4.0 out of 5 stars where petals fall, 13 Jan 2014
This review is from: Where Petals Fall (Kindle Edition)
This is the first book of Melissa Foster's that I have read as I was sent a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked the characterization as the reader immediately identifies with Junie as her seemingly perfect world begins to crumble around her. Firstly her daughter is suffering from some kind of regression and while various reasons are put forward for her behavior, it isn't until the end that we find out why. Melissa Foster kept me hooked throughout and the ending wasn't at all what I expected. I read a lot of thrillers and romantic suspense so that is no mean feat.

The second problem that Junie faces is her marriage crumbling as her husband Brian works longer and longer hours. I didn't really warm to him at all but I'm sure this is the author's intention. He seems to care little for his wife or daughter and blames Junie for mothering her. When Junie faces a family crisis, she is left to deal with it on her own. It is only later that we come to understand the reason why he is distant and I'm sure the reader will be hoping against hope that they manage to sort out their problems.

I liked the way that the disappearance of Junie's friend Ellen is woven gradually into the story and how the repercussions affect the life today of all those who knew the missing child.. The flashbacks were extremely well done to give us just the amount of information we need. There are twists and turns and secrets galore, which add to the interest.
