When Arden Mayes was six years old she was swept underground in a storm, where she remained for days until she was finally found. After the whirlwind of media coverage and even her mum’s book on the event, Arden decides to leave her home town – Widow Hills – and start over. With a new name, Olivia, she sets off to make a new life.
Before long, Olivia receives news of her mother’s death. She doesn’t grieve, not really. Their relationship was a complicated one.
Everything seems fine until Olivia wakes up outside – next to a dead body. This opens up a lot of questions. To complicate things more, it turns out this body belonged to the man who rescued Arden all those years ago. How did he find her? What was he doing outside her house? And why is he dead?
Things only get more complicated from there. Olivia thought she had left her past behind, but it doesn’t seem to be true. She begins to dig up secrets, huge secrets. It’s about time the world knew the truth about what happened in Widow Hills.
This was a really gripping book, with so many interesting discoveries and twists. There was a good amount of emotion, too, and definitely a fair bit of loss. Definitely a good read if you’re into thrillers. 4 out of 5 stars!
