APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Sometimes knowing the truth is worse than staying in the dark. Best-selling thriller writer Mary Kubica (The Good Girl) draws us into a horrifying mystery about small-town secrets. Sadie Foust and her husband, Will, have seen more than their fair share of dysfunction, so when Will’s sister dies, leaving the Fousts her home and custody of her teenage daughter, the couple decide to embrace the change and move from Chicago to rural Maine. Unfortunately, when a brutal murder happens right next door just after they move in, the whole town starts giving the newcomers side-eye, and the terrible secrets Will and Sadie left behind all threaten to come to light. Kubica is an expert at playing with our expectations—and the storytelling by veteran narrators Piper Goodeve and Jeremy Arthur put us further on edge with every new conflict, especially since almost no one in the Fousts’ new hometown is what they first appear to be. Kubica’s white-knuckle thriller kept us off-balance until the final twist, a shocking reveal that made us want to listen to the whole thing all over again.
Good but predictable
Had the main character figured out early on. Kinda made it boring but kept going to see how all the pieces connected. Good listening but not something that held my 100% focus.
This book had me on the edge of my seat! It’s thrilling and has suspense!
Twist and Turn
This book takes several twists. Keeping me on my toes. It was a slow start but once it got going I couldn’t put it down!
