It is disappointing when you pick up a book and it can't hook you. But you slog along, hoping somehow it will grab your interest, unfortunately this book does not do that for me. The characters felt stiff, and I never connected at all with them. Kelly made me downright ill, and that is all I will say about her. The storyline seemed rather muddled and like there was no real point to the book, it stretched on and on. I am sorry to say that, because this author is known for her writing skills. Overall I have to be honest and say I didn't care for the story. 2.5 stars from this reviewer. This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review. (Thank goodness because if it had of been a paid review, they would have been upset at my thoughts :-s)
About the book:
Flight instructor Jack Livingston has been raising his eight-year-old adopted niece, Natalie, since the accident that took her parents' lives. When he travels, Natalie is tenderly cared for by her Amish nanny, Laura Mast, who loves the little girl as her own.
Eight excruciating years ago, Kelly Maines's baby was kidnapped. Determined to find her child, Kelly has tirelessly pursued every lead to its bitter end. And now, with the clock ticking, one last clue from a private investigator ignites a tiny flame of hope: Just a few miles away lives a young girl who matches the profile.
Can this be, at long last, Kelly's beloved daughter?
