Rating: 3 out of 5.

This was a fun, twisty mystery about three adults that grew up together in an abusive group home. After several kids went missing the group home was shut down and they all went their separate ways. All three became successful but troubled adults and had no contact with each other until someone started trying to kill them. They eventually get together to solve the mystery, causing them to re-live some of the trauma they endured growing up.

This book started off really well and it kept me interested. I liked Jenna and her storyline. She really seemed to want to live a different life with her husband and step-kids and was determined to use her skills to keep that safe. The other two guys, Donnie and Nico, were a hot mess and that didn’t really change throughout the book. I wasn’t as interested in their story. As the book progressed things became more outlandish and I lost interest. For me, all of the flashbacks to the group home dragged the story down and could have been trimmed to keep the story moving. But look, I’m a hard reviewer and I think a lot of people will like this book. I didn’t dislike it, it just wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press, Minotaur Books. All opinions are my own.
