First, I need to say that I bought this as an e-book months ago and just got around to reading it now. So, instead of looking up the book and finding out what it was about, I just looked at the cover. I've done this before and sometimes it works out great and sometimes not so great.
In this case, let's just say that I guessed completely wrong. On the cover, the book is described as a "haunting page-turner that kept me up, spine shivering..." So, I expected a scary or thrilling book. I think the problem I had with the book was the fairies. I didn't expect the book to include fairies. Andhere were times when I wasn't sure if the fairies were supposed to be real or not. I guess trying to figure that out was part of the suspense of the book. But I just didn't buy into it.
The author did a great job of tying the characters together from the three different times: the time before Lisa was abducted, the time (15 years ago) when Phoebe first found out about the abduction and the present day when Phoebe is a grown woman living with her boyfriend. The twists and turns are interesting and kept me guessing until the end. But I can't say that I was ever on the edge of my seat. In the end, the author does wrap up all the loose ends nicely.(show spoiler)
If you are looking for a book about fairies or a book about mysterious happenings, you might want to give this book a try. But, if you are looking for a haunting page-turner, well there are better options. Perfect example of don't judge a book by it's cover. And proof that you can't always trust reviewers. ;)
