Publisher's Summary

Jennifer has a great job and a go-getter fiancé. She's on track for success, until she witnesses a fatal hit-and-run. Mistaking Jennifer for someone else, the dying victim extracts an impossible promise. Jennifer's fiancé wants her to forget the whole incident, but when she closes her eyes, she can still see the bloody face of the woman who asked for her help. 

Olivia is in a rut. Burdened with caring for her brain-damaged brother and already feeling like a spinster at 27, she's desperate to escape. In a moment of weakness, she tells a lie that draws an unsuspecting paramedic into her life. As she struggles to expiate the lie, a horrible act of violence will test her resolve to be honest.

Where Jennifer's promise and Olivia's lie intersect, their lives begin to unravel.

Good, but not my fave Greenwood

Good, but not my favorite of Bryn Greenwood's. I really like Greenwood's unique writing style but the story and characters didn't resonate with me as much as her other books. The ending was a little unsatisfying as well.

One of the most cringey narration performances I’ve ever heard

It was hard to focus on the actual story because of the stereotyping the narrator performed… as well as just terrible voices, in general. I love Bryn Greenwood and I’m sure it all meant something. But I felt lost in the story, incredibly annoyed by the narration and just eager to be done with the book.

I was hoping it would be good

Readers idea of a black southern male accent, was offensive.
The voices for female lead was bad too. They both sounded weak . Difficult to get through.

Mediocre at Best

Bryn Greenwood is one of my favorite authors. 'All the ugly and wonderful things' and 'The Reckless oath we made' are 2 of my all time favorite books. In contrast this book is not memorable at all. It feels called in. Upon further investigation I think the reason for this is because this book predates the other two mentioned above. they didn't record the audio book until 2022 but the book was written in 2014 so maybe the author had not refined her writing style or storytelling yet. either way, save your credits for something else.
