I have never read Scottoline before and I now know why. This was selected for our book club so I felt an obligation to read it. The book's beginning has some promise but then goes downhill and becomes downright outlandish when Rose (the main character) drops her kids off with friends and turns into super hero/Nancy Drew uncovering a conspiracy, cover-up and solving a murder. I thought this book was completely farfetched and unrealistic and the trivial conversation was annoying. Scottoline should have stuck with her original plot - the explosion, its aftermath, and the effects on the community.

Brilliant story line, however, that is what makes the very poor execution so disappointing. The story is filled with conflicting details and flat, stereotypical characters.

Defiantly do not recommend this. I feel like the climax happens I the first chapter. Not like her other books, very disappointing. Too far-fetched, way too drawn out. The book would be half as long without the constant, repeating, minute descriptions... She thumbed through her contact to L, pressed call and held the phone to her ear... Really? Do I need to know exactly how she makes a phone call, every time she does it? Don't waste your time.

A novel packed with excitement and emotion. Fast paced. If you are a parent it's a story that will make you stop and & ask yourself how far would you go to save your child before another. This is a story about a mom who volunteered as a lunch room mom, children who bully others & a fire. Mom is accused of saving her child while sacrificing another. Then facing the after effects of what can happen when you are in charge of children in a setting such as this. It has many unexpected twists and turns & a lot of suspense. I flew thru the pages.
