BOTTOM-LINE:
The story is okay, but the characters are depressing.
.
PLOT OR PREMISE:
It's a 35-year-old cold case of a missing mom, and the now 40-year-old daughter wants to know what happened to Violet.
.
WHAT I LIKED:
Daughter Daisy needs to know what happened so she can move forward in her messed-up life -- did Dad kill her? Did she run away? And why did she take the DOG but not her daughter? The people with info include the husband aka Daisy's Dad, a babysitter who saw her get ready to go out, a best friend, a brother, a car salesman, some men at the local bar, etc. The story bops back and forth from the past to the present, like most cold cases do. And the tension ramps up when Kinsey finds out that not everyone seems to like her looking for Violet...either that or they just don't like the tires on her car.
.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
The characterizations of the kids and what they're thinking or feeling back in '53 seem "off", more like adults guessing how they feel or act, and the interactions come off really clumsy. And I don't think there is a single character that I actually like.
.
DISCLOSURE:
I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.

The storyline is very similar to Q is for Quarry & I didn't like the sexually graphic content towards the end of the story,

I have read two of Sue Graftons books, her series of Kinsey Millhone is intreging and full of excitement and bravery. I look forward to reading the hole series. I think it would be a great t.v. show or mini series.
