Description

They have the perfect marriage. Did one of them kill to get it?

Prep school sweethearts Ian and Andi Copeland are envied by everyone they know. They have successful businesses, a beautiful house in St. Louis, and their eldest daughter, Cassidy, is following in their footsteps by attending prestigious Glenlake Academy. Then, a submerged car is dredged from the bottom of a swimming hole near the campus. So are the remains of a former writer-in-residence who vanished 20 years ago - during Ian and Andi’s senior year.

When Cassidy’s journalism class begins investigating the death, Ian and Andi’s high school secrets rise to the surface. Each has a troubled link to the man whose arrival and sudden disappearance once set the school on edge. And each had a reason to want him gone. As Cassidy unwittingly edges closer to the truth, unspoken words, locked away for decades, will force Ian and Andi to question what they really know - about themselves, about the past, and about a marriage built on a murderous lie.

Unique And Excellent Book

This is a rather unique book that spans from Ian and Andi's time at Glenlake Academy to their daughter's graduation from the same boarding school. The characters are crafted with an amazing amount of depth as they go about their lives. We see that things are not always as they seem from the outsiders point of view. They may not be accurate for those living it either. The beginning was a little confusing until I took a few brief notes so I could understand who's who and how they were related to each other. Then I was so caught up in the story I didn't want to stop reading.

This is a complex story that allowed me to care about what was happening to the characters. I recommend this book to readers who like a well told story about family history and how children often possess the same characteristics as their parents. Are we hard wired to make the same mistakes that our parents made?

The narrators Christopher Lane, Lauren Ezzo and Emily Sutton-Smith were outstanding with the delivery of the story.

Loved it!

Great, interesting story and good characters! I was hooked within 5 minutes. Liked how the author moved back and forth in the past and current day.

Lackluster, Lazy Ending

The premise is the book seemed promising however after so much build up the story fell in on itself. There seemed to be so many anti climatic points that altogether this proved to be incredibly underwhelming. The first main character Andi was incredibly unlikable and second main character Ian was pitiful. I found him to be completely unbelievable as well. The ending was just that, the end. I actually looked at the timer to see how much longer was left because there were a few unresolved points in the story.
I would suggest this if it is FREE but I wouldn’t waste a credit on this book.

Thoroughly Enjoyable

I really loved this book. It was a bit confusing during the beginning, learning who was who and which decade we were in, but I just kept listening and I’m glad I did.

The characters were very interesting and the story had turns that I didn’t see coming. The story was relatable to any high schooler from the 90’s who may or may not be a parent today.

I enjoyed the actors that read this book and absolutely love when the voices switch from male to female characters. When your listening to an audiobook, that really helps with cementing what is going on.

Highly recommend this read for an interesting, romantic, mystery novel.

Started slow

When I was almost half way through this book, I almost put it down for good. My thoughts were that it lacked any action. I even thought the "romance" portions were rather lame at best. Since I'd paid for the book and audio, I thought I'd just keep going and if it didn't get brtter, I'd skip to the end and call it done.
It got better.
Although I do believe it meandered more than necessary. The mystery unfolded and the romances and relationships came to light, the good, the bad, the ugly and the tenderness.
All in all I enjoyed reading this book. The narration was excellent.

Excellent

Usually it isn’t hard to piece together “who done it” in books but this one left me in the dark until the very end. It was a great piece that kept me so hooked I finished the entire book in only two and a half days.

*Plus, as a St. Louis local who also spent time living in Bloomington, I got a kick out of the setting of the novel.
