Publisher's Summary

Family ties so strong you can’t escape…

Mary Olivia Pentecost, known as Mop, was born into one of the wealthiest families in the country - and one of the most guarded. Now, two years after her mother’s mysterious death, Mop is seeking closure on the disquieting tragedy by returning to the New England seaside estate of her cloistered Aunty Liv - once her closest relative and confidante.

But behind the walls of the isolated estate, the shadows of the past are darker than Mop imagined. The puzzles of the family history are not to be shared, but unearthed. With each revelation comes a new, foreboding threat - and for Mop, the grave suspicion that to discover Aunty Liv’s secrets is to become a prisoner of them.

How well do we know the people we love? How well do we want to know them? The answers are as twisted as a tangle of vines in this throat-clutching novel of psychological suspense.

Delusional, rediculous at times but ended ok

I had a hard time with the repetition of thoughts and just wished it would go somewhere...too much drama, too much listening to deranged thoughts. It could have been condensed and still told a story without all of the babbling

Highly disappointed

I basically had to force myself to listen. Poor story. Just a stupid storyline with poor characters.

Too much swearing

I did not even get through the first chapter before I decided to stop listening to the almost constant swearing. While I prefer books with out any swearing at all. One occasionally can be tolerated, but I do not like the amount of swearing in this book. I would give this book no stars if it let me.

Great Audible

I really enjoyed listening to this. I like when Audible books have more than 1 person narrating. The story was good and kept me wanting more. The narration was the best I've heard, these women really did a great job acting this out. Thank you!

almost quit

I was so confused at first a almost quit this book several times in the first quarter or so. Then as I got more into it I just had to finish to find out what the heck was going on and the how would it end. Very different from what I normally read!

modern and extremely detailed version of Edgar Allan Poe’s "The Tell-Tale Heart" .

I felt like I was listening to a modern and extremely detailed version of Edgar Allan Poe’s "The Tell-Tale Heart" . It was a struggle sometimes but ended well.

In the vines is right

This was the craziest book I've read so far. It took until the middle of the book to start really getting into it, then I couldn't wait to see it thru .Narrators were excellent, Ms Kirk could have played down the Aunts craziness just a little, then I think the first half would have been better. But I still liked it.
