After mystery author Diane Christie loses her husband to suicide, she and her son move to the small coastal town of Fog Harbor, Massachusetts. Her daughter is attending college nearby, and Diane hopes that her family can now begin to heal. But rebuilding their lives after the tragedy isn't so simple. Diane's depressed college-age daughter, Alexa, still avoids her, critical of everything Diane does, and even her generally amiable teenage son, Josh, has started acting out.

I tried to give it a go The actor who performed it was good and I’ve listened to her and liked her before but the story cut to each piece messily and wen it got to 1 hour before end I could not take it anymore. The way the killer who most of us listening would already know was revield was so clumsy I couldn’t take anymore. Therefore I give it 2 stars for the story it really should have been more connected and moved from one part to another but was patchworked

Normally I loves these books but one thing kept popping up v near each other was the use of the same phrasing and the use of the same word which did tire after a while. But other then that it was the same good book from her she just needs some new things to write to keep it interesting.

The reason I’m giving this 3 is it’s ok til about 3/4 way through then it all goes silly and because the writer does not want u to think u know what is going to happen they try n twist it and it goes wrong. It’s a bit messy and after that it’s not really enjoyable .

Oh my goodness never in my life have I read a book this boring. For a start Brian frowned was said so much it was really getting on my nerves! Things put in just to fill the story that u think may have relevance to it either now or later as it’s so dull but it doesn’t eg - brain opened his phone and found all of his apps He needed the music app so he scrolled down to where it was n pressed play. On the last sentence u really didn’t need to know what he was doing in such great detail and it was like thatvin a lot about the book. Some bits were ok but I thought really I was reading from some one who was at college age. I read or listen to a lot of books and I thought this was a waste of time.

I do feel sorry for the author of this book as I did not get very far to hear the story. The narrator should of read this book before he narrated it as so poor. It sounds like a child when acting out the story and they don’t know where to stop, change pitch or paragraph. I could not follow the story for this reason the pitch of the voice was all misplaced so you didn’t know when important things were being said or dramatic or just plain full stop or comma. It sounded mish mashed because of this and I really couldn’t go any further so warn I put 3 stars for the review I really didn’t know the story so I apologise for that. Disappointment.

This book has been one of the best books I have read for ages. An avid detective/thriller reader I get through so many. Only a few in years do you come across such a great read. This book has everything and is also just the right amount. Some can overdo things , go on or some finish and you say where is the ending. Not this you have a puzzle with twists and turns as you go This is not a straight forward detective who done it and why. You have storie within story and one minute you think it’s part solved it’s just ripped out beneath you and it follows another path. Also as I said deep character stories even in within each side detective and main event. Then twists at the end yet again. This book had me wanting never to put it down and when I wasn’t reading I wish I was. I’m definitely going to hunt out and read everything this author has done. I’m very picky with narration voices too and this was so well chosen and a match made in heaven not just thrown together. Thank you for such a great read I’m sad it had to end.

This book would be ok if it were aimed at teens but I’m sorry to say that a lot of it was put in that made you think that something would come to it n it was just a filler. There was a lot of the same reference eg lucky laughed or smiled or another person that got on my nerves eg as if a teen themselves had been writing it. Also the book was only part if it were for adults it would have more in-depth plot lines and side lines this was a straight forward story with nothing in between I was going to stop listening but I had nothing else to listen to and I wanted to see how or if it became more complex which itdidnt sorry but this was not a meaty thriller it was a story plain n simple

To Rebecca it was a brave decision that led to her freedom from domestic abuse. To Solomon it was the ultimate betrayal. It's been ten years since Rebecca's testimony saw Solomon locked away. Enough time for the nightmares to recede, the nerves to relax; enough time to rebuild her life and put the past behind her. Then one day a phone rings in her bedroom - but it's not her phone.
