Traps by Mackenzie Bezos
In this tautly woven tour de force, the paths of four very different women intersect, briefly but significantly, in ways that will change each of them forever. Dana is a beautiful young security guard trained in special ops who can disarm a bomb or suture a wound but is terrified of committing to the man she loves. Lynn is a fiercely independent older woman living alone in Nevada and running a ranch for rescued dogs. Jessica is a reclusive movie star and mother of two whose father keeps selling her out to the paparazzi. Vivian is a seventeen-year-old prostitute who will do anything to protect her twin babies. Bezos brings deep intelligence and rich texture to her portraits of four women whose fates, though only tangentially connected, are linked in miraculous ways.
