I added so many books to my summer reading list this year that I may still be reading the last of them by Christmas! One of those books was Innocent Labor by Monica Gloria--and after less than a day--I'm ready to share it with everyone! What was my review of Innocent Labor by Monica Gloria.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for use in my review. All opinions are my own.
Quick Summary of Innocent Labor by Monica Gloria. Elena is a survivor--and no stranger to the cruelty that lurks in the shadows of society. Caught up in the search for a missing student, she must face the increasing violence head on and find the strength to overcome her own past. Time is running out. Too many children have recently been reported missing, for this latest disappearance to be a coincidence. Invitations for a special auction have already been sent and buyers are gathering. Elena's fierce determination to save a young girl sets off a chain of events that leads to the same man who orchestrated Elena's own vicious kidnapping. Will justice triumph in Elena's crusade to save other innocent victims from the same fate she was forced to endure?
The author creates characters and a storyline that readers will not want to leave. This book is a really quick and easy read with very well done characters and pages of thrills to keep readers engaged and turning the pages. The author does a wonderful job pulling readers into Elena's story in the very beginning and keeps the book moving at a pace that holds attention to the very end. It's not a series, but I certainly found myself sad to leave the main character and her story.
Monica Gloria creates awareness of a real world problem with her fictional story. I love a fictional story that pulls readers into a real world problem. Human trafficking is real--and, while Gloria writes about fictitious characters and events in Innocent Labor--the story serves to remind (and even inform readers) of a terrifying world hidden in plain sight.
Would I recommend Innocent Labor by Monica Gloria? If you enjoy thrillers based in reality--this book should be added to your reading list. The author doesn't lose sight of the storyline, emotions or character development as she moves readers fairly quickly through the book. Innocent Labor is a very well written novel and I look forward to reading more from this author.
