Read via Kindle Unlimited


Bad things don’t happen in Cason Glen. 
The locals make sure of it.

So, when the residents of the town’s most exclusive subdivision discover one of their own is missing, it sends a wave of panic and discord throughout the neighborhood.
They are supposed to be safe.
But they quickly realize not everything is as it once seemed in their idyllic world.
Slowly, the cracks have begun to show, revealing the dark and devious truth behind their home, their neighbors, and the lengths some people will go to protect their secrets. 

Someone’s missing.
Someone’s dead.
Everyone’s lying. 

In a town full of masterfully woven webs, these six friends are about to watch their world unravel. And, if they’re not careful, one of them might be the next to disappear…  

When everyone you know is a liar, how do you decide whom to trust?

My Review

Another brilliant book by Kiersten and another fun buddy read with Amanda. This time it’s all set around a lake with friends and neighbours that are all keeping secrets from each other. A missing teacher, a mayor, a sheriff, their respective wives and children and they all think they are doing the right thing by covering up what they think they know.

As with all of this author’s books though nothing is quite as it seems and it’s not just secrets that are buried in the lake. As the secrets start to surface along with a body or two you start to distrust everyone. Is a mother lying to protect her twin boys? What is the secret that the sheriff and his wife know and have kept for years? Is Stephanie making up seeing the car go in the lake and if she is then why? And why does she then retract her story?

And where is Cason Glen’s golden boy? A well liked teacher both by staff and pupils can’t just disappear without a trace.

“In a town this small, it was almost impossible not to know your neighbours exceptionally well” but how well do they really know each other?

Narrated from multiple points of view, we get to know the friends/neighbours and some are more likeable than others. But it’s true what they say it’s always the quiet ones you have to look out for!
