Description

I moved closer to the little girl, afraid that our voices would be caught by the monitor. "What happened to you, Lucy? Can you tell me?"

When Sophie’s life falls apart, she accepts an invitation from a childhood friend, Caroline, to visit her family’s beautiful beach house, situated at the mouth of an isolated cove, miles from the nearest town. The silence is broken only by the rhythmic crash of the waves against the jagged black rocks below. 

But when Sophie arrives, she finds her friend much changed. Caroline - who used to be so warm and confident - is secretive and on-edge, spending long, unexplained hours away from her family. And then there’s Caroline’s little daughter Lucy - who stopped speaking soon after they moved in. Caroline assures Sophie that it’s only a phase, but Sophie thinks Lucy looks a little uncared for, a little afraid....

Then one night Sophie is woken by a scream and runs to find Lucy, out of bed and at the attic window, staring in terror at the view below. When Sophie goes to look, her blood runs cold....

What secrets hide behind closed doors in this isolated house by the sea? A compelling domestic drama from the USA Today best-selling author of Gracie’s Secret. Perfect for fans of Big Little Lies and The Couple Next Door.

Predictable, but good.

Entertaining. When a friend goes to visit an old friend after many years apart, she notices things aren't quite right.
Yes, if you love psych thriller you've read it variations of the theme before but I'm not going to take away from my rating just because I'm a jaded reader. It was well written and plenty entertaining. I enjoyed the excellent narration too.

Sooooo Much Description

80% descriptions 20% story. This whole book was about descriptions of every single thing. A very small part of the book was actually a story. Very easy to figure it out. I would not recommend this book.

An excellent plot. Character personalities and motives are clear. If you enjoy domestic noir you will enjoy it!
