Baker & Taylor
After a kidnapper uses a fake summer-camp bus to abduct four children and demand a million-dollar ransom, the different sets of parents are at odds with each other as to what to do, all while an accident incapacitates the kidnapper and the children are forced to fend for themselves in the woods. A first novel.

Simon and Schuster
An innocent rite of passage turns into a nightmare for four couples, exposing their secrets and risking the lives of their children. 

After passing the bittersweet parental milestone of putting her daughter, Sarah on the bus to sleep-away camp for the first time, Lena Trainor plans to spend the next two weeks fixing all the problems in her marriage. But when a second bus arrives to pick up Sarah for camp, no one seems to know anything about the first bus or its driver. 

Sarah and three other children have been kidnapped, and within hours of the crime the parents receive an email demanding $1,000,000. When the specifics of the delivery terms throw suspicion on the parents of two of the abducted children, some of the parents begin to turn on each other, exposing fault lines in already strained marriages and forging new alliances. While the kidnapped children are living their parents' worst nightmare, the police are trying to sort the lies from the truth in conflicting stories and alibis that seem to be constantly changing. 

Deftly weaving the emotional story that pits the parents of the missing campers against the police—and each other—with the fate of the kidnapped children hanging in the balance, Never Wave Goodbye will keep readers holding their breath until the last page.

I wish they would show the cover - it would make the book look more interesting. I really liked it, very suspenseful but a quick read.
