Welcome back to the sleepy little town of Shakespeare, Arkansas, where secrets come to hide. Lily Bard has joined a group therapy session with counselor Tamsin Lynd, determined finally to face her violent past. It sounds positively enlightening, until the murder of a fellow member sends a warning. But who was the message meant for? Why? And who's next to fall victim to a killer's head games?

A crime story set in an unconventional situation.
Lily. A very convincing, complex character.
She was fine narrating a woman, but her narration of male characters was dreadful. She made them all sound at best wooden, at worst, robots. It was a repeated distraction for me. I would be inclined to read the other books in the series if she was narrating the audio editions.
It was too long to do so in day-to-day life, but certainly engaging enough to do so if travelling.
Having just discovered this series I listened to all of them one after the other in order.
I would definitely recommend to others.
The stories are well constructed and interesting with appropriate voice and characterisation. I loved that Lily's character grew from book to book.
Her voice evoked the setting of the book very well for me. The light southern accents and nuances of the characters.
