Summary

An Amazon Charts bestseller.

It takes more than a lie to hide the dark secrets of this picture-perfect family.

When the granddaughter of one of Florida’s most powerful judges disappears, it triggers a personal trauma for Detective Alice Garner: the kidnapping and murder of her own child. As a flood of painful memories comes rushing back, Alice sees herself in the guilt-ridden and emotionally fragile mother Charlotte Burke, who has become the target of a rush to judgment.

All too familiar with Charlotte’s situation, Alice is reluctant to cast any blame. Her gut instincts tell her that Charlotte’s anguish is rooted in something else - somewhere too dark for the truth to be seen. And Alice believes that it’s hiding behind the façade of the illustrious and guarded Burke mansion.

But uncovering Charlotte’s past comes with a risk. For Alice’s own life is becoming entangled in the secrets and lies of the picture-perfect family - an image that is about to be shattered in so many unexpected ways.

Good Book

I can't put it down, the F word was used too many times, I am sure an other word could have been used

Ok

Story was just ok. A little hard to follow. And not a good wrap up at the end.

amazingly heartbreaking

This is a story that will make contemplate the question "what would YOU do?" The story skips around in time quite a bit, and at times it was hard to keep it all straight in my head. But wow oh wow! Worth the listen

I did like the twist

It wasn't bad, the story was surprising, but it was rather hard to get into it and the way it ends really don't satisfy the reader in my opinion.

Not great

Took to long to get into the book. The narrator child’s voice was creepy. Flashbacks were confusing.

Sad but all too real

The twists kept coming.
The narration was good except for the Southern drawls seemed a little much for a story based in St. Petersburg, Fl. - it sounded more like the deep south.

Difficult to keep track

It was difficult keeping track of the timeline, it every character kept jumping back in forth between events

Surprised

I liked the build up of each character and all their faults. It actually made it hard to decide who the bad guy was. I decided several times and set it aside only to just guess half of it from early on but was totally surprised by the ending.
I will probably read more from this author now.

An all-nighter!

Couldn't put it down, yet hated for it to end! Lots of twists and turns!
