I enjoyed this book for the most part -- it had echoes of "The Weight of Water" but lacked the literary tightness. Still, one is drawn into the story, wanting and caring to know the outcome.
I thought the protagonist, Abby, was a sympathetically portrayed character whose distress and subsequent actions after a momentary lapse of supervision over a small girl were believable, and that readers/listeners can readily relate to her overwhelming feelings of guilt and confusion. The introductory passages to the chapters were intriguing, and I hope that the author's future writing will reflect more of the ambiguity of life and less of the "tie up all the loose ends" like a TV drama.
In short, I don't think you would be disappointed in this book or regret spending money on it, but you may find some irksome - though not critical - flaws.

What was most disappointing about Michelle Richmond’s story?
Nothing happened until the end. It was Abby searching everyday for almost a year with nothing. Several side trips of her life which had nothing to do with the story. I wouldn't recommend it. Strange ending
What aspect of Carrington Macduffie’s performance would you have changed?
She was ok
What character would you cut from The Year of Fog?
Any additional comments?
There were many loopholes. Some of the happenings just didn't have any meaning to the story. Finding Emma's shoe, then nothing? It was basically boring. It could have been exciting
