I’m so sad to tell you this was my worst Shari Lapena book.

Don’t get me wrong, Shari Lapena is my absolutely favorite author and I read and will continue to read all of her books, but this just wasn’t for me.

My main problem was all the characters were just so unlovable, and despicable. I just couldn’t find sympathy or care for the story. What saved this a bit for me was that this was a pretty quick read with different POVs so it did manage to keep my attention, but I just couldn’t get passed hating all the characters and not caring what happened to them. Hopefully, her next one is much better, as she usually is the queen of domestic suspense.

Thank you to Penguin Random House Canada, Doubleday Canada for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


Welcome to Stanhope! A safe neighborhood. A place for families.

William Wooler is a family man, on the surface. But he's been having an affair, an affair that ended horribly this afternoon at a motel up the road. So when he returns to his house, devastated and angry, to find his difficult nine-year-old daughter, Avery, unexpectedly home from school, William loses his temper.

Hours later, Avery's family declares her missing.

Suddenly Stanhope doesn't feel so safe. And William isn't the only one on his street who's hiding a lie. As witnesses come forward with information that may or may not be true, Avery's neighbors become increasingly unhinged.

Who took Avery Wooler?

Nothing will prepare you for the truth.
