Love that Price wrote a short of them being absolutely, undoubtedly happy. Almost like a fix-it AU, their happiness is the whole entire point of this story and I couldn't stop smiling like a lunatic at their cuteness!
And ice skating! And intertwined hands! And frozen kisses!

I enjoyed the witty dialogue (Caroline is a goddess and a gift to this world).
Especially, I loved the look from the other side. Vic has a shitload of repressed issues, and is therefore an unreliable narrator. But from Jacob's perspective, I got to see the way other people see Vic. The way Jacob sees Vic, and not the way Vic thinks Jacob sees him.

This is a book I enjoyed reading, but it didn't shatter my world nor will I remember it come next month. It was a fun way to spend the time, and I gotta credit Colby Marshall for her fantastic plot skills.
It didn't have the same thrill as Gone Girl, sad to say, but then, not many thriller books do. The main character, Jenna Ramey, had a rigid set of moral values, and a determination to do what's right. She rushed into danger and protecting family was always at the forefront of her mind. The absence of moral ambiguity was a bit of a downer for me, though.
As for the antagonist, Isaac Keaton, he's nothing but ambiguity. Following Jenna's thought process as she evaluated his character was exhilarating. Even if their conversations were a bit dry and loaded with a lot of meaningless double speak.
But I have to iterate: the plot was fantastic. If there was anything in this book that impressed me, that was it. It was well thought out, planned to a t, and had an abundance of twists and turns to keep the conflict interesting and the tension amped up.
There were so many interwoven elements I kept getting amazed how seamlessly they got together to create such a cohesive narrative. There was the storyline with the investigation, and then Jenna's personal life got dragged into it, and then there was a sort of distraction as a grieving father finally snaps and goes on a revenge rampage. And it's all neatly tied together with the second shooter doing his own convoluted thing.
Everyone is running in circles, chasing each other and figuring out new puzzle pieces that suddenly change the rules of the game. And despite all this, the real criminal was behind bars the entire time.
This book reads like a crime novel, as it should because it is, but despite loving many elements, it didn't make much of an impact on me. Jenna was hard to relate to. Maybe because I am neither a mother nor have I a psychopathic mother, nor is someone gunning for my life and therefore forces me into tight corners. But I do admire her resilience and her ability to make tough decisions in the face of defeat.
