I just happened to grab this book when I needed something to read in a hurry. I'm sure glad I picked it up! From the first chapter, I was hooked. I had to stay up all night to finish it. I'm eager to read more of her books.
Staub does it again by creating a heart-pounding page turner. This book had me captivated from the first page till the very end. A well written plot and developed characters, Staub has a unique way of grabbing your attention and holding it till the last page is turned.
Someone in Woodsbridge, a suburb of Buffalo, New York, is targeting young teenage girls who look a lot like Katie Carmody's daughter, Jen. But who? Is it the husband of Stella Galinski, the woman Jen babysits for? An elderly priest? Jen's father? A young drug dealer? And Katie has a secret of her own -- something somebody else knows which has to do with mysterious baby cries in the night and a gift-wrapped pink baby bootie left on Jen's pillow.
A great mystery and true pager turner. I didnt find it predictable at all, it kept me guessing until the end!!!
Woodsbridge, New York, is the sort of upscale community where the American Dream is alive and thriving - shiny cars, beautiful homes, and safe, tree-shaded streets. There are pools where kids splash each other gleefully, and soccer games where mums cheer their teenagers from the sidelines. For Kathleen Carmody, moving to Woodsbridge is an attempt to escape memories of her own rough childhood and a shattering secret that still haunts her. It's a place where her 13 year-old daughter, Jen, will have everything Kathleen didn't. But suddenly, the sleepy, affluent suburb is gripped by fear. One by one, teenage girls are disappearing from Woodbridge's "safe" streets. Someone wants what these charmed people have. Someone who will take what they love most. Someone who is targeting girls with long, blond hair and brown eyes...girls who look a lot like Jen. Someone who is watching and waiting for the moment when Kathleen drops her guard and kisses her daughter goodbye..
