Publisher's Summary

From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of When I'm Gone comes a compelling novel of a bond between sisters, tested by tragedy...

Ellie Brown thought she'd finally escaped her stifling hometown of Broadlands, Illinois; med school was supposed to be her ticket out. But when her father has a stroke, she must return home to share his care with her older sister, Amelia, who's busy with her own family. Working as a paramedic, Ellie's days are monotonous, driving an ambulance through streets she'd hoped never to see again.

Until a 911 dispatch changes everything. The address: her sister's house. Rushing to the scene, Ellie discovers that Amelia and her husband, Steve, have been shot in a home invasion. After Amelia is rushed to the hospital, Ellie tries to make sense of the tragedy. But what really happened inside her sister's house becomes less and less clear. As Amelia hangs on in critical condition, Ellie uncovers dark revelations about her family's past that challenge her beliefs about those closest to her...and force her to question where her devotions truly lie.

    "Not recommended."

    Struggled to finish bit I did make it! Predictable, did not enjoy the reader, and repetitive thoughts and behaviors throughout which made it boring.

    "Very good book and narration."

    This was a really good book. I liked the mystery and the back and forth between the sisters and the the time line.

    I like the characters and the story. I did not like the that the ending was a bit rushed and and made me feel like something was missing. But still a good story.

    Since this is a mystery I don't want to give any spoilers so I will keep my review brief. Just know this was very enjoyable and kept me listening.

    As for the narration it was amazing! Love Kate Rudd. She does such a great job with all the voices including the mens and everyone gets their own distinct voice. She reads with emotion and a very nice reading voice.

    "Tone it down"

    Liked it but struggled to finish it. Narration was little over the top. Normally I like Kate Rudd

    "Predictable"

    This was an easy Listen, but very predictable. Worth the credit but not the best I've ever listened to.

    "Ok entertainment"

    Story holds together loosely with several plot holes but is fast paced enough for a long car trip. I listened to it a 1.4 times normal speed

    "A Thoroughly Unlikeable Woman "

    The good daughter is smart and unlikeable and the good wife is stupid and unlikeable, and neither character gets any better as the chapters shuffle on....

    "Suspenseful"

    Loved the story and the characters. The author tells Amelia's story leading up to a tragic shooting, and her sister's story of dealing with the event, first as a paramedic then as the world sister. They're both dealing with they're father's illness, adding to the catastrophe that their lives have become. In addition, there's the mystery of who was the shooter.
