"Chasing Amanda" is one of those great mysteries that keeps you guessing until the end. Just when you think you've solved it, something else happens that makes you rethink what you think you know. There were so many plot twists and turns, and some of it was a bit hard to keep track of. But once you get to the end, like any good mystery, the answers are provided to you. There were a lot of great characters, and they mixed together very well. The amount of characters and their individual characteristics and storylines helped provide more of a mystery, and less chance of figuring out the anwers until the author was ready for you to know them. I've read Foster's book "Come Back to Me," which I enjoyed, but "Chasing Amanda" is the best so far! I hope she writes more mysteries in the future. She's very good at it!
