Review: The Teller by Jonathan Stone

Product Description:
Between her low-paying job as a bank teller and the high costs of caring for her terminally ill mother, Elaine Kelly is struggling to make ends meet. When one of her regular customers, Antonio Desirio – a lonely old man with no family or friends who has saved over a million dollars in his account – is hit by a truck outside the bank after making his weekly deposit, Elaine impulsively switches the money into her own account, figuring she’ll be long gone by the time the crime is discovered.

The problem? Antonio wasn’t just some lonely old man, and the hit-and-run was no accident. From New York’s darkest corners to its loftiest financial towers, Elaine’s problems are just beginning, and it will take all of her wits and determination to solve them.

My Thoughts: 
Elaine Kelly had an opportunity and took it. Being a trusted teller in the bank she knew just what to do not to get caught but instead of taking the money and running off she stuck around planning what she wanted to do until it was too late. 

Then once she found herself in real trouble she had to make the most of her situtation to ensure the bad guys paid for their dirty deeds and save herself along with a newly made friend. 

Any time lotto jackpots exceed the hundred million mark I start day dreaming about what I would do if I won even if I don't buy a ticket so I can see how Elaine got caught up in the planning instead of the running. The things she has to do to survive makes the ending that much more sweeter. The Teller is a page turner all the way to the end. I devoured the book in under two days and it has now taken the top spot as my number 1 read of 2015. 

My Recommendation: I highly recommend this one for anyone who loves a good suspense tale.
