Publisher's Summary

For several years, time and circumstance have managed to separate Hallie Knight and her old friend Susan Trench. But when Susan disappears from her grandfather's seaside home on historic Topsail Island, it is Hallie whom Nicholas Trench calls for help. Wealthy, ill, and irascible, he refuses to believe that his beloved granddaughter and the heir to his fortune has been lost to him. He is certain that if anyone can find Susan, it will be her closest friend, the woman who knows her better than anyone else. When Hallie arrives from California, she finds the old man surrounded by an odd collection of friends and relatives, all of whom seem to know a little more than they're willing to tell about Susan Trench and her last days on Topsail. As the threads intertwine, Hallie must confront painful questions that build toward what may be a fearful answer.

Kinda run of the mill book

This is a bit bland. Definitely gripping enough to keep you listening but it's not a very strong story and, I don't know, lacks a cutting edge, or sarcasm, or cynicism, something to make you laugh out loud.

Sweet story about rich people who lust, lie, cheat

There is a lot of suspense in this story. The main one is what happened to Susan? Why her grandfather has summoned her best friend in college to help solve the mystery of her disappearance is interesting. (I do not think that one police officer appeared in this story) This is a book version of a future Lifetime movie. Readers peek into the lives of the rich and famous. Flying across the United States to help find a friend, retrieve a lost wife, and finding another lost wife who is just across the island. It is something to listen to while gardening or cleaning or painting your house.
