Synopsis: ‘Sixteen-year-old Sami hasn’t seen her mother in ten years—and neither has anyone else. The police suspect Sami’s father had something to do with her mom’s disappearance, but Sami’s never believed that. Her mother chose to abandon her and start a new life. It’s that simple.
Yet now, new evidence has emerged about another missing woman who used to be involved with Sami’s dad. Coincidence—or evidence that the cops have been right all along?
As Sami investigates on her own, she’s forced to question everything she thought she knew about the dad who’s always been there for her and the mother who supposedly abandoned her. And if her dad didn’t kill her mother, what did happen?’
This is an intriguing story. I was enthralled with the mystery and needed to figure out what happened. Of course the only way to do this was to keep reading. I was more than glad to do this.
While I enjoyed the mystery in this novel, at times the author could be a tad overlong with the descriptions and this made the book seem like it was dragging. The pace varied throughout, but in a way that made the book seem like it was very fast or very slow. I was also able to predict part of the answer, not all. There was a little surprise that did not occur to me and that kept the book interesting.
Despite those little annoying things (they never became large annoying things), I enjoyed reading this novel. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes mysteries.
