"The day Savannah was killed she was fifteen minutes late to meet me." So begins bookseller favorite Susan Strecker's second novel of twin sisters and the murder that left one twin behind.
Savannah was the popular bad girl
skipping school and moving quickly from one boyfriend to the next, so
when she didn't meet Cady as promised, Cady wasn't surprised and the
truth was Cady was already a bit mad at her. When Cady suddenly becomes
short of breath she realizes Savannah is in trouble, but within minutes
Savannah is gone.
Years later Cady, now a bestselling author of
suspense, spends her time interviewing killers, hoping each interview
will help her understand what happened to her sister. Despite Savannah's
death, the bond Savannah and Cady share has never been broken. Savannah
still comes to Cady, but the clues her sister sends don't add up until a
chance encounter while researching her latest novel provides a missing
piece of the puzzle. @goodreads

This sounded liked a really good book and I'm sure plenty of people will
love it, but I just liked it. I didn't hate it and I didn't love it.
twin sister Savannah was killed when they were teenagers. They never
found the person who did it. Now Cady is older, married to Greg, and a
writer of murder books.
Cady had a really hard time growing up after Savannah's murder and tried some really bad things herself.
she is trying to write another book and wants to interview a murderer
in prison. She says this is for the book, but she has other reasons.

There are certain parts of the book I just didn't
care for, Cady's husband is a jerk and it goes on and on with him. In my
opinion he needed to be kicked out of the scene way before he was.
parents and her brother David never got over the murder and other
things either. They never really talked about it. The parents moved away
but David stayed there with Cady.
Cady's search brings her back
to an old high school crush named Brady that is actually working at the
prison. They got pretty close in the book and he was going to help her
get an interview inside the prison.
It did not end in no way I
thought it would. It was a big let down to me, I already had different
scenarios picked out, but it was just not anything like that. I kind of
felt like someone else in the book when they found out about the murder.
They felt like it was a whole waste of time.
You will just have to read the book for yourself and make your own decisions.
