Not everything is as it seems in this book.
Bill Prices’s world has been turned upside down. His daughter, Summer and her best friend Haley have gone missing. Bill is still recovering from his wife’s death a year and a half earlier. He is called by police and learns that the girls have been found in a city park. His daughter is badly beaten but alive. Her friend Haley did not survive the attack.
Bill sits by his daughter and waits for answers. His daughter is not responsive except to say NO NO NO NO NO. His sister Paige comes to town to sit by his side and be a support as the the police (and Bill) try to find answers. Bill begins to learn more about his daughter Summer and some unsavory actions of her peers. As more information comes to light, a pressing question is asked…is the girl in the hospital bed really his daughter? If not, who is the girl in the hospital? Bill also learns that another girl who resembles Haley and Summer is missing. Are the missing girl cases related?
Secrets come out and the truth is revealed. I was not too shocked at one of the “reveals.” The pacing of the plot in this book was spot on -nothing felt rushed or hurried. I really enjoyed the mystery and as I mentioned there is more than one “reveal” in this book. Very nice touch as not everything is as it seems in this book. This book does not disappoint and keeps the action moving at a steady pace. This was my first David Bell book but it will not be my last. This book is a fast read perfect for summer.
I received an ARC of this book from Berkley Publishing Group and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
