A little slow moving for me and the relationship seemed a little forced. It took me a week to ge through the first 250 pages and two days to get throught the last 150. The pace picks up and the end is so worth the read.

Mediocre suspense novel - ultimately left me disappointed. This book definitely had twists and turns throughout the story. And the story itself was interesting enough to keep me reading it. A girl and her sister abducted; only the girl returns. That said, I have to admit that I figured out the final twist about half-way through the book. The author did her best to throw the read off-track, adding a detail here or there that makes you re-think who it might be.

Excellent story. Kept me in suspense right up to the final pages. i usually figure them out before the mystery ends but not this one. Karen Harper out did herself on this one.

I really enjoyed this book...this is the first I've read by Harper. The plot was good...two sisters abducted but only one returns...is the other sister dead? I would definitely recommend this book. -Mirah W.

I really enjoyed this book. It is about two sisters who are kidnapped, one is returned, the other is not. Fast forward 16 years. The returned sister starts searching for what happened to her sister. While I had an inkling who the "bad" guys were, there was a true twist at the end.

On Jenna Kirk's 16th birthday the day of her first kiss from her longtime crush, Mace MacCamon, her charismatic older sister's boyfriend Jenna and her sister, Mandi, are abducted from the yard of their home in a Midwestern quarry town. Several days later, Jenna alone is found wandering in her grandfather's stone forest of eerie carvings, drugged, with her memory gone. Fifteen years later, Jenna returns to uncover the truth. But as she regains her memory, someone tries to scare her off, and the culprit may be someone she trusts most: Mace, who was the prime suspect in Mandi's presumed death; Jenna's driven mother, who's utilized the tragedy to become Indiana's first female lieutenant governor; a psychiatrist who has urged Jenna to repress rather than work through her past; or a stalker who's either a Norman Bates¤type psycho in women's clothes or Mandi back from the dead.
