Thank you to @netgalley for the #gifted book.

Summary: At a preschool picnic, 5 children are kidnapped including Ivy, the granddaughter of Homicide Detective Kate Wakeland. For three and a half years, there are no clues. Then one day, all the kids are returned, except Ivy who the children say is dead. Detective Kate Wakeland refuses to stop investigating until she knows for sure what happened to Ivy.

💭The premise of this book was interesting. From the very beginning, it was clear that something was being missed by investigators leading to a lot of red herrings and twists. The novel is basically split into two halves – the first while the kids are missing, and the second when all but Ivy are returned. The pacing in each part was different as well. The second part seemed to go much faster, but also seemed long. As the mystery was unraveling I grew more and more frustrated with the investigative team other than Kate. I would not want that crew investigating anything for me. 

Overall, I liked the way the story wrapped up but it was about 100 pages too long.
