My daughter Kelli and I are both book readers…or rather listeners. We have become multi-taskers and listening to audiobooks is so easy to do while folding clothes or traveling in the car. Even if we only listen back and forth commuting to work, we still get in quite a bit of book time each week. Plus it makes the drive so much better.
Kelli’s latest listen was Don’t You Cry by Mary Kubica. Kelli was really hopeful that it would be good as she has liked other books by this author.
“This one was good—not my favorite of this author—but still good! The story is told from two perspectives without mention of time so I didn’t know if both were happening close together or far apart. I also feel like some things were focused on so much more than needed, especially since it didn’t come into play as much in the end. Overall an okay book, just not my most favorite.”
Here is what Amazon had to say:
“In downtown Chicago, Esther Vaughan disappears from her apartment without a trace. A haunting letter addressed to My Dearest is found among her possessions, leaving her roommate Quinn Collins to question how well she really knew her friend. Meanwhile, in a small town an hour outside Chicago, a mysterious woman appears in the quiet coffee shop where eighteen-year-old Alex Gallo works as a dishwasher. He is immediately drawn to her, but what starts as an innocent crush quickly spirals into something far more sinister.
As Quinn searches for answers about Esther, and Alex is drawn further under the stranger’s spell, master of suspense Mary Kubica takes readers on a taut and twisted thrill ride that builds to a stunning conclusion and shows that no matter how fast and far we run, the past always catches up with us.
Amazon readers only gave this book 3.9 stars. That’s low for Amazon so I’m guessing Kelli was right that this isn’t the author’s best work.
