“God knows, I’m no expert on relationships, but I do know when something’s good. And this thing we’ve created between us is precious and rare. I only hope it’s not fleeting, because for the first time in my adult life, I’ve given someone the power to hurt me.”
Linda Castillo, Gone Missing

“Kinda like trying to hold down a leaf in a tornado, but I'll try”

“I feel as if we're the centre of the universe and a kind God has blessed two imperfect people with a perfect moment.”

Linda Castillo Hi Barbara--

I hope you enjoy the book. It's darker than the movie in terms of tone, language and violence. Hope that's okay with you! I loved the movie, btw. Neve was an excellent choice for Kate Burkholder. I think just about every character was well cast.

Thanks for writing and have a great day!

Linda
