A seriously messed up family. An unreliable narrator. A story that just makes you question everything. I love books like this. I really liked the way the story unraveled the mother and we got to see just exactly what a narcissistic personality is like from beginning to end. I didn’t know what the ending had in store, but I knew it was going to be something turned on it’s head. Fun journey- I recommend!
The way this ultimately weaved together was fascinating, but ultimately not something I was super excited about.
Because the way this book was told was all gearing up for the ending, for the "plot twist," but it didn't really make the rest of the book that interesting to read. I was intrigued, yes, but I picked up a couple of other books while reading this and probably would have forgotten it had I not been reading to review.
This was another book were the details were quite clever and the way that they were strung together to create a picture was done well. I think perhaps I'm over having something at the end be a big reveal and then having all those details explained. I didn't feel like Walker had much respect for the reader in thinking that they could put pieces together.
Walker has strong concepts and I'll look out for her next book, but this one didn't quite do it for me.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
3.5 rounded up to 4
It held my interest but it was such a convoluted story that I found the ending a little hard to believe.

One night three years ago, the Tanner sisters disappeared: fifteen-year-old Cass and seventeen-year-old Emma. Three years later, Cass returns, without her sister Emma. Her story is one of kidnapping and betrayal, of a mysterious island where the two were held. But to forensic psychiatrist Dr. Abby Winter, something doesn't add up. Looking deep within this dysfunctional family Dr. Winter uncovers a life where boundaries were violated and a narcissistic parent held sway. And where one sister's return might just be the beginning of the crime.
