After a one-night stand, Quinn Collins is awoken unpleasantly by her roomate's alarm. She stumbles into her roommate's Chicago bedroom to find the window open and no sign of Esther Vaughan. Quinn's determined to find Esther, but the more she discovers, the more baffled she becomes.
Miles away in a small Michigan community, a young woman starts frequenting a cafe where Alex Gallo works. He's 18 and finds the woman he dubs "Pearl" to be an enigma, an attractive one at that. There are things Alex will find out that will forever change him.
As the story progresses, there are a lot of twists. I had part of it figured out, but still there was little hope for me beating the characters to the truth. I always love being surprised.
I've become very fond of books along the lines of Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, and such. One thing I've come to find is that when I'm in the mood for that kind of dark, suspenseful mystery, Mary Kubica will always deliver.
Look for Don't You Cry on May 17, 2016. It's a MIRA release.
