Don't You Cry by Mary Kubica
Mary Kubica returns with an electrifying and addictive tale of deceit and obsession...
3.0 out of 5 stars -- Psychological drama. When Esther, vanishes from their apartment, Quinn begins an intense investigation and quickly discovers that there is much she did not know about her roommate. In a parallel narrative, Alex watches a young woman newly arrived in his town. and becomes infatuated with her. Quinn searches and Alex watches. What happened to Esther and why did she disappear? What is this girl, who Alex has secretly named Pearl, doing in this cold place near to Lake Michigan.
Slow pace with some tension created with the ominous tone. Lots of rambling stream of consciousness prose from the two main characters. Quite implausible and very predictable. I think most readers will have figured out some key clues by 19% in. Not enough action or suspense for me.
I've read all 3 of this author's books now and this was my least favorite. I am sure I will read the next by this author. Thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin MIRA for the e-book ARC to review.
