Boy, Ole Boy, did this family have secrets…and lies – lots and lots of lies.

This book took me some time to get the hang of it. I really didn’t enjoy the book until well after the halfway mark. The story was good enough to keep my attention, but there were quite a few characters with quite a bit of issues and it was hard to keep track of everyone. Plus, they are all a pack of liars! WHEW! Plus, I think the switching from character to character made things confusion. I had a hard time keeping track of who was who, how are they related to this person or that person, etc.

As the blurb tells us Rachel Porter’s estranged Mother has passed away. Rachel goes home with trepidation knowing her past will be dredged up. She will have to face those she has left behind and that will not be an easy task. To make things worse, dead bodies have been found. Everyone becomes a suspect. Stressful!?! You betcha! Rachel also has a seizure disorder which is triggered by stress, so she is not having the most enjoyable family reunion.

Past loves, past lovers, family secrets, murder, lies, affairs, molestation are just a few of the things touched on in this book. Unfortunately, it was just good at best for me. As I stated this book was hard to get into but once I got past the half way mark it was an okay read. Everything does seem to fall together in the end, but it didn’t blow me away. Some may call this predictable. I wished the characters had been fleshed out more. I don’t really feel like I knew any of them and that also hinder my ability to enjoy this book.

I received a copy of this book from HQ Digital and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
