I d probably bump this up to 25 stars but this book just didn t work for me I loved Blue Heaven and i think I was expecting something similar I think authors make their antagonists interesting when they have realistic but flawed or bad motives The cops in Blue Heaven were bad guys but bad guys that grew cold and cynical and ugly over the years The bad guys in Three Weeks were justevil Evil for no particular reason except that they were I don t know born that way And that made the story infinitely tedious to me The writing didn t flow as easily either it just felt choppy and ungainly Jack and Melissa McGuane have adopted a baby At 9 months old she s the love of their life until the agency says Whoops Sorry for the screw up The teenage father didn t sign the adoption papers 18 year old Garrett who I think is your standard teen sociopath gets his father a Federal Court judge involved in this mess and he tells the McGuanes they have you guessed it Three Weeks To Say Goodbye to baby Angelina But of course both the baby daddy AND his father are not what they seem cue mustache twirling evil and Jack needs to take them down before they take away his baby In 3 weeks Hopefully without killings someone in a fit of rage and going to jail And then there s a subplot regarding Jack s job that is somewhat related but mostly uninteresting and I just couldn t get too attached to anyone in particular Which was too bad because I totally wanted to But I couldn t So blah
