Publisher's Summary

Sydney Whitmore, a forensic psychologist living in San Francisco, moves home to Shipwreck Island, and the resort owned and operated by her family, after tragedy strikes leaving her struggling for a way to make sense of things. After finding out about the assault of an old friend, which has left him comatose, she renews her relationship with Ezra Reinhold, a reclusive billionaire who enjoys poking around in cold cases and has the means to hire the best people to find the answers no one else has been able to. 

In book one in the series, a group of 10 high school students go camping but only 8 return. The statements of those who've made their way back that have been told to Sheriff Sam Stone are so different as to be completely useless. Syd has experience getting the truth out of people, so she agrees to help Sam weed though the witness statements to find the truth that both are certain exists beneath the lies. Meanwhile, Syd's middle sister, Emily, has started a new lifestyle blog, her youngest sister, Rory, is fostering kittens, and Syd renews her relationship with Kelly Green, an FBI analyst she first met while working for the FBI on the East Coast.

Not sure about this one

I am not sure if my issue is with the reader, editor, or director. Possibly a combination of all of those things. The female characters all sound like young teens rather than the mature women they are written to be, and this pulls me out of the story. I can tell that the “she said” and “she asked” phrases were all prerecorded then inserted as they do not flow with the narration, and that is jarring to my ear.

I really like Kathi Daley and can tell that this book is well written, but perhaps I need to skip the Audible version and stick with the Kindle version since I am not enjoying this narration.

loved the story but...

I love Kathi Daley's writing and read all of her books. l really like this new series and am interested to see where it goes. The narrator for this book was pretty good for the most part, she made a couple of the people sound really childlike but that was okay. While she was reading the dialog she did a great job BUT she had a very annoying way of saying the descriptive phrases at the end of a sentence "he said, she said, etc" almost turning them into a question - "The look on her face was priceless, " I said." becomes "The look on her face was priceless," I said?" If that could be fixed I'd give 5 stars across for everything.
