I read the other reviews on this book and was excited to read it, but found the actual reading to be boring and very predictable. The same things are repeated over and over and OVER. An "OKAY" read if you have nothing else on hand.

This suspenseful mystery deals with a mother looking for her missing daughter. Their relationship has been up and down. It's pretty good. The back cover reads "...a sexy, suspenseful novel of a gorgeous young woman whose disappearance throws her family into turmoil--opening old wounds and unleashing fresh demons."

after argueing with everyone in her house, julia goes missing after an audition. while her mother is frantic with worry, her father could care less. the search for her turns up a few of julia's well-kept secrets. if julia ever comes back, will she be the same, or will she have changed for the better?

i knew the ending straight from the beginning. sure a couple of times, i found myself rethinking the ending, but for the most part i knew exactly what happened. i'm not just talking about what happened to julia, i'm talking about heather, faith, leigh, and everyone. while the book wasn't "a real page turner", it did have me not wanting to put it down.

This was a great story line, it was a page turner, and you felt like you were Cindy Carver, felt her pain ... and were disappointed in the end, just like her.

A spoiled headstrong young woman disappears after going to an audition for a role in a hot new movie. Her family, especially her mother, is frantic. What has happened to her? And why is her neighbor acting so strangely?

This book was OK, but not as strong as some of Fielding's other books. The missing daughter (a grown woman) is such a brat that I frankly didn't care what happened to her! The plot twist is somewhat unexpected though.
