They live in the big houses on the pretty street. Those other women, as we call them. And to think I used to want to be like them, to have their money and happiness, to live and laugh and play like them. Not any more.
It’s the fourth of July and the whole town is gathered at the local pool. Through the sweltering afternoon, we single mothers don’t mix with the other women––the ones with the perfect lives and happy marriages. Women like Sabine Miller. But when Sabine shoots me a desperate look across the water and suddenly disappears, my blood runs cold…
Running to the back gate, all I find is a silver charm bracelet she dropped on her way out. I convince myself I’m imagining things until Sabine’s husband Mark appears. When he realizes she’s missing, he phones the cops straight away. “Someone has been threatening Sabine,” he says. “Now they’ve kidnapped her.”
Hours later, I wish I’d run faster. The whole town is searching the streets, calling Sabine’s name over and over. On the TV, Mark is begging for someone to bring his wife home.
The truth is, I was the last person to see her alive––and it’s killing me inside. Now the cops are at my door asking questions. I’m terrified they’ll find out what happened years ago between me and Sabine. Something I’ve never told anyone.
But I need to tell someone. Can you keep a secret?

Wow, wow, wow!!!!! I’m speechless. Where to begin. This was my first book by Georgina Cross and boy did it rock my world. I couldn’t put it down for the life on me. There were so many surprises. It felt like it was Christmas morning all over again. Don’t miss out on this one!!!!!
This book was about three best friends trying to figure out what happened to a woman who was a beloved figure in their community. She just upped and disappeared. It looked like there was a break in at her house along with a trail of blood. She must not have been loved by all. What possibly could this saint of a woman have done wrong? Was it her husband? Has he been hiding secrets? Or was she just plain tired of being a saint?
I want to start off by saying how much I loved this book. I loved the characters so very much. You had three women who were gossip queens trying to figure out what happened to a woman they knew. They were very nosey but each had a connection of their own to the missing woman. I loved finding out what those connections were. I especially loved Erica and her secrets and once you read this book you will find out why. On to the plot. If you read my blog then you all know how I love a good missing persons case. I always want it to be the husband but it usually doesn’t turn out that way. I’m totally laughing at what I wrote but hey it’s true, it’s always the ones closest to you. Now the ending. Boy did I love that ending. That had some shocking twists I didn’t see coming. It was like getting hit with a foul ball at a baseball game that you never saw coming. It took a really dark turn at the end, I loved it Georgina Cross.
Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I happened upon this book in my quest for something to read. What a clever book. Easy to read and in fact I read it in one day. Many twists and turns that kept me interested and a perfect yet surprising ending. A new author for my list. Well done.
