a hot, sticky day - one that Alice Halpern will not forget.
Each day, Alice waited in the park across the street from the
school. It wouldn't be long before the children headed out the
door to meet parents waiting for them. Alice also met her best
friend, Lauren, at the park each day.
however, was different. As Alice waited, she tried to remember
if Lauren mentioned anything yesterday about going on an errand this
morning or something to explain why she was late. Lauren was
pregnant and very close to her delivery date. It was
getting later and there still was no sign of Lauren. The only
explanation Alice could come up with is that Lauren must be in the
hospital delivering her baby.
A check of the hospitals
revealed that Lauren was not admitted. In addition, Lauren's
husband did not hear from her.
What happened to Lauren?
Alice, who is also pregnant with twins, realizes she is
being followed. Who could this possibly be? What do they
want with Alice?
Kate Pepper has written a novel full of
suspense. You will be kept on the edge of your seat right from
page one. The reader will be kept guessing as to what happened
to Lauren. The book has a great plot, which is nicely
integrated with each character. Be sure to add this one to
your reading list. It is highly recommended.
