Book Review

(by- Linda )

A story packed with emotion, suspense and engaging characters. It is a psychological thriller, told from the perspective of four different women, with a smart, twisty plot and good pacing. I liked that the author mixed in some family drama throughout the book.

Glimpses into the lives of characters make them relatable. There was also a puzzle to solve; how will these women's lives cross paths? This question hovers in the back of your mind, and you never stop trying to piece it all together.

The premise of the book revolves around a tiny baby's skeleton found at a construction site. When an article about it catches the eye of Kate, a local journalist, she decides to pursue the story. As the plot unfolds, the layers build, and secrets refuse to remain secrets. Recommend.
