He knows the one thing that would destroy me would be to separate me from my daughter…

Catherine Clarke defied her family’s expectations when she married Gabriel, a handsome Lebanese businessman. After moving to Gabriel’s homeland and welcoming a baby daughter, Catherine knew she had to acclimate herself to the strange new world. Yet both her husband and her surroundings became more volatile and threatening than she could have ever imagined.

When Gabriel forbids her to return to the States, Catherine devises a plan to deceive him, but she vastly underestimates how far he will go to punish her. And after her daughter, Ann Marie, is abducted and taken deep into the mountains of Beirut—protected by family, culture, and law—the only thing on Catherine’s side is the fierceness of a mother’s love. She’s prepared to move heaven and earth to find her child.

Told from alternating points of view—that of a daughter whose past is a mystery and of a mother with painful secrets to share—this profoundly moving story of impossible risks will resonate with anyone whose love has no boundaries.

My thoughts about No Time To Blink ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First lines—"As I reach the attorney's office on the thirtieth floor, I'm disappointed by my reflection in the large glass panels that make up the entrance. My shoulders are slumped, and there are dark circles underneath my blue eyes. Nothing ages you like stress and sadness."

No Time To Blink is an exciting tale that shows that a mother's love can and will accomplish amazing things. Catherine is swept off her feet by a handsome but mysterious man—they are so in love. Soon after they are married, he moves them back to his home country. Then the trouble begins for Catherine. She is basically held hostage in her own home and someone is tailing her whenever she leaves the house. All she wants is to get back home to her family and to take her daughter with her.

Ann Marie, the daughter, remembers nothing about the life that involved her mother and father when she was so very young. As the story goes back and forth between the past and the present, we come to understand how Catherine's life and Ann Marie's life were affected by that time in Beirut.

No Time to Blink is a riveting story that you will want to keep reading. It has strong and wonderful characters who demonstrate the depth and power of love. I think Dina's books just keep getting better and better with each one she writes and this one is definitely a must read!

I received a copy of No Time To Blink from NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.
