Publisher's Summary

A missing young woman, ten years gone. A town still held in the grip of an unsolved mystery. A breathtaking novel of psychological suspense by the bestselling author of We Were Mothers.

A decade ago in upstate New York, art student Emma McCullough walked into the woods and was never seen again. It’s a mystery that still haunts her bucolic university town and her broken family, especially her sister Haley, whose need for closure has become an obsession. But now, finally, the first piece of evidence in the vanishing has been found: Emma’s bracelet, lodged in a frozen piece of earth at the bottom of a gorge. For Emma’s three best college friends, for a beloved former teacher, and for Haley, the chilling trinket is more than a clue in a resurrected cold case. It’s a trigger. 

Then a woman is attacked during an open house, and the connections between the two crimes, ten winters apart, begin to surface. So do the secrets that run as deep and dark as the currents in this quiet river town.

Soap Opera Junk

Everybody is sleeping with everybody. Sounds great wish I was there. The entanglements were confusing. The plot was okay but the story dragged. Save your credit.

I actually enjoyed it

Sure, it's not the most intellectual or sophisticated read, but I've read much, much worse thrillers than this one. The narration was great, the plot was very solid and believable, characters are relatable and well developed. I finished the book in two days and didn't want to put it down. A credit well spent.

All the feels!!!

This book gutted me! Lies, omissions, cover-ups...a young female college student disappeared from a party in the woods 10yrs ago. Everyone thought that she had run away, until her bracelet was discovered. Now, as the lies unravel, those who were supposed to be Emma’s friends are all hiding the truth. But Emma’s sister, Haley, has no intention of letting the truth remain buried. Wonderful performance bu the narrators that brought this story alive.

But wait.... there more!

How does one even know who to trust? This book was filled with twist, after twist, after twist. Just when you think you know who it was, more is revealed. Seriously, don't even try to guess, just read and enjoy!

Pretty Good Listen ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Let’s start here, and end on a high note: Not bad, but with this many characters speaking in first person, it needed one more narrator, or more diversity between the 2. Honestly, it all sounded like the same person, using a different accent at times. Also, PLEASE, quit making my ears bleed...to all authors considering an audio version of your next best seller, please skip the sound effects, repetitive noises, etc. I’ve yet to hear a narrator do it well.., it’s next impossible. I did find some positive qualities in these narrators; they didn’t murder the book. However, I did feel slight contempt for the male and teenage voices... too dramatic & too much pitch. While certain elements of the plot were pretty out there, the ending was a nice unexpected twist and came together somewhat smoothly. I’m also pleasantly surprised to purchase a new release that doesn’t feel like political drama was clumsily dropped in after the fact... thank you for skipping it! I’m beginning to think incentives such as free advertising are being offered up to those with a political hot topic included.

Slow but enjoyable

The plot starts off slow and can be confusing. It took a few chapters before I was hooked and had to know how it ended. The plot did jump around which in-turned caused the confusion. Once I understood the plot and why it was jumping so often, I started to enjoy the story. Betrayal, jealousy, murder, attempted murder, family secrets, love and love lost, then justice sums up the plot and craziness going on in this story. Narration was great, I liked the voices of Rebecca and Lori.

Mediocre experience.

A reasonably good story diminished by the choice of a whiney "Valley Girl" voice for the victim. I could not care for the victim in this story because of the whiney accent that I associate with inconsequential women. The victim had no value so the story had no value for me.

good story

glad there were 2 narrators. I had to allow the speed down as the one narrator spoke very fast. I listen to it at bedtime and can't go to sleep if it's too fast
