Getaway; Lisa Brackmann

GetawayGetaway by Lisa Brackmann
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Yet another reason to not have a one-night stand:  recent widow Melissa is on vacation in Puerto Vallarta, where she meets Danny and, well, one thing leads to another.  Which leads to a midnight robbery in which Danny is hurt and their cell phones being accidentally switched, and suddenly Melissa is drawn into a situation about which she has no idea who is safe, who is lying, who she can trust and what is going on.

The level of suspense plateaus quickly and doesn't abate, but at no point does Melissa seem to find the nous to figure out what's going on and how to deal with it.  She's more of a ping pong ball, bouncing between event and event, betrayal and betrayal - some character growth would have been nice.
