From Readers’ Favorite

The Package by Heidi Slowinski keeps you engaged from beginning to end. Noa is a travel blogger who is and has been since childhood a spy thriller junkie. On a trip to Vancouver, Noa is caught up in a series of mysterious surprises. First, there is an upgraded flight, followed by a driver and car waiting for her when she arrives. Although odd, these unexpected occurrences are celebrated blessings. But, things become really weird when she finds a puzzling note inside her jacket pocket. After doing her morning walk through the market, enjoying her favorite places to eat, curiosity gets the better of her. Noa decides to check out the location written on the strange note. Once she arrives, everything turns into a rollercoaster of espionage. Placed in her care is a package. Is this her biggest mistake or her grandest mission in life? In an instant, Noa becomes the heroine in her own spy thrilling adventure.

Heidi Slowinski’s The Package baits you with its captivating narrative hook and then page by page reels you into the mystery. Immediately, you wonder if the female protagonist is naïve or stealthily playing a part. Nevertheless, she is fun, intelligent, and certainly intriguing. The fast-paced plot flows with ease from the backstories of the past into the action of the present. It doesn’t linger long in any one place or time setting. While the narrative unfolds quickly, it is penned with planned precision, somewhat like gingerly ripping off a Band-Aid. The conflict is controlled and without lengthy or wordy complexities. The supporting cast of characters is written with just enough description to hone and sharpen the growth of the heroine. It is a rare gift to tell a compelling story with only a few chapters. Heidi Slowinski masters the elements of a well-written novella. The Package is a thrilling adventure that leaves you catching your breath in awe and wonder.
