Okay, I could say a whole heck of a lot in praise of this book, but I don’t want to give anything away from your experience of it, should you choose to read it. (And you should!) So, I’m keeping this brief.
She tried to run, but she can’t escape the other Mrs.
Sadie and Will Foust have only just moved their family from bustling Chicago to small-town Maine when their neighbor Morgan Baines is found dead in her home. The murder rocks their tiny coastal island, but no one is more shaken than Sadie.
But it’s not just Morgan’s death that has Sadie on edge. And as the eyes of suspicion turn toward the new family in town, Sadie is drawn deeper into the mystery of what really happened that dark and deadly night. But Sadie must be careful, for the more she discovers about Mrs. Baines, the more she begins to realize just how much she has to lose if the truth ever comes to light.
One of Mary Kubica’s greatest strengths is character creation and development. The characters in this are boldly drawn and very passionate, yet totally believable. Every moment feels high stakes and important for them. Kubica allows us to get into their hearts and heads, with an unflinching look at the truth of human nature and needs.
Also, I think the pacing and plotting of this thriller is exceptional. And just about every character in this story seems dangerous and untrustworthy, which is always fun!
This was my first read by Mary Kubica, and I definitely want to go back and read others, especially The Good Girl!
A huge thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin for the ARC!
This gem of a thriller hits the shelves on February 18. Don’t miss it!
