I couldn't get into this one. It was a good thing it was wishlisted, so I was able to send it on to someone who hopefully liked it better than I did.

Angie, the missing sister is a thoroughly unlikeable person though it's just through third person knowledge as she appears only once in the entire book. She's a drug addict, an alcoholic and a chronic protester. On the other hand, Dana, the good daughter, is devoted to the family and when Angie's daughter's life is in danger (cancer) is determined to find Angie and bring her home to own up to her mistakes.

The town Angie lived in is filled with unpleasant people and Dana has a very hard time trying to get anyone (including the sheriff) to help search for Angie. There's some kind of conspiracy going on that even the new sheriff is unaware of and that Angie somehow got in the middle of which of course, leaves lots of suspects.

There is instant attraction between Dana and Jay (the sheriff) which is really the only thing keeping me reading. The supporting characters are horribly rude and ignorant and Dana's super rich mother likes to throw her weight around (via telephone) which is very annoying. I know she's Dana's mother but just once, I wanted Dana to tell her to shut up.
