Search For Maylee by Didi Oviatt is a wonderfully written thriller that combines psychological suspense, action, character growth, and terror. Oviatt does a remarkable job of creating a narrative that is compelling, with the reader always wanting to know what is coming next. Oviatt builds the story, focusing in on the main character Autumn and her search for her missing niece, Maylee.
Oviatt creates a protagonist about whom the reader cares; we become invested in her struggle and her anguish as she continues looking for her missing niece, even as she is told there is nothing more to be done. Autumn is a driven person, one who will not let anyone or anything keep her from achieving her goal.
This tale is not only a riveting piece of story-telling, but also it deals with an important contemporary issue that is all too frequently over-looked—the abduction of young women and girls.
From Autumn’s inner emotional turmoil to her dedication and determination to find her niece, Oviatt takes us on a wild ride, one that will keep the reader turning the pages to find out what happens next. Didi Oviatt is a writer to follow!
I give this book 5 stars, and I recommend that anyone reading this review get a copy of this excellent book!
