Child kidnapped, murdered, causes the breakup of the marriage or does it?
Child returns from the dead or does she?
Revenge on the parents or is it?
Not too hard to figure out but it's an easy read.

This book had kind of an interesting concept. It was a little creepy.
I thought I figured out whodunit, then I thought I didn't, then I thought I did!
It has a twist that twists back on itelf.
Good read.

I was very surprised at the content for this book. This is the first book I have read of Carlene Thomas which prompted me to read others, that's how much I enjoyed it. A tragedy hits a family hard when a little girl in abducted and later the mother and father identify remains that are suppossed to belong to this child. I'm not going into specific detail cause I don't want to spoil the book but I was really surprised with this ending but it was good.
Basically, family splits up after child abduction and move on with their lives then crazy things start happening to people in the community including the mother and her new family. Lots of freaky twists. Read this book it's pretty good.

This story felt very dated and contrived. I thought it had a strong opening, and I enjoyed the authors comedic scenes with Caroline's new family, but once all the coincidences start up 20 years after Caroline lost her 5-year-old daughter, it just felt very contrived and implausible and lost my interest.

I give this one a C.

Awesome book- you are hooked from the first page, the characters are very realistic and by the time you are finished they all feel like old friends. Twists and turns to the very end- very unexpected ending.
