Goodreads: Don't look away
No one wants to be the mother whose child disappears. It's unthinkable, the stuff of nightmares. But when she turns her back to pay a parking meter, Carrie Morgan becomes that mother. Ben is gone, and more than a year later, it's clear that he is never coming back.
Until he does...for just twenty-four hours, before once again vanishing from his crib without a trace. Rumors start to circulate through Carrie's small town. Whispers that she's seeing things. That her alibi doesn't quite add up.
Her husband and friends start to think she's crazy. The police start to think she's guilty. As the investigation heats up, Carrie must decide what to share, and why. Because the crime is about to be solved... and her secret revealed.
Kritters Thoughts: Carrie is still mourning her missing child who has been gone for 15 months. She always wished for one more day and she actually gets it in this book, plus more!
After reading the book, but before writing this review, I went and read other reviews. I don't tend to do that as I like my reviews to be completely from me, but I was so baffled by this book that I had to see if I was alone - I was not! The synopsis of this book felt like the perfect mystery with a child gone missing that returns, but it isn't. There are ghosts, dead people and weird paranormally things that I just didn't love. Yes, I thought of the movie The Sixth Sense at times, but that wasn't what I went in thinking this book would be and that is what was frustrating.
To be honest, I felt like this book just ended. It was weird and unusual and the second half to the end just didn't work for me. With how off this book was from what I thought it would be, I would have to think twice before picking up her next book.
Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
