What was most disappointing about Jenny Milchman’s story?
Bare with me- I'm going to try to explain what is off about this book ...This story is very abrasive. Not in a gritty, shocking way that you would expect of this genre, but in a way that the author doesn't provide you with the right background to understand some of the major events and characters. Usually part of the suspense is when your mind is racing through different possibilities as you click the puzzle pieces into place... I definitely didn't get that rush from this book. I felt like all the facts were just tossed out of the book with empty white fluff in between.
Furthermore, I am 3/4 of the way through the book and I still feel like it is just a marriage gone wrong with an endless custody battle. The main character married a radical environmentalist who runs off with their kids to live in the wild in some cult-ish community. Instead of breaking down every door between her and her kids, she searches the internet, plays in her garden, and stares off into the distance worrying about her kids. Jeez-louise... and when she does find people that "know" something about her husbands past, she politely begs them to tell her what they know. They refuse. She sniffles and walks away. Pathetic. If someone was standing between me and my kids, you can be sure they would be duck taped to a chair until they told me what they knew! Jeepers.
If you like true mystery/thriller/crime, don't waste your time on this one. B.O.R.I.N.G

I've always had a policy to finish any book that I start, but after getting through this, I've changed my mind. It's not that the book is bad, more that it is just not very good. What sounded like a great suspense novel turns out to be a flat, poorly developed waste of time. Skip this one.
