5.0 out of 5 starsAccurate and extremely interesting
Reviewed in the United States on April 19, 2019
The characters were believable and interesting. I often drive into Ocean Grove. The author definitely got the feel of the town and accurate descriptions of the shops there. I like a mystery book where I haven’t figured out who the villain is.
Another good mystery in this series. The reporter has to postpone her family's vacation or face losing her job. She is sent to report on a girl gone missing for three days but when she is found no one believes she was kidnapped. The story is about girls that cry wolf. But when another girl goes missing but is found dead it throws a whole net light on the story. Lots if people with motives, but who is the killer.
I particulaly enjoyed the history around the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Area. There were many of these types of camps dating back to the thirties where city people had a chance to get away from the hot summer and live reasonably on the water. I also liked the reference to the old abandoned Casino. Old abandoned places are perfect settings for mysteries. Mary Jane Clark did an excellent job of keeping me on the edge and wanting to read more and more. Diane's decision of job versus family is one that many of us can identify with. The cutting was very interesing but I felt left hanging. All in all I enjoyed this book very much. It's a keeper!

Interesting with the therapy group and their issues plus Mom trying to cope with husband in jail and keep her job and yet still be there and not disappoint her children too much.

I listened to this book on CD during a road trip. I stayed interested enough to keep listening, but I thought that much of the plot was contrived. I was especially interested in the anorexia issue, but I was disappointed that this issue was so quickly resolved. Anyone who has dealt with anorexics knows that nothing is that quick or easy. This story was much more predictable than some of Clark's other books which I have thoroughly enjoyed. This book is good enough to check out from the library, but I wouldn't pay full price for it.
