Littleport, Maine is like two separate towns: a vacation paradise for wealthy holidaymakers and a simple harbour community for the residents who serve them. Friendships between locals and visitors are unheard of- but that’s just what happened with Avery Greer and Sadie Loman. Each summer for a decade the girls are inseparable- until Sadie is found dead. When the police rule the death a suicide, Avery can’t help but feel there are those in the community, including a local detective and Parker, Sadie’s brother, who blames her. Someone knows more than they’re saying, and Avery is intent on clearing her name before the facts get twisted against her.
I really enjoyed this one! I’ve been on a bad run with books lately, haven’t really enjoyed the last 3 I’ve read that much. I thought I’d never get out of the “reading slump” but this book was just what I needed. It has a good mystery, and I liked the alternating times which allowed us to build up an idea of what happened the night Sadie died. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was simply because I feel a book has to be outstanding to get 5 stars, and while this book was excellent it just didn’t hit that bar for me. I liked the fact we were introduced to a few dodgy characters which meant there was a number of people who it could have been. The ending was good, I thought the build up was good and they left subtle clues throughout the book which pointed to the ending, but didn’t make it obvious which I enjoyed. I also felt a connection to the characters which always makes the book easier to read. The setting of a small town is something which I also really like in a book because the characters all have a connection which makes things interesting. Overall, I would definitely recommend that you read this book!

  1. Great review @blonde_book_nerd I also enjoyed this book and am currently reading another by this same author which is keeping me guessing. Would be interested in your views on that one if you get chance to read it!
