Kat and Scott Hamilton are dealing with the hardest of losses: the death of their only child. While Scott throws himself back into his law practice in Los Angeles, Kat is hesitant to rejoin the workplace and instead spends her days shell-shocked and confused, unable to focus. When an unwelcome face from Kat's past in England emerges - the beautiful and imposing Sarah Cherrington - Kat's marriage is thrown into a tailspin. Now wealthy beyond anything she could have imagined as a girl, Sarah appears to have everything she could need or want.

this book was a struggle to finish. it was pretty boring, nothing exciting really happens. the main character is a sad, pathetic woman who tries to blame her crappy life on another woman instead of realizing that her patheticness ruined her own life. not worth your time to read unless you like to be bored.

Mary Olivia Pentecost, known as Mop, was born into one of the wealthiest families in the country - and one of the most guarded. Now, two years after her mother’s mysterious death, Mop is seeking closure by returning to the New England seaside estate of her cloistered Aunty Liv - once her closest confidante. But behind the walls of the isolated estate, the shadows of the past are darker than Mop imagined. With each revelation comes a new, foreboding threat - and for Mop, the grave suspicion that to discover Aunty Liv’s secrets is to become a prisoner of them.

Kat and Doug felt like Aurora Village was the perfect community. Minutes from the city, affluent without pretension, low crime with a friendly vibe - it’s everything Kat never had, and that she’s determined to provide for her infant daughter. But everything changes overnight when Kat finds a scrawled note outside their front door. That wasn’t very neighborly of you. As increasingly sinister and frighteningly personal notes arrive, each one stabs deeper into the heart of Kat’s insecurities, paranoia, and most troubling, her past.

very slow book. nothing exciting happens until the very end, I struggled to get through it. I kept hoping it would get interesting, but unfortunately it never happened. the main character is a pathetic woman, which doesn't help the story.
