HASH(0x9d845e70) out of 5 stars Not Horrible, But I Just Didn't Care How It Ended June 25 2012
By WestieLover - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I usually love Wendy Corsi Staub, but about 1/3 of the way through this book I realized that I simply didn't care what happened to the characters. I tried to continue to plod through it (because I had paid for it), and then I quit (reading is supposed to be for enjoyment, right?). The story moves very slowly, and the character development is too shallow to make up for the slow pace. I have pre-ordered Staub's next book, and I'm hoping for better results.

HASH(0x9d1a00d8) out of 5 stars VERY DISAPPOINTING, VERY CONFUSING Nov. 23 2011
By Gregory D. Holderbach - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have been a fan of Wendi Corsi Staub and I have enjoyed her novels over the years, but her last book is a huge disappointment. The first 30 pages are crammed with so many characters and their (over the top) back-stories it made my head spin and left me very confused, going back and forth to try to figure out who was who and who did what. I eventually gave up after reading 70 pages. I'll definitely check out the reviews for her next book before buying it. I hope she hasn't lost her touch for good.

This author is another favorite of mine. She can make you pay attention fast! I have trouble putting the book down when my husband comes home wanting dinner! But I always try to remember making something in the crock pot! It feels like Christmas when I buy books at Amazon and know they'll be there arriving soon! I always get good quality too, so that's special to me! Thank You!

HASH(0x9d1a0888) out of 5 stars Exceptional conclusion to the trilogy Sept. 27 2011
By John B. Valeri - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Staub is well known for her depictions of women in peril, and Lucy Walsh is a particularly strong example of this. Not only does her mom-to-be status ensure a palpable sense of vulnerability, but her familiarity as a returning character also evokes a strong sympathetic response in the reader. Other personalities reappear throughout the book, as well--sometimes expectantly and sometimes not--resulting in a menagerie of familiar faces that are often surprising in their actions and intent.

This premise lends itself beautifully to the story at hand, as Staub infuses new blood (if you'll pardon the expression) into a series that could easily have drifted into the ordinary. Rather, the ten year gap in time coupled with the shift in focus takes the story in exciting and unexpected new directions. It also allows the author to examine the after-effects of the bloodshed, deception and dysfunction that punctuated the events of the first two books--a penetrating perspective that should give readers pause to consider the consequences of real-world situations even as they strive furiously to assemble the pieces of Staub's intricately crafted puzzle.

With this book, Staub offers an exceptional conclusion to a well-executed and often unpredictable trilogy. She methodically brings the story full circle, merging past and present in a terrifying series of events that reminds us that one person's happy ending often comes at the expense of somebody else's. As unsettling a truth as this may be, it's one that needs to be reckoned with. Because if it's not, there just may be Hell to Pay...
