Three Days Missing

We rated this book:


In Three Days Missing, Kat Jenkins faces every mother’s worst fear. Her son, Ethan, disappears while on a camping trip with his class. Kat is in the process of divorcing her abusive husband, so everyone’s first thought is it is probably him. Even though Kat despises him, she knows he loves his son. That same day, Stef Huntington, the mayor’s wife, who also has a son in Ethan’s class, gets a phone call telling her they have her son. Ethan and Sammy look a lot alike, so it’s possible it’s a case of mistaken identity. The police, as well as Kat and Stef, have to discover who took Ethan and why. But when your son is missing, three days can seem like a lifetime and can make you distrustful of those closest to you.

The plot of this book sounded interesting to me, so I asked for it. I’ve never read any other books by Kimberly Belle and wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I can’t say I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was really just okay. The characters weren’t very deep. People you were supposed to connect with just felt flaky and somewhat shallow. The big reveal wasn’t a surprise at all. The supposed breadcrumbs the author left to hint at the perpetrator were more like giant road signs saying “that person did it.” It definitely wasn’t the worst book I’ve ever read, and I think if I was on vacation with a pile of books next to me, I wouldn’t be super disappointed if this was in my pile. It just wasn’t one of those books where you can’t put it down and when you finish it, you are thinking about it for days. This book is more of a filler while you wait for a book like that to come along.
