I didn't like the perspective change. There also were inconsistencies that I felt were jarring:
1. Catherine sees a spooky note that clearly shows someone is there but then argues with Pete about anyone else being there.
2. Pete mentioned they must have been in the cabin at least 30 min, which is plenty of time for someone to mess with the cars, but I felt like their interaction and brief conversation was more like five min, ten minutes tops.
3. How the heck does one sleep through someone being tortured in the next room? That's what it seems like but then later it seems maybe she was bludgeoned. And then we are told she was so badly treated she was in ICU and had a year of rehab to learn to speak and walk. If this serial killer tortures his victims why was Pete obviously tortured in a chair and we are given vague references about Catherines experience that seem to contradict each other. I don't need gory details but it's not clear what happened to Catherine. A scene before she woke up could help clarify things. And if she could call for help, albeit a "a raspy whisper" why did she have to learn to talk again?
4. The next day she crawls to a window and sees emergency vehicles and then after the perspective shift she's found outside? What? It doesn't make sense.
I did like the twist at the end. If the author addressed some of these discrepancies and expanded the story a little with some more suspense, it would be a great story.
It’s frequently stated that, “I didn’t want to put this book down”, and I can assure you that you will not be able to with this book. Just when I thought that her first short story, The Black Shadow, couldn’t be topped, she surprises me with this gem. Her writing style is smooth, flows nicely, and grabs you from the start to take you on a suspenseful journey.
Nobody’s Home is a fantastic read and one not to be missed.
This is a great short story that will give you a thrill and leave you wanting more.
