I picked this up one day at the library because I was intrigued by the description Now I m just glad I didn t pay for it I thought this book was supposed to be a mystery, but the main characters were much interested in each other than in finding a missing boy Definitely not worth a read. Sadly the book description was way better than the actual book A young boy disappears from an ice rink in a small Minnesota town, prompting an investigation that shatters small town illusions But this description with all its potential is as good as it gets The characters are better described as caricatures and frankly any women should cringe at how Agent Megan O Malley is represented Repeatedly she makes bad decisions that go against everything that she believes in Moreover for someone who is supposedly smart her decisions are just plain dumb The sexual relationship that develops instantaneously between Agent O Malley of the BCA and the police chief of the small town is simply absurd and consequently the sex scenes between the two are gratuitous and cheap, doing nothing to advance the main plot As for the main plot, poorly developed is an understatement I have read other books by this author that were quite good, but this is not one of them Cannot recommend. The best line is on page 300 She breathed in the waxy scent of crayons and felt as if one had been driven through her heart Hah I m on page 404 and so far there have been three official clues and the MOST TEDIOUS characters The woman who broke the sex barrier for females in her position in law enforcement broke her no dating cops rule and slept with the chief the second day she knew him, putting her job at risk and looking like an idiot to all working women to boot I no longer care about Josh, may he rest in peace Really poor character development.Finished it Glad it s over Ending was obviously either that the writer didn t know how to finish a book or a setup for a sequel Women who have sex get punished Men who have sex get punished Ironically, the only place this writer seemed to care about her characters was when they were having sex and then she went on in great detail She didn t mention how two people who were as unreliable and outspoken loose cannons, dare I say managed to advance in law enforcement She didn t mention how the priest had such poor judgment yet kept his collar on She didn t mention oh, never mind It was a really long and pointless story with an unsatisfying ending. When an eight year old boy goes missing from a small Minnesota town in the dead of winter, Special Agent Megan Malloy works to assist Mitch Holt, the town s chief of police, in locating him She s newly promoted to the position as the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension s BCA regional agent and as the first woman in that role, she s also got a lot to prove There was a lot going on in this story in addition to solving the abduction Megan has a fast and firm rule against dating cops and with sexism running rampant, she can ill afford a relationship with Mitch but they can t deny their attraction He comes with quite a bit of baggage as well so this makes for a relationship already weighed down at the onset Megan also has a huge boulder on her shoulder, borne from her own isolated childhood and career ambition The parents of the abducted child are also at each other s throats as their precarious relationship starts tearing at the frayed seams The local media has a separate agenda that interferes with the case and jeopardizes Megan s job The town goes viral after one suspect after another is scrutinized The notion that Deer Lake is a sleepy, safe little town is also turned on its end Secrets abound and the town has to face its vulnerabilities while the abductor remains at large This story isn t just about the case but the human condition and its inherent frailties Many relationships are examined and there are no perfect people in this story and there are many surprises It s intriguing and I had a tough time putting it down Be forewarned that this is a two book commitment as all is not resolved by the end of the story, which is a bit unfair However, I had planned to read the second book, Guilty as Sin but not necessarily right away Now, curiosity demands that I do so Still, this book is worth it if you re interested in mystery, suspense, romance and a somewhat literary approach to the very many characters in this story.
