4 out of 5 stars
Lies, lies, lies, yeah. That song kept playing through my mind as I read this story. Two best friends with so many secrets between them, both unaware. We know someone dies from a fall right away but the getting there, that was a thing of beauty.
Lee is raising her son Mason alone. He is a very special child with the brain of an adult and some very special needs. Grace has been the one friend she can count on, even introducing her to Noah. He works with special kids and he has been a Godsend. Lee needs him in more ways than one. Grace has her own secrets and one that might just push Lee over the edge.
The past comes into play in the story and we find out how both of these women and Noah came to where they are. It plays big time into everything and is really the meat of the story. I was fascinated by it. Then comes the ending. The ending is extremely chilling and very surprising.
This is another good outing from Ms. Frey. She has a wonderful way with a suspenseful thriller and the story that gets you there. Not Her Daughter was another good read. I look forward to reading more from her.
Thanks to Netgalley and St. Martin’s for a copy of this book. The review is my own humble opinion.
