The Request by David Bell Book Review

Special thanks to Suzy Approved Book Tours for providing our copy of The Request by David Bell in exchange for an honest & fair review. 

I normally gravitate toward romantic novels but this thriller fell in my lap. OMG, you HAVE to read this book! I picked it up and could not put it down! Read it in two days.

Ryan is happily married and has a young baby. His life is on track and all is well until an old friend from college visits and makes a special request of him. It all goes downhill from there.


The Request by David Bell is a MUST read. I highly recommend it! 5 stars

Mom and reading addict who is easily sucked into binge-watching a good series. Really Into: outdoor concerts, greasy food, and hanging out with friends (preferably on a sunny day outside)
