Carmen becomes obsessed with finding out what happened to her husband’s ex-partner, Zena. She knew Zena had drowned months before she met Tom, but when she uncovers details he kept from her, Carmen become suspicious about what actually happened to Zena and begins digging, not having any idea where her questions would take her.
The premise of this novel sounded intriguing and it starts off very well, but somewhere in the middle of deciding whether her marriage is viable or not, I lost my connection as a reader to Carmen.
The conclusion of the mystery wasn’t entirely predictable but by the time I’d reached the end the point of the story seemed less relevant and I couldn’t believe Carmen had stuck around as long as she had around this toxic family.
An OK read but far from a memorable psychological thriller this year.
