APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
This thriller reeled us in with a tense opening chapter about a double shooting and completely shocked us with its final revelation. In between, Claire Douglas’ clever whydunnit uncovers long-buried secrets in a peaceful coastal town while thoughtfully exploring childhood bonds and mother-daughter relationships. The characters are absorbingly rich and convincing—particularly Jess, a journalist returning to her childhood home to investigate the killings and finally confront a dark moment from her past.
