What would you do if street thugs invaded your home? What if you’re a daycare provider, caring for a dozen children at the time? Lisa Kaamp, a most unlikely heroine, faces just such a nightmare in This Time You Lose, the suspense driven story of one woman’s struggle to survive when she and the children she cares for become victims of a home invasion gone terribly wrong.
Lisa Kaamp operates a small childcare business out of her home in Nogeksum, Michigan. Highly respected and known for going the extra mile for her daycare kids, she thinks she’s handled every daycare emergency possible. But nothing prepares her for the horror she now faces.
Lisa finds herself bound and gagged, four strange men in her home, and the daycare children held hostage in the next room. Terrorized by her captors as the authorities work to meet the ransom deadline, she tries negotiating with the men for the release of the children, but soon realizes they have no intention of letting anyone go.
With the deadline approaching, Lisa must do the unimaginable to protect the children and get everyone out alive.
One of the MANY five star reviews!
I just finished “This Time You Lose”. It kept me on the edge of my seat and couldnt put it down until I finished late last night. (which didnt go over well at work today /yawn).
Anyway, I recently purchased a new kindle and have been knocking out many of the so called “Best Sellers” or “Top Authors” and let me tell you, this ranks right up there with the best of them. With so many books I feel at first lost waiting for a book to start making sense, where you can understand totally whats going on and feeling a part of the story. Well “This Time You Lose” grabbed me from the first page until the last, with excellent charactor creation she made the reader understand, sympathize, and totally relate to each and every charactor from beginning to end. This gets 5s all the way. I look forward to more by this very talented author. – Stephen C. Doran
