About this deal

In 2009, after Krissy confided in Jodie that she had been the one to stage January’s death as a murder, Krissy says she’s going to tell Dave the truth.

I find it hard to believe that they wouldn’t have looked into this very deeply, given the family’s history. She’s a journalist and takes an interest in a child abduction that looks similar to an unsolved murder of her best friend January when she was just 6 years old.Furthermore, January get knocked down the stairs by the door, and did not know why she fell or who was responsible.

In the book, January’s father Billy, in a fit of rage over discovering that he’s not the biological father of January or her brother, means to harm his wife, but injures his daughter instead. And my favorite… a character kidnapped after standing outside at night and turning her back on an approaching vehicle, whose driver pulls to a stop, the driver exits and an older woman kidnapper grabs the character from behind and drags her back to her vehicle where she forces her inside and drives away.It was suppose to create suspense and have us wondering and hoping… but it just leaves the reader hanging with no resolution - but then the epilogue gives a play by play of another part of the book which took hand holding to the maximum. But if you’re a Crime Junkie (or mystery fan) who has read the book, you know that Ashley and Brit always have a LOT of questions. Characters just tell her things when it seems like it would be in their best interest not to talk to her? My thoughts after reading this book are — Flowers does a great job as the host of the popular podcast, “Crime Junkies.

Twenty-five years ago, January Jacob's parents awoke to find their daughter's bed empty, a horrifying message spray-painted onto their wall. Again, these are SPECULATIVE, UNSUBSTANTIATED theories about the case and no family member was ever charged. For example, the small town police that don’t know how to do a good job, the close minded small town people that don’t know any better….

I have a real problem with the lack of disclosure here, and skating on thin ice with ethics and morals as a human being. While I really appreciated all the twists in the January case and the number of suspects (Dave/Luke, Jace, Krissy, Billy, Elliott) I didn’t find the resolution 100% plausible. The initial article she submits is more of an Anniversary story about January than it is an investigative piece about Natalie. In the twenty years since, Margot has grown up, moved away, and become a big-city journalist, but she’s always been haunted by the fear that it could’ve been her.

The death of January, a little girl who danced and dressed up in costumes that some people thought she wore too much makeup for a little girl and where she was found reminds me about the JonBenet case.January Jacobs was just six years old, when she was found dead in a ditch, hours after her family woke up and found her gone. There is lots of TELLING to fill you in on the background of the January Jacobs case and plenty of interviews in the present day, similar to how a podcast unfolds. I love crime junkie podcast, but can easily pick up on her “cliche wokeness” that is subtly injected. Overall, I greatly enjoyed this debut novel and am excited to see what this author comes up with next.
