Finished The Day I Died by Lori Rader-Day. I received a copy for review.
Anna is a handwriting expert. If she looks at something you’ve written, she can understand virtually anything about your personality. She’s currently helping police try and find a missing toddler; his mom allegedly killed the babysitter, took him and ran. What most people don’t know is that Anna and her own son, Joshua, are also on the run. She didn’t kill anyone but she did escape an abusive relationship when she learned she was pregnant with Joshua. Now (13 years later), she’s going to have to deal with Joshua’s ever-increasing questions.
I really enjoyed this book. It’s not really a thriller but it’s still incredibly suspenseful.
Even though a little boy is missing, you could make the case that this is more character-driven than plot-driven. If you don’t love the characters, this is going to be a hard read. (I loved the characters.)
