Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "The glass beach house was supposed to be the getaway that Susan needed. Eager to help her transplanted family set down roots in their new town - and desperate for some kid-free conversation - she invites her new neighbors to join in on a week-long sublet with her and her workaholic husband. Over the course of the first evening, liquor loosens inhibitions and lips. The three couples begin picking up on the others' marital tensions and work frustrations, as well as revealing their own. But someone says too much. And the next morning one of the women is discovered dead on the private beach. Town detective Gabby Watkins must figure out who permanently silenced the deceased. As she investigates, she learns that everyone in the glass house was hiding something that could tie them to the murder, and that the biggest secrets of all are often in plain sight for anyone willing to look."--Publisher description.

    Three couples, neighbors in Westchester, New York, travel to the Hamptons to vacation, where they will share a rental home while their children attend camp. The six include sportscaster Jenny, her doctor husband Louis, stay-at-home dad Ben and his lawyer wife Rachel, and homeschooling mom Susan and her entrepreneur husband Nadal. Arguments erupt and dark secrets emerge among these entwined couples, ending in the murder of one of the women. Newly promoted Detective Sergeant Gabby Watkins is tasked with uncovering the murderer as well as the person who drugged and raped a teenager at a party. Multiple plot twists keep the pages turning as Gabby investigates, slowly unraveling the many relationships among the six as things in the house go from bad to worse, and marriages begin to crumble. Gabby is a conscientious detective who must deal with jealous colleagues and her anger as her family becomes part of her investigation. With well-drawn characters, this absorbing page-turner, told from multiple points of view, alternates effectively between recent past and present. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
