From a phenomenal new voice in suspense fiction comes a book that will forever change the way you look at the people closest to you…
Shadow Cove, Washington, is the kind of town everyone dreams about—quaint streets, lush forests, good neighbors. That’s what Sarah thinks as she settles into life with her new husband, Dr. Johnny McDonald. But all too soon she discovers an undercurrent of deception. And one October evening when Johnny is away, sudden tragedy destroys Sarah’s happiness.
Dazed and stricken with grief, she and Johnny begin to rebuild their shattered lives. As she picks up the pieces of her broken home, Sarah discovers a shocking secret that forces her to doubt everything she thought was true—about her neighbors, her friends, and even her marriage. With each stunning revelation, Sarah must ask herself, Can we ever really know the ones we love?

Hey! Here's my review.
This is a good debut novel that kept me interested in the story and trying to differentiate the clues from the red herrings. I didn't figure out who was responsible before it was revealed, though with the 20:20 vision of hindsight, I could see the clues were all there. I liked the characters, but didn't feel particularly attached to any of them. 

I listened to the audiobook edition, which I received free in exchange for an honest review. The narrator spoke clearly and at a good pace, giving each of the characters a unique voice
