I read this entire book in about 4 hours. It started very slowly, but by a little over halfway in I realized I was hooked. I needed to know what would happen to them. My heart was aching for these characters. Their tale captivated me.
The character, “Sissy,” was inconsistent. She was Duck’s sister, but acted like his over-protective mother, except when she wasn’t. Her unpredictability bothered me until I realized she was reacting in whatever way helped ease the story along. Then, I simply disregarded her. The story is in need of some editing, as the author seems to like commas.
Here is an example: "Sissy, nodded, turned the key, and swung the jeep down the road and out onto Highway 12, headed back toward their little cottage."
There are many examples like this, but for the most part this was an easy and enjoyable read. The characters are likable and get under your skin, making you want to know how things go for them after the story is over.
I recommend this book to those that love suspense and drama, and give this book 4 Platypires!
