Money, privilege, and a picture perfect life isn’t what it
Piper lost her daughter Dove in a tragic accident 15 years
ago. Now in the present she is still putting together the pieces of her life,
living on her family’s island. Attempts on her life send her looking for
answers, with the help of a forensic detective, Tucker, who helps her ask the
A family drama based thriller, filled with secrets, and
deadly ambitions. There was a lot going on and a lot to unpack as secrets are
revealed, and tensions are high. I liked how Tucker is a friend to Piper giving
her a safe space and person to bounce ideas off of, as well as a voice of faith
and reason. This was a difficult read for me, because I didn’t like Piper’s
family and how their dynamics play out throughout the course of the book.
I thought that Piper’s love for classic movies was a fun
addition, as she compares things to scenarios on film or quotes her favorite
movies. And I loved her passion for animals.
In the end, while this book had an engaging plot and a lot
of good things going for it, I personally found it to be unsatisfying, plus it
was hard to relate their lavish lifestyle. And by the time I had turned the
last page down I felt like I still had some questions. So in conclusion this
book just wasn’t a good fit for my tastes, I have read other books by this
author that I enjoyed, and I will definitely read others by her in the future,
but this one just wasn’t for me.
