This story goes back and forth between Jessica and Kim.
Jessica Gold has disappeared on Christmas Eve. She's being held captive by a very sick and twisted man who gives her a horrible gift each day to mark the twelve days of Christmas.
Kim is the police officer assigned to Jessica's case. She's torn between her job and the promotion she so badly wants, and a life with her husband and two children.
The first part of this book was excellent! Five stars! It was very well-written. Jessica's fear and desperation were palpable. While I appreciate how things played out in the second part, it just didn't captivate me the way the first part did. The more I read about Kim the more I didn't like her. Things seemed a little too convenient when it came to her.
