Publisher Description

A New York Times and USA Today bestseller

From New York Times bestselling author of The Perfect Marriage and You Shouldn’t Have Come Here comes a chilling family thriller about the (sometimes literal) skeletons in the closet.

After their mother passes, three estranged siblings reunite to sort out her estate. Beth, the oldest, never left home. She stayed with her mom, caring for her until the very end. Nicole, the middle child, has been kept at arm’s length due to her ongoing battle with a serious drug addiction. Michael, the youngest, lives out of state and hasn’t been back to their small Wisconsin town since their father ran out on them seven years before.

While going through their parents’ belongings, the siblings stumble upon a collection of home videos and decide to revisit those happier memories. However, the nostalgia is cut short when one of the VHS tapes reveals a night back in 1999 that none of them have any recollection of. On screen, their father appears covered in blood. What follows is a dead body and a pact between their parents to get rid of it, before the video abruptly ends.

Beth, Nicole, and Michael must now decide whether to leave the past in the past or uncover the dark secret their mother took to her grave.

“For the most part I enjoyed this book. The first 30% is extremely boring but after that it gets better. I did get annoyed by the constant fighting amongst the siblings and honestly I really didn’t like any of the characters. But the plot was good and it was well written so overall, i recommend it.”
“i didn’t know if i was going to like this book, in the beginning there was a little bit of a disconnect for me with the characters and just the way the book started but o m g. once you hit that first twist it changes everything, i felt connected and fully immersed. i actually really enjoyed the multi pov and the time jumping. def recommend!!! so far my fav jeneva rose book!!”

Expressionless Face“I felt like this book shouted from the rooftops who the killer was. The comments became more and more obvious and made it hard to get through when I knew the “reveal” would fall flat for me. I’m giving it a two star though because I felt like the grief & angst in the story was very raw and real.”
