This book was a big flop. I have read a lot of Nora Roberts books & loved them all. I kept looking at the cover to be sure she wrote this book & it wasnt someone else that maybe she just assisted on. After 50 pages I was going to return it, decided to stick with it a little longer, by 100 pages was convinced there was no story to this book at all. Nothing but the main character & her daily life running a business, how monotonous. I kept thinking I wanted to know about the missing people so decided to stick with it anyway. That part of the story was the mystery, not about what Bodine was eating for breakfast. She should have focused more on that part of the story of the missing & left out the day to day grind story. What a major disaster for Ms Roberts.
