Received from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Arden Arrowood inherits her family home and returns to where she was initially raised. Once there she is haunted by the past. Her four year old twin sisters went missing believed to have been abducted by a local man. She is haunted by their disappearance and is interested when approached by a man who likes to investigate cold cases. He is haunted by his own brother’s disappearance and approaches her to help shed some light on what happened to her sisters.

While at her family home she re-connects with her childhood friends and their Mother. She is haunted by her memory, time, and the need to know what happened the day her sister went missing. She hopes to find some closure.

The premise of this book is very intriguing. But I did not feel connected to it at all. I did not find Arden, or any other character likable enough to really care. I kept reading to see what happened. Dammit I need some closure but it was more of a fizzle than a loud boom or aha moment at the end. I did not find this to be a “on the edge of your seat book” or a “page turner”. I found I just didn’t feel connected at all but still wanted to see “whodunit”
