year old girl. She’s finally landed her own apartment, she waitresses to pay the bills, and she wishes she wasn’t so nervous around new people. She thinks of herself as agile, not skittish. As serious, not grim. But Reeve is anything but normal. 

Ten years ago, she was kidnapped and held captive. After a lucky escape, she’s spent the last six years trying to rebuild her life, a recovery thanks in large part to her indispensable therapist Dr. Ezra Lerner. But when he asks her to help another girl rescued from a similar situation, Reeve realizes she may not simply need to mentor this young victim—she may be the only one who can protect her from a cunning predator who is still out there, watching every move.

This was another one that Kari and I both started, but only *I* finished....because Kari is PICKY!!  Just kidding Kari!  But this was a good book!!

Reeve LeClaire was kidnapped when she was a teenager, but was rescued through an unusual set of circumstances.  Now, years later, she is somewhat of an expert on the subject and her therapist asks her to help with another young girl that has gone through a similar situation.  She is able to see the case through unique eyes and doesn't accept what is going on.  She goes looking for her own answers and is shocked by what she finds.

I liked the characters in this book.  Reeve was really fun to read.  I'm glad to see that Carla Norton seems to have written another book featuring this character.  What Doesn't Kill Her came out in June of 2015.  I'm going to have to make a point of checking that one out.  Definitely recommend this one for all those readers that like the dark and twisty thrillers.
