I'll Never Tell by Catherine McKenzie Review

This was my first read from the author and it definitely won't be my last! I absolutely loved it! From the very beginning, the reader is put in the middle of the MacAllister family as they try and piece together what happened to Amanda at their family's summer camp some twenty years ago. As the story progress, the reader realize that all the MacAllister's had something to hide the night of Amanda's death. Alternating between different POV's and timelines, the reader only gets little snippets of information that make you guess until the final twist. It was well-written and I loved how every character brings a different perspective as well as many secrets. 

I also loved how the author incorporated a chart with the location of all the characters during the night of the murder with missing spots. The reader is forced to try and fill in the blanks as the story goes on. Will you be able to put the missing pieces together and solve the mystery?

It was a true page turner! I will recommend for sure!

Thank you to Lake Union Publishing for my gifted copy in exchange for an honest review.

Here's a quick synopsis:
What happened to Amanda Holmes?

Twenty years ago, she washed up on shore in a rowboat with a gash to the head after an overnight at Camp Macaw. No one was ever charged with a crime.

Now, the MacAllister children are all grown up. After their parents die suddenly, they return to Camp to read the will and decide what to do with the prime real estate it's sitting on. Ryan, the oldest, wants to sell. Margo, the family's center, hasn't made up her mind. Mary has her own horse farm to run, and believes in leaving well-enough alone. Kate and Liddie—the twins—have opposing views. And Sean Booth, the family groundskeeper, just hopes he still has a home when all is said and done.

But then the will is read and they learn that it's much more complicated than a simple vote. Until they unravel the mystery of what happened to Amanda, they can't move forward. Any one of them could have done it, and all of them are hiding key pieces of the puzzle. Will they work together to solve the mystery, or will their suspicions and secrets finally tear the family apart? (Reference : Goodreads)

Happy reading,
