I enjoyed that you essentially get two books in one, with alternating chapters, until almost to the very end when the mystery collides and then it’s like WOW. Don’t You Cry is a suspense-laden novel that unfolds at a leisurely pace. Mary Kubica weaves the two storylines into a great read. While some of the plot is easy to figure out, there are plenty of unexpected twists and turns that will leave readers guessing until the novel’s very dramatic conclusion. A solid 3.5/4 stars
The best part about this book was the ending. I thought I had it figured out but I was totally wrong.
What I struggled with was the characters, or should I say the lack of connection that I felt towards them. In particular I found Quinn to be an awful person - smug, arrogant and really quite annoying. When I get to the end of a book I'm usually at a loss because I kind of miss the characters, but didn't feel the same way with Quinn, nor Alex.
I also felt that the author had developed quite a close relationship with her thesaurus as she wrote this book (overuse of the word apropos!)
Overall, not a bad read but this is far from her best work.
