Secrets worth dying—and killing—for, in a novel of suspense inspired by a horrific true crime by Washington Post and Amazon Charts bestselling author Loreth Anne White.When the battered body of a female jogger is found beneath the cliffs of an idyllic coastal community, these perfect neighbors suddenly don’t seem so perfect…Lily Bradley is a respected psychotherapist married to a distinguished professor. They live in a dream house with their two children in close-knit Story Cove. Lily lives a well-ordered life. Or so it seems. As a therapist, she knows everyone keeps things hidden. Even her.Then sensual and free-spirited Arwen Harper rolls into town in her hand-painted VW van, her sixteen-year-old son riding shotgun. Overnight, Story Cove’s secrets are no longer safe. Because Arwen might know her new neighbors better than they know themselves.Now someone is dead, and it looks like murder. Brutal and personal. The death invites the shrewd eye of Detective Rue Duval. Rue’s job is to expose secrets. But she’s also an expert at keeping them.As the lives of three women become inexorably entwined, one thing is clear: when it comes to survival, ordinary people can do the most terrible things.
I was a little iffy on this novel after reading the short description, but am so glad I read it. The novel alternates between different timeframes and narrators, filling in the past little by little. Will definitely seeks out more of this author’s work.
This book leads the reader down many rabbit holes until the very end! I highly recommend it. But don’t read the ending first!
Great book. Too bad the author felt the need to inject her hate for the white conservative reader. “He’s judging her. Judging her whole stupid, conservative, privileged, white family—she can see it, feel it.”
Fast paced riveting and uplifting in the end. Thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish. Great character development. Very complex stimulating.
The plot of the story was a page turner but the characters were awful. The trust and turns in the plot kept be reading each characters antics was getting old after a while
This book will leave you guessing until the end. A wife, a husband, a lover? Everyone has a story to tell.
