Black-Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin
Appeared on the August 2015 LibraryReads list

“In 1995, Tessie went out for a run, and she went missing. She was found eventually, a surviving victim of the Black-Eyed Susan serial killer. The supposed killer is in prison, yet Tessie is still being plagued by mysterious Black Eyed Susan flowers blooming where they shouldn’t. The viewpoint shifts between Tessie in the present day and teenage Tessie in 1995, and was quite clever. I think this novel will appeal to fans of Gone Girl.”—Shannon Fukumoto, Kapolei Public Library Kapolei, HI
