Oops, I missed this - sorry!

I don't have any PLANS for Alex, but that doesn't mean too much, really. If something comes to me, I'll definitely do it.

Part of the problem with him as a hero, though, is that he's so mentally healthy right now. Like, he's gone through some crap and has some scars, but he knows who he is and accepts himself and has good coping mechanisms. All of which is great, for a person, but is kind of challenging for a main character! I mean, what would he overcome, exactly?

Oooh, unless he was the strong, stable one who helped his partner find happiness... and on the surface Alex seems flaky, so his partner could be really solid on the surface and underneath be a mess, and Alex could be the reverse... hmmmmm...(less)

I do like the Christmas check-ins, but you're right, maybe I should be doing them at different times of year - Robbie's first day of school would be an excellent one!

I don't have a rating for this book because I'm honestly not sure what I think about it. I enjoyed it, but... I don't know. The style was strange (jumpy, lumpy) and I'm not sure what the purpose of that was. It must have been deliberate, and I DID en ...more

My first book by this author, and it certainly hasn't inspired me to seek out more.

I thought the "twists" were completely predictable, the characters flat and unappealing, and the conflict anticlimactic. Wasn't much to it, really.

My problem with memoirs is that I never really believe them.

So, if this were a work of fiction? Meh. The family was so clearly NOT off-the-grid (phone lines, electricity, etc.) that I was a bit put-off by all the time spent on that aspect of things.

It was fine. More or less what I expected. Reasonably pleasant fluff with only a few times I wanted to throw my reader against the wall.

Nothing revolutionary.

I really didn't like the heroine. Didn't care if she lived or died. And she didn't actually do much to solve the mystery, which was frustrating.

Meh. I didn't hate it, but it wasn't a memorable reading experience, either.
