Publisher's summary

A brilliant, twisty novel about a missing woman, an unfaithful husband, and the dark secrets that will destroy two perfect families.

A scandalous revelation is about to devastate a picturesque town where the houses are immaculate and the neighborhoods are tightly knit. Devoted mother Cora O’Connell has found the journal of her friend Laurel’s daughter - a beautiful college student who lives next door - revealing an illicit encounter. Hours later, Laurel makes a shattering discovery of her own: her daughter has vanished without a trace. Over the course of one weekend, the crises of two close families are about to trigger a chain reaction that will expose a far more disturbing web of secrets. Now everything is at stake as they’re forced to confront the lies they have told in order to survive.

Good ,but too long

Interesting plot but way too but characters thoughts are way too long. Almost gave it three stars ,except the multiple story lines kept my interest and kept me listening. I notice in all these psychological thrillers, the men are all jerks if not down right sociopaths.

Just OK

This is a somewhat gripping thriller - although the sappy title is a very good indicator of what lies within. Cora, the obsessed mother of twin toddlers, is unbearable. The other characters only less so.
