This wasn't MHC's best, but it wasn't horrible. I wouldn't say I'm disappointed because the mystery was good, but there was an overload of characters and more police work than I usually care to read about...it didn't add to the strength of the story for me.
Also, I didn't feel the connection between Carolyn and her missing brother, Mack. She talked about him a lot, but it seemed to be just that - talk. I didn't feel sad at the end the way I'm sure MHC intended her readers to feel. It was an OK ending, and the epilogue certainly wrapped things up nicely, but it lacked a lot for me to be able to call this a satisfying read.
