Clare jolts upright, her hand at her mouth to stifle a scream.
- first sentence
Clare goes undercover at a home that provides shelter to women who are trying to escape domestic violence to help find a missing mother and her son. Clare escaped her own abusive husband in Still Mine (the first book by author Amy Stuart). I didn't read Still Mine, and I only picked up this book because I was stuck going to a water park with no physical book to read (I was afraid to get my iPad wet or not be able to see the screen in the sun). Anyway, I grabbed this book at Target because the cover was pretty and it wasn't too long.
The book was just meh. I didn't connect with any of the characters, including Clare. Everyone is hiding something, but Clare never seems to figure much out - people just end up confessing or revealing each other's secrets. When the final reveal came, I was unimpressed. Maybe I would have liked it better if I read the first book...
