Great read

I love romance and mystery and children so this book was right up my alley. I love the intensity of the characters also. The only thing I didn't like was the dullness of the female lead character. After getting to know the male lead and after meeting the estranged wife, a normal female would be sharper. She would question the other female's motives and attribute most tragedies to that female NOT blame the male. Emily thinks Brad is lying and conniving when she is aware that those traits are not in line with his character. She also knows that the blonde wifey is not so nice. So why would she believe anything that wifey says? That was the only unrealistic aspect of the story. But I still love the story line.

I could not get enough of this story. Thanks for bringing awareness to readers about autism. Although the story was sad and very emotional, there’s a lot of information for parents and family members of autistic children. Thank you for being an advocate.

Still no..

2nd attempt to read this book. Kudos to author for bringing to light a truly misunderstood and misdiagnosed brain disorder that not enough is said or done about. Just didn’t care for the immature main characters.
