I found this story to be very pacy - the events take place over the course of one day - which is good for a story of this type. You can get into the story very quickly and I only needed a few sittings to finish this book.

The narrating alternates between Sara, the title character and the victim, and Detective Johnson, who is one of the officers investigating the disappearance of Sara's children. This allows us to see the same crime from two different perspectives, although their stories of how they come to the same answers and how they reach them is different. There are some predictable outcomes - both from realising who the villian actually is and who the villian can't be - but there are still some unexpected twists and turns so I was able to keep reading.

This book was free on the Kindle market when I purchased this, but I would have been happy to pay. I will read it again at some point and I will see what else the author has to offer.

I'm another one that got this book cheaply on the kindle but I would happily pay full price and have now gone and got other things from the same author.

It had me gripped from the start and I struggled to put it down. While I guessed part of who was involved, there were still enough twists to keep me guessing and reading to the end. Would definitely recommend.

This book packs a punch from the very beginning. Although other reviewers have said that the villain is obvious from the outset, I would have to disagree. Yes, that person's identity becomes fairly obvious early on but there are a number of red herrings along the way. We are definitely led to suspect someone else for a great deal of the story, even though there are hints about the person who ultimately does prove to be behind it all. Whether the reader identifies the perpetrator or not is not really relevant as Sara is the person who needs to find out who is behind it and why. Many of the peripheral characters remain ghostlike as there is no need to delve deeply into their psyches, they are there purely to lead us further into the story. The main characters are developed through their involvement with the events of the story. We get to know Teddy's shortcomings through his interactions with Sara, mostly in the workplace but also as they come up against each other during this momentous day. Again we get to know the police officers through their working relationship but also in the way they work things out individually.

The plot here was good and the tension, which built from the outset, never let up. I made the decision not to read this before settling down to sleep as I was sure that if I did, it would keep me awake for hours. That proved to be a correct decision for the reasons stated, but I may as well have read it because it kept me awake, buzzing round my head for hours anyway and it has remained with me for much of the day. To me that is the mark of a good book.

I liked that this book got straight into the story without any unnecessary fluff at the beginning. The only downside of that was there wasn't enough time to introduce lots of characters and therefore it didn't take much thinking about to work out the villain. However I was gripped and finished the book within a few days.

A good enjoyable read for a freebie.

Oh dear.....another I've packed in. Stopped at 19% and it does get an extra star because it isn't full of mistakes !
However, it seems to be it was going to be set around computer games and I've zero interest in those at all. It started well and with great promise as there were some very funny lines in it but then just got a little too weird for me. I stopped with it when the guy on the phone ordered her to do her first "forfeit" I'd guess you'd call it. It was all a little too silly and unbelievable at this stage.

I was lucky enough to get this on my kindle for free but would not be disappointed if I had paid for it. The storyline gripped me from the start and had me guessing the way the turns would go over and over and rarely predicting the right ending. Hard to put down and read it in just two sittings !

This started well enough and there were some cliffhangers in the storyline, but the perpetrator was fairly obvious from the beginning, there could have been better red herrings! The end was a little weak, although the outcome was as one would have wished.

I won't bother with a synopsis, but this book had me gripped from the start! Although it was very easy to work out the villain in the story, Sara's journey from start to end was very well written and was also very chilling!
A must read for anyone who enjoys something a bit different from the usual romance novels and who wants something a bit more thrilling.
Only problem I have is that the ending could have been tied up just a little bit neater as I'm still working out the finer details!
Amazed that this book is free, so download it while you can.
