Don’t You Cry by Mary Kubica


27821486

When Quinn Collins set out to live on her own, she answered an ad for a roommate and moved in with Esther Vaughan never dreaming that Esther would turn out to become her best friend.  Then one morning she awakes to the sound of Esther’s alarm going off but Esther’s not in her room and her bedroom window is wide open to the freezing cold Chicago air.  Surely she didn’t climb down the fire escape in the middle of the night!  Quinn waits in vain for Esther to return but it doesn’t happen.  It seems that Esther has disappeared!  Was she kidnapped?  Did she run away from something?  Quinn idolizes Esther and she can’t imagine what has happened to her.  She enlists the help of her friend Ben from work and tries to figure out where Esther is.  But the more Quinn tries to puzzle through what happened to Esther, the more she realizes how little she really knows about her friend.  She’s beginning to think that Esther is not the saint that she always imagined.

Meanwhile, in a small town near Lake Michigan, a young man named Alex Gallo has given up his dream of college to take care of his father who became a good-for-nothing drunkard when his mother left.  He spends his hopeless days working as a dishwasher in the Priddy’s café.  One day a new customer comes in and she’s a young woman he has never seen around town before.  Alex gives the woman the name “Pearl” and he finds her to be quite an intriguing mystery.  He sets his sights on finding out more about her.  But Alex’s boredom and loneliness may be leading him down a dangerous road.

Don’t You Cry is full of suspense and the details of each storyline will keep the reader guessing right up until the end.  Piece by piece the puzzle falls into place until the big reveal.  This is one of those where you think you have it all figured out but you never quite get there.  A fast-paced and compelling read!

I want to thank the publisher (Harlequin- US & Canada) for providing me with the ARC through NetGalley for an honest review.
