Pretty good book, held our interest in spite of being a bit predictable. The reader was good, although she sounded like she had something in her mouth.

SUPER slow start--I feel like it took me half the book to truly get into it. I was not at all a fan of the narrator. She was a bit dramatic and hard to listen to at times. Pretty good, overall.

Great book, a lot of family secrets being unraveled throughout the book making this one I couldn't stop listening to and found myself going out for a walk or run to get more time to listen to it.

This book had me at first, but after a while it just became predictable. The plot is quite obvious, although is really well written, I would say is enjoyable at most.

I really enjoyed this story and became very invested in the characters. It had me hooked from the first five minutes, and as a result when it was time to get out of my car for work, or when I got home, I had a hard time doing it. There were some loose ends for me at the end, but overall it was a great story that stayed with me after it was over.

Excellent book. It had the capacity to keep you interested from page one to the last page. Just when you thought you had it figured out, the twist would get you. I am interested to see if any of her other books are as good. I'd suggest it as a very good read. I've been reading since I was four yrs old so reading is not just a fun thing, I read daily. I have books on every device, on my floor by my chair and by my night stand. If I'm sitting down I'm reading something. Usually a mystery. Five stars

Weird how the book summary gives away the basic plot line. Not wise since the reader is not supposed to know the sister is alive until half way through the book. We are supposed to learn this along with Riley! Summary writers, you should be more careful! The book was enjoyable to listen to, but very predictable. I can't imagine a reader not guessing the true relationship right off the bat. To me, that is a major weakness in the book. Also the hatred of the brother toward the disappeared sister was not believable. He was too young when she disappeared to remember major difference in his parents. And since they still did their best for him, I just don't buy his extreme anger. Lots of weaknesses in the character development in this book; for that reason, I can't give it a very high rating. The narration, however, was very well done, as it is in most audio books.

It was a good story but I did predict who was who very early on. I love audiobooks on a long drive.
