Summary

An unthinkable tragedy forever changes a group of teens and turns family against family in this edge-of-your-seat thriller that begs to be heard in one sitting.

Best friends Lindsey, Kendra, and Dani endure every parent’s nightmare when a tragic accident befalls their teenage boys, leaving one dead, another in a coma, and a third too traumatized to speak.

Reeling from the worst night of their lives, the three mothers plunge into a desperate investigation of the bizarre incident. How could something so horrible happen in their wealthy Southern California suburb?

They soon discover that the accident was just the beginning, and troubling discoveries lead to chilling questions: Do they really know their children? Do they even know each other? As more secrets surface, a fog of doubt and suspicion threatens to poison their families, their friendships, and the whole community.

With the illusion of happiness and safety long gone, these women must now confront the hazards of heartbreak, the consequences of jealousy, and the dangers of living double lives.

Boring story

Just about managed to finish it all the while hoping for a good twist that never came.

Nothing to write home about

There was nothing particularly gripping about this book. The plot twist could be see a mile away. It was alright to listen to while I was working but I wouldn’t recommend it.

Less dark and more domestic than some of her other books

-4.5⭐️

Available on KU and listen

I’m a fan of this authors work, finding her very consistent. This is a more of a domestic story.
I had the audiobook read by Amy Rubinate, Tara Sands and Coleen Marlo the narrators performances are good, making the mothers emotions very real.

Best friends Lindsey, Kendra and Dani endure every patients nightmare when there’s an incident involving their sons leaving one dead, another in a coma and the third too traumatised to speak.

I love how the author keeps coming up with new themes for her books.
The pace of this one is much slower than her better known thrillers. It’s very character and emotion driven.
It portrays the families devastation well, how they fall apart in different way’s, there are many secrets revealed. It makes the adult friends re-examine their childhood friendships while they are viewing their children following a similar pattern.

It’s quite an emotional read, and may have triggers for some.

I would give the book 4.25⭐️, the performance and emotional connection from the narrators 4.5⭐️

disappointing listen

I love all of Berry's books and Inwas very excited when this pre-order landed in my library. however, I found this very pedestrian and boring. Very dissapointed and annoyed that I've wasted a credit on it.
