Summary

Everyone believes Rachel is dead. But she’s very much alive. 

Rachel Scott Emery’s life unravels when she comes upon an old news article online that states she was killed 35 years ago at the age of eight. Even more shocking is her murderer was her then 16-year-old brother. 

Realizing she must untangle the mess, Rachel leaves her Tallahassee, Florida, home and goes back to Casita, California, to prove she is still alive. But going home again isn’t easy. Believing that her parents had relinquished custody of her years ago to her beloved aunt and uncle, she slowly learns what really happened. And unearthing the truth, when so many in town want to leave it buried, becomes a daunting and dangerous task. What really happened the day little Rachel left town? And who is the little girl buried in the grave?

GREAT NEW FIRST IN SERIES

I really enjoyed this first book in the Rachel Parnell/Scott series. Rachel is an intelligent protagonist without being brash or antagonistic. She is strong enough to show her vulnerability without whining. The mystery is replete with misdirection, but not overwhelmingly so. I also like Avery and hope he sticks around. Just bought book 2. Let's see how Rachel's story continues.

Rachel?

This was a great audio especially the ending. The narrative was precise and the story really picked up towards the last few chapters. I would definitely listen to this author again.

Unable to put down

I listened to The Truth About Rachel in one day. It is well-written and hard to put down, with a likable main character and plot twists I didn't see coming. I've read all of Deanna's books and really enjoyed this new genre. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Wow!!

Oh my goodness this book kept me on the edge of my seat. I couldn’t figure out The Who and why. It less than two days to read it and now I know it’s a series I can’t wait for the next one. Deanna is such a great story teller I have read everything she has written all because I won one her books and I’ve been reading ever since. I highly highly recommend any of her books to anyone.
