A beautifully told story packed with secrets, grief, and guilt!
Megan Collins has crafted an entertaining tale with an effortless flow. Another exquisite debut, this year seems to be oozing with amazing debuts!
Sylvie has come back home after being gone for many years to take care of her estranged mother who is suffering from cancer. Over a decade ago Sylvie’s older sister Persephone went missing only to be found a few days later dead in a pile of snow. The killer is never found, Sylvie is buried in grief, and her mother Annie retreats into a world of darkness. Now Sylvie is back home forced to face her past, her guilt, her secrets, and the man she is convinced killed her sister. What happened all those years ago? Will the truth set Sylvie free? Will it bring her mother out of the darkness? So many secrets so long buried what will happen when they all come to light? Well you will need to read this book to find all this out!
You may have read this trope before, however I thought it was extremely well executed in this story. Sylvie is an incredibly likable and engaging character someone you could see yourself as friends with. The twists and reveals were cleverly done with the perfect amount of clues sprinkled throughout the story. The ending was unquestionably fraught with tension. I was absolutely glued to those pages, needing to know what the story behind everything was, and I truly was almost more interested in Sylvie’ss mom’s backstory then the murder. There was also a nice dose of romance in this book a little unexpected and a little unsettling. Cannot wait to see what Megan Collins has in store for us next, absolutely recommend!
🎧🎧🎧 Rebecca Ross narrates this book bringing the perfect voice to Sylvie. Rebecca Ross is such an amazing narrator she really breathes life into the books she narrates. If you have not listen to a book narrated by her this is a good place to start! Just saying!
🎵🎵🎵Song Running Through My Head
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home?
Come on, now
I hear you’re feeling down
Well I can ease your pain
Get you on your feet again
I’ll need some information first
Just the basic facts
Can you show me where it hurts?
There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship’s smoke on the horizon
You are the only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I’ve got that feeling once again
I can’t explain you would not understand
This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb
I have become comfortably numb
Just a little pinprick
There’ll be no more
But you may feel a little sick
Can you stand up?
