Finally, I got to an Amazon First Reads book early enough in the month to review it before the month is over. This was my pick for June 2018 and I don’t think I could be happier with my choice.
Each chapter switches between Greer and Meredith’s point of view. Meredith has been taken from the grocery store, phone, keys, and wallet left in her still running car with the driver door wide open.
From Greer’s perspective, we see everything she tries to do to find her sister. She endures some grueling days with Meredith’s husband, Andrew. She never got along with him and still sees his stoicism as a sign he could be guilty.
From Meredith’s perspective, we see snippets of her life since she married Andrew. Almost every month we get another look into her life and the acts that led to her kidnapping.
Meredith’s disappearance makes all these questions arise in hopes that it will eventually lead to where she could be or who took her. Greer learns that she wasn’t as close to her sister as she thought. Everyone is a suspect and every piece of information is taken with some doubt.
I had a lot of fun reading this book. There were often times Greer would question things she was told and I could resonate with all her thoughts. She was characterized brilliantly and asked questions and received information in the way I would expect an over-protective sister to do.
Meredith’s story was interesting too. I always liked to see there is more to a trophy wife. Meredith never saw herself that way. She knew she loved her husband and believed he loved her. But she was also aware of their age difference and how others may view their relationship.
My favorite character probably has to be Harris. Mostly because I feel like I could use a friend like that in my life. Meredith turns to Harris when she has marriage troubles in hopes of him being a nonbiased voice of reason. Harris, her sister’s ex-boyfriend that she never really got along with but tolerated because of her sister’s feelings. Harris is horribly honest and helpful in getting Meredith to see what she wants. I totally want a Harris for myself as I could totally use a friend that will listen to all my relationship drama and spit back a simple solution. Granted, I still probably won’t take the advice but it would be nice to have a sounding board.
This book kept me guessing and I loved the thrill of it all. Between the search for Meredith, learning more about her, finding out who took her, and Greer working the case avidly, I couldn’t really stop reading this.
