They called themselves “the lucky ones.”
They were seven children either orphaned or abandoned by their parents and chosen by legendary philanthropist and brain surgeon Dr. Vincent Capello to live in The Dragon, his almost magical beach house on the Oregon Coast. Allison was the youngest of the lucky ones living an idyllic life with her newfound family…until the night she almost died, and was then whisked away from the house and her adopted family forever.
Now, thirteen years later, Allison receives a letter from Roland, Dr. Capello’s oldest son, warning her that their father is ill and in his final days. Allison determines she must go home again and confront the ghosts of her past. She's determined to find out what really happened that fateful night--was it an accident or, as she's always suspected, did one of her beloved family members try to kill her?
But digging into the past can reveal horrific truths, and when Allison pieces together the story of her life, she'll learns the terrible secret at the heart of the family she once loved but never really knew.
A vivid and suspenseful tale of family, grief, love—and the dark secrets that bind everything together—Tiffany Reisz’s latest is enthralling to the final page.

**** 4 Star Review ****
This is the first book of Tiffany Reisz's I have read, although I own a few of her past books. After reading this one, I will be picking up more without doubt.
This story pulled me in from the very start. Secrets. Lies. Betrayal. All in this book and delivered in the most perfect way.
I love when both the plot and characters grow from start to finish, leaving me left with a sense of fulfillment by the end. This book did just that. As the plot moved forward, I got pieces of each character, which wove with the changing and growing plot.
I can't say I didn't see all of the twists coming. I might have suspected a couple before they happened, but they still had an effect that was exactly how it should have been. Tiffany is definitely a great story teller.
Love. Loss. And healing. After all is said and done, I was happy to get an ending that suited each character in this book. If you are looking for your next read, you should definitely consider this one.
