Don't look away

No one wants to be the mother whose child disappears. It's unthinkable, the stuff of nightmares. But when she turns her back to pay a parking meter, Carrie Morgan becomes that mother. Ben is gone, and more than a year later, it's clear that he is never coming back.

Until he does...for just twenty-four hours, before once again vanishing from his crib without a trace. Rumors start to circulate through Carrie's small town. Whispers that she's seeing things. That her alibi doesn't quite add up.

Her husband and friends start to think she's crazy. The police start to think she's guilty. As the investigation heats up, Carrie must decide what to share, and why. Because the crime is about to be solved... and her secret revealed.

I knew this one would be suspenseful, but I had no idea to what degree. Usually I donÔÇÖt read other reviews of a book I am reading as an advanced readers copy, but as I got a few chapters into the book something started niggling at the back of my mind. This wasnÔÇÖt going to be a straight up suspense read so what was it that I needed to understand before I continued. IÔÇÖm glad I did as it made me open my mind up to the possibilities of what the main character, Carrie Morgan is experiencing.

From the synopsis, you know a child is missing and this his mother is a possible suspect, but only after he comes back and disappears again. What follows is a mother’s perspective on what happened the day her son was taken and just how it happened, the guilt and anguish and eventually we get to why she believes it happened. In CarrieÔÇÖs world nothing is as it seems, but is she crazy or is there something else going on with her senses?

Much of the story is about John and Carrie MorgansÔÇÖ marriage and the state itÔÇÖs left in as they navigate through the minefield that is the loss of their son. The story is mostly from CarrieÔÇÖs perspective but the author includes the backstory of their relationship, which is a mystery in itself. It’s just really hard to get a hold on what motivates John, the doctor, the police, and the members of the community. One More Day is a 3.5 to 4 Star read. I canÔÇÖt settle on one because there are a lot of surprises and IÔÇÖm still noodling through some of the occurrences. Not everything gets wrapped up in a nice bow and in some cases I donÔÇÖt mind this ~ the mystery continues.

Recommendation in the suspense/mystery genre.
