Publisher's Summary

Big Little Lies meets The Party. Kylie Kaden is the freshest new voice in domestic noir.

'It seemed simple at first - folding one lie over the next. She had become expert at feathering over the cracks to ensure her life appeared the same. But inside, it didn't feel fixed.' 

It happened the day of the Moon Festival. It could have been left behind, they all could have moved on with their lives. But secrets have a habit of rising to the surface, especially in small towns. 

Two couples, four ironclad friendships, the perfect coastal holiday town. With salt-stung houses perched like lifeguards overlooking the shore, Lago Point is the scene of postcards, not crime scenes. Wife and mother Abbi, town cop Blake, schoolteacher Hannah and local doctor Will are caught in their own tangled webs of deceit.

When the truth washes in to their beachside community, so do the judgments: victim or vigilante, who will forgive, who will betray? Not all relationships survive. Nor do all residents.

Fantabulous

This was a great story - was not sure what to expect- but it was a wonderful written book- great plot. Congratulations Kylie - can’t wait for your next book.
Secrets and the complexities of life and the lies we live with and hide.
Great narration - and recording which is so important to me - I love Casey Withoos narration but one of her books I could not continue to listen because of the recording- hearing her inhalation .

good but mixed feelings

The story was well thought out, the characters deeply developed, I feel like I have known them forever.
mixed feelings, YOU have to pay attention very closely at the start. I actually was going to return this book because I just couldn't figure out what was going on several chapters in. Instead I decided to restart the whole book and paid careful attention when listening to it. After the beginning it's much easier to follow and flows pretty good. It is actually a great book and after the confusing beginning I am glad I stuck with it because I enjoyed it very much!
