Goodreads: It was to be the perfect wedding—until the bride disappeared.
Annie Taft’s wedding is four days away, and it will be one of the grandest anyone can remember in her small South Carolina town. Preparations are in order. Friends and family are gathering in anticipation. Everything is going according to plan. Except that Annie herself has vanished. Did she have second thoughts? Or has something much worse happened to the bride-to-be?
While her loved ones frantically try to track her down, they’re forced to grapple with their own secrets—secrets with the power to reframe entire relationships, leaving each to wonder how well they really knew Annie and how well they know themselves.
Ope’s Opinion: I thought this was going to be an intense read about a missing person. Instead it was a slow moving story about a small town with characters I had a hard time caring about and it was not intense at all. Some of these characters were really strange.
My biggest frustration in mystery books is when I can’t figure out who the guilty party is because they are not in the book until the end. If the guilty person isn’t someone you care about or doesn’t effects the other characters, it makes it hard to care. The ending of this story was not very satisfying.
