Twenty-two years ago, the beautiful Misty Banner was brutally murdered in her home in Virtue Falls, Washington. Her daughter Elizabeth, four years old at the time of the murder, has lived her entire life believing that her father committed the crime. Now, decades, Elizabeth is back in Virtue Falls and hoping to find out the reasons behind the murder. What she never expects to learn, though, is that her father was innocent all along. In fact, the real killer is still out there. And Misty was not his only victim...
The book started off with a bang. The prologue was creepy and chilling, yet attention-grabbing. Unfortunately, that was all there was to it.
The next few chapters were boring, the story dragged like it had all the time in the world, everything else was explored (even earthquakes, tsunamis, and ghosts) instead of focusing on the main plot...You know, the thing that got me into the book in the first place. You know, the thing that was promised in the prologue.
My attention span isn't as good as it once was, the percentage of "book read" in the lower right corner of my Kindle app didn't seem inclined to change, and I got fed up. I skipped to the end to see it things improved enough for me to stick with it, but, although the ending, the big confrontation, was probably supposed to be nail-biting and action-packed, it just didn't resonate with me.
