Publisher Description

Darby Kane thrills with this twisty domestic suspense novel that asks one central question: shouldn't a dead husband stay dead?

Lila Ridgefield lives in an idyllic college town, but not everything is what it seems. Lila isn’t what she seems.

A student vanished months ago. Now, Lila’s husband, Aaron, is also missing. At first these cases are treated as horrible coincidences until it’s discovered the student is really the third of three unexplained disappearances over the last few years. The police are desperate to find the connection, if there even is one. Little do they know they might be stumbling over only part of the truth….

With the small town in an uproar, everyone is worried about the whereabouts of their beloved high school teacher. Everyone except Lila, his wife. She’s definitely confused about her missing husband but only because she was the last person to see his body, and now it’s gone.

Finished this in less than a week!! Had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. A real page turner!


Slow burn taken too far

The ending of this novel is satisfactory and leaves the reader feeling like loose ends are tied up nicely.
The unfortunate thing about this (at times excruciating) slow burn format is just that, much too slow to grab attention. The character development comes too late in the story making this piece an “I paid for it so I’m determined to slog my way through to the end” novel.
I will not try another offering by this author; with so many female protagonist mysteries available I will move on to (hopefully) much better reads.
For reference it took me more than two months to slog through this and I read 3 other novels during that time as well.
