The Day I Died

51iNRfIOmVL._SY346_The Day I Died by Lori Rader-Day was sent to me by William Morrow for a “Reading Group Choices” contest. Anna is a handwriting expert who usually tells companies who to hire and gives advice to the lovelorn. When she is asked to help with a missing child case in the new town where she and her son have moved, things go awry. The story alludes to Anna’s past and we get small snippets as we read, but I had trouble keeping track of the characters and found the snippets distracting and unnecessarily cryptic. Overall, while I wanted to like this story, I didn’t find it to be well-told and was ready for it to be over when it ended. I’d give this one a skip.
