Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"When Hannah packs up her past and moves to the cottage next-door to her sister, she hopes the luxe neighborhood and close family ties will be the perfect escape for her son and the shadows that trail them. But when a young girl goes missing days after they unload their final boxes and her son is quickly thrown under suspicion, Hannah must do whatever it takes to protect her child. Even if that means pointing the blame her sister's way instead. With investigators swarming and neighborhood scrutiny closing in, the divide between two sisters grows. As one fiercely defends her husband, the other shields her boy from the crime, keeping quiet the secrets that might unravel it all. And all the while, one young girl has vanished, and someone is to blame"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* What is supposed to be a new beginning for the newly divorced, hardworking Hannah and her 11-year-old son, Miles, turns out to be anything but in the latest from Simmons (The Fifth of July, 2017). In order to build stability for her highly sensitive, animal-obsessed son, Hannah surrounds him with family: she purchases a small house next door to her sister Hillary, and her mother lives one town over. What she didn't expect was a 6-year-old girl to go missing, and for the entire neighborhood to suspect Miles of foul play. While trying to protect her son, Hannah begins her own investigation, which leads her to discover a secret about her sister's husband, Ben, that rips Hillary's family apart, and soon Ben is suspect number one. The sisters, who were once so close they were thought of as one person, become enemies as they each defend their respective families until their mother intervenes. Told from alternating perspectives, Simmons throws readers right into the middle of the mystery and keeps them guessing the whole way through. Readers who enjoy the suspenseful reads of Liane Moriarty won't be able to put down this novel. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
