McKenna’s obsession with her missing friend, Susan, took over her life ten years ago, and it takes over her life again when she tries to find the current heroine who she believes is Susan. This author does a great job bringing her characters to life, and the reader feels sympathy for McKenna who seems to hit one stumbling block after another on her quest for answers. While her husband seems supportive, he is obviously attempting to steer her away from this quest. Her boss also seems supportive, until things start falling apart at work.
If You Were Here has multiple interesting threads, but the author pulls it together in the end and leaves us feeling satisfied and ready for her next novel.
