Could a lifetime of memories…be a lifetime of lies?
All her life Ryan Gracey watched her perfect older sister from afar. Knowing she could never top Wendy’s achievements, she didn’t even try. Instead Ryan forged her own path while her family barely seemed to notice.
Now Wendy shares two little girls with her perfect husband while Ryan mourns the man she lost after a nearly fatal mistake in judgment. The sisters’ choices have taken them in different directions, which is why Ryan is stunned when Wendy calls, begging for her help. There’s been a murder—and Wendy believes she’ll be wrongfully accused.
While Wendy lies low, Ryan moves back to their hometown to care for the nieces she hardly knows. The sleuthing skills she’s refined as a true-crime podcaster quickly rise to the surface as she digs for answers with the help of an unexpected ally. Yet the trail of clues Wendy’s left behind lead to nothing but questions. Blood may be thicker than water, but what does Ryan owe a sister who, with every revelation, becomes more and more a stranger?
Is Wendy, who always seemed so perfect, just a perfect liar—or worse?

Fantastic and suspenseful
This novel couldn’t have a more perfect title. The Gracey’s first born daughter, Wendy, is 18 years older than her sister, Ryan Rosie, making their lives pretty much separate. They are strangers to each other. But when Wendy gets in trouble, she calls on Ryan to help her out of a dangerous situation. As Ryan explores the mystery of what has happened to her sister and where she disappeared to, she moves in with Wendy’s young daughters. She discovers many life-changing lies and deceptions in her search. This novel brilliantly blends together family and suspense, and with so many twists and turns, I was drawn into every written word and the passion Emilie Richards put into the story. I highly recommend this book.
A fantastic suspenseful read
This may be the first book I’ve read by Emilie Richards, but it definitely won’t be my last. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough, that’s how much I loved this book. This book has so much suspense and of course some romance. I really enjoyed reading about Ryan Gracey and her second chance with Mateo Santiago. Ryan returns to Seabank at the request of her sister, Wendy. Wendy needs to disappear, so she’s not arrested for murder. Mom has to take care of dad, he just had heart surgery, so Ryan is needed to take care of her two nieces, Holly and Noelle. I’m not going to leave any spoilers because I think everyone should read this amazing book. There are so many secrets that are revealed, you’ll be flipping the pages to see what happens next. I can’t wait to read many more books from this author. I’ve got twelve waiting on my kindle app, lol.
I received an advance reader copy of this book and this is my voluntary and honest review.
