the publisher for an ARC via NetGalley If you re like me and this book catches your fancy because Claire Kendal s debut, The Book Of You, made your skin crawl in the clever way only a true

there are way too many ideas competing here than an intelligent investigation Who knows, maybe that was the feeling the author was going for Right from the start, the story is incredibly slow Claire Kendal takes a lot of time laying the groundwork and introducing the characters When we meet Ella, the ten year anniversary of her sister s disappearance is days away and for some reason, now is the time she wants to get serious about finding answers There isn t much interaction from the police but a cold case wouldn t garner much attention now, would it it s simply Ella using her own amateur sleuthing skills that often rely on convenience or silly realizations Have I mentioned how much I despise cheap plot devices The entire time we re in Ella s head and she s working to uncover the truth, she s having conversations with her missing sister and it s confusing especially when she s in the middle of a scene where there s dialogue with another character More than a few times, I found myself rereading sections just to grasp who Ella was actually talking to Talking to you has been my way of keeping you alive, keeping you present even in your absence What managed to intrigue me eventhan Miranda s disappearance which I realize is kind of silly considering this isn t a romance novel was Ted and Ella Somehow these high school sweethearts managed to carry a burning torch for one

aspects of the ending I liked, those having to do with Ella s nephew, but that s the extent of it I felt the person behind her sister s demise was too obvious Despite all of the distractions floating around the jealous friend, the serial killer, the cop impersonator, the psychiatrist, her nephew s father, the unidentified caller and her former lover I was able to pinpoint the culprit the moment Ella laid eyes on that person for the first time If she was so clever, why couldn t she And the person s motivesweak.Overall, not the experience I had hoped for, but not the worst book I ve ever laid
