The Elevator by Angela Hunt

The Christian market needs more suspense books like The Elevator, which is basically believable suspense.
This book tells the story of three women who get stuck in an elevator during a hurricane (I can relate to hurricanes since I live in Florida, so this may be a slightly biased review). One of them is a maid in the building, one is the confused mistress of a married man, and the other is the wife of the married man seeking revenge. But their plans for hurricane survival are halted as their escape route is cut off by lack of power. While three women sitting in an elevator for most of the book seems boring, it really is not. One of them holds a terrible secret.
The characters are good and believable. Since there aren't many, they all have a point.
The end is the farthest thing from predictable. Hunt went to extra mile with originality.
The only thing keeping this book from being five stars is the unnecessary romance at the end of the book.
But no matter, this book is definitely worthy of the Elite List.
4.5 stars
