Description:

Katie and her husband Eric have made their daughter Devon the centre of their world. Talented, determined, a rising gymnastics star, Devon is the focus of her parents’ lives and the lynchpin of their marriage. There is nothing they wouldn’t do for her.

 

When a violent hit-and-run accident sends shockwaves through their close-knit community, Katie is immediately concerned for her daughter. She and Eric have worked so hard to protect Devon from anything that might distract or hurt her. That’s what every parent wants for their child, after all. Even if they don’t realize how much you’ve sacrificed for them. Even if they are keeping secrets from you…

 

A mother knows best… doesn’t she?

 

 

My View:

You might think you know what is going to happen, you might think you know what really happened…but you dont!

 

This is a book where the tension and the mystery sneaks up on you, it starts of feeling a little bit ordinary, an interesting fly on the wall perspective of elite sports; the sacrifices all family members make for the potential success of just one, the tight knit community dedicated to winning/to their child…to the sport but this is so much more.

 

This is a mystery, a story of guilt, parenting, family, love and winning at all costs! What a delightful wicked read! I loved how the author manages to sucker you in; you feel you know what is going to happen next, you anticipate the big reveal or should I say reveals? You think you know best…but you don’t!  Surprise after surprise!

 

This is an author I will definitely add to my Must Read List.

 

PS did I mention this very quiet unassuming character – the younger brother –Drew? Watch out for him – listen to his voice…

  1. Megan Abbott is one of my top noir/psychological suspense authors, Carol. I’m so glad you’ve gotten the chance to ‘meet’ her, and I hope you’ll look through her backlist. She is incredibly talented.
