I loved the intrigue in the story as one night, on a midnight walk, a sister disappeared, and it was left to the other to try to find her. My first book, though would not be the last, by author Courtney Evan Tate kept me up, reading late at night, just to know the reason behind the disappearance.
There were a few twists, one really made me gasp… I had a – Noooo… I can’t believe it – moment, then the book moved swiftly on the investigation and truth reveals. The love between both the sisters was genuine, the bond from childhood made was apparent. The author sure made me feel anger and a need for revenge just like the main character did. I could understand her pain and jealousy.
Smooth writing and swift pace, though didn’t really like the cop investigating the case, he was too sloppy, if you ask me. A few moments where the story seemed to lose its tautness and reasons were seen, but nothing dampened by curiosity, really.
Overall, the characterization was full-on, where each added a layer to the story. I enjoyed getting to know their raison d’être. Karma sure got them all. Quite entertaining.
A woman disappears into the dark city night…
Gen is on the verge of a divorce from her cheating husband. When her sister, Meg, has a convention to attend in the Big Apple, she invites Gen along to celebrate her newly found freedom. But the perfect sisters’ getaway quickly goes awry when a tipsy Gen defiantly throws her wedding ring off the hotel room’s balcony. Then, wanting some fresh air, she decides to take a late-evening walk alone and vanishes without a trace.
The investigation that follows uncovers secrets–and betrayals–between sisters and spouses that will twist the truth in on itself until nothing is clear.
What really happened to Gen and who, besides Meg, was the last to see her?

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
