  • Terrific Story!

    This story is filled with characters that are unique and multi-faceted. They all have very human faces – ones we could see on any street of any town or city. Their personalities unfold as the story progresses. The suspense that erupts at the beginning rumbles throughout like the distant sound of thunder. As Lydia discovers more pieces of the puzzle that is Joey, there are sudden bolts of lightning - yet far in the distance and not bright enough to see the whole picture. I did figure out fairly early on who was involved in throwing Lydia’s early life off track. In this particular book, figuring out ‘who’ isn’t the point – knowing, or at least suspecting, actually adds to the suspense. The main points are how and why - and where, if any, are the connections between the past and the present. The biggest surprise for me is that this is a debut novel. I would never have guessed. For me, the book read like one written by a well-seasoned writer. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys bookstores, libraries, booksellers, librarians, books, people who read books, and a well-written story that brings them all to life.

  • Too many gimmicks, too little action

    Repitition after repitition of how messed up main character is. Every single character is so full of quirks that I kept leaving the book until later due to frustration. Ridiculous number of coincdences. Then the central McGuffin - clues cut into books - is illustrated in the most eye-burningly annoying way possible. One time was enough. Every single time had me skipping page after page to the over the top conclusion. Waste of 20 bucks.

  • I love books so the title caught my eye.

    This book was edge of your seat reading. I guessed the hammer killer off the bat but it was nice to see it tied altogether. Lydia was a sweet girl that you like from day 1. I was not a fan of the ending. Each character is well developed. This is not my normal type of book. I normally would have passed on it but something in the title caught my eye. I couldn't put it down and read it in 3 days.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Falls short of potential

    Enjoyed, but took time to get into. Easy to put down. However, good plot that kept me involved. The clipped letter portions were a great idea, central, of course, but contributed less than they might have. Character development spotty which contributed to an overall fragmented feel - perhaps intentional?
