From the USA TODAY bestselling author of Pretty Revenge, Emily Liebert comes the story of a journalist obsessed with finding a crime novelist who disappears after a deadly attack on her beloved daughter.

As a mother and a famous author, Ward DeFleur has it all. She lives in a beautiful estate in picture-perfect Connecticut, along with her teenage daughter, Stevie, where nothing can go wrong. Until, one night, when Stevie is brutally murdered and Ward’s entire world is shattered. Consumed by panic and grief, Ward vows never to put pen to paper again.

Enter Bree Bennett.

Bree is a recently-divorced, former-journalist-cum-housewife, desperate to fill her days with something other than Pilates classes and grocery shopping. So she decides to start writing for the town newspaper. What begins as Bree’s effort to tell Ward’s tragic narrative turns into a fixation with finding her favorite author. Unfortunately, Ward doesn’t want to be found. Even worse, Stevie’s killer is still on the loose.

I’ve read several of Emily’s novels and this is my favorite. I love the two strong woman protagonists. It’s interesting to note that even the second tier woman characters are well-developed and strong. It’s one of the few suspense novels I’ve read where I didn’t figure out the ending before the book finished. Perfect to drop into your beach bag and head out to the pool or shore.


USA Today bestselling author Emily Liebert was born and raised in New York City. She attended Horace Mann School and Smith College, where she graduated with a B.A. in English Language & Literature.

Emily is the author of five novels: YOU KNEW ME WHEN (2013), WHEN WE FALL (2014), THOSE SECRETS WE KEEP (2015), and SOME WOMEN (2016), all with Penguin Random House, and PRETTY REVENGE (2019) with Simon & Schuster.

In addition to writing novels, Emily pens a travel and books column in each issue of Westport Magazine, for which she’s the Books Correspondent. She also teaches Pure Barre classes and enjoys traveling and cooking. Emily lives with her husband, Lewis, and their two sons, Jax and Hugo, in Westport, CT. You can find her at

  6. This is a difficult question for me. I have so many authors that I love. I’m going to pick Joy Fielding. She is my favorite suspense/thriller author. She knows how to grab your attention and you simply can’t put the book down until you finish it.

  7. My absolute favorite author is Jodi Picoult. Every one of her books has made me think deeply about an issue in today’s society, and most of them have made me cry as well.
