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.

Good story

well written story but I disliked both sisters with theit constant denial. The end left me with even more dislike of Elle with her lying by omission to the man she is supposed to love. The story was interesting but the only likable characters were not the focus

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.

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.

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.

Suspense at it’s best.

This story kept me on edge until the last word.
That said I didn’t like the weakness of Amelia or Ellie. They both seem to live in La la land. I’m not sure why they both have such low self esteem and only value themselves in what the men in their lives think of them.
Amelia marries a man that she lives to question his love.
Ellie refuse to believe the man she’s grown to love and trust from childhood is a murder and thief. She covers his misdeeds and fails to tell her fiancée of his continued communication.
Evan the father has questionable character flaws. This all lead to a

Good story

There were points in the book where it felt like the narrator was reading to first graders. Much of the narration was fine but only 30% through book and had to comment.
