3 out of 5 (good)
Saving Zoe is the story of a young girl who is unwillingly involved in the sex trafficking business. She is rescued and tries to get on with her life, becoming a border guard to try and help prevent more girls from going through the same experiences she had. When her niece is taken, the nightmare she lived through becomes once again the life she is living.
The story behind this book is a good one, a dark horrible one without question, but still a good one. However, the execution of the story left something to be desired for me. The writing style is quite clipped and almost clinical, so there was nothing really to connect to. Instead of losing myself in the book, I 'knew' that I was reading a story. Whilst I finished - and mainly enjoyed - this book, it is not a series that I will be continuing with.
