Still Mine by Amy Stuart
I loved this book. Clare the lead character has plenty of demons and she confronts them all when she embarks on a journey to find a missing woman in the foothills of coal country. The mysterious Malcom sends her on this job/mission purely by happenstance, or is it? Mostly, Clare is running from an abusive husband. She is an ex-drug user and truly down on her luck, sleeping in her car and running on fumes. All of the characters in this story were richly developed and many were just pure evil. You don't know who to trust. The story was fully developed, and while not an altogether new premise, the ending is tense and lingering, which left kind of an icky but good feeling. I look forward to reading more from this author. Netgalley.com kindly provided me a free copy of this book for an honest review.
