Forget the truth.
Remember the lies.
He wakes up on a deserted beach in Maryland with a gash on his head and wearing only swim trunks. He can’t remember who he is. Everything–his identity, his life, his loved ones–has been replaced by a dizzying fog of uncertainty. But returning to his Maine hometown in search of the truth uncovers more questions than answers.
Lily Reid thinks she knows her boyfriend, Jack. Until he goes missing one night, and her frantic search reveals that he’s been lying to her since they met, desperate to escape a dark past he’d purposely left behind.
Maya Scott has been trying to find her estranged stepbrother, Asher, since he disappeared without a trace. Having him back, missing memory and all, feels like a miracle. But with a mutual history full of devastating secrets, how far will Maya go to ensure she alone takes them to the grave?
Shared fates intertwine in a twisty, explosive novel of suspense, where unearthing the past might just mean being buried beneath it.
I had this one all figured out…….until……..
I really don’t know where to start because I don’t want to give, even one little thing, the possibility of a spoiler. So I apologize for being very vague.
Jack, Asher, Lily and Maya all have their secrets. Some bigger than others. Some deadlier than others.
This book hooked me right from the start. The writing was vivid and expressive whereas I felt I had been transported into the setting. The suspense exciting and at a perfect pace that any time I picked up the book, it propelled me right back into the story. Caveat: This book would have taken me less time to read because it was so good except for the dreaded adulting.
As I mentioned, I had it figured out, but that didn’t stop me from reading because there were still loose ends to tie up that I had to know how it ended.
The ending!!!! Mind blowing!!! The type of ending where you sit there and start picking your jaw off the floor!!!
Another author that just landed herself on my “authors to read” list.
Pick this book up NOW!!!
