Hello book friends,
Sorry for being MIA for a while, I’ve had a few things happening IRL, and in the middle of that I’ve also moved house, and been ill, so it’s been a stressful few weeks lol
Anyhoo, I thought I’d come back with a bang to give you my review of this fabulous read.
I was lucky enough to be invited to take part in the blog tour for this book, and as soon as I saw the author, I jumped at the chance to read it!
Prepare yourself for a roller coaster ride of a book, Mary Kubica has done it again!
Sadie and Will Foust and their kids have recently moved from the big bustling city of Chicago, to a sleepy coastal town in Maine, to a house that they have recently inherited.
To get to their new jobs, and also to the kids to school, they have to catch a ferry off of the island where they are living, they have also now have custody of Will’s Niece Imogen after his sister died unexpectedly, so there is plenty of stress around, and she is not the most welcoming person toward them all.
After only being there a few days, the family get a huge shock when one of their neighbours is murdered, and knowing that it must have happened in the night and that there isn’t a ferry off of the island until early in the morning, Sadie is aware that the murderer is/was still on the island, which triggers her anxiety.
Especially when it seems that the police seem to have the ridiculous notion that she had something to do with the murder, even though she’d never even met that neighbour, and that they are new to the town!
Sadie and the rest of the family were really hoping to have a fresh start, and thought that this would be it, they really needed it.
While we are watching the Faust family come apart thread by thread, we also get 2 other characters thrown in to the loop, Camille, Sadie’s former roommate and Mouse, a little girl who is being abused by her step mother.
How do they all fit together? And who the hell is the murderer?
Mary Kubica is the queen of twisty books, and this one was no different, it was creepy, very atmospheric, and I had no idea where it was going most of the time.
Grab this one as soon as you can and settle down for some serious page turning!
**Thank you to HQ Stories for my copy of this book**
