I asked to review this as an audiobook, which was given to me free through an app called Authors Direct. The book wasn't too long but I enjoyed every minute of it. This is the first book of the trilogy series and where it ends makes you want more, so you will want to check out the next book (which I don't have atm but this review is on this book only anyways) and likely want the third and final as well. I will say I wish the trilogy was an all-in-one book though.
This book has excellent well thought characters and very detailed descriptions that give you a feel for the world you are reading / hearing about. Listening to this book was very nice with the way you hear the thoughts of Reese.
The narrator did a good job in bringing this book to life though some of the character voices seemed to be a bit too close to each others so it's not something you want to listen to if you aren't paying attention to the dialog on who is speaking.
I received a free review copy of this audio-book and am voluntarily leaving am honest review.
When 17-year-old Reese first moved to the wealthy, lakeshore town of St. Clair over five years ago, she never expected someone like Charlotte Walters to take her under her wing. Charlotte is everything that Reese is not: rich, gorgeous, and carefree, living with her enigmatic older brother and her parents in a mansion at the top of the lake.
But when senior year starts, everything seems off. Reese notices that Charlotte’s older brother Aiden keeps coming back from college to hang around on weekends, stoic and grim. And Charlotte’s parents seem more distracted, almost lost. Meanwhile, Charlotte keeps insisting to Reese that nothing is wrong, and decides to host a Halloween party with the theme of “missing girls.”
That night, at the party, Charlotte goes missing.
Everyone who attended becomes an instant suspect, from Charlotte’s brother (who argued with Charlotte earlier that night), to Charlotte’s field hockey teammate (who wasn’t invited to the party in the first place), to Reese herself (who was the last person to see Charlotte alive, out near the lake).
With the clock ticking, Reese must unravel what happened to her best friend, and dig through the layers of secrets protecting people in St. Clair. Because now, being the quiet sidekick won’t cut it. And maybe only an outsider to St. Clair can truly confront all of the town’s dark mysteries.
