What would you do if your daughter was suspected of committing suicide but her body was never found? Would you believe that she was dead? Would you be able to rest and be at peace? These are all the questions that the book, Now You See Her by Joy Fielding, bring up.
When it came to the turmoil that Marcy was going through, after not only the death of her daughter, but her quarter-of-a-decade marriage ends, Joy Fielding's descriptions were bang on. I felt the pain and the saddness as if it were me. It made me wonder how far I would go to find my lost child.
While it was a book that left me hanging and wanting more at the end of each chapter, I found that it dragged... a lot. I don't think the story spans much more than a week (or at least it feels that way), it felt like I was re-reading the same thing over again each and every day... very reminiscent of the movie Groundhog Day. The relationships that Marcy makes while on her journey seem strange... how you can become so intimately involved with TWO different men so quickly just doesn't seem believable.
The ending of the story, as with all mystery novels, brings the whole story together and I am sad to say that I had figured this one out at the mid-way part of the book. Even though I did waver on the ending a few times, I did indeed have it right.
Overall, Now You See Her is a good, fast read and I would say that if you enjoy a mystery novel with a lot of suspense, this one will not disappoint.
