Everyone has a secret they will do everything to hide….

Twenty-five years ago, the body of 16-year-old Eve Knox was found in a cave near her home in the small town of Grotto, Iowa – discovered by her best friend, Maggie, and her sister, Nola . There were several suspects, including her boyfriend, Nick, but without enough evidence the case was finally closed.

For decades, Maggie was haunted by Eve’s death and that terrible night. Now a detective in Grotto and seven months pregnant, she is thrust into the past when new evidence emerges and the case is reopened. As Maggie investigates and reexamines the clues, the mystery of what really happened begins to emerge. But someone in town knows more than they’re letting on, and they’ll stop at nothing to bury the truth.

I have read every book written by Heather G. and will continue to read. This book is intense, suspenseful, and full of interesting characters. Not disappointed at all. Although there are negative reviews stating that none of the characters are likable, I cannot agree. There were a lot of characters I didn’t like and some I did. That’s the point of any kind of suspense/thriller novel or movie, if the characters’ personalities are fleshed out well enough that you find them more hateful or desirable than the author/writer did their job. The only reason I didn’t give this movie 5 stars is because the ending was a bit predictable for me from the start, but I’m one of those people who over-analyzes and focuses on every little detail. However I still can’t put this down. It’s a great read and I absolutely recommend it.
