It has been ten years since Hannah Roscoe has seen her older sister, Nina. Then one evening she receives a phone call from the police informing her that her sister is dead, and that Hannah must take in her nephew, Abe as she is next of kin. Abe is withdrawn and moody and not too happy to be moving to his Aunt’s home and starting a new school.

Initially, the police believe that Nina died from an accidental fall, but later determine that foul play was involved, and her death becomes a murder investigation. Caring for Abe and dealing with the police, adds to Hannah’s stress level. Her boyfriend recently broke off their relationship and now it appears that someone is messing with Hannah. Things are being moved in her home, she hears tapping on her window and strangers in town, seem to know her.

This book began slowly for me and pretty much maintained this pace until the final chapters of the book. The Author gives us glimpses into Hannah and Nina’s past but not enough so that the reader knows why the two sisters have not spoken in ten years until the end of the book. Hannah has enough mysterious things happening in her life that kept the book just interesting enough for me to keep reading. The final chapters kicked the book into high gear but not enough to gain a higher rating from me. I kept wanting to know the truth (any truth!) and was underwhelmed by the book. I did enjoy the ending and I can’t say that I disliked this book because I enjoyed it, but it was on the slower side and l wanted just a tad bit more. This won’t stop me from reading more of this Author in the future.

Thank you to Kensington Books and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my own.
