Summary

Everyone has secrets.

YouTube baking sensation April Masterson knows the secret to the perfect gooey brownies. Or how to make key lime squares that will melt in your mouth. But if you keep watching her offline, you may find out some other secrets about April; secrets she’d rather you didn’t know - like where did her son go when he snuck out of the house? What was she doing with the local soccer coach behind fogged windows? And what’s buried in her backyard?

Everyone has secrets. Some are worse than others. April’s secrets are enough to destroy her. I’ll make sure of that.

Great narration

I liked this book, especially the narration. The story was easy to follow with a few twists.

Slow start but plenty of reveals and twists

I had the audiobook version narrated by Alyson Krawchuk who does a good job with distinct voices for each of the main characters.

April Masterton is a you tube baking sensation. While recording for her baking chanel she left her 7yr old son Bobby playing in the yard, she only goes to look for him when she gets a text to say your son isn’t where you think he is. The texts keep coming which divulge secrets April doesn’t want revealing.

The first half is from April’s POV. Then the POV and perspective changes. It starts slowly, and feels like a character study then things step up a gear. The second half is eye opening.

April really isn’t a likeable character, but then non of them are. They come across as self serving rich suburban mothers, but they are very focused on what they want.

The foundation laying of this one was a little bit drawn out for me, which has affected my rating. I’m not sure how I feel about the ending.
It has plenty of revelations twists and turns and is an easy enjoyable listen.

Love the twists and changed of pov.

I love this author and find her quite adroit in building up suspense involving everyone on the street.

i would recommend anyone to read it while doing chores or going for a nice walk.

Definitely worth a credit. My fave is still a couple of her other ones.

You're on for some twists and turnes that takes a while and could have been written in a more clearifying way-just my personal opinion.

Please come with suggestions for books like these ones!

A good page Turner

Loved the story, I particularly liked the way the story suddenly changed from one person's perspective to the other. A nice easy listen

Don’t bother

Promising start and then a ridiculous plot. Complete waste of a credit.
If you read Housemaid series, you’ll be disappointed with this.

Bit slow compared to freidas other books

This wasn’t my favourite of her books! I have real/listened to a few and have been gripped - this one was harder to enjoy
