"After their mother passes, three estranged siblings reunite to sort out her estate. Beth, the oldest, never left home. She stayed with her mom, caring for her until the very end. Nicole, the middle child, has been kept at arm's length due to her ongoing battle with a serious drug addiction. Michael, the youngest, lives out of state and hasn't been back to their small Wisconsin town since their father ran out on them seven years before. While going through their parents' belongings, the siblings stumble upon a collection of home videos and decide to revisit those happier memories. However, the nostalgia is cut short when one of the VHS tapes reveals a night back in 1999 that none of them have any recollection of. On screen, their father appears covered in blood. What follows is a dead body and a pact between their parents to get rid of it, before the video abruptly ends. Beth, Nicole, and Michael must now decide whether to leave the past in the past or uncover the dark secret their mother took to her grave"--… (more)

I picked this book because it came up as a book set in Wisconsin which is my theme this week. After that I learned that I had read another book by this author.

I am happy to say that I enjoyed this book more than the other one. It felt complete and yet still allowed for the "twisty" ending that I like in a good murder mystery. Knowing all this I would definitely read other books by this author. ( )

Though I struggled with identifying redeemable qualities in the characters, I thought the multiple perspectives in the book were interesting and enjoyed the book. I did not see the twist. ( )

Straightforward storyline and despite that the mystery is suspenseful and intriguing, I felt the plot twist was common and ordinary and didn't radiate a jaw-dropping experience. However, for those who are new to thrillers, this book is for you. Nevertheless, I am still interested in reading her other novel. ( )

This was so unhinged I was like what in the world am I reading.. but I loved it. Family thriller that hit all the right vibes if your a thriller fan. Highly recommend. ( )

2024 read. I needed something to read while sitting in a waiting room, waiting, and this fit the bill. A bit of mystery, sibling relationships, addiction, loss of a parent all wrapped together. I must admit I skimmed the arguments, because I'd rather have mystery than angst waiting for someone to get out of surgery. My first Geneva Rose book (I think), but I wouldn't say no to another. ( )
