Okay, let’s talk about this one!

I listened to the audio version of this book, and I admit that I usually tend to drift away, miss key moments and characters, which makes me disinterested in the book versus reading the physical copy where I pay 100% attention. However, this one took me by surprise!

I was at the edge of my seat the entire time! Talk about a nail-biting, heart-pumping, edge-of-your-seat unputdownable book.

The story is about a dysfunctional family, and you can expect an action-packed story full of questions, crazy twists and surprises!

Thank you to Dreamscape Medio for providing me with an audio version of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


A murderer, a victim, and a witness... but no one in this house is innocent

Twenty years ago an unspeakable tragedy rocked Rose Yates's small, affluent hometown... and only Rose and her family know the truth about what happened.

Haunted by guilt, Rose escaped into a new life. Now she seems to have it all: a marriage, a son, a career. And then her husband is found dead.

As far as Detective Colin Pearson is concerned, Rose is guilty. Her marriage wasn't as happy as she'd led everyone to believe, and worse, she's connected to a twenty-year-old cold case. She can play the part of the victim, but he won't let her or her family escape justice this time around.

Grieving her husband and struggling to make ends meet, Rose returns home, hoping to finally confront her domineering father and unstable sister. But memories of a horrific crime echo through the house, and Rose soon learns that she can't trust anyone, especially not the people closest to her.
