Winner of the Anthony Award for Best First Novel, the Agatha Award for Best First Novel, and the Mary Higgins Clark Award

   When she sees what looks like a child tumbling from a ferry into frigid Lake Champlain, Troy Chance dives in without thinking. When she gets the child to shore she discovers that his name is Paul, he speaks only French—and no one seems to be looking for him. 
   Her determination to protect Paul pulls Troy from her quiet life in a small Adirondack town into an unfamiliar world of wealth and privilege in Canada and then in Vermont. Her attachment to him—and the danger she faces when she tries to unravel the mystery of his abandonment—force her to evaluate everything she thought true about herself. 
   Sara J. Henry's riveting, award-winning debut will keep readers engrossed right up to its shattering conclusion.

From the Hardcover edition.

I enjoyed this book but wished it had a more Hollywood ending. It was exciting though and kept me guessing.

Good mystery which always peaks my interest. Avoided to much romantic nonsense. Liked the main character and her dog, also, her friends were quite interesting. Enjoyed the story line.

Nancy Drew meets Scoobie Doo
July 4th, 2015
Not bad, loses its way and drags on a little in the middle, but still enjoyable. Characters seemed a little bit too perfect even with their flaws. Not sure if this is aimed at adults or young adults. I like my thrillers to be a bit darker.
