Publisher's Summary

In the fourth Widow’s Island novella by Wall Street Journal bestselling author Kendra Elliot, the truth of a twenty-year disappearance will finally come to light.

When the town drunk ends up dead in a hit-and-run, FBI special agent Cate Wilde expects that solving the case will be cut and dried. But evidence quickly surfaces that the victim was involved with another crime. A crime that has gone cold for twenty years. A crime of personal importance to Cate.

Cate’s best friend, Samantha, went missing at fourteen, leaving behind nothing except a jacket and an island full of unanswered questions. Samantha’s disappearance has haunted Cate for more than half her life, and she might finally be able to find some closure.

But not everything is as it seems. As Cate unravels what happened on that fateful day, she’ll discover that the community of Widow’s Island is full of secrets. Betrayed by someone she thought she knew, Cate will need to piece together the truth...before someone else gets hurt.

Too dark for me

This is a short book. I didn't enjoy it although I like the characters. There is too much darkness for me. It felt heavy. I did like the ending. The narration is good.

Disappointing

This book was not up to Kendra Elliot’s usual standards. The performance was good, and I am always willing to suspend disbelief for a good story, but the story line felt like a soap opera and I just couldn’t do it.

It only took one thing to shake the truth free

So much better than the 3rd book. There are just way to many secrets on this island.

Twisting

Well that was a surprising twist. This was a great addition to the series. It was good to finally know what happened to Sam. If you have liked this series you will like this book. It will be fun to find out what happens next.

Everything I hoped for and more

Heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. I didn't know whether to be angry or to cry and found myself doing both with all the happenings in this series. I am looking forward to the next book and wish it was coming out a lot sooner.

We finally learn what happened to Cate’s friend...

In this episode...the investigation into a hit-and-run leads to clues to what happened to Cate and Tessa’s friend, Samantha, 20yrs ago. You’ll never see it coming! Great ending to this novella series.
