Was Lisa on a binge, done in by a stranger she picked up while drunk, or killed by her boyfriend after telling him she's pregnant with another man's child? Tara wants not only to find Lisa but to paint a clearer picture of her friend. Getting in the way of that is Tara's obsession with the much younger butcher at her grocery store. Her fantasies allow her to get through the rest of her gray days.
As Tara's 40th birthday looms, she finds things are not as black and white as they were when she was younger.
Although I caught clues and figured them out in the subplots, the main mystery seemed too predictable - so I was completely surprised when the story passed that by and gave me a double plot twist at the end. I never saw it coming. Good read and nice characters with surprises thrown in.
The story takes place in Canada, and there are also some insights as to what Canadians may think of their southern neighbors, which I sometimes found surprising.
As the story progresses, layers of the onion are peeled back, and the protagonist must begin to make her own decisions rather than allowing life to "carry her along."
A thought-provoking story, although one whose ending you may not agree with.
-- Phyllis Zimbler Miller, author of the novel MRS. LIEUTENANT
