  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 2/6/2014

    " I did and didn't like it at the same time. It was a page turner- I kept wondering what would happen next. However, I found Nancy to be pretty pathetic and I predicted who was behind the children's disappearance fairly early. The child molestation angle made me feel creepy and uncomfortable. Not sure I would recommend it, but I am not bummed that I took the time to read it. "

    " This was definitely a page-turner, and I read it in no time at all. It's hard, with books like this, to really develop the characters, so that was a bit unfortunate. The ending was a bit too tidy for me, as well. I enjoyed it, overall, though. Who doesn't love a good suspense/thriller? "
