ABOUT THE BOOK: Published August 1st 2017 by Gallery Books
The only thing more dangerous than a lie...is the truth.

Josie Buhrman has spent the last ten years trying to escape her family’s reputation and with good reason. After her father's murder thirteen years prior, her mother ran away to join a cult and her twin sister Lanie, once Josie’s closest friend and confidant, betrayed her in an unimaginable way. Now, Josie has finally put down roots in New York, settling into domestic life with her partner Caleb, and that’s where she intends to stay. The only problem is that she has lied to Caleb about every detail of her past—starting with her last name.

When investigative reporter Poppy Parnell sets off a media firestorm with a mega-hit podcast that reopens the long-closed case of Josie’s father’s murder, Josie’s world begins to unravel. Meanwhile, the unexpected death of Josie’s long-absent mother forces her to return to her Midwestern hometown where she must confront the demons from her past—and the lies on which she has staked her future.


MY REVIEW:
God I wanted so badly to punch Poppy Parnell in the teeth!
Speed read this stand alone debut novel, and although the twisty turns are rather predictable, this was a very enjoyable read.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I enjoyed this. I have watched a couple of mini series where citizens get involved in trying to solve historical crimes so this was sort of familiar territory. Always fascinated in how so many people want to be close to a crime.
What I think this did reasonably well was explore the impact of a murder on the survivors.
Podcasts and blogs I have resisted going down that rabbit hole - too many books to read. I am amazed at how popular they are.
