Publisher Description

On a sunny day in July, Clare Prentice arrives in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. Although she is on assignment to interview the town's notoriously reclusive novelist Nate Hanssen, Clare is really in search of a different story - her story. Just months before, Clare was a bride-to-be, living in Chicago and looking to the future - until the day she learned her entire life had been a lie. Not only was Clare adopted, but there is no record that she or her adoptive mother ever existed. The only clue is a class ring from Grand Rapids Senior High School.

Unable to get on with her future until she reconciles her past, Clare breaks off her engagement. Unraveling the mystery is like trying to sculpt fog - until the first piece of the puzzle unexpectedly drops into place: Clare's birth mother, Lily Gundersen, was murdered in Grand Rapids. Lily's murder was one of the most talked-about events in the town's history, but no one is talking now. Clare doesn't know the whole story - and someone intends to keep it that way.

A Pretty Good "Read"

This is a typical mystery storyline, somewhat predictable, but had a few unexpected twists. It left me with some unanswered questions to ponder. Not great literature by any stretch but your standard mystery fare.

The narration started off sluggish and sounded inexperienced but improved by the end. (If pace is too slow the speed can be adjusted in your ipod.) It did improve and by the end, at times I got lost in the story and it was much more enjoyable.

If you can get through the slow beginning, it’s an OK story, good if you really like mysteries and emotional damsels in distress. A few interesting characters and some surprises. The audio equivalent of a beachside paperback.
