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.
