2015 Book #29–Dead Weight

deadweightThe second Lizzy Gardner book. Dead Weight starts with a teenager on her own near the forests by Tahoe. She disappears, after her car breaks down. Twenty years later, Lizzy is hired to find out what happened. At the same time, she’s also hired to look for an obese girl  that disappeared.

Meanwhile, we have some insight into women locked in a cabin, by someone that’s forcing them to lose weight, but it’s hard to tell if this is something they want or it’s against their will.

It's a ride, as Lizzy is her usual tenacious, but also flawed self. We see the characters of Hayley and Jessica develop a bit and we also have Lizzy trying to get closer to Jared in this one. It's not a great book, but it's an evolution and while it contains some murders, we don't have the completely crazy ride with serial killers.

However we do get to see Hayley confront the guy that's abused her mother at the end, leaving us with a cliffhanger of sorts.
