Winnie Crouch seems to be living the dream life in her enviable home in the prestigious Greenlake neighborhood of Seattle with husband Nigel and teenage son Samuel. Juno is an elderly former psychologist who left her home and family in Albuquerque and now resides with the Crouches. Juno soon questions whether the Crouches are living such an idyllic life when she overhears Nigel and Winnie whispering and learns they are harboring a life-altering secret. Juno becomes obsessed with exposing their secret and righting all wrongs, despite the consequences. Through the alternating chapters voiced by Juno and Winnie, readers are catapulted through a nail-biting quest toward the truth; neither woman will emerge unscathed.
VERDICT This book rates a 10 out of 10 on the creepiness scale. Readers will be peering over their shoulders with trepidation as their paranoia levels soar. Suspense fans will love being frightened by this twisty plot. Fisher’s (The Wives) goosebump-inducing book will spook readers long after the final pages are turned.
