Received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Don’t you cry is told through two different characters (Quinn & Alex) point of view.
Quinn in living in Chicago and wakes up one morning to find that her roommate Esther is missing. While going through Esther’s room she finds her roommates cell phone and a letter addressed to “My Dearest” While trying to find out if her friend is truly missing or not, she finds out some information about her roommate and wonders if she truly knew her roommate at all.
Alex is a young man working as a dishwasher in order to support himself and his father. A mysterious woman comes into the diner where he works one day and he is intrigued by her instantly. He begins to follow her and finds out that not everything is as it seems with her.
Both story-lines merge together at the end for the reveal of the novel. As a reader, I knew from the beginning that in some way, the stories were related. Characters are important in this book. They are in the book for a reason. I really like how clever the Author was in interweaving these two story lines. I’ll give it to her, she did a good job because I did not figure this book out. I thought I had it figured out but I was wrong. Although this book is not a nail biter, I did not sit on the edge of my seat turning pages to see what happens next, this book is still intriguing and intelligent in how information is given. Is this the best book I have ever read? Certainly not. But it is good. I think fans of Mary Kubica will not be disappointed. It is a nice mystery. Not everything is as it seems. The Author did give some clues along they way, I see them now looking back. Hindsight is as they say 20/20. A good book choice for mystery fans.
