Thank you Netgalley and Simon & Schuster Canada for providing me an eARC
Genre: Mystery & Thriller
My Rating: ⭐⭐1/2
Publication Date: June 18, 2019
I loved All The Missing Girls and was hoping to get the same high with this one. The Perfect Stranger was a complete flop for me and resulted in a DNF. But I believe in second chances and the premise for this one sounded VERY promising.
Unfortunately, I find myself chasing the dragon here.
This was every bit as slow as her last novel in my opinion. The only reason I pressed on was cause I wanted to know what REALLY happened with Sadie, which I had already guessed after the first few chapters.
Although my review sounds mainly negative, there were a couple of things I enjoyed. Megan Miranda managed to create a very picturesque setting, which I liked and I appreciated the alternating timelines. She did manage to throw in a bit of a twist, but nothing that took my breathe away.
Sorry..I really wanted to love this one and hoped it would be the IT book of summer 2019. But sadly, there was no redemption here for me.
Have you read this yet? Or any other Megan Miranda books?
Littleport, Maine is like two separate towns: a vacation paradise for wealthy holidaymakers and a simple harbour community for the residents who serve them. Friendships between locals and visitors are unheard of – but that’s just what happened with Avery Greer and Sadie Loman.
Each summer for a decade the girls are inseparable – until Sadie is found dead. When the police rule the death a suicide, Avery can’t help but feel there are those in the community, including a local detective and Sadie’s brother Parker, who blame her. Someone knows more than they’re saying, and Avery is intent on clearing her name before the facts get twisted against her.
