If you like:

-Multiple POV’s
-Plot twists
-domestic thrillers
-unreliable characters

I wasn’t feelin her last book, but I feel like Mary Kubica really amped up her game with the storyline for this one.  From the creepy looking house, the murder and the introduction of Camille & Mouse 😳

While I enjoyed it as a whole, I wasn’t mind blown like I wanted to be:

-It was a bit slow and lackluster after the 2nd chapter.

-There was some repetitiveness, but there was a reason for it, which I don’t want to give any spoilers.

– I figured out the plot twists within the first 3 chapters.  But having read Kubica’s work before, I already expected a predictable read.

Overall, I loved the ending and still found myself flipping the pages at 2am.  Definitely a worthwhile read.

Have you read it? Have you read any of her other books? Sadie and Will Foust have only just moved their family from bustling Chicago to small-town Maine when their neighbor, Morgan Baines, is found dead in her home. The murder rocks their tiny coastal island, but no one is more shaken than Sadie, who is terrified by the thought of a killer in her very own backyard.

But it’s not just Morgan’s death that has Sadie on edge. It’s their eerie old home, with its decrepit decor and creepy attic, which they inherited from Will’s sister after she died unexpectedly. It’s Will’s disturbed teenage niece Imogen, with her dark and threatening presence. And it’s the troubling past that continues to wear at the seams of their family.

As the eyes of suspicion turn toward the new family in town, Sadie is drawn deeper into the mystery of Morgan’s death. But Sadie must be careful, for the more she discovers about Mrs. Baines, the more she begins to realize just how much she has to lose if the truth ever comes to light.
