A novel of suspense in which a girl from a hardscrabble small town meets a gorgeous Instagram influencer from the big city, with a murderous twist.
On a beautiful October morning in rural Maine, a homicide investigator from the state police pulls into the hard-luck town of Copper Falls. The local junkyard is burning, and the town pariah Lizzie Oullette is dead—with her husband, Dwayne, nowhere to be found. As scandal ripples through the community, Detective Ian Bird’s inquiries unexpectedly lead him away from small-town Maine to a swank city townhouse several hours south. Adrienne Richards, blonde and fabulous social media influencer and wife of a disgraced billionaire, had been renting Lizzie’s tiny lake house as a country getaway…even though Copper Falls is anything but a resort town.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Lizzie Oullette is telling her story - after she was murdered. Shot in the head. Her family was always thought of as trash, and she even grew up in a junkyard. She tried to lead an unremarkable life and eventually married Dwayne as she had a pregnancy scare. Now that Lizzie has been murdered, he is the key suspect, and is nowhere to be found.
Even though her life was very uncertain, and was bullied as a child, despite the fact that her father was a heavy drinker, he protected her as best he could. Now that a lot of the story is being told from her point of view, it is a lot like memories, memories of a very unfortunate life.
Lizzie is not the only character in this intriguing story by Kat Rosenfield. In fact, there is Detective Ian Byrd, and also a socialite named Adrienne Richards. It’s quite interesting to see how Lizzie and Adrienne had a connection and to what lengths Ian went to to solve the murder.
What a thrilling read! Impossible to put down even for one minute. Not only was I interested in the murder case, I was also very drawn into a Lizzie’s stories as she recounted her life. Then, when you consider the twist and turns in this book, as well as the shocking ending, it is one to be remembered.
Many thanks to William Morrow and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
