Extra Book - Buried Deep

Book: Buried Deep
Author: Margot Hunt
Pages: - unknown (audio only) - 2 hours and 38 minutes

This is my 11th book for the year.

Another audio book.  This one thanks, again, to the gift from my sister in law.

This is the story of Maggie.  After 20 years of marriage, Maggie and her husband James are getting ready to celebrate their birthday.  Their daughter has recently gone off to college and they are new empty nesters.  Maggie is feeling pretty satisfied with her life with her sweet, smart daugther and loving, caring husband.  That is until one day the police show up at her door looking for James.  The remains of an old girlfriend of his have been found and he is their prime suspect.  

Maggie, thinking she knows her husband better than anyone, knows her husband is innocent.  She starts to piece together the story of Hannah -the dead girl - and all the people that were with James when Hannah disappeared.  In despiration to clear her husband's name, Maggie starts to find out things about her husband's past she wished she never knew.

This was an okay book. It is super short.  I listened to it during one afternoon of errands.  If it wasn't a free book, I would have never chosen it.  You don't really have time to get invested in the characters, and it is really hard to build a mystery in such a short time period.  Especially one revolving around a murder.  It was too easily wrapped up in my case with not a very good ending.

It was entertaining enough to listen to, but unless you can get this one for free, I wouldn't bother.
