Publisher's Summary

The brightest smiles hide the darkest secrets....

When Raven Ferragamo finds a stranger’s diary, she has no idea it will catapult her into the mystery of diamond heiress Lark Kingsley’s disappearance.

But Raven soon learns that Lark knew what was coming, and there was much more to her disappearance than the news headlines show. The more she discovers, the more Raven realizes that she and the girl born into Manhattan society aren’t so different after all. 

Now Raven can’t walk away from Lark’s pleas for help. But the deeper she goes, the more Raven realizes that she may end up ensnared in the dark secrets she seeks to unearth....

Raven!! Great Mystery

Love this, and can't wait for more in the series! Loved learning about Raven and the mystery surrounding Lark. Captivating and enthralling, I'm guessing and questioning, want to know more! I thought the story was great and loved the narration. It had me from the get-go, I'll definitely be listening to more by this author and narrator, loved it! Have to know what happens dammit! :) I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

First In Series

This is a great first in series laying the groundwork for the series. There are more questions than answers in this book and you must continue to the next book to get any answers. The story help my attention but I wish we were given some answers in this first installment. The characters are somewhat flat but I have hopes they grow as the story continues. The narrator did a superb job at bringing the story and characters to life and I would not hesitate to listen to other books narrated by her. I look forward to book 2 which will hopefully offer some answers to all of the questions I have.

A mystery that will keep you guessing...

I absolutely loved this story! I wasn't sure what to expect, but by the end of the story I was hooked. I loved the back and forth between timelines and the different clues that are encountered along the way. The cliffhanger ending left me wanting more and I can't wait for the next audio book to be released! I definitely found my next series to be addicted to. Amazing job Sophie Davis!

Haunting ...

Sophie Davis masters the psychological thriller. Darkness becomes your best friend, even as it remains your worst enemy. The chill lies in the unknown and Fragile Facade feeds on that uncertainty and never let's go. Raven stumbles into that blank space to help a stranger and may not survive the fall. Haunting nail biter.

Interesting Mystery

I enjoyed this mystery, although it ended in a cliffhanger. It was a relatively clean listen - there were some things alluded to, but not much language or explicit content, which I appreciated. I listened to it in a few days because the story was really interesting, like a Seinfeld episode where you can see the separate storylines coming together. I want to find out what happens to the main characters, since there was no real conclusion at the end of the book. The narrator was excellent, giving each of the characters their own distinct voices.

Start of a great series

This is definitely the start to an amazing series. I loved Raven and this book had me from the moment the first words were read. It kept me guessing and questioning the entire time. I would have enjoyed a few more answers in this book but will continue to find out more about this chilling mystery. I can’t wait to see what is next. The narrator did a fantastic job.

Definitely an interesting story!

Sarah Puckett is an amazing narrator but I felt like this genre could sometimes use a bit more action or tension than her soft voice produces. She just has such a lovely soothing voice that I dozed off quite a bit without meaning to so maybe that’s why I’m thinking it could use a bit more of an active sounding voice. To be fair, I was and am always tired so maybe I’m just too easily affected due to my illnesses but anyway, for some reason I’d rather have Sarah narrate more the fantasy kind than the contemporary kind of stories because I’m more actively shaping a fantasy world than a rather known world. The story is great. Mysterious through and through. The story goes back and forth between Lark’s perspection and Raven’s, so two different timelines but woven together so well that it reads as one continuous story. And because each chapters starts with the name of who’s point of view that chapter will be there’s never a confusion moment. What means we are left with a very clear and interesting story that always keeps you wondering just what, why and how. I love the storyline and the characters but I did end up with just a little bit too much questions to give the 5 stars. I’m very curious to see how the story will evolve.

So many questions still!

This book started a bit slow and I didn't really start getting into it until about halfway through. But by the end I was obsessed and I already had to start the next one. I still have so many unanswered questions! Like why isn't Lark worried about all the missing time?!? WTF! OMG there is just so much I need to know. Is this paranormal or something psychological? How?!? Also, this recording is quieter than most other audio books so I had to have prime listening conditions and you should've seen me jump at the "audible hopes you have enjoyed this production" blaring from the speaker because I had to have it maxed. But it's so worth it! I definitely recommend this book and I believe I'll listen to it again.

Keep you on the edge of your seat.

This story is a real page turner. From the beginning to the cliffhanging end. It is full of mystery, intrigue, lies, deception, compassion, and this is only the first book, what does the author Sophie Davis have lined up ahead for the missing Lark, and the young naïve Raven who has no idea what's a head in her investigation. I can't wait to listen. Sarah Puckett did a fantastic job keeping me on the edge of my seat so far in this arresting tale. Reviewed for Audiobook Obsession

this does end in a cliffhanger, BUT WHAT A STORY!!

I am not usually drawn to thrillers like this one. But this one grabbed my attention from the blurb. Not many books can do that. This story had me so confused in the best possible way. I just could not put it down, trying to predict what would be happening. My heart was just racing in certain parts. I just love Sarah Puckett and completely enjoyed her performance. I am eagerly dying to get into book 2. I have become a fan of Sophie Davis and will be looking for more of their work. A definite must listen. 🎧AudiobookObsession

Oh My Word! Clues Everywhere You Look

I honestly don't know where to start this review. The story of Lark Kingsley is an intriguing one. The only child, heir of the Kingsley Diamond dynasty, who realizes her life isn't so peachy. There are a lot of pretenses that has to be put on and she's not being her true self. But she's also been very secretive, which does not help matters. When she goes missing, the world needs to know what happened to her. Where is she? Is she hurt, or did she run away with a guy? For some unexplainable reason, the disappearance of Lark speaks to Raven. First, she finds a diary in her trunk and this leads Raven on a chase to find the clues and solve the case. She does so with the help of her downstairs neighbor, Asher. As she solves each clue, it brings her one step closer to finding Lark, but all the clues are bringing up more questions than answers. Can Raven solve the clues in time to save Lark? Psychological thrillers aren't typically my thing, but I could not put this down! Every time I thought I solved the case, another twist. There's something about Asher I don't trust, but I can't put my finger on it. I like Lark and Raven. There are moments when I really just want to shake Raven, but I get her logic. This book, along with Sarah Puckett's narration, had me going through all types of emotions. It gave me anxiety, wanting to know what happens next, is Lark going to be okay? Sarah's narration was brilliant. The personalities she supplied to each character was absolute perfection. It does end in somewhat of a cliffhanger, but it is so worth it! This book will have you wondering what will happen next. What will happen to Raven? Is Asher trustworthy? (That may just be me...) But I can't wait to read/listen to book 2! #AudiobookObsessionReviewer 🎧AudiobookObsessionReviewer

I WANT MORE

Raven stumbles upon a missing girl and a mystery when she agrees to move into an apartment while the original person is traveling abroad. She discovers that the girl's disappearance may have been more dark than anybody realizes. The more she searches the clues the further involved she gets. I loved this book. The further into it I read the more I wanted to. I loved the fact that this story was told in both perspectives. It added mystery and intrigue to the story. I am totally hooked on the characters and need to be all about their lives more right now! I couldn't get enough. I have too many questions that need answers. Normally, I'd go on about the things I didn't like. However, I loved everything about it. So, I'll just take the time to gush over the narrator. This is not the first book I've heard Sarah Puckett narrate. Oh my goodness is she talented! She brings the characters to life of all stories she narrates! I fully recommend her! This book was amazing, but it's got a cliff hanger. I fully recommend having the second book handy to delve right into. I wish I had it so I could just start immediately on it. I will find a way to get my hands on it and devour it! This has been an amazing book and I'm glad I read it!
