I'm not one to read too many books just because they have a hugh hype associated with them. My friend the librarian kept telling me over and over that I needed, had to, must read this book. It had been sitting on my night-stand since Easter but I finally got around to it and finished it pretty quickly considering my busy schedule. The book...
Amy is not happy about leaving NYC but she's willing to go with Nick to the south on the hopes that things will get better in their marriage. They've had to use her life fortune of being a childhood book star "Amazing Amy" and now they've got to make their own way in a new town. She even lends Nick the last of her money to start a bar with his sister.
When their fifth wedding anniversary rolls around Nick has one idea how the day will end and Amy has another. When Nick comes home from working at the bar all day he finds the door ajar on the house, a burning tea kettle and no sign of Amy. The living room shows a sign of a struggle and Nick calls the police. From then on out it's a race to find out what's happened to Amy. Nick is also the prime suspect in her disappearance because he's the husband. As the story unfolds we see both sides of the story. It's intriguing and suspenseful to the very end.
I thought the book was very well written and a good read. Did I think it was everything that people are making it cracked up to be? No. Personally I've read some books that I was more interested in but it definitely was a nice read.
