I enjoyed this book It was fast paced and I loved Mccall's daughter The plot was lengthy and at times had unnecessary layers The author seemed to want to make it complicated then it needed to be Carla is a beautiful woman with a past She manipulates them and leaves them before they have even realized that she stole something valuable from them For some reason one of her exes Tom McCall feels obligated and determined to find her and solve the mystery behind her He doesn't seem to have a motive for doing so He is not interested in renewing their friendship so I was at a bit of a loss as to why he didn't just slam and lock his door and say good riddance First mystery book i read i can say it will be probably the only oneif all mystery books are like this one It was an ok read didnt keep me at the edge of my seat it had no action and at times i felt it was going no where Photographer plays detective to try and find out what happened to his ex girlfriend the idea was interesting but the plot setting and actions could have been better written I read the ebook version and didn't have any problems with turning pages The book was filled with uirky characters involved in blackmail I enjoyed reading it although it did get a little long winded toward the middle but then picks up once again Throughout the book I wanted to slap Thomas for talking to the drama ueen I understand why she kept popping back into his life but the typical male in him frustrated me Overall not a bad read This book was full of good characters with lots of twists and turns There might not be enough action for some mystery fans but I found it a fun read The ebook version had twice as many pages but for every page I turned it went 3 pages forward confusing yes The story wasn't the best but I've read worse A boring slow read It wanted to be a thriller but just wasn't
