Publisher's Summary

From the bestselling author of Burying the Honeysuckle Girls comes a riveting novel about a mother and daughter separated by grief, secrets, and a conspiracy that threatens to destroy their lives.

If there’s a healthy way to grieve, Erin Gaines hasn’t found it. After her husband’s sudden death, the runaway success of the tech company they built with their best friends has become overwhelming. Her nerves are frayed, she’s disengaged, and her frustrated daughter, Shorie, is pulling away from her. Maybe Erin’s friends and family are right. Maybe a few weeks at a spa resort in the Caribbean islands is just what she needs to hit the reset button…

Shorie is not only worried about her mother’s mental state but also for the future of her parents’ company. Especially when she begins to suspect that not all of Erin’s colleagues can be trusted. It seems someone is spinning an intricate web of deception - the foundation for a conspiracy that is putting everything, and everyone she loves, at risk. And she may be the only one who can stop it.

Now, thousands of miles away in a remote, and oftentimes menacing, tropical jungle, Erin is beginning to have similar fears. Things at the resort aren’t exactly how the brochure described, and unless she’s losing her mind, Erin’s pretty sure she wasn’t sent there to recover - she was sent to disappear.

Horrible

I could not believe this was written by Emily Carpenter. I loved all her other books. It started out nicely only to go worse and worse each chapter. Ridiculous dialogs, silly talks... It felt like written by a teen ager. I am very disappointed.

Not my favorite

Emily is very talented writer but this one is a lot of the same. It was slow in the beginning and
Unrealistic at the end - but it is fiction.

That last 5min ending!

This one is the best I’ve read of Carpenters books so far. She is really good at her hooks and twists. Her characters are believable and I was able to connect to them pretty early on in the story.
There is a format to her style; southern women, island settings, lost books and lack of a father with a stand in type dad in the wings.
I’m glad I picked the up from Kindle unlimited with free audiobook. Paid for the monthly fee in 2 audiobooks.

Not my favorite

I’ve read all of Emily carpenters books at this point in this one was definitely not my favorite. It was a little drawn out.But if you’ve not read her books you might enjoy it. I just have others to compare it to and so therefore I didn’t enjoy it as much as I have her others. Good suspense, fair story, characters were OK but I think I have figured everything out at the very beginning of the bookAnd the things I hadn’t figured out I didn’t really care about.

Narration or story?

I listen to a lot of books and I have to say that with this book I don't know if the narration or the story was the worst! It was just awful all around! Not worth the credit or a dollar!
