We rated this book:


Esme Foster had left the small town of Graybridge, Massachusetts to fulfill her dream of being a professional ballerina. After a career-ending injury and a long-term break-up she returned home, the same day one of her childhood friends is found murdered in the woods behind her house. She wonders if this is related to her mother’s death, or the drowning of a friend when she was a child. To Detective Rita Meyers, everyone is a suspect. She wades through the small town secrets and the plethora of suspects to try and find the truth.

This suspenseful mystery was full of twists and turns. The author masterfully doles out the perfect amount of information to keep you guessing until the end. The characters were authentic and well rounded. Usually I don’t like stories that switch between character perspectives because many times it feels too choppy and hard to follow, this is not the case with this book the author does a brilliant job and I found it easy to follow and riveting. I loved this book and would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys mystery thrillers.
