Review: Come and Get Me: A Caitlin Bergman Novel by August Norman

Product Description:
At Indiana University, someone’s been studying the female student body: their dating customs, nocturnal activities—and how long they can survive in captivity.

When award-winning journalist Caitlin Bergman is invited back to campus to receive an honorary degree, she finds an opportunity for a well-earned victory lap—and a chance to face the trauma that almost destroyed her as an undergrad. But her lap becomes an all-out race when a student begs her to probe an unsolved campus disappearance: Angela Chapman went out one Friday night and never came back.

To find the missing woman, Caitlin must join forces with a local police detective and the department that botched her own case so long ago. But while Caitlin follows the clues behind Angela’s disappearance, someone else is following her…

Unearthing secrets hidden beneath an idyllic Midwestern college town, Caitlin must expose what really happened to Angela—before she herself becomes the newest addition to a twisted collection.

My Thoughts:
I am a huge fan of suspense thrillers but as much as I tried I could not get into this book at all. From the very beginning I just wasn't pulled into the story but I was committed to a review so I kept reading. About a third of the way in I just said screw it and skipped the whole next third of the book and picked up at about the last third. Honestly other than some minor details of what went on, I wasn't at all lost and just kept right on reading. Luckily the last third had a little more action to sustain the book but at the end of the date the book isn't one that I'd recommend. 

My Recommendation:
Sadly, I say pass on this one. There are way too many books out there to waste time with this one.
