This book is a real page turner. My stomach was in knots because, as a mother myself, I could relate to the feelings of the young boy's mother. It is easy to keep track of all the characters because of the author's descriptive way she presents each one. I definitely recommend Christine's other book "No Way Out" as it was even more suspenceful and had some suprising twists. I look forward to reading more of her stories.

This book was good from the first page I read. It was very real and something that could happen to anyone at anytime. Each page was intriguing and made me want to read more. The characters were all very well written with some characters you love and some you hate. There was no doubt who each character was as they were described very well. I enjoyed this book very much and look forward to reading Christine's other 3 books as well as any books which may be written in the future.

Much like a previous reviewer, I did not like the characters. I didn't connect with any of them, and the one you are supposed to, Stacey, is so annoying I wanted to smack her. What mother would hide evidence when it comes to kidnapping? Regardless of whether the child is her own or not, no (sane) mother would hide evidence when it comes to a child's safety, even if it pointed to her husband. Add breaking and entering...and theft...She needed to be locked away.

The story was not suspenseful, any mystery/suspense reader will have figured out Whodunit before the half-way mark. This story just dragged on and on, did the author have a minimum word count she had to reach? because that's what it seemed like.

Not recommended. I can't say I won't read anything else by the author, because I know that all authors have crappy books. This just happens to be this author's crap book. Skip it.

With hundreds of unread books on my Kindle, I don't have hours to waste on writing that isn't ready for prime time. Noting the widely differing reviews, I hoped I would like this book and took a chance on it. The premise is interesting, and the plot moves along and holds water. But it's a bucket holding water, not a vase. This has the feel of write-by-numbers fiction. Most of it is too direct and on-the-nose, lacking in subtlety and flair. Though the story makes sense, the red herrings are revealed, and the loose ends tied up, the effect throughout is kind of clumsy and incredible.

By contrast, I just finished reading The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson. Now there's a compelling, credible thriller, even though the plot gets really wild. The plot of Suspicions gets wild too, but instead of turning the e-pages with anxious interest in what happens next, I was impatient to just finish the book. My reactions to the climactic confrontation were oh brother, eye rolling, puhleeeease can we get this over with. I appreciated the advertised absence of profanity and sexual content (one of the reasons I gave the book a chance), but that virtue can't compensate for poor writing.

This is a good example of a book that wouldn't have been published before do-it-yourself e-publishing came along, because it's not very good. It wouldn't have made the cut. This author would have been rejected and either quit or kept trying until her writing improved substantially. No doubt some real gems get passed up by traditional print publishers, but it's hard to find those diamonds in the self-publishing rough. This isn't one of them.

I'm glad I got this book for FREE or else I would really be mad. The story is disjointed. The main character is a mother who acts like she is on a crusade to save her family and herself, despite the fact that she holds most of the information necessary to save a little boy's life. As a mother, I can't see anyone acting this crazy. I read the whole book trying to find the suspense, but all I found were unbelievable actions from the main character. I was very disappointed!!

In fairness to the author, I read the entire book before leaving a review.

This book reads as if written by an elementary school student. I totally agree with the other reviewer that asked if there was a minimum number of words the author was required to write. So much of the narrative adds nothing to the story and seems to exist only to make the book longer.

Several of the characters pose questions as part of their dialouge and if it was
done to engage the reader, it failed miserably. These "talking to myself" hypothetical questions were rather annoying. Instead of giving me insight to the characters' thought process, they illustrated just how one dimensional the characters were.

I also agree with the others that did not like the main character. She was nosey, whiney, insecure and presumptuous. Her actions are totally naive, everything from playing detective to committing her own crimes that she seems to justify, even though she fails to see how this does not make her any different from her father, which she condemns throughout. (Not going to spoil that part, but it makes sense if you read the book.) She is hypocritical on just about every level.

The whole story is unrealistic and it seems as if there was no research on how missing persons investigations are actually conducted.

Based on this book, I have no desire to read others by this same author. My advice is to skip this one, even if it is free.
