This was one of my favorite books of the summer. I flew through this book. I really enjoyed Heidi Perks as an author. I loved all the twists and turns and the character development of both Charlotte and Harriet. I was on the edge of my seat worrying about where her daughter had gone or if she was still alive! This is a great read for a trip or if you have several hours on the beach or at a pool. You won’t regret reading this suspenseful thriller!
