When You Find Me: A Novel
I was immediately engaged in the storyline of this book. A drunk, wealthy-by-inheritance Gray Godfrey is her own worst enemy. Her alcoholism has spiraled out of control and even her politician husband, Paul, is quite sick of it. Gray and Paul drive to Gray’s family home to visit with her mother, sister, and nephews. They attend a party where Gray becomes intoxicated almost immediately, taking shots in the bathroom where her husband can’t see her, and ordering double shots of everything. Her ex-boyfriend from childhood is at the party and he drags Gray onto the dance floor. A kiss is shared and a disgraced Paul ends up dragging Gray out of the party. Gray wakes up dressed in her nightgown at her family home the next morning. But Paul is nowhere to be found. A character named Annie makes contact with Gray and makes it sound as if either she killed Paul or knows where he is. The reader is never given enough information about Annie to know who she is until the very end. The story falls flat with the whole Annie character and there is also a twist about one of the family members that is so simply cliched I had to roll my eyes.
