My parents seem to be the perfect couple. But no one knows what I know…Everyone in the small Midwestern town of Henderson looks up to my perfect parents. With dependable jobs as a midwife and the town sheriff, they help this close-knit community feel safe. But the locals didn’t grow up in my parents’ house. They don’t know what I know. And they wouldn’t believe me if I told them…After my best friend vanished when we were just fifteen, I left town and never looked back. I couldn’t prove it, but I think my parents killed her.Now, years later, my little sister has vanished. I have no choice but to go home and play happy families again. Because I have to find out what my parents have done to her. I have to try to save her. But when bones are discovered on a local farm, and all the evidence leads back to our front door, I realize I was wrong about absolutely everything. And that coming back was the deadliest thing I could do…
Let’s be clear about one thing: this author writes amazing stories. I have been reading her books for a few years already and she never disappointed me. This is another great one.
What would do when your best friends from school vanishes and because there are no clues, there is not even a body, it’s very hard for the police to find the culprit. That’s is horrible of course, but what is even worse is that you think your parents have something to do with it. There is only one thing left for you to do. Leave town as soon as possible, because no way are going sticking around those people.
the only thing that is eating at you is not seeing your little sister anymore. When one day you get a call with the most devastating news, you just have to go back even though all the horror is coming back.
Is is a coincidence that as soon as you set foot in your hometown, some bones are being discovered or is there more, much more to it?
Maybe now it’s time to get to the bottom of it all. Soon you realise you are in danger, but who do you have to fear? Are you stepping into the lion’s den or is there someone else you should be afraid of more?
Coming home to a town where few people like to see you again, is very hard. It’s only natural you lean on them… Was this the right thing to do or should you have taken more care with whom to trust?
I loved this story. Of course my money was on the wrong horse again. 5 stars.
