Rating: 3/5 Stars
Synopsis from Goodreads: When Michael Frazier's ex-wife, Erica, shows up on his doorstep pleading for help, she drops a bombshell that threatens to rip his family apart: Erica's nine-year-old daughter is missing--and Michael is the father. Unable to quickly determine if Erica is telling the truth, and unwilling to leave the little girl's fate to chance, Michael has no choice but to follow the elusive trail of the child he has always wanted and never knew he had. But finding Felicity comes at a price--the closer Michael gets to the truth, the further into jeopardy his marriage falls and the faster his family begins to unravel. As lies that span a decade bubble to the surface and the window for Felicity's safe return closes, Michael will have just a few short days to decide who can be trusted and who is hiding the truth.
My Review: There were a lot of things I liked about this book but there were a couple things that really bugged me too. The book is very well written and fast paced to keep you reading. The story is an interesting one full of lots of little twists that reveal themselves slowly. I also liked the characters and thought they were well done. What I didn’t like was that the book had quite a few parts that I felt didn’t need to be there. There were too many view points that weren’t necessary to the story. I get throwing in one or two to throw the reader off the scent of the real story but this took it to far. For example, we get the view point of the cops investigating the disappearance and we get back story on them as well. I just felt like that didn’t need to be there and the author added it simply to bulk up the book.
