Publisher's Summary

On a sweltering July morning in rural Tennessee, 50-year-old Rebecca Reynolds visits the family farm, where she literally stumbles across the mutilated bodies of her parents and younger sister, a sister who had spent life in a wheelchair after a birth fraught with complications.
Rebecca's first thought is to call 911. Her second is to find her estranged sister, Lena, who was disowned by the family years before. Her third is to wonder how long it will be before Lena is arrested for the murder of their family.
As the police gather evidence pointing to Lena, the sisters turn to attorney Brian Stone. Convinced of Lena's innocence, he agrees to take on the case. But in a family ripped apart by dysfunction, is anyone truly innocent?

Prepare to be deceived

This book, while it wasn't as good as the first of the series, was incredible in its huge build-up of suspense. I didn't know what to think, and the ending was shocking. No better word for it.

It was a strange tale, two sisters brought up in a poor environment. Family killed, only the two sisters survive. All evidence points to Lena, the worst of the two. So, Rebecca, along with Brian (the lawyer from the first book), help the court and the jury see her innocence. A difficult task when Lena has such a terrible memory of the event.

It was strange in the sense that it was dark, eerie at parts, yet at other times this darkness was subdued giving way to a lighthearted, deceptive sense of calm. I was glad to find Brian in this book, he being my favourite from the first of this series. Though, I would say that this book can be read as a standalone, but I do recommend you read the first- I found I liked that tale better. I feel it would have been interesting to hear Brian's thoughts regarding Anna's child, or even the father of the child.

I listened to the audio book for this, it was narrated by Michelle Babb. I really liked it, it felt fitting and gave a good feel to the book. The emotion was there, as was the way that even the narration didn't give much away- in terms of the ending.

Both stories are emotional and engaging in their own way. And as with life, you can say, a lot feels unresolved. This also happens to be something true of the first of this series.

I received this book from the narrator, for review consideration.
