    An airport, a chance meeting, an unforgettable, secretive woman, a woman who is actually missing, tells lies, and doesn?t care who she involves or hurts. Joshua saw a woman in the bar and knew she needed some help just by the way she was acting so he canceled his plans with his fa...

    A suspense-filled, fast-paced book that had me flipping the pages to find out what was going to happen. Layover is entertaining storytelling at its best! The book switches smoothly between Joshua Fields, an All-American guy working in a job he hates, flying on planes he?s terrifie...

    Layover opens on an ingenious setup: a chance, romantic meeting in an airport with a woman who turns out to be missing. Bell starts with a bang then dials up the suspense to full-throttle, lobbing twist after twist that will test Joshua and his conflicting loyalties. Smart and highly a...

    I've read another book by David Bell and liked his writing style. This book grabbed my attention from the start. I thought it was a clever premise...two strangers meet by chance in an airport and are intrigued with one another but all is not what it seems. The first part of the book...

    This was a struggle for me. I really enjoyed Bring Her Home and Somebody's Daughter by David Bell. I think they are fantastic and recommend them if you have not read one of his books before. But unfortunately, this book did not work for me. In all honesty, I read the first fifty percen...

    Say, 3.5 stars? First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, David Bell, and Berkley Publishing Group for providing me with a copy of this publication, which allows me to provide you with an unbiased review. Being an avid traveller and a great fan of thriller novels, I was...

    ???? / 5 rounded down Sigh, I really, REALLY wanted to love Layover by David Bell but unfortunately that was not the case. I still really enjoyed it, but it was nowhere near the love I was hoping to feel for this book. What it's about: Joshua Fields has his life down to ...

    There's a touch of edge-of-seatness in this book to be sure, but I'd describe it more as a coming of age character study than a spine-tingling thriller. And I admit it's a bit of a stretch when it comes to believability; but then again, this is a work of fiction - so whether it could h...

    I am honestly shocked that this was described as a high concept thriller in the blurb. It's not even close to high concept. It's not even thrilling, for that matter. Perhaps I'm smoking something different than the rest, but I found this book to be amateurish and annoying. The h...

    Strangers just being strange........ David Bell slides this one into an airport setting in Atlanta heading for Tampa. The crowded concourses are alive with the bustle of people short on time and short on patience. Joshua Fields finds himself in a gift shop not far from his depart...

    Having travelled a fair bit, with lots of lengthy boring layovers at different international airports, I was very intrigued about the premise of this novel. It is true that strange intimacies can occur between travellers during those dislocated moments, and we may confide things to a c...

    I'm a huge fan of David Bell. Most of the books I've read of his has centered around daughters so color me intrigued when I get something a little different with The Layover. Joshua meets Morgan in the airport and their brief, but intriguing, conversation causes him to stop playing it ...

    Crafty, complex, and unpredictable! Layover is a character-driven whodunit featuring the reckless and determined Joshua Fields as he throws caution to the wind and leaves his ordinary life behind to do whatever it takes to find the missing, enigmatic Morgan Reynolds who seems to hav...

    I won this book in a goodreads drawing. A guy having a quarter life crisis in quiet desperation sees a woman in an airport during a layover. He chucks everything and goes after her, and gets in way over his head. It's much like an old Gold Medal novel with a 21 century gloss. It's p...

    You know what I really liked about this book? Actually I liked quite a few things. First of all, David Bell is a great writer. His characterizations are excellent, I felt like I really knew Joshua, Morgan, and the determined and persistently hungry Detective Givens. **Small aside: ...

    Layover is the second book I've read by David Bell and both times I have been fully engrossed in the plot and the characters until halfway through the book. At that point, Bell loses me. For someone who reads as much as I do, I know that often there is a lull in the story line midway t...

    I really enjoyed the first half or so of the book but my interest started to go downhill from that point on. For the most part though, I did like how the author chose to wrap the story up as I don't think he went the conventional route. The ending for me helped push this book back into...

    David Bell is one of my favorite authors, and although I did like this book, it felt a little flat to me. It was more of a thriller than his usual domestic suspense (which I love), but seemed to drag a bit toward the middle. The action picked up in the last third of the book, and I lik...
