OrangeReviewStarWhen this first novel opens, narrator Angela is being questioned in a police interrogation room by a detective about the whereabouts of the missing wife of her ex-boyfriend. She recalls her move in high school to a Vermont small town where she befriends HP, a popular athlete. Friendship turns to romance, but a chance to attend a year of school in England forces Angela to put their budding relationship on hold. HP's surprise trip to visit Angela in England results in fateful encounter with an attractive student named Saskia. The love triangle that develops follows the trio back to Vermont. Relationships evolve and true feelings reveal themselves, demonstrating that those who we think we know are not always who they seem to be.
VERDICT Fans of Paula Hawkins and Ruth Ware will devour this twisty psychological thriller; Nay has expertly crafted a narrative that has the potential to veer in several directions, keeping readers enthralled and guessing until the end.
