I am a fan of Cheryl’s Sloane Monroe series so I was excited to read this new book. I was not disappointed.
The book begins 15 years in the past when Quinn and Evie first become friends. Fast forward to present times when Quinn is faced with dealing with the death of her dearest and closest friend. She makes a vow to find Evie’s killer… no matter what it takes.
The story follows Quinn as she returns home… she is faced with her fractured relationships with her sister, Astrid and with her old boyfriend, Bo, who is now a detective working on the case as well as dealing with Evie’s eccentric grandmother, Ruby. Twists and turns keep the reader guessing until the end when the truth is revealed.
I liked the book… it was well written and kept my interest. I like mysteries so I had my own ideas as to whom the murderer might be and I enjoyed following Quinn’s search for justice. It was a quick read.. and one you will want to keep reading just to see how it ends. The book ends in a rather open ended way so I was left to wonder if more books are planned for Quinn.
I would have given this story 5 Stars but for disappointing statements on mobile homes and completely avoidable child drowning.
"Adhere to your purpose and you will soon feel as well as you ever did. On the contrary, if you falter, and give up, you will lose the power of keeping any resolution, and will regret it all your life." -Abraham Lincoln
"She’d never cared much for trailers no matter how grand the illusion of a house-like façade. Mobile. Modular. Manufactured. A trailer was still a trailer. Prefabricated housing with a permanent chassis under its skirt. How anyone made a conscious choice to live in a manufactured dwelling, when they could save their pennies and spring for a house, eluded her. Squeeze two sides together and voila—the birth of a double-wide. Or piece together a third and make it a triple."
Insulting statement on mobile home ownership. Many people choose to buy land, place a mobile home on it and build a home around it. You do what you can with what you can afford.
Great description on relationships:
"Bo couldn’t tear his eyes from her, unable to shake the feeling he was with a completely different woman tonight. And then it hit him. Maybe the newness of the relationship, all those fluttering flips of the stomach like a car taking an abrupt dip in the road, were starting to wear off."
Quinn describes the death of her baby Isaiah and the incompetence of her in-laws. Why did the in-laws refuse to put a child-proof fence around the pool? No word on if the in-laws kept the pool available for swimming.
“It was an accident. He was staying the weekend at Marcus’s parents’ house. Playing in the backyard. He tripped, fell into the pool. No one was watching, and, when they finally noticed he was missing, it was too late. He drowned.”
I will re-read this story and always look forward to new works by this author.
