I’ve finished another novel and wanted to share. I’ve read other things by this author before so I picked up this one. I thought I had it all figured out and that I knew who the murderer was because I could see that this person clearly had a motive. But I was thrown a curve ball and it ended up being someone else, which was weird ’cause I thought it couldn’t be that easy. Everything changes when you get to that final chapter at the end of the book, believe me.

On top of that, they also leave the book open for a sequel (if the author decides they want to do a sequel to this one) and I definitely wasn’t expecting this. All the other books I read from this author were pretty much one and done. Anyway, there are at least 2 directions, that I can think of, that the author can go with. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see what the author does, if they are going to do a sequel or not.

Synopsis: Karen and Tom Krupp are happy—they’ve got a lovely home in upstate New York, they’re practically newlyweds, and they have no kids to interrupt their comfortable life together. But one day, Tom returns home to find Karen has vanished—her car’s gone and it seems she left in a rush. She even left her purse—complete with phone and ID—behind.

There’s a knock on the door—the police are there to take Tom to the hospital where his wife has been admitted. She had a car accident, and lost control as she sped through the worst part of town.

The accident has left Karen with a concussion and a few scrapes. Still, she’s mostly okay—except that she can’t remember what she was doing or where she was when she crashed. The cops think her memory loss is highly convenient, and they suspect she was up to no good.

Karen returns home with Tom, determined to heal and move on with her life. Then she realizes something’s been moved. Something’s not quite right. Someone’s been in her house. And the police won’t stop asking questions.

Because in this house, everyone’s a stranger. Everyone has something they’d rather keep hidden. Something they might even kill to keep quiet.
