An electrifying tale of deceit and obsession

In downtown Chicago, Esther Vaughan disappears from her apartment without a trace. A haunting letter addressed to My Dearest is found among her possessions, leaving her roommate Quinn Collins to question how well she really knew her friend. Meanwhile, in a small town an hour outside Chicago, a mysterious woman appears in the quiet coffee shop where eighteen-year-old Alex Gallo works as a dishwasher. He is immediately drawn to her, but what starts as an innocent crush quickly spirals into something far more sinister.

As Quinn searches for answers about Esther, and Alex is drawn further under the stranger’s spell, master of suspense Mary Kubica takes readers on a taut and twisted thrill ride that builds to a stunning conclusion and shows that no matter how fast and far we run, the past always catches up with us.

Don't You Cry is how somebody's past can effect people in two different places at the same time. Downtown Chicago, a young woman by the name of Esther goes missing and her roommate Quinn, is left wondering when is she gonna return and if she is who she says she is. In a small Michigan harbor town just a hour north of Chicago, a eighteen year old Alex notices a newcomer to the town and gets drawn into what will be something that he never saw coming! After Esther goes missing, Quinn wonders if she did something wrong and starts searching her room and finds stuff that makes her wonder who Esther really is. When Quinn starts to get more into what really happened to the former roommate before her, nothing is adding up like it should. With Alex drawn to this new stranger whom he has nicknamed Pearl, the things she does gets him to question everything about her. It all leads to an explosive ending with questions answered in both towns about what is really going on and how they are related to each other, it's the ending that will have you on edge until the very last word! OMG!! This book had me on the edge of my seat from the first few pages to the last word just trying to figure everything out and I sure didn't see what really happened until the end! This book will have you not do anything until you finish reading it, yes it's that good! I loved how everything takes place within five days and having the chapters go in between Quinn and Alex was perfect in how it built up to the dramatic ending! I have only heard good things about Mary Kubica's books and now that I have read her latest one, I can see the hype and I'm definitely gonna have to go back and read the previous two! Thank You to Mary Kubica for writing this heart stopping novel that made me a fan of yours for life! I received this book from the BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge 2016!

Overall the book was very slow moving. It took 200 of the 292 pages to develop a plot that at best didn't make much sense and at worse, just uninteresting. Definitely not worth the time. Just stop at Pretty Baby and The Good Girl

I've read Mary Kubicas The good girl and pretty baby and loved them both but dont you cry is her best one yet! The plot twist is insane and really kept me on my toes until the very end! Finished this book in less than a day!

Don't You Cry by Mary Kubica is a Psychological Suspense. This is the second book of Mary's that I have read and once again it was a bit hard for me to get into the book, but I am glad I pushed through because it is totally worth it! She does a great job with twists in the books that keep you guessing. I look forward to reading more of her books in the future.

My friend recommended this book to me, so I was excited to read it. Unfortunately, I didn’t like it. It took a long time to get into the story. It moved very slowly. There was a lot of description and not a lot of action. What was the most frustrating was the ending. There was no way I could have guessed what would happen. It took me a minute to understand what was happening because it was all twisted up and complicated. Some of the issues weren’t even resolved, or didn’t have a logical conclusion. This book didn’t work for me.

Mary Kubica has quite a visual narration. You’d have no trouble picturing it. I love how different the three main characters are wired and how much they contrast with each other. Comparisons to a certain popular super-hyped book might have spoiled this for me. I read this book with a heavy feeling that I’ve figured it out way in the beginning. But I was wrong! Not exactly original, some would say it’s been done & derivative but I’m satisfied. The hype totally spoiled this book for me though, I could’ve done without it and enjoyed Don’t You Cry more. The whole novel happens within a week. What pulls these two separate events together? Alex’s physical description of Pearl matches Quinn’s description of Esther... Readers can’t help but suspect that Pearl is Esther. Is that really the case? The author never really confirms these suspicions. I could feel a plot twist coming a mile away.

Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Also pathetic that I posted this morning July 3rd 2017 how bad this book was and my post was deleted. If you ask for an honest review; why delete it.? I read her other books and was expecting a similar work. Boring, annoying and characters that no one would care about. $$$$$$$$$ instead of art now ? Delete this review and nook will never get another purchase from me.

This has been the most boring book I've ever read. There is so much narrative on things that don't matter to the story. It is so painfully slow. Many times I even considered giving up on the book but I continued believing it could get better but it did not. Word of advice if you're considering spending money of this book do yourself a favor and don't waste your time or money.

Way too long. Took almost 250 pages for the plot to become evident. I enjoyed her other book. This one had too much description and not enough dialogue.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings Two stories are moving forward at the same and you wonder when and how they may intersect and although it takes awhile they do and in a big way! Quinn narrates one side of the story and her room mate has gone missing and as she tries to find her she finds out a lot of secrets that her room mate had. The other story is narrated by Alex who chose to stay in his home town instead of going off to college and he is following this new mysterious girl who will change his life.

Be prepared to read way past your bedtime. Written in the voice of the two lead characters, Quinn and Alex, the story of Esther is told. Both see her in totally different ways. Quinn knows her as the Saint Esther, the perfect roommate and best friend who disappeared one night while Quinn was out. Alex knows her as the mysterious girl who shows up in his town whom he nicknames Pearl. Alex is drawn to Pearl and wants to know what she is doing in his town and staying in the supposedly haunted abandoned house across from his. In the end, both Quinn and Alex’s worlds are rocked by the truth they discover. Nothing is as it seems. I was so enthralled with this book I couldn’t put the book down and was up late into the night reading it. Usually I can figure out the endings but this one was a huge surprise. This is the first book by Mary Kubica that I have read and it definitely won’t be the last.

I tried piecing this novel together and I was totally wrong, man…..she had me! I knew it had to be twisted but I guess my mind is more warped than Mary’s as I had a slew of scenarios running through my mind as the final chapters were drawing near. I guess perhaps I could have seen the true signs but then I would have been trying too hard to analyze each situation and what fun would that have been? The story is told in alternating chapters labeled Quinn and Alex addressing each of their lives and as I read, I was trying to figure out just how they were going to be connected in the end. Their stories were totally different and I was really struggling to connect them. It became a game where I tried to forget about their connection and just enjoyed their stories until I thought of something within their stories and then I was back on the mission again to connect them. Suddenly, there were major moments within their stories and I was breathless. I had to read it again. I was now in book mode where nothing else matters in the world but this novel. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough and I thought here is when the two stories will emerge together but no, it didn’t happen. The excitement within the stories was vivid and intense. It never let up and I didn’t want to be a fly on the wall, I wanted to be hiding in a closet and see it, feel it and live it with the characters. As my clock approached 1:30 am, my eyes fading, I had to call it a night; I didn’t want to miss the ending as I have come this far. At 5 am, I read those final five chapters; it was a great way to start my morning. Mary had put closer to this novel, something that I needed but something I didn’t see coming. I have now been touched by the lives of Quinn and Alex and what happens to them now, remains a mystery. Pearl and Ester have entered my life now too and where they go, I do not know but they have definitely made this novel more interesting.

I read her first 2 books and LOVED THEM. I was so excited to read this one. Big let down. I dragged on and on.

I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review This book started slowly and innocuously, and bit by bit built up the tension and foreboding to culminate in an exciting climax that I, at least, never saw coming. The story is narrated by two people living in different towns, who don’t meet: Quinn, the irresponsible flatmate of the missing Esther; and Alex, the lonely 18 year-old boy, who has turned down a scholarship to a good university to look after his alcoholic father. Quinn becomes obsessed with finding the woman she thought was her best friend, Alex is obsessed with getting to know the beautiful new woman in town. For both of them, the woman has been a lone beacon in their depressing lives. The big question is – are they the same woman? Both Alex and Quinn soon realise that the object of their obsession is not quite who they thought she was, and in particular, that it might not be beneficial to their health to have her in their lives. Admiration gradually and then increasingly quickly dissolves into fear. The contrast in pace from the almost somnolent beginning to the frantic ending works very well, and I enjoyed the book more and more, the further I got into it. My reading speed increased with the pace of the action. Think of Grieg’s “Hall of the Mountain King” as an appropriate soundtrack. Often at the end of a book I want more, but this time I hope there is no sequel, as the book is a perfect standalone, and the characters need to leave their futures open in the reader’s mind. I will, however, look forward to reading other books by the same author, as she has done an outstanding job here.
