Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside - the woman who was killed. She's been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It's a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. Her husband would be furious if he knew she'd broken her promise not to take that shortcut home. And she probably would only have been hurt herself if she'd stopped.

Most of the book is spent trying to convince the reader Cass thinks she is going mad while it is painfully obvious what is happening . The most annoying part are the text messages read with date & time... one after another
I do not recommend this book, sorry to say.

Daniel James Brown's robust book tells the story of the University of Washington's 1936 eight-oar crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans. The sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the boys defeated elite rivals first from eastern and British universities and finally the German crew rowing for Adolf Hitler in the Olympic games in Berlin, 1936.

I know her inside out. I know what she’s thinking, I know what she wants. So I can’t give up on her, she knows I never will. Some friendships fizzle out. Rachel and Clara promised theirs would last forever. They met in high school when Rachel was the shy, awkward new girl and Clara was the friend everyone wanted. Instantly, they fell under each other’s spell, and nothing would be the same again. Now they are in their late twenties, and Rachel has the television career, the apartment, and the boyfriend, while Clara’s life is spiraling out of control.

This book was on the same level as Gone Girl and girl on a train, both of which I really enjoyed! The writing was top-notch and the reader was very good, I had to laugh at her pronunciation of words with emphasis on the wrong syllable ( on purpose?) frustration was one of them, although she did all the voices expertly! I did not see the ending coming at all which I really appreciated.
