Joanne has disappeared! Was it suicide or murder? Carter is gradually being driven crazy by the truth. Every chapter leads to more suspense, leaving the reader riveted until the end.


Shem
At least I think it's a first novel. I can't find anything else by her, which is a shame. I think Ms. Hammon has a lot of potential. I had a hard time putting this book down.

Although the story isn't very original, it has some unique twists and turns. Young mother of two goes missing, suspected suicide. But is it? Is she dead or alive? I won't give that away, but that part did keep me guessing. You know who the "bad guy" is from the beginning. He's not very bright but he tends to have a lot of luck getting away with things.

There's a touch of the paranormal, which enhances the storyline rather than monopolizes it. The characters also seem to have a religious faith. While not a Christian book per se, it doesn't preach. This doesn't bother me at all because I love Christian fiction, but I think the non-religious won't have a problem here either.

There were a couple of things that bothered me. First, the characters were shallow. Not in a "I need to look good or I'll just die" kind of shallow, but in a way that I didn't feel like I knew them well. Not a lot of character development. There's no lead character in this story, so character development would have been hard. Pretty much everyone had an equal part to play in the storyline, even the children.

However!!!! This didn't stop me from falling in love with the victim, her kids, her parents, and her grieving fiance. Maybe I didn't know them well, but Ms. Hammon made sure I empathized. The police officer is my hero! Equally so, I hated our antagonist. He literally creeped me out. His new wife I felt pity for, but not enough to like her.

The other thing that bothered me was the ending. It was WAY too short and rushed. I had no idea the end was near and BAM, it was over. That being said, I was satisfied with the ending. I didn't know if I should laugh or cry, and I probably did a little of both. It just would have been nice to have more than a paragraph or two to wrap up the book.

Overall, I really liked the book. Great job, and hope to see more from this author!
