Goodreads:  Two years ago, Tom and Caroline Johnson committed suicide, one seemingly unable to live without the other. Their adult daughter, Anna, is struggling to come to terms with her parents’ deaths, unable to comprehend why they chose to end their lives. Now with a young baby herself, she feels her mother’s presence keenly and is determined to find out what really happened to her parents. But as Anna digs up the past, someone is trying to stop her. She soon learns that nothing is as it seemed.

Kritters Thoughts:  Clare Mackintosh knows how to write a mystery that is riveting from page one to the very last sentence.  A couple, Tom and Caroline Johnson commit suicide and leave their adult daughter behind to pick up the pieces.  In the aftermath, she falls in love with her therapist and they have a baby.  Through out all of this she misses her parents immensely wanting them to be there for the whole thing.  

The story starts when Anna is left a suspicious note and takes it to her local police department where she meets a retired police detective who is now working more of an admin like job at the station and he decides to take the note and investigation on himself.  And from there it is a fantastic ride.

It has twists and turns and I may have predicted one or two, but I was not in the least bit disappointed when I did, the story was that good!  I think Clare Mackintosh knows how to unveil bits and pieces at the right times to keep the reader reading at the fastest pace.  Be warned once you hit the last 80 pages, you won't be able to put this one down!

I like that Clare Mackintosh books are all self contained, so you can read one and be done.  I have read all of her US releases and will read all of her future ones!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel

Ebook 2018 Challenge: 23 out of 100
