    What was she thinking with this ending?

    I bought this book in a Barnes & Noble store with a gift card. When I came home & read the reviews I figured it would be awful. But it¿s not. Sarah Mason is a county prosecutor. Seven years ago her 5 year old daughter, Lexie, was kidnapped. When all else failed, Sarah turned to PI Jake Hogan to help in the search. Over the years they became best friends but at some time Jake realized he wanted more although Sarah was oblivious. Sarah allows herself no pleasures, barely eating or sleeping and throws all into her job. Her house is barely furnished. She doesn¿t feel she should have any happiness as she didn¿t know what Lexie had suffered. Sarah thinks she should be punished for Lexie¿s kidnapping because she should have been able to do something. Now she¿s a victim of a violent crime and begins receiving phone calls, etc. supposedly from or involving Lexie. Jake was an alpha male but not obnoxious about it, and was a softie at heart. OK, I have to admit Sarah didn¿t sound real attractive considering she was 5¿4¿ and 103 lbs, that¿s borderline skeletal. I¿m not quite 5¿1¿ and weigh 106. Also Jake¿s affairs with ever younger blond bimbos smacked of a mid life crisis. His current was 25 to his 39. A couple more years and she would have literally been young enough to be his daughter! Ick! But his devotion to, and love for, Sarah was touching and he did all he could do to protect and care for her. And yes Lexie was mentioned a lot but the story revolved around her kidnapping so that was understandable. However, the ending was absolutely ridiculous and unbelievable. It was as if the writer wanted to wrap everything up in a pretty bow at the end instead of following the rhythm of the rest of the book. This nearly ruined the whole book for me! If Chapter 25 would have been left out it would have been a five.

    This is a Good Reading

    This book was good. It was my first Karen Robards book, but the book was a page turner. Those who were left 'in the loop' might want to re-read the book to better understand what the scenes were. it happens sometimes, and some people just need to go back and re-evaluate what portion of the scene needs more attention than the other.

    A reviewer

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was a little disappointed in the ending. I wanted to know more about what happen once everything was out in the open. I really hope that the characters in this book appear again in another book so that we can see what happens.
