I really like the story. It was suspenseful at times, and I grew to love the main character, Rene. I liked how the author based the story around Domestic Violence, which is so prevelant in our society, but people are not proscecuted as often due to the fear of the spouse and children. I will be downloading other books by this author. I look forward to where else she can take me.
Unknown to Rene, Mark was hell bent on finding her, following Rene's false trail to Europe. Finding only Maddy, Mark walked a destructive path of lies and deceit plus assault and battery. To Mark, Rene had to be punished for leaving him and he would not stop until his wife got what she deserved.
Alternating scenes between Houston and Sad Horse and the story being told in several points of view, the readers are treated to a romantic suspense that is worthy of Tom Clancy and John LeCarre. All the characters, including teh supporting ones are fleshed out and thus readers can find themselves living Rene's nightmare while wondering what is going on with Mark's convoluted mind.
The reason I gave it 2 stars was because of the premise. I really did like the beginning of the book. However, the further you got into the book the less sense things were beginning to make.
I'd compare this book to the way a kid writes a term paper/book report. They start out with a great idea and great designs on where they want to go but as time goes on and it takes longer than they anticipated and they're starting to lose focus they rush to just get it done and over with.
I don't understand how Rene's boss fell in love with her so quickly when there really seemed to be little, if any, contact/interaction with them besides him picking her up at the airport and making sure she got set up in the school. Then people start falling in love all around them all willy-nilly. You never really get a feel for the characters because there's no development of them.
The thing that completely did me in and just annoyed me was when her sister Maddy 'sensed something was wrong' and had to immediately 'get her mink and fly to Alaska. Husband, kids and plausibility be damned!' Seriously? If it was a paperback and not my Kindle I would've thrown it across the room.
I really can't be too upset since I got this book for free but the reviews completely threw me. I know they're subjective but seriously a full 5 stars and I disliked it THAT much? Something isn't right there...
I have to agree with other reviewers who questioned how fast that Rene fell in love with Brett with very little interaction between them, How she was this perfect person at everything she did even if she had never ever done it before and why didn't Brett check her teaching credentials prior to actually hiring her?
The town of Sad Horse seems to be a conglomeration of outcasts with self esteem issues and because of the issues they have they are more than happy to welcome anyone who appears in town. I have decided that I want to move to Sad Horse so I can find my place in this world. Also I would love the long winters being stuck in the house as long as I have my kindle.
