Summary from Goodreads:

Emma hasn't told her husband much about her past. He knows her parents are dead and she hasn't spoken to her sisters in years. Then they lose their apartment, her husband gets laid off, and Emma discovers she's pregnant―right as the bank account slips into the red.

That's when Emma confesses that she has one more asset: her parents' house, which she owns jointly with her estranged sisters. They can't sell it, but they can live in it. But returning home means that Emma is forced to reveal her secrets to her husband: that the house is not a run-down farmhouse but a stately mansion, and that her parents died there.

Were murdered.

And that some people say Emma did it.

Emma and her sisters have never spoken about what really happened that night. Now, her return to the house may lure her sisters back, but it will also crack open family and small-town secrets lots of people don’t want revealed. As Emma struggles to reconnect with her old family and hold together her new one, she begins to realize that the things they have left unspoken all these years have put them in danger again.


Add on Goodreads



Oh my goodness, I was so deeply wrapped up in this book I couldn't put it down. By the end I felt so thoroughly manipulated and dirty.

This multiple point of view story is a slow burn at first, but once the story is in full swing, there is no stopping it. These pages lure you into the messed up lives of three sisters who's lives changed after their parents were murdered when they were children.

Throughout the whole book, the author hints on who might have done it as fingers are pointed at one sister and then the next, only to land on Emma. Everyone thinks she brutally killed her parents, but she doesn't even know what happened that night. Or does she? As the truth unfolds, your mind will be twisted. Didn't even see that one coming.

You are going to love this thrilling ride. Just read it. I dare you.
