Publisher's Summary

The mysterious drowning of her father brings previous, unresolved family tragedies back into focus for Lucy Schaffer. Dangerous secrets begin to surface as she finds herself pursued, both by a stalker and by a past that appears strangely incomplete. As summertime approaches, lingering clouds of guilt and terror gather on the horizon, and Lucy is compelled to unearth the horrifying secrets that lie buried in a place she may never leave again.

Not too sure this is a mystery...

Although listed in the 'mystery and thrillers' section I think that it should be in the general fiction section. The murders are largely incidental until the end. The story seems to be more about how the main character deals with the situation rather than finding out who committed the murders.
Another thing I found annoying was the narrator's voice. At times she sounded like a petulant child and others like an adolescent boy trying to be a man. It was all a bit off-putting.
I listened to the end though as it wasn't a complete disaster - I mean, I did award it 3 stars.
