I really enjoyed this read! At first I was concerned that there were too many characters, but by the midpoint of the story, I was totally hooked.
While riding on a train by herself, Ella notices two young men, just out of prison, flirting with two teenage girls. She suddenly becomes concerned about the girls’ safety, and the next day, she learns that one of the teenage girls has gone mission.
One year later, that girl is still missing. Her best friend Sarah, it appears, hasn’t been telling the whole truth about what happened that night – and her parents have been keeping secrets of their own. Meanwhile, Ella is receiving threatening letters and feels uneasy while working in the flower shop she owns…as if someone is watching her.
There are a lot of characters and subplots in this book, which can be confusing, but they do intersect. I found the ending disappointing, although I can’t explain why without revealing spoilers, so I’ll just say that I’d hoped for all of the mystery to be wrapped up in a different way.
Still, it was an engaging and engrossing book, and I truly felt like I was in good hands while reading it, so kudos to Teresa Driscoll.
