FICTION, WOMEN'S FICTION, ADVANCE READING COPY
After Anna is the latest novel from Lisa Scottoline. The story is about how Maggie is suddenly reunited with her daughter, Anna. It was years before that Maggie was declared an unfit mother, but now Maggie has the chance to be in the life of the daughter she has always loved. Things go bad almost immediately, and Anna is murdered. Wow, right? Maggie is crushed, no, she's beyond crushed, when her husband Noah is arrested for the crime. The book is a quick read, and I did have my suspicions about events, which nearly never happens to me. My main complaint about the book? I feel the ending is abrupt. I wanted another chapter to blend and wrap up this traumatic novel. But, it started fast, so maybe it's okay for it to end fast too.
I received an Advanced Reading Copy of this novel. This is my honest review.
