"Margot Lewis is the agony aunt for The Cambridge Examiner. Her advice column, Dear Amy, gets all kinds of letters - but none like the one she's just received:

Dear Amy, 
I don't know where I am. I've been kidnapped and am being held prisoner by a strange man. I'm afraid he'll kill me. 
Please help me soon, 
Bethan Avery

Bethan Avery has been missing for years. This is surely some cruel hoax. But, as more letters arrive, they contain information that was never made public. How is this happening? Answering this question will cost Margot everything . . ."

I had such high expectation for Dear Amy. I thought it would be right up my street, but I just couldn't get into it. at one point, I began to feel like I was forcing myself to read. I spent almost 2 weeks trying to read Dear Amy and I only reached 34%. I don't take two weeks to read a book this size, ever.

I felt that I just couldn't connect with Margot whatsoever. I honestly felt that she was a bit boring, even with her slightly mysterious past. I also felt that the pacing was a bit slow. it just didn't grip me or hook me in.

I wouldn't really say there is anything particularly bad about Dear Amy. It does seem a nice enough book. It's just not for me at this particular timer. I'm sure others (especially looking at Goodreads) will find Dear Amy very enjoyable.
