Publisher's Summary

A young mother has done everything possible to put the past behind her, but it might not be enough in a gripping novel of suspense by the Amazon Charts bestselling author of the Jane Doe novels.

Abandoned by her fugitive ex-husband, Lily Brown is rebuilding her life on the edge of a Kansas town that still feels the sting of his crimes. Lily lies low, managing the isolated storage facility where she lives with her twelve-year-old son, Everett, and planning a better future for them both. That requires keeping secrets. Everett has them too.

After breaking into a storage unit, Everett finds photographs and news clippings of five girls missing for decades. For Everett, it’s an adventure and a tempting mystery to solve. But digging further into a stranger’s obsession is putting Everett and his mother in the crosshairs of a killer.

Then Lily’s ex resurfaces from the shadows. Just as suddenly, an attentive new man enters Lily’s life. And a suspicious detective, responding to reports of a prowler, watches every move Lily makes. It’s getting harder for Lily to know who to trust—or whose secrets pose the most frightening threat of all.

Review

I did not finish the book. What I read was so dramatically over the top, and the narrator had such a whispery, simpering voice that I had to just stop.

blah

The author threw in a handful of the usual mystery thriller tropes, mixed in a public storage space setting, and added in a dash of woefully stereotypical and underdeveloped characters. The result: a flat, predictable, forgettable, unremarkable waste of time, with the laughably ridiculous, but all too necessary, villian big reveal explanatory monologue at the end.

I expected it to be good!

What a lousy book!!! I picked this up because Victoria Helen Stone had written one of my top favorite books "Jane Doe", of which I gifted a copy to several of my friends, yeah it was that good! I also had recognized Sarah Mollo-Christensen name knowing her to be a good solid narrator.
What a disappointment the protagonist turned out to be... so full of self doubt and fear I ended up yelling at her, she was cringe worthy... and that incredibly awful fear that her 12 year old son may have inherited the "embezzle gene" from his father, is just imbesilic... Blek, blek, blek. And even part of the story seemed to revolve around that... is stupid, so stupid!
I even ended up being sorry for SM-C as she soldiered on.

Predictable

Nothing shocking about the storyline. Not really a mystery. Author added that the 12 yo boy is gay. Then says the other boy that is gay at his school is a bully because he wears a Trump hat to school. Nonsensical. Why even add that into the story? If I want to hear political opinions, I would read a political op ed. And the narrator was so breathy that it was difficult to finish. I rarely leave books unfinished and that is the only reason I completed this one. Don’t waste a credit. Glad this one was free from kindle.

The choices we make…

Single mom, Lily, is managing a storage facility because it provides a home for herself and her son. Her ex was a conman who ran away with lots of money so living on the edge of town works for Lily. Not so much for her 12yo son, Everett. He’s the only kid around so he spends his time sneaking into units for fun. Until the contents of one unit spooks him. Everett and his new friend search for clues while Lily tries to keep a detective at bay…he’s looking for her husband. Very complicated story but if you stick with it, the ending will answer all the questions!

engaging and different

I really enjoyed this book because it wasn't the usual detective or murder novel. While I was frustrated at times with the characters constantly blaming themselves for everything (and maybe that was the intent) I found myself routing for them all along. The culmination was truly a surprise. well done!

The reader ruined the book for me. In future I will listen to sample before buying

I’d give it zero stars

I read books for enjoyment -not to hear political crap. I’d give it zero stars. Also, 7 chapters in and I still wasn’t really interested or hooked.

Another good read.listen

I bought this author’s first book from Audible on a lark and have been bying, and enjoying, every one of her books since. This is a character driven, slow moving story with lots of twists and turns and a satisfying, happy ever after ending.

Couldn’t listen!

I had to stop listening after a couple of minutes because the narrator sounded like a GPS voice!

Had to give the story 1 star because I couldn’t leave a review otherwise and I don’t know if the story is any good.
