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—every new conflict puts us further on edge, especially since almost no one in the Fousts’ new hometown is what they first appear to be. Her white-knuckle thriller kept us off-balance until the final twist, a shocking reveal that made us want to read the whole thing all over again.

Twisty & suspenseful
Twisty & suspenseful enough to keep my interest up. I had quite a bit of the plot figured out, but there were enough surprises to keep me intrigued & guessing until the very end. Narrator did a good job with the numerous voices in the audiobook.
Not What I Expected
The plot twist is great, getting to it is not. Very long and too detailed descriptions leave little to the imagination and makes you feel like it’s long and drawn out. When you finally get to the good stuff it rides with such exhilaration and then peters out to this lame ending where you think that’s it? That’s how she addresses mental illness? Maybe the Netflix show will be better written and hit harder on the mental illness issues. Great concept just not executed well.
Rambles along with a stupid but predictable ending.
