Kate Conway is going through a divorce when her husband dies unexpectedly. When the police investigate, they believe Kate may have had something to do with it. To add to the stress, her ex-husband’s new girlfriend seems to want to become friends.
After the funeral, Kate lands a new job for a television show called Missing Persons. It’s a nice distraction. Theresa Moretti has been missing for a year. All she needs is 22 minutes of footage for the show, but when her case seems to intersect with Kate’s husband’s death. Kate feels rushed to finish the job before there is another body, her own.
This was an interesting little read though I found it to be more of a contemporary novel than a mystery. This novel is marketed as a mystery, and there are two separate mysteries but in my honest opinion it was more about the life of Kate Conway as she deals with her career and the death of her husband.
I liked this novel but I would have preferred more of a mystery as that is what I was expecting.
The character of Kate Conway is well constructed, though I had an extremely hard time relating to her. I believe that is because we have next to nothing in common.
The settings are fairly simple and yet easy to follow and picture in your mind.
All in all, it was a decent read, though lacking on the mystery. I would give this novel 3 out of 5 stars and would recommend it to fans of contemporary fiction.
I bought my copy of this novel from my local Dollar Tree and the picture featured above is my own.
