The internationally bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish follows that success with an addictive novel filled with shocking twists about the aftermath of a brutal high-society murder.
Dr. Kate English has it all. Not only is she the heiress to a large fortune; she has a gorgeous husband and daughter, a high-flying career, and a beautiful home anyone would envy.
But all that changes the night Kate’s mother, Lily, is found dead, brutally murdered in her own home. Heartbroken and distraught, Kate reaches out to her estranged best friend, Blaire Barrington, who rushes to her side for the funeral, where the years of distance between them are forgotten in a moment.
That evening, Kate’s grief turns to horror when she receives an anonymous text: You think you’re sad now, just wait. By the time I’m finished with you, you’ll wish you had been buried today. More than ever, Kate needs her old friend’s help.
Once Blaire decides to take the investigation into her own hands, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems in Baltimore high society. As infidelity, lies, and betrayals come to light, and tensions rise to a boiling point, she begins to alienate Kate’s friends and relatives with her relentless, accusatory questions, as she tries to find Lily’s killer. The murderer could be anyone—friend, neighbor, loved one. But whoever it is, it’s clear that Kate is next on their list. . .

I just don't know where to go with this book. It definitely wasn't what I was hoping for or expecting. I don't really have a lot of words...
This book was good... slow, but good, for the first half. I wasn't sure exactly where it was going to take me. I didn't know who to trust. Who was sane. Who wasn't sane.
Then the second half of the book hits... I thought for sure things were going to really heat up... Unfortunately this is where the book took a dive for me. It lost me. It derailed. It completely spun out of control. I figured out pretty much everything really fast. And the twists were just so unbelievable and in left field, I felt highly disappointed.
I will be honest, I felt disconnected to these characters. I felt like I was in a fog, not quite able to see them in my head. They just didn't do a lot for me. Maybe that's because the book ended up so far out in left field that I just had a hard time digesting everything as a whole.
I won't let this deter me from reading future books from this author. I have loved her previous co-authored books. This book just wasn't it for me.
