** spoiler alert ** Stopped at page 71 out of boredom. The plot feels cheap, as do some of the characters (Trent, Brenna's assistant and resident douchebag, complete with nipple rings and egomania; the detective character Nick, who was shaping up to be Brenna's love interest, which was so irksome; Carol Wentz, Nelson Wentz, etc.) I felt that, by this point, I should have been hooked and not wanted to put the book down, but I just couldn't get into it. And for what claims to be a "novel of suspense", it's severally lacking (with the exception of the creepy phone call to Carol Wentz).

The only thing that was sort of interesting was Brenna's memory/disorder, a condition brought on by the childhood trauma of watching her sister get into a blue car and disappear forever, where she can recall every single moment of each and every day. While this might be helpful, it also seems hard for her to control, as she is constantly slipping into memories and reliving certain days over without meaning to.

I really wanted to like this book and keep reading it, but I just feel like it's a waste of my time.
