Jill Farrow is thrilled to find some sort of normalcy returning after her divorce. For her and her daughter Megan, things are looking up. Jill loves her job as a Physician, spending time with her active daughter Megan, and the new man in her life Sam.
Then one evening Jill’s world turns upside down when the daughter of her ex, shows up on her doorstep, with news that Jill’s ex is dead, even presumed murdered. Jill promises a very scared Abby that she will do everything she can to help find out what happened to Abby’s dad. What she starts to uncover just doesn’t add up.
Jill’s obsession with the mystery starts to take a toll on her relationship with her own daughter Megan, as well as Sam, but Jill can’t quit now…. and some people feel she is getting just a little too close to the truth for comfort…
This is my first Lisa Scottoline and I have to come out and say that it was not what I had hoped for. I liked Jill, but this was one of those reads where all the supporting characters never felt fully there to me. Her two ex step daughters Abby and the extremely ornery Victoria were just different and I never fully pictured what the looked like in my mind.
Sam was a back seat participant in the whole read and when he did have an opinion, it was small and did not matter to me one way or another. In the end, I truly did not feel like I connected with any part of the book. 12 CDS long it also felt just a little too drawn out.
I really wish I could say more positive things about this one but in the end I felt empty.
