I was quite excited by the premise of this book. A petty crime and the DNA sample of the daughter led to the linkage of a murder 20 years ago.
Sienna’s small thievery led to the men in her family to be implicated, namely her father, uncle, and grandfather. And now it was upto mother Annie to deduce the truth as during an alcoholic binge, all the men had lost their hours of memory in 1999.
The premise was exciting but the prose was too detailed in the smallest of actions to show how close knit the family was. The suspense of the mystery of those lost hours was diluted to the point that only the last 20% revived it.
Annie didn’t do much other than try to be there for her kids. Most of the investigation was done by the cops and private investigator. It was more like a police procedural and the perp was unexpected.
The story had good twists at the end. I wouldn’t say it was the most exciting of her books, it was still quite fun.
I liked her earlier books. The writing style was so different in them.
