Another good stand-alone from Scottoline. I like her tendency lately to include a man as a main character. This story is about a woman, Maggie, reuniting with the 17-year-old daughter she has not seen since infancy. It's told in alternating chapters by Maggie and her husband Noah. The back and forth really ratchets up the tension as you know it's leading to a big event. It's almost too much but mercifully the chapters are very short. When the big event hits during a snowstorm it's the usual ridiculous, action-y stuff that would never happen. I'm sure moms don't get to come along on SWAT operations. Great, funny interactions between Maggie and her girlfriend, a cute stepson and a happy ending. What could be better?
