Littleport, Maine is like two separate towns: a vacation paradise for wealthy holidaymakers and a simple harbour community for the residents who serve them. Friendships between locals and visitors are unheard of - but that's just what happened with Avery Greer and Sadie Loman.
Each summer for a decade the girls are inseparable - until Sadie is found dead. When the police rule the death a suicide, Avery can't help but feel there are those in the community, including a local detective and Sadie's brother Parker, who blame her. Someone known more than they're saying, and Avery is intent on clearing her name before the facts get twisted against her.
rating : 5
Would I recommend this book : yes
Will I read any thing else by this author: yes
In fact I have read both of her books All The Missing Girls & The Perfect Stranger and loved them , so as soon as I saw she had this one coming out I had to request it. All of her stories take place in a small town where it seems everybody knows everybody's business ,but can still keep secrets no matter how dark they are. As your reading the story your finding out what happened and why , it keeps you guessing and asking questions like was Sadie's death a suicide ,or murder and if it was suicide why did she do , or who killed her and why, or did Avery have something to do with or does she know more then she's telling people . It also keeps you guessing on who can she truest and can she clear her name . Just like All The Missing Girls and The Perfect Stranger the story is interesting and well writing , and slow burning which is good because it keeps you pulled in to the story to the ever last page , So to find out more you have to read the book . With that said I want to thank Netgalley and Simon & Schuster for letting me read and review it exchange for my honest opinion.
